I have a problem with a component missing within a TO. In the Transfer Requirement is present and it is processed. It shows me that this component has been confirmed on the TO number 1,but when I display that TO it is missing. Also,the PP-WM staging material has been produced but it doesn't appear on the TO and also on my picking list when I print the TO in LT31.

What can the problem be?

The importance of ''Complete Material Staging'' Indicator is below

->Indicator which defines that only complete transfer requirements are created. Complete transfer requirements refer to operations, that is if it is not possible to create a transfer requirement for at least one component of the operation, no transfer requirement is created at all.

I request you to go through SAP PP WM FAQ.

560638 - FAQ on the WM-PP interface

Also in my first reply, I accentuated that Quantity reduction process happens in WM, system looks at the destination storage bin stock of production storage type before creating a TO.

Also check the KBA, it will answer all your queries.1933100 - No TO created for TR generated from material staging for a production order

hello Andrea,

Please check the PP WM interface, complete material staging indicator is ticked or not? LE-WM-Interface

Also check if Automatic quantity reduction indicator is ticked for production storage type or not in customizing

Interfaces Next navigation step Define Production Next navigation step Define Control Data Next navigation step Warehouse Management view Next navigation step Storage type.

Automatic quantity reduction takes place during transfer order creation for pick parts placed in Fixed storage bin

The system checks whether the required material is available in the production storage bin or not. The system conducts stock calculation considering the stock of the component present in production storage bin which is not reserved for other production orders.The system subtracts the TR QTY of component available in the production fixed bin.If there is considerable amount of available stock of the component in the production fixed bin, the system sets the relevant transfer order to completed, and no TO is created.

Best regards

Thank you for your answer and it seems the material staging isn't ticked. But I was wondering if this wasn't marked how come all the other materials are present in the TO and only one is missing? This is the first time I noticed that one component is missing from TO..
