    PSK,

    The material staging indicator is used to determine the dependency of the material for WM usage and also determine how to use.

    '0' -- Not relevant to WM. These types of materials are not relevant for WM.

    Ex: when use the materials which are not managed at Warehouse level, just in MM-IM.

    '1' -- Pick parts- The production order quantity required at the shop floor is picked up using this method. Picking can be via immediate creation of TR after staging or through creation of delivery (with some additiona IMG setting w.r.t delievry).

    Ex: This indicator should be used for the materials which are manged in WM, and there is no pallet requirements - means you can pick any qty without any restrictions.

    '2': Crate or KANBAN parts: These materials are always removed from warehouse in full cases. Whenever a case of needed parts is emptied in production then these can be ordered.

    Ex: This indicator should be used for the materials which are manged in WM, and the materials that are handled by a pallet/crate. Few material you cannot pick partial qunatities -- for example one cement bag..

    '3' -- Release order parts: Release order parts are scheduled individually and replenishment is carried out manually based on production orders. -- Not used much....

    '4' --Manual staging: Here the materials are staged manually i.e. movement of components to production storage is carried out using manual transfer orders. When you post the goods issue, posting are made to destination storage bins through control cycles. -- self explanatory.

    Hope this info is helpful 😊

    Thanks,

    Satya
