How to trigger the PSA post consumption automatically in EWM?

Hi EWM experts,

I am now configuring the production integration with decentralized EWM 9.6 version

Firstly, one part of the standard process is after schduling stage products and confirm WT in RF environment, the materials are moved to Product Supply Area immidiately(PSA) after which we can do the consumption based on the PMR quantities.

So I wonder is it possible to configure the system with PSA so that the materials can be trigered to post consumption automatically hardly before the materials arrive at PSA?

As far as I know, the PPF can realize some posting functions for posting goods receipt from production, which I had successfully called when I received goods on RF environment after consumption. But I do find the" posting consumption for products profile" in the SPRO, whearas I am not quite know to which documents types it post, because we don't create outbound delivery when we do post consumption, maybe post consumption according to PMR documents?

Does anyone have ideas of this scenario?

    well, isn't it clear from the field documentation?

    "The system only evaluates the field if you use the outbound delivery process for production supply deliveries". Means on this page the scenarios P3, P313, R3, R313, K3, K313 (two storage locations where one is EWM managed, the other is either only IM managed or has it's own warehouse number).

    So, do you use one of these scenarios?

    And it is EWM. NOT eWM - Duh!
    And if your question includes the word "transfer order" - do NOT tag the question with Extended Warehouse Management!

    • Hi Juergen,

      Thank you for your helpful advice!

      As you said, we actually use two PSA storage locationd managed by IM and EWM individualy, mapping from ERP to EWM. But the orginization model we use based on PMR rather delivery once we released production order and trigers staging at EWM. So I assume system is not able to automatically post consumption when goods arrived at PSA.
