Components & operations in SAP PP routing

In SAP routings the purpose of component assignment is to avoid excess buffer inventory. By default, all components are assigned to the first operation in a routing. In reality, however, most components might only be required much later in the production process. In such cases it makes sense to adjust component assignment to operations in a routing.

How to conduct component allocation

Enter the routing header.

Enter the operations overview.

Select the operation of interest and enter the operation overview screen.

Click the “CompAlloc” button.

A table with all components will appear – now:

  • highlight the component of interest
  • click the “New assignment” button
  • specify the operation number 
  • click “approve” or press enter
  • the specified operation number is now mapped to the highlighted component
