How do you post production output with simple locations?

Using production order and warehouse functionality together on simple location not requiring shipments or receipts, it’s actually possible to post output directly on the production order without using an inventory put away.

This is what happens in the video

In this scenario, if I look at this production order, I haven’t posted any output yet so if I’m looking at the item ledger entries, we have no entries with outputs and I can just enter my production journal directly from here.

Entering the output quantity and of course the quantity on all other lines that I want to post on, maybe I’m not posting the two items here, but just a lot of capacities and times, and when I post this journal now and I post the output, it would actually have created the item ledger entries directly, so if I look at my item ledger entries now, I have an output line with the quantity of 3.

And if I’m looking at my warehouse entries, it would also have created, of course, a warehouse entry with a positive adjustment on the default bin code for production on this work center or from the location set up.

And now, I’m not using inventory put away to make this as a put away because I already posted it so if I’m moving it now, I will just create an internal movement or move it directly in a journal.
