Material Staging - Auto to Manual

Hello All

We currently use LP12 to stage materials to a Production Supply Area (PSA) by grouping released production order quantities.

Now we want to activate manual staging from within a production order. Therefore, staging will now be processed by individual production order rather then a group of them.

My question is, which material staging indicator should I use?

Current control cycles are set to 3 - Release Order Part

Should I now change these to 4 - Manual staging? or 1 - Pick Part?

And should I now change from LP12 to LP10 as I will be picking for individual production orders?

Thanks in advance

Hi Darren,

If you wish to pick the parts for each order separately, then use staging indicator 1 and use LP10.

If there are some components needed very frequently and can be picked by the production guys by themselves, then you can activate manual staging with indicator 4 for these select few items. The way it works is warehouse supply in bulk for the manually staged materials and the production consumes the required quantity for the order.
