Bottling Production Structure
The Bottling Structure type on the Production Structure provides the ability to bottle items in different units of measure. Thus, a rapid handling of the filling or decanting is possible.
In this type of production structure, only the packaging materials or filling periods that are necessary for bottling are defined. The Item Bottling page handles the transformation from one unit of measure to another, such as 10 liter units of paint to 4 liter units of paint; but it does not handle the 4 liter package and the processing time. To handle this, a Bottling Structure is created with the 4 liter package and the time for packaging.
When certifying the Bottling Structure, the Production BOM and Routing are not copied to the item.
Only certified Bottling Structures can be used in the Item Bottling page.
Certified production structures that match the unit of measure are searched when a value is entered in the New Unit of Measure Code field.
The Avail. Production Structures field displays all the production structures that match the unit of measure. If only one exists, the Production Structure and related Production BOM and Routing are assigned in the Production Structure FastTab.
If multiple production structures match the unit of measure, one must be selected manually in this FastTab. The Production BOM and Routing can also be selected manually. When the production order is created, the information in this FastTab is used.
If there is a lot of movement, such as to KG, there is no initial difference in the outcome.
For example, 300 KG from a lot must be filled into 10 L buckets, so 300 is entered into the Qty. to Handle field on the relevant KG line. When this item bottling selection is posted, 30 10 L buckets are produced from the same lot and the Remaining Quantity on the originating line is reduced by the 300 units.

The capacity of the work center in the Bottling Structure has been posted. Using the Bottling Structure does not change the speed of production but provides a substantial advantage by using a correct unit of measure calculation.
