Auto TO Creation from a bin

I have  a unique requirement where i need to have SAP automatically create a transfer order as soon as someone confirms the stock to it.

For example, consider the following situation

Lets assume there are 500 PCE of Material A is in Bin A on production floor

After using it, we have 300 PCE as left over quantity.

On the route back to warehouse, it is put in a intermediate return bin Bin B for another driver to come and take to warehouse.

My requirement is for system to create automatic TO back to warehouse based on my putaway strategy on material master.

Today, our drivers come in and scan the pallet and create a TO for that SU ( this is custom).

I was wondering if there is any way to create a TO to put it back to warehouse through config and i would like avoid custom development if possible.

    Could you please elaborate "as soon as someone confirms the stock to it." where is this confirmation happens, if this is related to confirmation about the consumption then to trigger this automatic transfer order for leftover quantity you need to write the custom code there is no standard solution available

    As per standard SAP the flow is, you transfer the stock to production line side(Production storage location)  from the warehouse storage location upon confirmation of transfer order Storage location to Storage location transfer takes place(Posting Change Notice) . After consumption if you want to return the stock to warehouse,  system will create transfer order from line side bin to warehouse bin(selection of warehouse bin can be based on material master data) and subsequently the PCN should get created to flip to storage location back to warehouse storage location.

      Thanks for your response. We have our production floor supply areas and warehouse racks under same storage location so there would not be any posting changes or anything as per your suggestion.

      Its very simple actually. For example, if i put stock some stock in a bin, i want a to created immediately to put it away based on the putaway search strategy from putaway indicator to make sure the bin is always empty.
