How to record real time inventory consumption on a process order

I am new to SAP and trying to figure out a way to account for materials being used. Currently, our manufacturing process can sometimes take more than 24-28 hours from start to confirmation. However, I need to find a way to consume the materials without recording a final production amount and labor hours. This is to accurately show how much inventory we have at any given time (without having to manually track all WIP).

Is there a way I can consume inventory (261) on a process order as it is consumed without having to confirm labor and production amount?

You can use transaction CO27 to post the goods issue of components for an order, without posting a confirmation. Just make sure that the backflush flag is not set for this material.
