Customer Stock valuated at plant

We have a scenario in which stock needs to be posted against a customer and it should get reserved for that customer. There will not be any sales order while posting the GR to customer. Once customer orders ATP will have to check from this reserved stock against the customer and should allocate the material accordingly.

I would like to know what is the best way to achieve this ?

    there is no allocation to a customer, you need a customer order in your system.

    and if you create a reservation manually then stock is not available for your next order .

    Is this scenario is for One customer or there are multiple customer like that ?

    If you want to use special stock functionality then you need sales order for it. But If this is only one customer, I would recommend create separate storage location for that. You have to enhance PO item data to identify that material you are ordering is relevant to customer you are taking about.

    There can more approaches to deal with this scenario but you need to provide more info.

    • Question - how manufacturer will be linked to customer ? are you creating a Ztable for that mapping ?

      If you can not use Sales order, there can be another work around

      if you material+manufacturer gives you customer #, you can create a Sales Quotation in background and use MB1B with movement type 412+E with Quotation # instead of sales order #... above steps can happen with little complex development

      Then creation of sales order should be with the quotation --then PGI, Billing can follow the normal process. I think but you have explore more make this work.
