Component differences in production storages
Retrograde consumption or incorrect confirmations raise regular recurrent stock differences of components in production storages. The gap between the planned and the actual consumption of components are detected periodically by the TraceCenter. The difference cannot be assigned to only one order, but there is an order overlapping relation between orders and the stock difference.
The system SAP® cannot solve this problem sufficiently. The existing solution of SAP®, the allocation by a cost object hierarchy, is limited to certain order categories. The assessment or the distribution as a part of the month-ending processing are running with a delay and cannot fulfil a real time controlling requirement. Manual completion confirmation are cost driving or impossible due to process restrictions. Many enterprises post the stock differences in these cases to a cost centre. The relation to an order or the manufactured product gets lost.
A result of missing order confirmations is an incomplete order controlling and profit analysis.
