Return movement types - 651 and 657

I am trying to understand a difference between 651 and 657. I have seen lot of post in scn and an interesting snippet caught my eye,

"You could change the movement type to 657 (Returns

to Blocked Stock) which would be valuated. However, this would need to be

thought throuh in regard to - returns stock identification, warehouse

management, etc."

I understand 657 movement would result in valuated stock.. but what would be the disadvantage of 657 movement type when compared to 651. Could anyone please elaborate why one should not choose 657 (when we want return to be valuated)?

    Pretty much depends on how you run business.

    Just imagine you create a return order when the customer calls you that he want send something back to you.

    You then create the delivery to pick up the material.

    You post the receipt with 651 when the material is on the truck, and you finally do a 453 or similar when it arrives at your site.

    or you organize your work to do the 45* movement after you processed the credit note.

    That is something that you have to find out in the design phase and then you do the customizing accordingly
