Linking existing PM Eqpt to new MM Material


Hi PM Experts,

Hope you can help me here.

Until now we used Equipment Masters. They were not linked to any MM Material Masters.

Now we have a requirement of transferring them from one plant to another plant, using Stock Transport Order and Delivery.

Therefore we need to have them set up as Material Masters too.

We created Material Masters with Serial Number Profile and Serialisation Level to keep Serial Number and Equipment synchronised.

So, if we purchase new Equipment, on Good Receipt of the PO, Material Stock goes up and and new Equipment Master is created with the same Serial Number. We then can stock transport them between plants etc.

Our issue is with all the existing equipments. If we assign them to the Material Master using Construction Type field, they do not show in the stock.

If we try to use Initial Stock Entry [MIGO / 561] for the Material with existing Equipment numbers as Serial Numbers, then SAP gives error that the Serial Number already exists.

Will appreciate any suggestion in this regard.
