Assigning components to operations in SAP PP routings

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
