When you run this batch job, the program calculates a proposal for the consumption that has taken place during production. This information appears as lines in the Consumption Journal window, and you can edit it.
If you have placed a check mark in the Require Pick field on the location card to indicate that the location requires pick processing, then you do not need to use this batch job as the program handles consumption in a different way.
You can define what is included in the batch job by setting filters. You can set additional fields on the Production Order and Prod. Order Component tabs by clicking the Field field, then clicking the AssistButton that appears to the right. You can also determine how the batch job is run by filling in fields on the Options tab. Fill in the fields as follows:

Item No.: Enter the number of an item (or a range of item numbers) for which you want the program to calculate consumption.
Posting Date: Here you can enter the posting date that you want the program to use in the Consumption Journal window.
Calculation Based on: Here you can select whether you want the program to base the calculation on the actual output (the quantity of finished goods that you have reported) or the expected output (the quantity of finished goods that you expect to produce). The program selects the Expected Output field as a default, but you can change it.
Picking Location: In this field, you can select the location from where you want the program to pick the items.
