    In a company, goods movements do not only occur in the form of goods receipts and goods issues. Depending on the organization of the company (for example, decentralized storage) and its sales policy, internal stock transfers might also be necessary.

    The stock transfer with delivery is a plant to plant scenario. You are posting a goods issue in plant BP02 and a goods receipt in plant BP01.

    This type of stock transfer can only be carried out from unrestricted-use stock of the issuing plant to unrestricted-use stock of the receiving plant.

    You post the placement into storage at the receiving plant in a second step. Only then is the event completed and the transferred quantity part of unrestricted-use stock.

    <b>Function List</b>

    The following functions are provided to support the J51 building block:

    Creating a Planned Independent Requirement

    Creating a stock transport order in plant BP01

    Generating a delivery in plant BP02

    Picking of the material and posting the goods issue in the delivering plant

    Posting the goods receipt in the receiving plant

    <b>Key Points</b>

    The quantity posted from stock is first of all managed as stock in transit of the receiving plant. Only once the goods receipt has been posted is the quantity posted to the unrestricted-use stock of the receiving plant. This enables the quantity "on the road" to be monitored.

    The transfer posting is valuated at the valuation price of the material in the issuing plant.

    Delivery costs can be entered in the stock transport order.

    Hi VAs,

    Configure Intercompany Stock Transport Order

    Material should exist in both the plants (Delivering & Ordering),

    Internal customer should be assigned to the ordering plant ( MM -> Purchasing -> Purchase Order -> Setup stock transport order -> assign the internal customer to the ordering plant and assign the Sales area of the internal customer.

    Assign its Sales area to the delivering plant

    Assign the document type and Delivery type NB and NLCC

    Assign the Supplying plant --> Receiving Plant --> NB

    Take the delivering plant and assign the sales area.

    Vendor master has to be created and assign the supply source (Delivering Plant).

    Create a purchase order ME21N ---> Save

    Delivery VL10 G ---> Calculation rule (appropriate) --> Assign the purchase order number here and execute.

    Select the Delivery creation line and do the back ground process.

    Start the log display and see the delivery document number by the documents button

    Goto VL02N --> do picking and PGI --> Then do the MIGO with respect to the delivery document.

    Billing (Intercompany pricing conditions should be set).

    AND

    1. Customer No. for the Goods Receiving Plant - OMGN

    2. Availability Check- Checking Rule (if necessary) - OMGN

    3. Assign a Delivery Type for the Delivering Plant - OMGN (for Stock Transport Orders, NLCC)

    4. PO type (which i believe you have done) - OMGN

    5. Assign Vendor No. to the Supplying Plant (done) - VK02

    6. Assign Customer No. to the Purchasing Plant for the Inter-Company Invoice (but you need to assign this to the Sales Organization pre-assigned to the Purchasing Plant),

    IMG-SD-Billing-InterCompany Billing-Define Internal Customer No. by Sales Org

    ***and by the way for the Invoice to work between Cross-Company Plants, you need also to have a Sales Org for the Supplying Plant and a Pricing Determination Procedure

    Reward points if u helpful

    Cheers,

    Govind.

    STO:

    Transfer of goods from one location to another location,it may be between plants within the same company code or in different company code's plants.

    within the company code,bet plants,

    receiving plant will raise the STO in Supplying/issuing plant-ME21n,

    Supplying plant will deliver the goods to receiving plants ,

    then we need to pick n post the Goods Issue-VL02n,

    nw when we can observe that the STO qtty will be added into receiving plant and reduced in Delievering plant,

    To do this, we need do prior customizatin in SPRO-IMG,-material should be created in both plants( receiving & Supplying)

    -maintaing the stock only in supplying plant

    -create a dummy customer in supplying plant's sales area(if u have one sales area, create in tat comp code n sales area)

    -assign this customer number to receiving plant's details along with the sales area,

    -Assign the STO doc type(UB) to Supplying plant, along with checking rule

    -ASsign the Del type (NL/NLCC) to Supplying n receiving plant.

    eg: Stock transfer between storage loc's

    Tcode: MB1B

    enter movement type: 311

    Plant & Storage location:

    Continue,

    enter material ,qtty & receiving storage location,

    -n save.

