Manual staging indicator 4 - control cycle use

Please help me understand what is the use of manual staging indicator 4 in pp-wm control cycles?

if I can manually create transfer order and move the material to the production line, then why do I need to achieve that using manual staging using control cycles? what advantage am i getting by this?

    If the WM-PP interface is active then once you release the production order system creates Transfer requirement with referance to production order, you need to create transfer order with reference to TR and supply the required quantity to production supply area (100)

    In case of manual indicator you can create a Transfer order without any reference to production order, the difference in between other and manual staging is that while other transfer order will have visibility that you transfer the goods against which production order with manual staging you don't have visibility of that

    Please refer the below mentioned Matrix and Standard SAP link to get more detail


    Staging indicator



    Pick list item

    Components that are staged just for the single order based on Bill of Material.


    Crate part

    Components that are needed in production but don’t have to be on the Bill of Material. Typically frequently used materials such as water, nuts/bolts, corrugate, etc


    Release order part

    Components that can be staged across multiple orders based on Bill of Material


    Manual staging

    Replenishment of material without reference to production order


    Not relevant for WM

    • Control cycle tells you exact bin location where you are supposed to transfer the stock in supply area

      Release order part also you transfer against production order but instead of one production order you can club multiple order and transfer
