Stock Transfer between Plant to Plant – Enhancement

Dear SAP Guru's,

The requirement from my business is to move the Stock Transfer from Plant to Plant using stock type - QI.

To map this scenario, I believe Custom movement types to be created by copying 303&305.

I would like to know after creating custom movement types which Quantity or value string to be changed in both movement types.

Please guide with your expertise skill.

NOTE: Standard SAP works perfectly fine for Stock Transfer from Plant to Plant using stock type - Unrestricted.

    First consider the following notes on available movement types and business scenarios where they are used:

    2420247 - Goods Movement types

    2689573 - Available business scenarios and their movement types

    Try to build the implementation of your business scenario with SAP provided movement types.

    Quantity and value strings are not to be modified by customers. Although doable it's very risky business and you really need to know what you are doing to venture here. If you make a mistake and get data inconsistencies because of your flawed movement types no one but SAP support will be able to help you out and they will call big $ for the service. Consider yourself warned ;))

    If you really need to do that, you should change quantity string only as unrestricted use stock and quality inspection stock are valued the same way.

    All the settings are in T156* tables. If you know your way around the system, you'll figure out the right tables.

    Check out the quantity strings of the following movement types:

    • 303 -> MA02
    • 305 -> MA03
    • 323 -> MQ07 (storage location to storage location transfer of QA stock)

    Quantity string are defined in T156M table. Now you need to compare the strings and figure out how to define a new quantity string to drive plant to plant transfer of QA stock. One obvious challenge here is that there is no two step transfer of QA stock in standard.

    I played with quantity strings once to define custom movements for material-to-material transfer of QA and block stock; 309 movement transfers only unrestricted use stock. Finally it worked.

    Best regards
