Dear Gurus,

One of the dispatch warehouse facility is open as a "Storage Location".

we have two plants 1000 and 2000, 1000 have A001 storage location located on the above site and 2000 have B001 storage location loated based on the above site.

Means a remote location is having stock of plant 1000 and 2000 with batches.

Now a order received of 1000 carton, and at storage location 300 cartons available that deliver via STO to storage location A001 associated with plant 1000 and 700 cartons available that deliver via STO to storage location B001.

User at the head office create a sales order, but he is unable to aware about the stock position of the warehouse.

but when order received at warehouse, he is splitting the order on two lines,but unable to enter the plant on the 2nd line, its greyed out, plant 1000 is copied from sales order.

Please suggest how can i enter the two plants at outbound delivery documents, is it possible.

Looking for the gurus feedback, with thanks.

Hi..

Do these plants have seperate shipping point ?

You could have got the answer by googling the same.

As you should be aware that each delivery document is initiated from exactly one shopping point.

Dear Kamlesh,

Every plant have its own shipping point, plus warehouse location is also open as a shipping point. same warehouse location open as a shipping point for both the plant.

Do you mean to say that in sales order 1000 plant is maintained for both materials but in delivery you want to change plant for 2nd line item, is it so? Then it won't be possible. Better to change plant in sales order and check shipping point determined for both line items if it same then it would be possible to have both line items in delivery.

Veselina Peykova Madam, Please correct if I am wrong.

I am not really sure what the OP is trying to explain - first he mentions a STO for 1000/A001 and 2000/B001, then a sales order for 1000 (probably no storage location in the order). I would assume that ATP was performed for 1000 and schedule lined were confirmed. For whatever reason the logistics specialist decides to deliver part of the quantity from 2000, but it is unclear why.

It is also unclear what is understood by order in this case - sales order, delivery or something completely different:

but when order received at warehouse, he is splitting the order on two lines,but unable to enter the plant on the 2nd line, its greyed out, plant 1000 is copied from sales order.

Considering that obtaining sufficient information to answer the question involves a lot of guessing and asking for clarifications, I prefer not to give an opinion on what could be the best approach to handle the business process :)

I have not encountered such setup before - 2 plants with separate default shipping points for the same product assigned to a single warehouse and another shipping point (I interpreted this as manual selection) assigned to both plants.

I can think of a few possible options - have 2 items for the different plants and set the same shipping point for both of them in the order, or have 2 items for both plants, separate shipping points, separate deliveries combined on the same shipment, or have a single item for one of the plants, move stocks between plants, confirm the whole quantity and deliver everything with a single delivery from the same plant.

In all cases this looks inconvenient for both sales and logistics which makes me wonder how reasonable is such setup.

Thank you Madam!

OP should have got an answer from your last reply.

Awaiting for OP's reply.
