EWM consumption posting 261: can we influence the HU which is used?

Dear community,

We have advanced production integration, the S/4 creates a goods movement 261 for the consumption.

The PSA is EWM-managed and there are multiple HUs with product/batch usable for the consumption.

During the comsumption posting, the system uses stock on one of these HUs according to batch and product.

How does the determination work, which of the HUs is used?

What would be the best way to assign a specific HU for the process?

Thank you in advance for your answers.

    • Thank you very much for sharing the documents which describe the process.

      Supplying the PSA with selected HU's for consumption is working fine and of course, you can influence the selection, which HU's are transported to the PSA. But the problem is, that there are multiple HU's present on the PSA and we would like to select one particular HU from those for the consumption.

      This requirement is not answered by the documents. I guess, it means, there is no standard solution for it.
