control quantity

Product Cost Controlling (CO-PC)

Quantity that is compared with the target quantity in variance calculation.

Warehouse Management (MM-WM)

Maximum quantity of a particular material that may be picked from a given storage type.

This limiting value allows you to carry out stock removals based on quantity for storage types (such as picking areas) in which small quantities are processed and other storage types (such as reserve or bulk storage) in which large quantities are stored.

If the requested quantity exceeds the control quantity, the WM system picks from the storage type with large quantities.

The control quantity is defined in the WM view of the material master record at the storage type level.
