German term or phrase:Rohstoff
Die mengen- sowie wertmäßige Bestandsführung erfolgt im SAP.
Nach der Wareneingangsbuchung ist die Lieferung zunächst als Qualitätsprüfbestand lagergeführt und wird erst nach erfolgreicher Prüfung durch die QTEC-Abteilung in den frei verwendbaren Bestand umgebucht.
Explanation: It depends very much on the nature of the materials used in the production process. I would wager, though, that this particular operation uses few raw materials (wood, iron ore, crude oil).
In my experience with industrial operations (metalworking, auto supplies), primary materials is the counterpart to finished (or semi-finished) products (i.e. goods entering and leaving the operation).
Incidentally: over 20,000 Google hits for "raw materials" and SAP - mostly because the lumbering industry deals in a raw material (but we all knew that, didn't we?)!
