Production Integration Process

Hi EWM Gurus,

I am working on S/4HANA 1809 system. We have two ewm relevant storage locations within same warehouse, one is AF01 (where raw material is kept) and other one is PD01 (production location where PSA is located). In such, scenario system create PMR or Posting change document ( through MF60) ?

    Hi Siva.

    Sysem creates a PMR and if you want system can carry out a posting change to transfer the stock.

    If you are using EWM BP, you already know the concept of availability group 001 and 002.

    The idea is the same but now the availability group's going to be 003 Stock in Production.

    If you look at the setting from of storage type 1000, which can be user for production supply, you will see that the availability group 003 is settled.

    You just need to maintain the mapping of warehouse and availability group to your plant and storage location.

    So, after you complete the wareohuse activities, the system will carry out a goods movement (mov. type 411) transfering the goods from storage location AF01 to the one defined in the mapping.

    I hope it help you.

    All the best.

    • Hi Livio,

      Thanks for your prompt reply. I have done the similar setting which you have mentioned above. However, let me rephrase my question, I have 3 S.LOCS (RD01, AF01, & PD01). They are receiving location, available stock location and Production Location respectively (and all of them are EWM locations). Now, PSA is located in PD01 location. Now, when I create Production order, I am expecting my stock should go from AF01 to PD01.

      Now, my question is in such scenario system should create PMR or Posting Change document (through MF60 transaction) ? As per my understanding, system should create posting change document as stock is moving from one EWM location to other EWM location.

      If system will create PMR then how staging will be done because here we have stock moving from one SLOC (AF01) to another SLOC (PD01) ?

      Or system will always create PMR in case of S/4HANA system and then we have to replenish the stock to PSA ?

    Hello Siva,

    1) If you use Delivery based production model, moving stock from EWM managed sloc to another, an outbound delivery is created in ERP from MF60 which will be replicated as posting change document in decentral or in S4H embedded versions. In control cycle using material staging indicator with source and destination sloc can be mentioned.This allows you to have transfer posting 411 in ERP and corresponding stock type change from F2(Warehouse ) to PSA(P2).

    2) For advance production integration, staging between 2 different EWM managed sloc transfer happens is done through PMRS. In this case, in Control cycle you cannot mention 2 different sloc as it triggers an error. Here you just need to mention the source and destination Sloc as same.

    So the transfer posting of stock from 2 different sloc happens via EWM availability group. The source storage type and destination storage type should have different Availability group, example 002—->003, this triggers a stock movement with transfer posting in ERP. So, if you go by this model, system creates PMRs with stock type change from F2 to P2.

    However, you will have some challenges in consumption of PMR item from P2 stock type from PSA. For that you need to have Stock determination in your EWM system for consumption happening from P2 stock types.

    • Hi Shailesh,

      Really helpful, your details have enlightened me to a greater extent. However, how to decide whether delivery based integration or Advanced Production Integration is better for my business ?

      Also, as you mentioned "So, if you go by this model, system creates PMRs with stock type change from F2 to P2" however for me it is creating PMR with only stock type and that is P2. Even I also expect, it should create PMR with stock types F2 to P2. And then later on I can move stock from source bin (storage type with availability group 002) to PSA Bin (Storage type with availability 003), which in turn will do posting change. So, what could be the potential cause of not having PMR with two stock types ?

      Also, as you said that in case of Advanced Production Integration where source & destination storage locations are EWM relevant then system creates PMR with stock type F2 to P2, but what if I have destination storage locations as non EWM in case of API then what document should be created ?

      Regards,

    Hello Siva,

    Questions: how to decide whether delivery based integration or Advanced Production Integration is better for my business ?

    Answer: I cannot tell which is better for your business because I dont know about your production model. Both model have advantages and disadvantages.

    This link can help you to analyze.

    Question: Also, as you mentioned "So, if you go by this model, system creates PMRs with stock type change from F2 to P2" however for me it is creating PMR with only stock type and that is P2. Even I also expect, it should create PMR with stock types F2 to P2. And then later on I can move stock from source bin (storage type with availability group 002) to PSA Bin (Storage type with availability 003), which in turn will do posting change. So, what could be the potential cause of not having PMR with two stock types.

    Answer: System creates PMR with stock type F2not P2. in /SCWM/PMR .

    When you confirm WT, then stock moves from Source storage type to PSA by change in availability group 002--->003 and stock type of PSA is now P2. So, your PSA stock is now P2.

    Question: Also, as you said that in case of Advanced Production Integration where source & destination storage locations are EWM relevant then system creates PMR with stock type F2 to P2, but what if I have destination storage locations as non EWM in case of API then what document should be created ?

    Answer: I am not sure about Advanced Production Integration working with Non EWM PSA sloc. But I tested for delivery based for non EWM PSA sloc. In this case, MF60 creates an outbound delivery and Outbound delivery(OPS) is replicated in EWM ( Not posting change TPS).
