Material Transfer (B/w Sloc)

Hello gurus,

My client is producing 2 finished products in which 70 percent of Halb and Roh material are same. There are 2 work centers. Work centers are not fixed for both products and so both products can be manufactured on either of the workcenters. There are 2 storage locations which are fixed/assigned for both work centers. These SLocations contain all the Halb and ROH material for their respected finished product being produced on that particular workcenter at that particular time.

1- How will the 70 percent of the same material be distinguished in both the slocs, i.e for which finished product is this HALB or ROH material assigned/belong to?

2- As both finshed products can be manufactured on both WC, what will happen to HALB and ROH when both the products are being produced on both the WCs at the same time. How will the user or the shop floor controller know which material belongs to what finished product in what SLoc and needs to proceed to which Workcenter?

I've thought of mb1b using movement type 311 to transfer sloc wise but the question remains same how will the user know which material to transfer or not?

    The best way to address this scenario is creating a production supply area for your storage location and assigning it to your work center. That way, components assigned to an operation of this work center, will refer to this specific storage location.

    After that, you can use transaction MF60 to list the missing components on this storage location and post the transference.

    Best regards
