SAP Inventory Management

Manufacturing Plants for a SAP material list is some times it is tricky.

In this post, I will explain 2 methods to retrieve the list of Plant who manufacter a Product.

It is the internal Plants to company of course who produce the SAP material.

The First Method is based on SAP Production Order
The second method is based on SAP Plant Data.

Manufacturing Plants Based on Production Order

The main table to retrieve list of Manufacturing Plants for a SAP material can be found by joining the SAP table MSEG ( for SAP Stock Movement ) and SAP Table AFPO ( for SAP Production Order).

Check this book about Implementing SAP Manufacturing Execution (SAP ME).

First Retrieve the lines from MSEG with:

  • Batch number
  • Your Material
  • Document Year
  • Movement Type ( BWART ) set to 101.

With the entrie retrieved, query the SAP AFPO ( Production Order Table ) with the Production Order Numlber AUFNR retrieved from MSEG.

The AFPO gives you the following information:

  • AFPO-DWERK : The manufacturing plants
  • AFPO-PWERK: The planning Plant
  • AFPO-LGORT: The Storage Location

By selecting all the line of MSEG, you can retrieve from the SAP Production Orders historical Data, all the SAP Manufact. for your material.
