Cross Company Procurement With Project Stock(Q)

Hi, ALL,

I feel so depressed that we can not using cross companyprocurement to sovle purchasing with project stock(Q).😢

While creating delivery with VL10B or VL10D, the item can not be post issued because SAP can not suport the movement type 643Q.

And our business solution is very painful situation.😔

Please check out the screen shot of the error.

Do you have meet the same problem?

Parimal Kaujalgikar had post the same question Jun 16, 2010.

But no correct answer was replied .

Here is the question description by Parimal.

Dear Gurus,

I am running a cross company scenario through project...

Short brief of org str is as follows -

CC 1 having Plant P1 which is assembly plant

CC 2 having Plant P2 which is compnents plant.

Component plan supplies components to assembly plant for assemblying activity. BOM is maintained at the P1. BOM has an items which will be always procured from CC 2, P2. (Setting is done MM Config)

WBS element is placed at CC 1; plant P1. In this WBS Element, activity is created and BOM item is placed to generate demand.

MRP run on both plants.

CC1, P1 results -

PR is generated for BOM components; these PR are converted to PO. This PO is raised on CC2, P2.

CC2, P2 results -

PR is generated for the subsequest demand from CC1, P1. This PR is converted to PO. Goods receipt is done for this PO. Now the stock position is available at WBS but in plant P2

In entire chain of activities, WBS Element remains same (WBS corresponds to CC1; P1)

In th last step, doing outbound delivery for PO raised in CC1; P1. While doing so system is giving error delivery not supported for movement type 643 Q.

This movement type does not exists in standard SAP set up.

Request you to kindly help me in understanding -

1) How this issue can be solved

2) Wheather I am doing cross company process in correct way through project or is there any other better way to do

Awaiting for your reply.

Thanks and Regards,

Best Regards,

    Hi Alex,

    We have exactly this problem and it works like charm.

    In your scenario, I see a basic problem.

    MRP of Plant1 is send as PO to Plant2,

    Plant2 uses this information and triggers MRP at Plant2 level. This again generates PO to the supplier, gets material at Plant2 and at this point of time material is received only at Plant2 on CC2.

    Now you are planning to do outbound delivery in Plant1 which doesnot have any material for the order.

    The problem is that you are trying to create an OBD from Plant1 while the material is only at Plant2. Obviously it will not work.

    The solution we have is as follows.

    1. MRP of Plant1 is triggered as PR, which is converted into Stock transfer to Plant2 as supplying plant and Plant1 as receiving plant. Plant2 will be the vendor for this STO.

    2. Now Plant2 uses this STO, triggers and MRP, gets a PR uses the PR to create PO, gets materials from suppliers and receives them in Plant2. This completes procurement cycle in Plant2

    3. Now for the STO from Plant2 to Plant1, outbound delivery should be created and GI done. This will ensure that the materials from Plant2 of CC2 will be moved into Plant1 of CC1. Also as this is an intercompany scenario, you may have an invoice from CC2 to CC1 and subsequent payment.

    4. Once the GI is done from Plant2, Plant 1 has to do the Goods receipt in Plant1. This can be done by creation of an inbound delivery followed by MIGO in Plant1. It should be ensured that the inbound delivery process should follow only after the outbound delivery from Plant2 for obvious reasons.

    5. Now the materials are in Plant1 and you can trigger an outbound delviery from Plant1 to the customer.

    This process is working fine now. The WBS element all through the process remains assigned to WBS element linked to sales order of CC1.

    This will involve lot of MM and SD combined.

    Hope this helps. Let me know if it helps.

    Hi there,

    I have an very important issue. I need to transfer project stock from one company to another company but the project stock is not same.

    I activated LOG_MM_SIT

    Sample: company 1000 Plant 1000 Project P1

    Company 2000 Plant 2000 Project P2

    As i understand in standard i can not do that. what is the workaround? Do you have any idea?

    I created PO (NBCR) and delviery is created. but where i should put receiving and issuing WBS.

    I really need to fast answer .

    Thanks in advanced.
