Consumables is a material (you can say consumable is a material type attribute). You can have quantity and value updating for these materials.

Ex: you have a material say diesel. You define this material as consumable. You create a material type as consumables with price control and you procure it as a stock material and store it. When ever you require it you issue it for consumption (to process/ department (cost centre)) etc..

Consumebles are materials ( it is a material type) which can used for various activities in your process. It will have quantity and value updation in plants. You can stock these materials in stores
