Material stored in crates or other standard containers, which you request from the WM-managed warehouse for production, independent of existing production orders.


In the standard system, you always request crate parts manually. If you determine in production that a container or a certain production storage bin for a crate part is almost empty, you request this crate part. You have defined the staging quantity for crate parts in the corresponding control cycle.

Staging crate parts is therefore not linked to specific production orders and production quantities. The staging of crate parts can cover several production orders.

To trigger material staging for a crate part, choose in the SAP menu:

Trigger staging

Menu path

from the application component Production Planning

Logistics ® Production ® Production Control ® Goods Movement ® WM Material Staging ® For Crate Part

from the application component Warehouse Management

Logistics ® Logistics Execution ® Outbound Process ® Goods Issue for Other Transactions ® Prepare Production Supply ® For Crate Part

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text

For crate parts, you cannot define dynamic storage bin coordinates as requirement tracking numbers in the transfer requirement for material staging. In this case, the production supply area serves as the requirement tracking number.
