SAP Best Practices for Implementation (Distinct Scenarios)

Hi SAP Gurus,

We're currently in the process of designing the system to meet certain customer requirements; which are as follows:

1. Company A whose exclusive line of business is tolling (i.e. no-owned inventory; only produces FG from customer provided RM);

2. Company B, who is both a manufacturer and toller.

Note that we have already standard solutions in mind; although to simplify the processes, the assumption is that all toll customers (scenario 1) and the manufacturer and toll customer (scenario 2) will use the same material codes and other master data. I would just like to get your ideas to check and balance our proposed design.

Appreciate all of your responses.

Regards,

Rodel Celo

    I don' t really see any design in your text.

      Thank you Jurgen for your response.

      The requirement is that the toller should be able to keep track of how much of his business is transacted for local and for foreign customers. He provides services (tolls) for local customers while manufactures goods for export.

      The said requirement assumes that we can keep track of the raw materials provided to the toller (from local customers) and separate it from his own stock (used in manufacturing). The current setup for the client is that they used suffixes to indicate which item is for local (-L) or export (-E). I can monitor from customer side the stocks provided to subcontractor through MBLB or ME2O. is there such a report that can be generated from the toll provider side to separate stocks for internal use from toll customer?

      Is there a way in standard SAP to monitor stocks at the toller side to distinguish which part of his stocks are from customer (for tolling) and which are for internal use (production)? since physical separation and identification between the two (-L and -E) on actual shopfloor operation is difficult. Hence, the plan to consolidate every -L and -E material into once code.

      Consideration however is on the impact on the material's valuation as the Raw Materials are MAP and mixing -L (customer) and -E (own stocks) will dilute the actual MAP of the items.

    Essentially, one of the main concerns is how to keep track of inventory between the toller and the toll customer (scenario B) without using any ABAP customization.

      if you want to keep the toll customer ( Scenario B) by using SD - Customer master data mandatory.

      if the data/records is said to be some hundred or thousand or more than higher volumes then using

      ABAP for customization is strongly needed because of using BDC/IDOC. It all purely depends on

      your company concerns.

      Thanks,
