Material staging with release order parts does not use the production order as a reference. You use material staging with release order parts primarily for repetitive manufacturing, since repetitive manufacturing generally does not work with reference to an order.


The system calculates the missing quantity by comparing the quantity already available and the quantity already initiated by the material staging list with the requirements, which fall within the selected period.


Material staging of release order parts is integrated in the Structure linkpull list of the application component Repetitive Manufacturing (PP-REM).


Using the material staging list, you can only stage release order parts for requirements, whose future issue storage location is already defined in requirements planning. For more information, see Structure linkMaterial Staging.


The system groups together the individual requirements of a specific production supply area and compares this with the quantity that is already available (stock available in production and replenishments that have already been initiated).

You can stage release order parts via the material staging list. The system uses the actual BOM explosion to calculate the dependent requirements. The system compares the actual available stock in production with the requirements that are transmitted via the selection and determines the staging quantity. The system does not execute any dynamic availability checks for release order parts.

In the material staging list, the system checks the stock of the components at storage location level (Inventory Management view).

You can display a detailed view of the stock/requirements situation of the components in the WM-managed warehouse (Warehouse Management view) from the material staging list. The following information is included in this display:


Based on the stock information, you Structure linktrigger staging of the release order parts from the material staging list, and decide yourself when the staging should take place and if you want to use the quantity proposed by the system.

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text

Process all of the requirements that exist for one component in the production supply area simultaneously, in order to determine the shortfall quantity.


You request a material for a certain production line and a production period up until November 10th. The dependent requirements for this selection equal a total requirement of 100 pieces of component B. The system does not find any stock of this component in the production supply area. The system therefore creates a transfer requirement for material staging of 100 pieces of component B.

If you trigger a second material requirement for the production period from November 11th-20th, the system calculates an additional total requirement of 50 pieces of component B from the dependent requirements. However, there is already a TR of 100 pieces for this component, so the system does not create a second TR. This selection leads to incorrect results.

If you leave the beginning of the production period open for the second material request, the system selects all of the requirements up until November 20th. The total requirement is then 50 pieces of component B. There is already a TR for 100 pieces and the system creates a new TR of 50 pieces of component B. The result is correct.
