Move goods from one WM- SL to another but avoid WM documents (TO / TR etc.)

Hi all

We’ve the following scenario and I’m kind of helpless. I appreciate any helpful input.

We’ve two plants at one of our sites. The reason is, that one plant belongs to the Production Company and the other to the Sales Company. However, we’ve one warehouse for both companies and don’t want to move the goods when we sell them from Production Company to Sales Company. The process is as follows resp. should be as follows:

  1. We produce the goods in plant US02 and put them into, let’s say storage location 20-10-15 of warehouse USW – the status is in quality inspection.
  2. Quality team releases the goods to unrestricted use
  3. Goods are being sold from Production Company to Sales Company via PO and delivery
  4. The goods should still be on 20-10-15 of warehouse USW

I’ve implemented the process and it basically works. So on MM and SD Level, everything is fine. However, when the PO is delivered, a TO / TR for picking is required. After goods receipt is posted against the delivery resp. the PO, a TO / TR for put away. However I’d like to avoid WM documents only for that scenario. Thus MM movement would be performed (plant US02 to US01), but the goods would remain on that very storage location in warehouse USW.

Does anyone has a similar scenario? How could it be solved? Any ideas?

Thanks a million in advance!

    you have not really described how you do this process in MM and SD.

    One step movement in IM , or sto transfer purchase order , or stock transfer purchase order with SD delivery, one-step or 2step, what movement types?

      Yes, that's right. Sorry!

      The selling process from Production Company to Sales Company works as follows:

      1. The purchasing organization of the Sales Company creates a NB Standard PO (sometimes based on PR, sometimes based on gut feeling) with Vendor Production Company.
      2. The NB PO triggers a NLCC delivery
      3. Goods issue of the delivery with movement type 645 and goods receipt with MVT 101 against the POis performed in one step.

      Thank you

    Before you can perform a goods issue for a delivery you actually have to do picking, which means you are requested to create a WM-TO from the bin to the interim bin in 916.

    So I don't really see a straight way to keep the inventory in the same bin by using outbound deliveries.

    Maybe a MIGO 301 movement with company code clearing could be used, anything else would probably require a lot customizing (separate item category that does not require picking, for this probably a different delivery document type and eventually a different PO document type in case you have intercompany which needs picking) to avoid the picking step. And I am here still not sure whether it would then work and create a posting change notice instead of a TO.

    Yes, exactly that WM- TO should not be created.

    As we need a detailed sales invoice (Production Company invoices to Sales Company), the 301 movement has been ruled out.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks a lot
