converting manufacturing in warehouse to WM

I'm attempting to configure a facility with a WM storage location already configured for the warehouses operations and storage types, etc...

They have another storage location because its a manufacturing facility within the warehouse. I have to set up the manufacturing Sloc to WM. What is the correct way to use storage location control pertaining to what movement types to reference in the configuration. Also, I am well confused on the scenario that the material manufactured at the facility does not lose its part number after consumption because it is using variant configuration for MTO. What are the supply chain needs to this? Control cycle or just use POU?

    Hello Brad,

    first of all, you should never enable WM (LGNUM) in view V_T320 for storage location(LGORT) already having stock in MM.

    One classic WM-PP scenario does not use real WM within the production (no real whse, no bins) area just a interface storage type (typically "150" for Kanban or "914" for production order/MTO).

    So stock inside production is only managed on MM level and moving stock from warehouse to production can result in a posting change (LGORT (WM) -> LGORT (production) ).

    Stock is consumed out of production by goods issue posting.

    This classic process could look like:

    1) Store stock in whse on LGORT=W001, LGNUM=L01,

    2) create production order with components in whse (use plant+storage location from WM)

    3) Do a WM-PP supply, request components from whse (out of production order)
    (this creates a WM transfer requirement + a transfer order)
    4) pick the requested qty in whse

    5) after TO confirmation, posting change from LGORT=W001 to P001 is created
    (this removes stock out of WM, stock is availible on LGORT=P0001)
    6) create production order confirmation and post goods issue

    Hope this gives you a hint where to look further ...

    Best regards,
