Inter company STO-how to reduce the stock where no physical stock is kept in receiving plant

Dear All,

I am facing one issue. Suppose if there are two plants belongs to two company codes A & B.Plant A is in TN & Plant B is in AP (both belongs to two different states). Plant B is the place where no physical stock is kept, it is a place where JJ form & other documents are given to the vehicle to move it to other state. From there it ll move to end customer.

In plant A stock reduce-- inventory credit


In plant B stock increase=---Inventory debit


Now my problem is in plant B no stock is kept, my client wants to reduce the inventory automatically without any manual entry (since no stock in plant B)

Can i use MB1A to reduce the stock automatically & what would be the actual entry for that. How to offset the other account which is getting debited against inventory?.

    Can you explain if your plant B is not stock. Then where the physical stock is going ?

    As per your statement (as per my understand), your main criteria is you are transferring stock from plant A to plant B, but there will be no stock update for plant B. You don't want to see the stock in plant B. Right ?

    If yes, then there are no option to call MB1A automatically, you have to call it via exit or badi.

    It seems to be a combined scenario of third party and inter company STO scenario, where you want to send the send the stock directly to your customer. Standard SAP doesnt support the third party scenario for a vendor assigned to the plant. The standard design is well explained in the note: 1918552 - Third Party Purchase in Cross Company STO: error 06769

    If you dont want to update the stock in the receiving plant, use a consumption account assignment category (like K) in the intercompany STO, so that the stock will be directly consumed. But one question - how do you map the goods issue to the customer and the outgoing excise invoice? Could you please share the details.
