Scarping Material with Original Moving Average Price.

We like to scrap the material which we received from a Vendor..

Scenario is suppose you receive 100 from vendor and 5 are bad..We like to scrap these 5 material but we like to reduce the inventory at the same moving average price at which price they were received from vendor .Another thing is that possible to update the original PO history with the scrap document so we have the link with the original PO ?

    You have to open the field for external amount and need to enter this original amount when you scrap, this will result in a moving average price change for the remaining material, and is not liked by auditors either. Usually the warehouse people who perform the scrapping do not know what the price was and have often not even the authorization to obtain this info.

    You actually scrap neutral warehouse stock, hence you can't have that in your purchase order history.

    • Hello MB0A is an absolute tranasation,

      the option is to do any good movement with PO reference which is available in MIGO as well. i believe system will give you error message when you go in next screen after selecting PO.

      i haven't tested it,, ..but .if you have tested then please send some screenshots of it.

      second point is if you use the 501/502 movement then system wont update any PO history as it wont update the table EKBE (history table).

      thanks

    Hello ,

    you need to activate the External amount field in the movement type as suggested by Jürgen , you need to enter the total amount of stock while doing scrapping so that it will update the price you want.

    but this will also affect your total stock MAP.

    The scrapping movement wont be updated in the history as you actually cant scrap material with reference to PO. but if you show the material as return to vendor then that entry will be considered in the history.

    Entering Material for Scrapping - Inventory Management and Physical Inventory (MM-IM) - SAP Library

    you can try somehting like this

    1) while scrapping use any available text field to enter PO number(you can make it mandatory for MT)

    2) create a report based on above data to track the scrap against POs.

    only issue in this i see is you need to enter individual po scrap and cant make a collective scrap for same material

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You receive 100 from vendor  where 95 are good and 5 are bad  but why you want to Scarp 5 material ?

    Who will own the cost of 5 material?

    If 5 materials are bad, better do Return delivery in t.code MIGO to your vendor and now cross check PO history!

    Regards

    Hi

    If material is related to Quality Check then you can do the same by QA32 at the time of UD you can provide 95 as unrestricted and 5 as scrap.
