Vendor consignment stock sent to subcontrat PO


The business circumstance is this:We get the consignment goods from the vendor for free.Now We need to send this consignment stock to the subcontracting PO.However,the Movement type 541 K is unavailable.But I don't want to transfer this consignment stock to un-restrict using 411 K because the stock are free-recieved and if i do this it may influence the stock value.

Whether Vendor consignment stock can be send to suncontractor without out converting to company own stock ?

Hope to get the answer.

    When you want to send the consignment stock received from the vendor to subcontractor, you have to take that stock in your own stock.

    Because consignment stock means, it is vendors stock and you stores it in your premises. but whenever you required that material you will use it and pay to vendor.

    The moment you want to send it to vendor, it means you want to use that stock and then vendor has to pay for it.

    Secondly, SAP doesn't support two special stocks at the same time( Ie.e special stock as subcontractor "O"and consignment"K").

    Hope you get the above explaination and it help you.

      The vendor has provided you with consignment goods. Once you are sending the consignment goods to your subcontractor this is supposed to be consumed. Hence as per standard cycle you should pay the vendor who had provided you the consignment stock.

      You send this material to your subcontractor through normal subcontracting cycle. Once the subcontractor sends the material back to you then billing should be done to the first vendor who is also your customer with the total amount including the consignment cost.

    Hi Feng,

    I think you have to use a different material number for the free customer supplied stock (which is stored as vendor consignment) so that it does not affect your own stock value, unless you use split valuation, in which case the vendor consignment stock can be receipted at zero value in its own valuation type.

    I think someone else mentioned that SAP does not allow both consignment and subcontracting to be used at the same time and that's your restriction here. So you'll have to move the vendor consignment stock into your own stock first before issuing to the subcontractor.
