Assign Maintenance Order to PR and receive PO into unrestricted stock

Hi guys,

Please provide your thoughts, solution, or suggesstions for this

before going into details, I want to let you know that I already know the difference between Stockable items (L) and Non-stockable items (N) in MO.

when selecting stockable items in MO, then system generates reservation, then GI is done with movement type 261 against the MO

when selecting non-stockable items in MO, then system generates PR, then PO, and GR will hit directly into the MO


in our company, FI department is forcing Maintenance department to request all spare parts only through maintenance orders where reference equipment will be maintained in the MO, and FI can see to which equipment the spares are requested. Otherwise, FI will not release Maintenance POs.

On the other hand, non-stockable items in the MO will not solve our issue, because the maintenance store need to maintain extra stock (for emergency) in the storage location more than the specified quantity in the MO. When receiving the non-stockable items from PO, they will be consumed directly into MO and will not go to unrestricted stock in the storage location

We tried to make PR manually, then choose Account Assignment as (F) for Order, and assign the maintenance order manually into the PR. After that PO is created with reference to the PR. When we made GR for the PO, the quantity was also consumed into the maintenance order specified in the Account Assignment (similar to what is happening when selecting non-stockable items in MO).

Briefly, we need the ordered quantity in PO with Assignment Account (F) to be received into storage location unrestricted stock, then we will issue against MO from the storage location

Your help is highly appreciated.

    I don't see why the FI department cares how the costs are derived, so long as they get onto the maintenance order correctly..

    But why not order all your stock via a material master with item category "L".

    Some of these materials will hold stock, but some can be set up such that there is zero stock held and therefore a PR/PO is created on the next MRP run.

    From memory, its done via the MRP Type, but talk to your MM Team for more advice.

    Of course, if there is no material master, then you will need to raise a PR from the maintenance order anyway.. So what do the FI deparment require in this scenario?
