Plant vendor

Hello, I have few questions as follows.

for inter company STO, we create a vendor and assign plant to it and it becomes plant vendor. why is this step required ?

Secondly there is concept of Plant customer. In which scenario this is used and where in system it is defined.

Thirdly, in customer master, we need to define vendor number and in vendor master, we need to define customer number. what is the scenario which uses this setting and why this master data maintainance is required for ?

    If you would not assign the plant to your vendor then your vendor would just be a third party like any other vendor.

    It is simply the way to tell SAP that this is an internal vendor.

    And so it is with the customer which represents the plant too.

    Linking a customer to a vendor in the control view of vendor master is needed for subcontracting vendors when you want to use SD deliveries to send the components. Outbound deliveries require a customer master, and this is the only way to tell which customer master represents the vendor.

    It is further used to net receivables with payables in case you vendor is also a customer for you.
