Hello,
During the creation of an outbound delivery from a STO and subsequent delivery split, some of the items aquired decimal units. For example, one item in the STO had 2 CRT and the subsequent split converted it to 37.992 EA (instead of a round 38 EA). Or even an item with 0 CRT was converted to 0.009 EA.
Fearing this could become a recurring situation, what would you recommend as a preventive measure to solve this situation?
Only tomorrow will I be able to enclose scrrenshots, so I'm hoping I was clear enough to start a discussion.
Many thanks
DP
A stock transfer between to plants is a very close relationship, it happens in one SAP system, where both partners work with. It is not like doing business with an external vendor where you cannot really influence many things. But in your own system, why is it needed to order or ship in a different unit than the base unit?
Physical quantities are always posted accurate to 3 decimals in SAP
And for this case " 0 CRT was converted to 0.009 EA" I would really like to see a screen shot, as I do not believe that you can order 0.
You probably just see 0 CRT in MMBE, because decimals are not displayed, or the mathematical conversion does just not have a number different than 0 at the 3rd decimal place.
Managed to replicate a similar situation in DEV for a different material where each CX <=> 12 UN. Created a STO and outbound delivery for 2 CX. I indicated 2 different storage bins for picking, one with decimals (0,004 UN) and another storage bin with round numbers (decimal 1st).
So it took 0.004 UN from the first storage bin and 23,996 UN from the 2nd. Besides generating a delivery split with decimals it ruined the stock of the storage bin, now with decimals.
You are most likely right, they need to perform inventory asap.
The root cause were changes in conversion ratios throughout time I believe.
Thanks Jürgen, you've been most helpful!
