|In PM how to Return Material
Blackflushing does not mean returning of material to stores.
With backflush infact the component allocated
in BOM get consumed at the time of operation/order confirmation.
If you set the backflush then all materials allocated to the Work Order will get issued from stores automatically. So there is no need to do a separate MB1A or MIGO Goods Issue.
To return item to store you will have to do a
reversal from WO back to stores using Movement Type 262.
I want to issue spares in advance to engineers
without a service work order....Later on the spares will get consumed or
will get returned. How do I do it...and what is the Movement type
to be used for issuing and reversing........can any one help.
Still I have problem in back flushing. Suppose
I made the indicator of backflush in creation of order, then I completed
technically, then the actual cost of material not updating, (Note I have
not posted the material in MB1A) what is the problem, pls tell me.
Did you confirm your maintenance order? Unless
you confirm it (IW41) your actual cost will not be updated. Backflushing
is a tool so that during confirmation you will not anymore input your
I believe T-Code IW41 is used to confirm the operation
and not for materials. When backflush indicator is set in the order
for the components reserved then MB1A need not be done and when we say
determine cost thru the main menu, the material cost should appear.
Actually IW41 works like CO11 (PP module), when you tick the backflush indicator in the order creation the system will automatically copy those materials when you confirm it.
Try doing these steps:
1. Create order (IW31)
I hope this clarifies everything.
Thank you so much. Yes it works......thanks
I feel in the same order when we want to calculate
the labour charges involved in particular operations we need to go thru
IW41 and confirm the operations so that we can get the labour charges for
the personnal involved in that order.(this will be done by way of calculating
the Activity types).
Your right material cost is automatically copied into the order thru IW31 but these costs are only planned cost. Meaning no accounting documents is being created and no materials being consume to the order only reservations.
If you want to have the actual cost reflected you have to go thru IW41 first.
