During Production material gets stored again and again

Dear Experts,

(Process Manufacturing)
Currently my client creates a single Work order(process order) in their legacy ERP. Inside that work order material goes form operation 1 -> to Store 1 -> operation 2 -> store 2 -> operation 3 -> to store 3 and so on till operation 6 from where it gets delivered to Main store. My understanding is that when ever a storage location gets involved during production, process order will break, thus there will be 6 separate process orders. 2nd reason for my 6 process order proposal is that there is no fixed time for how long that material will stay in that particular store before moving to the next operation, thus creating huge variances in std time vs actual time for that operation. Also out of these 6 stores they do GR/GI in 3 of them.
Kindly guide me if my proposal is correct or is there a better solution for this.

You can use a functionality called WIP Batches to have intermediate goods receipts within an order.

Check the SAP Help documentation below:

Caetano I believe you didn't understand the problem. Problem is how is the system going to schedule orders when there's no fixed duration for the store? Plus even if I somehow tell them to make a standard time for the stay of material in a particular Sloc, how am I going to reflect that in the master recipe?
