Excessive calculation of Activity (FOH) during confirmation

Post by SUHAILAKHTAR » Sat Mar 01, 2008 5:12 am

We have defined the formaula for factory overhead as under:

ZPBFOH = Z_FOVH * SAP_09 / SAP_08

With indicators:
_ Generate
_ Allowed for calculation

Z_FOVH is:
Origin : Standard value in the operation
Parameter text: FOH
Keyword : Factory Overhead
Dimension : AAAADL
Standard value unit : EA

SAP_09 is:
Origin : General Op value
Std value: 1.00
Filed name: MGVRG

SAP_08 is:
Origin : General Op value
Std value: 1.00
Filed name: BMSCH


But during our process order confirmations sometime the system is calculating highly excessive quantity of FOH (It is usually when partial confirmations are done.) It goes to double of the actual.

Can any please suggest a solution.

Our labor confirmations were being inflated because:

1) We used CO11N
2) Clicked "Actual Data"
2) Confirm partial qty
3) Failed to adjust labor rates brought in from clicking the actual data button.

So we would confirm maybe 3 of 10 on the order, but labor for 10. The second confirmation would be for 7 at labor rate for 7. So total would be confirm 10, labor for 17.

We changed config so that "Activities are recalculated due to quantity change." So in the case of the confirmation for 3, the system recalculated the labor for 3.

Ours was a process issue.

in our case we are confirming production in phases.
On the first phase the system does re-calculates the actiities.
But the problem is on last phase when the sytem picks the excess activity.

What we have observed;

The system calculate correct activity qty when "confirmation type" is selected before punching in the process order # on COR6N screen.

In our case we have three options :
_ partial
_ final
_ authomatic final (default) --- this option calcualte excessive qty.

birdiemaker; where in spro did you change the config in your case.
