    If you define a default COntrol key in the work center, then everytime you add a work center for operation in teh routing, it will carry teh control key over there and you wont have to enter manually. The purpose is that some workcenters have similar charachteristics of the operatrions performed on them in terms of confimration, auto GR etc

      The Control key is not madatory where it is used to which business transactions should be executed for the object that belongs to the Task List or Routing and Production order.

      As experts says it is used to reduce the manual work effort.
