You manufacture a product integrated with Enhanced Warehouse Management (EWM) procedure.
You expect the staging of the component to be triggered automatically upon the order release.
However, after releasing the order, the staging request is not triggered and there is no new entry in app Process Posting Change Item.
You have to trigger the staging manually in the order by going through "More/Functions/WM Material Staging/Execute".
Reproducing the Issue
1. Create and release a production order, then save.
2. Check in the app Change Production Order: Navigate through "More/Functions/WM Material Staging/Simulate", find that the "Already Requested" field of the EWM-managed component remains 0.
3. Check in the app Process Posting Change Item: No new entry generated for the released order.
Improper configuration for the corresponding Production Scheduling Profile of the production order.
Since the "Posting Change Item" is a kind of "Delivery", if you want to trigger automatic EWM staging, you have to set the "WM Request" field of the Production Scheduling Profile as "2 - Transfer Reqmt, Transfer Order, and Delivery Upon Release".
This configuration can be done by SSCUI 102508 "Define Production Scheduling Profile for Discrete Manufacturing".
