Material Staging for Production
This scenario describes the flow of a goods movement within a warehouse number if several storage locations of a plant are assigned to one warehouse number.
You manage your material stocks in warehouse number 001 in the Warehouse Management system (WMS).
You manage the warehouse stock in the WMS in storage location 0091 of plant 0001.
You manage the warehouse stock for production in production storage location 0092 of plant 0001.
As soon as you stage the goods for production, they are posted to production storage type 100 in production storage location 0092 of plant 0001.
You have assigned storage location 0091 of plant 0001 to warehouse number 001.
You have assigned storage location 0092 of plant 0001 to warehouse number 001.
Storage location 0091 is defined as the standard storage location.
You have defined storage location 0092 in such a way that the system does not transfer this storage location to the transfer requirement.
You have set up production storage area 100 so that the system assigns the stock in this storage type to storage location 0092, and posting changes from storage location to storage location occur cumulatively.
You trigger material staging for production order 10004711.
You have defined production storage area 0092 for the components of the production order. The storage location of the production supply area is also 0092.
The WMS creates a transfer requirement on the basis of the production order.
The transfer requirement has no reference to storage location 0092.
Based on the transfer requirement, you create a transfer order (TO) for staging in production.
The system creates the transfer order for standard storage location 0091 because the transfer requirement contains no storage location assignment.
- You stage the material for production.
- You confirm the TO for material staging.
A positive quant is created for the staged material in storage type 100, storage location 0091.
- The system cumulatively executes a posting change for all of the confirmed putaway TOs from the warehouse into the production storage location.
The system deletes the quant in storage type 100, storage location 0091 and creates a new quant in storage location 0092.
