Stock transfer PRs are not getting created in APO

Hi,

I have a plant-to-plant transfer is configured using special procurement type. When APO creates stock.PRs , it does not provide any numbers to PRs and they are not getting trasnfered to R3. CIF model for PIR & POs are running good.

In CIF post processing these PRs as stuck and I see " Vendor master data does not exist for plant A" . There is vendor master data created for plant A in R3 and material info record also exists.

How to de-bug this post processing queue to see what is missing in vendor master data?

regards,

shan

    Hi

    Can you explain in detail your scenario..you say plant A so I suppose there is plant named B in your scenario. which one is the source location and which one destination location?

    In Stock transfer from plant to plant scenario, key is to have correct settings for the system to do source determination.

    Assuming plant A as destination and plant B as source. First, The material should be maintained at both the plants.

    You need to have a purchasing info record(ME11) linking your material and the source plant B.

    I assume you are using external procurement type in your material master. Special procurement type 40 (stock transfer)should be maintained in material master.

    Then the system creates a STReq and PurReq using the source plant B. For the system to do this source determination should happen. To verify that..you can check the following...

    When you transfer the purchasing info record, system automatically generates the external procurement relationships with source location as plant B, destination location as plant A and info record reference.

    When you transfer material master data, the system auto'lly generates transportation lanes between plant A and plant B. (keep in mind transportation lanes should be manually created here)

    So in essence you have to check if all the above things are done by the system.

    Hope Im clear in this

      Hi Shan

      First of all I think you don't need a vendor for Stock transfer scenario. You said info record exists between plant B and the material in plant A so you should be able to check it in APO Master Data in external procurement relationships Transaction. Check in that if you can see it and verify the source location to be plant B and destination to be Plant A.

      Here the vendor function would be done by your plant B, i.e source location. SO tranportation lane should be automatically created from plant B to Plant A.

      The external procurement relationship(info record) should appear as APO Procurement relationship not OLTP. For this you should maintain in material master of material " Planning field =1 for planning in APO "

      I think this is all you need.

      regards

    Hi Shan,

    Check whether you had maintained the supplying plant relation b/w these two plants and assigned a document type for it.

    Do it via SPRO -> Materials Management -> Purchasing ->Purchase Order -> Set up Stock Transport Order -> Assign Document Type, One-Step Procedure, Underdelivery Tolerance

    Thanks & regards,

    Hi Shan,

    Ensure that Plant assignment in the vendor master record for Plant A is correct.

    In tcode XK02 - Go to ->Purchasing Org Data -> Purchasing Data -


    Extras -> Add. Purchasing Data

    Plant assigmenet can be confirmed in T001W Table.

    T001W-LIFNR ( Vendor number of plant)

    Warm Regards,

    Keshava Murthy Dasappa

    Hi,

    Is this a subcontracting scenario between a vendor and the plant, I am not sure if you can transfer Pur Req between a subcontracting vendor and a plant from APO to ECC.

    Thanks,
