You can specify in the control key of an operation, that the system should automatically post the finished material to stock when the operation is confirmed. A posting is also carried out for a partial confirmation.

An automatic goods receipt can only be posted for one operation per order. You should therefore make sure that only one operation in the order (normally the last operation) has a control key that specifies automatic goods receipt.

Note Note

Automatic goods receipt can be activated by the production scheduling profile. It is always carried out during the confirmation of the last operation that requires confirmation. However, the indicator in the production scheduling profile is ignored as soon as one of the operations in the order has a control key that specifies automatic goods receipt.

The following applies to production scheduling profiles:

End of the note.
  • The Production Scheduling Profile is defined in Customizing

  • You can assign the profile to an order either by using the material master record (work preparation screen) of the material to be produced or the production scheduler (Customizing).

If several operations in an order have a control key that specifies automatic goods receipt, the system issues a warning message when you confirm one of them. No automatic goods receipt posting is carried out to prevent the goods receipt from being posted more than once. In this case, you have to post the goods receipt manually.

Note Note

In collective orders, an automatic goods receipt is only possible for the leading order. The "Automatic goods receipt" indicator has no effect in operations of dependent orders.
