How do we know that Outbound Delivery is not created for full quantity

Dear SAP experts,


We are planning to use VL10B in background to creating deliveries for our STO (Stock Transport Order). However we come to know that when OD created, it is not necessarily with the same quantity with the STO. Eg. I create STO for 10 pcs material A requesting to plant X to deliver it to plant Y. When VL10B is running, it found that plant X only have 7 pcs material A, hence it will only create outbound delivery for 7 pcs for picking in plant X.


From here the scenario flows where TO is automatically created and trigger warehouseman in plant X to pick 7 pcs of material A in plant X. They wouldnt know that the original request is actually for 10 pcs. Requester in plant Y will now so much later that their request cannot be fully fullfiled by plant X.


In this scenario, how should people in plant Y know that SAP only create deliveries for 7 pcs instead of 10?

Best regards,

John

    • Hi, in the real operation, the warehouseman would not care about the STO, as they are operating based on the delivery and picking request printed. They wouldnt know that the delivery created for 7 pcs is actually coming from STO which have original quantity 10.

    the warehouseman would not care about the STO

    In such cases, we need to educate the users to adopt to SAP functionality by which, at some point of time, their job would be simplified.

    The simplest way is to execute ME80FN to see the PO history and know what is the ordered quantity

    We just create outbound delivery with the transaction code VL10b, for PGI there is a pre-requisite to create transfer order, here you can create TO mandatory and analyze your stock before doing PGI.

    Thanks,

    • In our site, TO is created automatically. By SAP standard, when the TO can only found 7 pcs (out of 10 pcs required), delivery quantity is updated to 7 pcs only

    the buyer can actually already know what is available for him when he creates the purchase order, by activating the ATP check, and the delivery will only be created for the confirmed quantity, so he must not be surprised when less material than ordered arrives .

    Kindly go through the note 885177 - Stock transfer in Purchasing: New schedule line processing
