Production Material Request

This business function enables you to use a production material request to manage and execute material staging for production orders and process orders in SAP EWM. Production material requests cannot be used in the areas of repetitive manufacturing or Kanban. Using a production material request means that you no longer have to stage materials using deliveries in SAP ERP. This reduces the amount of deliveries required in SAP ERP and also affords a greater degree of flexibility to SAP EWM.

Before you can use production material requests, you must establish a distribution model for SAP EWM integration. The distribution model must include the StageEWMParts method of the ManufacturingOrder business object.

You must also define a control cycle in which the value for the staging indicator is set to 5 – EWM Staging.

Inclusion of By-Products in Production Orders and Process Orders

This business function enhances the Generate Expected Goods Receipt Documents in SAP EWM report (/SPE/INB_EGR_CREATE). The enhancement specifies that by-products in production orders and process orders are to be considered when the information required to create an expected goods receipt is collected in SAP ERP.

By-products must always be considered together with the main products in the production order or process order. It is not possible to consider by-products on their own.
