    Hi,

    MB1B transaction code is mainly intended for transfer postings from one storage location to another.

    ME20 specially designed to process a subcontracing goods issue.

    In MB1B we have to input the mvt type as 541 to supply a goods to a subcontracing vendor whereas in a ME2O transaction, system defaults the movement type as 541 which easens the task of remebering the mvt type while doing a subcontracing goods issue.

    Post goods issue - Directly transfers the stock to Material provided to vendor.

    Whereas Delivery option can be used if you want to process the material issue through a delivery process ie thorugh SD route. In short, PGI will be used when it follows MM route, whereas delivery option will be used when it is to be processed through the SD route.

    Regards,

    hi,

    already supplied material is monitored in ME20.

    where as in MB1B, u can send any material.

    for doing the ME2O, u should have done Mb1b earlier.

      Hi Friend,

      Normally, M/t is send to vendor by Mvt type 541 or ME2O.

      For doing ME2O - u should have done Mb1b earlier its not needed...u directly give the m/t to vendor by using ME2O itself....

      Major difference is - In ME2O u monitor the available stocks

      In 541 - u dont see the available stocks.

      From sas...

    Hi,

    In MB1B you can send out components to your SC Vendor via 541

    - with reference to a PO (the necessary qty for a PO; materials & quantities determined by SAP)

    - w/o PO reference (as many goods as you want)

    In ME2O you can send out the goods via Inventory Management or via Shipping (you can create a Delivery doc. for the shippment - 'create delivery' > via Shipping and 'post goods issue' > via IM).

    Here you can see which components have to be provided for subcontractors (special stock at vendor and excess stock (or 'to be provided stock) at vendor are dsiplayed); you can select the components manually and to-be-delivered qty is offered by SAP (you can change it).

    So in this case you don't provide the components for a separate PO (qty needed for a PO) but you provide them based on MRP requirements.