    Hi Vas,

    Stock transfer is a process where material is transferred from one plant to another plant within the same company e.g. Pune stock transfers to Mumbai within same company code.

    - Also following types of Stock Transfer options are available:

    •Manufacturing Plant to Depot

    •Depot to Depot

    •Depot to Manufacturing Plant

    For doing a Stock transfer through SD the steps are as follows: -

    • Creation of Stock tranfer order using T-code- ME21n (Here the Receiving Plant creates a STO on the Sending Plant)

    • Creation of Delivery document against the STO using T-code VL04 (Here the Sending Plant creates the Delivery document against the STO created on it)

    • After creation of Delivery document PGI (Post goods issue) is done for the Delivery document using T-code-VL02n.

    • After PGI is done a Billing document is created against the delivery document – (Here the logic for creating a Billing document is that the same will be carried along with the Truck carrying the material). Here a Pro-forma document is created as against normal Billing doc used in Sales. The pro-forma document does not carry an subsequent accounting entries as the same is only tranfer of material from one plant to another and not a sale.

    You can use F8 billing type for creating Performa Invoice for Delivery

    • After Proforma invoice is prepared you can view the stocks in trasit using T-code- MB5T.

    • Finally the Receving plant can do the goods receipts of the goods against STO created using T-code - MIGO.

    Hope the above helps you.

    REWARD if it helps you!!

    Regards,

    Ajinkya

    Hi

    STO means the stock transport order. in sto we ar having 5 scenarioes .

    Let me explain the scenarioes first

    First: sto between the storage loctions under the same plant

    second: sto between the plants under the same company code

    third: sto between the two company code withe billing

    fourth: sto withou the billing which is called as INTRA sto

    By using the movements types u can define the sto process

    there are some movement types wher eu can defie the sto process

    311 for the sto process single step between the storage locations

    313 for the sto process two step between the storage locations

    315 for the sto process two step between the storage locations

    301 for the sto process single step between the plants

    303 for the sto prcess two step between the plants

    305 for the sto process two step between the pla nts

    641 for the sto process single step for the Intra sto process

    647 for the sto process two step for the intra sto process

    643 for the stop process single step for te inter sto

    645 for the sto process two step for the inter sto process

    these are the movements types which are useful for the entire sto process

      Hi

      good after noon iam ganesh,..here we have 4 plants under one company code ie 01,02,03,04 in this 4 plants 03 and 04 are completely export oriented,

      now i want to restrict the goods transfer between these plants like

      01---02 -


      accepted

      02 01 --


      accepted

      01 03 --


      not accepted

      01 04 --


      not accepted

      02 03 --


      not accepted

      02 04 --


      not accepted

      03-03----


      accepted

      04-04----


      accepted

      01 01 --


      accepted

      02-02----


      accepted

      here i try to restrict these by using moment type 301 for 01 and 02 and 311,542 for all 4 plants but its not restricted...

      ie i want to transfer the stock from all plant to distributor or vendor

      and at the same time transfer to 01and 02,02-01 and at the same time not transfer to 03-02,03-01,04-01,04-02 and vice versa

      i tried it using 2 movement types one is 301 for 01 and 02 plant

      and the other one 541 this is for all plants 01,02,03,04.

      for this i tried it in 2 ways

      1)i create 2 independent roles and maintain these 2 objects separately...so normally due to iam not assigning movement type 301 to the plants 03 and 04 the user not suppose to transfer the stock form 01-03, 01-04,02-03,02-04 and vice versa but these all possible here when i attach the other role to the same user where i maintain the movement type 541.

      2) i attach these 2 roles separately to 2 different users and tried it then the restriction is possible iam not clear where the exact problem and why the movement types is not restricted when i assign a single user?

      pls reply me ASAP

      regards,

      ganesh
