Good issue a material partially!!

Hi Experts,

I know it is weird, but we need good issue a material with quantity EA partially!

the problem is that we have some materials which buy them as a package. We don't have BOM for them and also we don't have net price for components.

Just in some cases which is rare, we need to do GI one of the components and then do GR for substitution.

in these cases we create material and then create PO and post Gr. But for GI I don't know what to do.

Especially from FI view its important for us to reduce thea stock value when GI the component.

    Dear all,

    I need to clarify the issue more.  The process has two main steps:

    1. In actual we buy a material which consist of several thousands of materials, but in SAP we define it as a material number without BOM and buy it as a whole.

    2. Sometimes in actual we have to use one of these components for in-house  consumption. (we don't have enough time to buy it separately and also we have no idea which component may be needed in the future). Again in actual we will buy this component and will substitute it after a while, but we do nothing in SAP for this step.

    Sorry about confusion.

    • with your initial approach  you will as well not know how much value you have borrowed as you do not know how much value this part exactly has. you assume a certain percentage of the whole, but does this really match with the value of a single part? I doubt.

      I actually think that this is not relevant at all for the process, where do you want to post this value to?

      If you borrow a wheel from a car, then the car is not moving, while you evaluate the borrowed wheel with 100 Euros, you actually disabled the usage of a car for 50000 Euros. So who is going to take the 49900 Euros until the part is implemented back?

    Hi,

       It seems your UOM in the material master has to be corrected. You may create the material with base UOM as the smallest unit (EA) and then maintain "Pack" as alternate UOM with conversion factor in the material master. Maintain Pack as the order UOM in purchasing view.

    Hi,

    You can maintain Base Unit of Measure as PAC in Basic data-1 view and the Unit of issue as EA in Plant data/stor.1 view  for your material in t.code:MM02/MM01.

    You can order and receive material with Unit of Measure  PAC and issue material with Unit of Measure  EA

    Hi,

    Your question has got two points .

    1. To issue goods partially : Maintain the alternative units in the material master under Units with proper conversions and issue them with the partial quantities .

    2. How to issue : Here some questions arises . Does your pack contains certain individual components ? for which yiu buy and make the GR as a pacage ? after that you want o issue them as componens? if so to whom ---internal for consumption or to customers ?

    while issue the component you need to have the material code . Since the pack you recive is created as a material and this pack can be issued . However how system knows the components ? You have the facility to issue entire pack .

    if the pack to be procured with the coponents , you have to enter them in PO in the components under material data tab . This will only come when you procure through item category L subcontarcting -- You can get pack and coponets gets consumed to pack once you receive .

    Or else instead you mention the parts in the PO item instead the pack and receive and issue .

    Regards,

    Maintain Alternate  unit of  measure in Purchasing view or  plant data /stot loc 1 . At the  time of  GI  , system will pick  automatically  the  Base unit  of measure  , if you need  alternate  change  the  UOM and  post the  entry .

    your scenario is unfortunately not well explained and creates confusion. it is unclear why you talk about components when you buy the material .
    And as well the term "substitution" is not relly explained.

    Whatever alternative unit  you maintain, the stock is managed in the base unit and finally reduced in the base unit. And issuing parts of a good managed in EA is technically possible, SAP allows to enter 3 decimals, even this unit naturally does not have decimals.
