Synchronous Goods Receipt for Kanban: Kanban for in-house production strategies ‘working with production orders’ in S/4 HANA 2020 Embedded EWM
Synchronous Goods Receipt for Kanban:-
With this feature, synchronous goods receipt with the Kanban replenishment strategy In-House can be posted with Production using the control type ”Working with Production Orders for goods receipt from discrete manufacturing directly to the bin of the production supply area (PSA).
Diagram from SAP document to understand synchronous goods movement.

In Customizing for Production under
- Set up several options for control of ‘Automatic Warehouse Task Creation” at storage type level or WPT level. Also determination of WPT with synchronous posting without document type and Item type
Thanks for reading through, I would write more stuff on EWM Manufacturing integration on S/4 HANA 2020 Embedded EWM.
