Plant has been physically closed down but there is still stock in it

Hi MM Gurus

I need help on this problem urgently. The scenario is as follows:-

Some of our plants are physically closing down because they are not used more frequently and when we did a stock count we found out that there is still some stock lying on our plants.

What is the best way that I can use to take the the stock out on the plants that have closed down?

Another scenario is that on the same plants that are closing down , the system shows that there is still stock on some of the materials but physically there is no stock. What is the best way to handle this?

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Regards

Khuselwa Mabandla

    follow the phyiscal process.

    If the plant is to be shut down, what do you do with the material?

    you probably move it to a different plant, or you sell it, or you scrap it...........

    Whatever happens, SAP has a movement type that supports this process.

    -


    to remove stock in SAP that is not found:

    Create a physical inventory document via MI31.

    count it and enter the result via MI04.

    Post the difference via MI07.

    hi,

    go for Physcal inventory transaction, and book the diff.

    for excess material which tally with ur book stock, u can transfer the same to another plant by 301(inventory document) or u can do it through STO (351 mvt).

    for shortage material( sap stock is there but physically not available) book the shortage in physiclall inventory under)
