    hi naresh,

    Consignment is the special stock where the goods is present physically at the customer site but ownership lies with the company.

    The consignment process in SAP standard consist of four small processes:

    Consignment fillup (send materials to customer consignment).

    Here you have a consignment fillup order and a consignment fillup delivery.

    Consignment issue (issue materials from customer consignment to the customer).

    Here you have a consignment issue order, consignment issue delivery and a consignment issue invoice. (the flow is very similar to a normal OR flow, but the materials are issued from the consignment stock instead of plant stock unrestricted).

    Consignment return (return materials from customer ownership to customer consignment).

    Here you have a consignment return order, consignment return delivery and a consignment return invoice. (the flow is very similar to a normal RE flow, but the materials are returned to the consignment stock instead of plant stock returns).

    Consignment pickup (pickup consignment stock and move it to plant stock).

    Here you have a consignment pickup order and a consignment pickup delivery.

    Note that in consignment fillup and consignment pickup there are no invoices since there is no change of ownership for the materials.

    regards,
