Material that you stage for a production order in the required quantity in a fixed storage bin in production or in a dynamic production storage bin.
Using pick parts, you ensure material staging from the warehouse to production, based purely on the production order. You stage the quantity of the material requested in the production order with a direct reference to the production order. You can stage the material in a fixed storage bin in production or in adynamic storage bin "production order".
For this type of material staging, you can create transfer requirements (TRs) in two different ways:
These transfer requirements are always based on the quantity required in the production order and the production deadlines.
Set the indicator WM Request accordingly in the Production Control Profile in the Customizing for Warehouse Management under Interfaces ® Define Production ®
In both PP and the WMS, you can create transfer requirements for pick parts that are needed in various quantities and at different times for a specific production order. For more information, refer to
The requirement tracking number for pick parts is the production order number. If the production order number consists of more than 10 digits, the system shortens the requirement number right to left.
Confirmation of Batches
For pick parts, you can confirm batches, issued by the WMS for a production order, to the production order:
The system does not support confirmation of batches for
Material Staging via Deliveries
As an alternative to transfer requirements, you can also use deliveries to execute the material staging of pick parts. To do this, set the indicator GI via Delivery in the Customizing for Warehouse Management under Interfaces® Define Production ® Define Control Data in the production control profile.
You must enter the Delivery Type and the Goods Recipient of the delivery in Customizing. We recommend using delivery type WMPP in the standard system.
You must enter the Sales View in the material master and enter the General Item Category Group (for example WMPP) in the view Basic Data 1.
When you confirm the transfer order, the system sets the status of the delivery to Completely processed, depending on the shipping control at movement type level. The system also posts the consumption of the staged components.
