2 step Stock Transfer between 2 plants



Our Company needs to handle stock transfer between 2 plants (the onshore plant in Europe while the offshore plant is in International water zone, there is a customs Control in between). The onshore plant serves as purchasing plant for the offshore plant. Material will be transfered to the offshore from the onshore when it required

Our process is:

1. A reservation will be triggered when Work Order is created from PM.

2. MRP run for both plants

3. Based on the reservations created, Stock Transfer should be created for the offshore plant and PR will be created for the onshore plant if there is stock shortage

2 step stock transfer between 2 plants will be used since it is not allowed to have stock posted directly to the offshore plant if they are not yet arrived physically, otherwise it may have problem with customs.

There are 2 ways to do stock transfer between plant

1. STO

2. Transfer Posting

But since 2-steps stock transfer cannot be planned by using reservation according to the SAP instruction, do you have any suggestions on how stock transfer can be triggered based on Reservation during the MRP run?

Thank you!
