How to report/map non-stock items into a virtual storage location statistically


Hi Experts,

I seek your advice on one scenario explained here as follows:

I have a material requirement of material "A" for my project (requester is not bothered about whether its stockable or non-stockable). For stockable items I am not worried because it is going to inventory first (with WBS). For non-stock items, it should go for consumption directly, but we have some concerns here .As, Warehouse and Project both want a virtual storage location against which they want to track their 'non stockable' materials.

(It looks conflicting to record non stock items against a SL)

But, projects don't have separate area/location to put those non stock items. So they want warehouse to take custody of bulk quantities of non stock items (during GRN) and issue it to project (say in hundreds) as and when required. So, for it there is a need of tracking these materials against a 'virtual' SL.

Can you please suggest how I can map this scenario in system and which account assignment category should be used.

Please feel free to ask if any point is not clear to you.

Thanks & Regards
