Return / Scrap of Materials back to ERP as Decimals Fails

Hello all,

Looking to see if there is a configuration problem or if this is a bug in where a ticket needs to be opened.

I am trying to return or scrap inventory id's back to ERP as decimal number and the request source XML contains a zero value instead of the correct decimal amount.

Message Name: maintainInventoryRequest

Tag: "quantity" is zero instead of the decimal amount

0.9999 = 0

1.9999 = 1

Example:

Order contains a BOM with Material that can consume in decimal amounts Unit of Measure in Pounds can be consumed by the quarter, half, etc.

Inventory of the material: Quantity = 100, Order consumes 4.5, remaining quantity = 95.5

Message sent to ERP consumes correctly the decimal amount (as expected).

Operator on the shop floor spills 0.5 pounds

Open Maintain Floor Stock activity:

Retrieve Inventory ID

Reduce quantity from 95.5 to 95

Reason Code: SCR-SCRAP

Press Save

Inventory within SAP ME is updated correctly

Message sent to ERP (maintainInventoryRequest) through the MEINT contains the quantity = 0

Similar case with the Reason Code: RTN-RETURN_TO_INVENTORY

Any help or feedback would be appreciated,

Mike

    Hi Mike,

    If Qty Restriction of the material = Any Number but you still observe such behavior, then it looks like a bug or design gap.
