Difference between Production Supply Area and a Storage Location

Hello Experts,

Basic question but wanted to get more clarity on the concept as i never worked on the PSA

Can someone tell me the exact difference between PSA and a SL. I understand PSA is a Kanban, WM and SL is an IM concept. Can a work center have a storage location assigned or just a PSA? Can a GI be done from PSA or just from a storage location.

    The production supply area is a master data used by WM, while the storage location is used by MM-IM.

    Check this link for details:

    Production Supply Area - Warehouse Management System (WMS) - SAP Library

    The goods issue is done with reference to the storage location

    It is possible to assigne a storage location to a production supply area and assign the production supply area to the work center.
