Consignment PO


I have maintained an consignment info record for vendor and material but the info record is not getting picked in Consignment PO.

Could anybody tell me the possible reasons?

    In Consignment PO, Price doesn't appear and at the time of GR also, No Accounting Entry is generated.

    After GR, Stock of material gets updated in Vendor Consignment Stock.

    To use Consignment Stock, first you have to transfer stock from vendor consignment to un-restricted stock using movement type 411 K in MB1B. At this time system will generate the Accounting Entry;

    (BSX) Stock Account - Dr
    (KON) Consignment Liabilities - Cr

    And then do the Consignment Settlement in MRKO for the Transfer Posting Material Document. Following A/c entry will get generated;

    Vendor Account - Cr
    Consignment Liabilities - Dr

    Prerequisite: -

    1. ME11 - Consignment Info Record (With Price and proper Tax Code)

    2. MRM1 - Create Condition Record for Output Type KONS

    • Hi,

      Yes, it is certainly required to assign Standard Purchasing Organization to Plant. Because it might also happen that Vendor is maintained for multiple Purchasing Organization so at the time of Transfer Posting system will pick up the Purchasing Organization assigned to the Plant as Standard and search for the relevant Purchase Info Record for that Purchasing Org and pick up the price.

    The consignment PO will not have any price

    When you do the GR no accounting document will be posted,reason is material still belongs to vendor

    The price will be pulled form an inforecord at the time of transfer from consignment to own

    MIGO/MB1B -411K

    Hope its clear

    Have you selected the radial button consignment while you are creating Consignment inforecord.

    Usually the system will not pull the inforecord when you are doing a consignment PO. if you enter the inforecord manually, then it will pull certain information from the inforecord to the PO. the price is not pulled into the PO as for the consignment PO there will be no price.

    Accounting enteries will be passed when the stock is withdrawed from consignment stock to own stock.

    Thanks & Regards,

    You can not See Purchase Order Net Price Value in Consignment Info Records (It will be Greyed) Even If you have Maintained Consignment Info Record.

    Consignment is a process of placing a thing in the hand of another, but retaining the ownership until the goods are sold or used. In SAP consignment business process can be implemented very easily using the following steps.

    Activate Consignment inforecords using tcode OMEV. This activates the consignment prices to be picked up using the consignment info records.

    Configure a special procurement type using IMG->Production->MRP->Master Data->Define special procurement type.

    In OBYC configure the consignment payables account (transaction KON).

    Assign the special procurement type created in step 2 to all the materials that are to use the consignment process. This is done in the MRP2 view of the material master maintenance transaction

    Create Consignment info record using tcode ME11. Select info category as consignment. Create general data, Purchase Org data and conditions. Conditions allow you to create time dependent prices.

    Create PR/PO using the item category K. Due to the nature of these items, price is not applicable and so do not enter price. During consumption, the price will be picked from the consignment info record.

    The following transactions are used in consignemnt MB54 - Consignment stock MRKO - Settle consignment liabilities. Consignment stocks are not included in the company stock valuation. It is normal, as the ownership is still with the vendor.

    During GR also You cannot see any FI Documents or Price Until you Transfer it to Vendor Consignment Stock to Own Stock USing MB1B 411 K Movement type. The Consignment Info Record will Come into Picture During Consignment Settlement MRKO Only.
