    You need to define Kanban settings separately.There is no provision of Kanban activation in MB1B.

    Pls. maintain the following settings for Kanban with Replenishment strategy as Stock Transfer.

    Stock transfer from Main Stores to Production Line

    Basic rules and Prerequisites:

    u2022 MRP type must remain as it has been like u201CPDu201D or u201CVBu201D or any active MRP type.

    u2022 Backflush indicator is must. It can be defined in the routing or in the material master itself. If Backflush indicator is set in the material master, then the material will be backflushed through out the plant (Material issue not required against production order). However if you want the material to be backflushed only when it is used for certain products, then Backflush indicator should be set in the routing ( in the component allocation against operations).

    u2022 Confirmation should be done for each operation in the production order either individually (CO11n) or collectively (CO15). Confirmation posts goods issue of components (relevant to confirmed operation/s) to production order

    u2022 Maintain KN01 storage location in the field in Production Storage Location of MRP2 view in the material master. Back flushing will take place from this location. Field - Storage location for external procurement (EP) should be MN01 (Main Stores) in the material master.

    u2022 KN01 - Kanban Storage Location stock is excluded from MRP.

    Process steps:

    1. Create supply area for Kanban storage location (KN01). TC: PK05

    2. Extend the material to Kanban storage location. TC: MMSC

    3. Make the necessary changes in the material master as explained above.

    4. Create Kanban control cycle. TC:PKMC

    5. Print the barcode. TC:PK17

    6. Set the kanban status to EMPTY by scanning the barcode. TC: PKBC. A material reservation will be created for stock transfer from main stores to KN01.

    7. View the demand source view. TC: PK13n

    8. Once the Main stores sends the material to shop floor scan the barcode to FULL. TC: PKBC (At the background stock transfer with 311 movement will happen).

    In addition to above you also need to define Replenishment strategies for Stock transfer in :

    SPRO-> Production->Kanban->Replenishment Strategies->Replenishment Strategies for Stock Transfer

    Pls. maintain above settings which will enable you stock transfer through the Kanban with 311 Movement.

    Hope this helps.

    Revert if any doubt.

    Award points if useful.
