SAP Bill and Hold Process Configuration in Sales and Distribution

Hi Experts,

Good Morning,

I need complete information on the Bill and Hold Process in SAP Sales and Distribution. I am working on my new requirement.

I am new to this process and has not come across in my SD career. I have enclosed the snap shot I received.

sap-bill-and-hold-process.png

As per the process flow is enclosed below:

In the Bill and Hold Process, orders are entered with a separate document type (BH). This allows the orders to be segregated for processing. This Bill and Hold order type will streamline and initiate the Bill and Hold delivery process. Once the order is created, a Bill and Hold Delivery is created with a new delivery type (BAH). This delivery type will automatically trigger an inventory movement from the main inventory warehouse to a non-inventory Bill and Hold plant/warehouse. Since a Delivery event occurred, we are able to generate an invoice to the customer and impact revenue recognition.

Southern Wine & Spirits will have visibility of inventory levels in their warehouse as well as inventory levels in the Bill and Hold warehouse. From a financial perspective, the inventory in the Bill and Hold warehouse will not be valued. At the point in the process where the customer is ready to take delivery of the materials, a Free of Charge Delivery transaction is entered out of the non-inventory warehouse. This Delivery will become part of that day’s normal delivery processes for picking, packing, and loading the truck.

As per the above it says Order BH and Delivery BAH. I am unable to find this document types in Sales Order and Delivery Document configuration.

Please can some one share more information of the complete process and the configuration set up which will help me.

Kindly revert back in case any queries.

Thanks,
Farhan.

    As far as I know this is not a standard SAP process. BH and BAH document types should have been customized document types (or maybe activated via a business function or an IS-specific solution). Having said that, I have not heard anything like that at all before.

    • Dear Imran,

      Why do you think I could answer this question? As I've answered in my first answer, my guess is that this is a customized process, and only the persons who have customized this can have any knowledge about it. Therefore the preceeding two questions asked by you cannot be answered by neither me nor anyone here. Please take some time to analyze the business process in SAP if you have an SAP system which includes this business process. If you've gotten those screenshots from the internet, well then godspeed.

    Hi,

    As per your statement-" This delivery type will automatically trigger an inventory movement from the main inventory warehouse to a non-inventory Bill and Hold plant/warehouse"

    This can be mapped like Consignment process,where you initially remove the material from main warehouse and Dump it in special stock ware house like consignment stock.

    Regards
