What is the process for tracking Empty Gas Cylinder ?

I'm working for a refinery and they purchase gas cylinders with gas from a vendor.
They issue the gas to the cost center. But the client is unable to track the stock of the empty cylinder. Kindly suggest process to track cylinders count.

    Hi Jubin,

    You can try doing it in two ways using Returnable package process which we usually do for pallets, containers,etc.,

    • Create the PO with two line items for cylinder and gas (two seperate Mat ID where cylinder has LEIH Mat type) and for the cylinders tick the return indicator. After which you do MIGO where you post gas with the 101 mvt and then the cylinder with 161 mvt. However, make sure the return quantities tally with stock.

    OR

    • Create the PO with two line items for cylinder and gas (two seperate Mat ID where cylinder has LEIH Mat type) After which you do MIGO where you post gas with the 101 mvt. Receive the cylinders in MIGO, without PO ref by 501 M (RTP Vendor) by entering vendor. Return the stock to vendor via 502 M mvt by entering same vendor in MIGO. (If needed by client, you can can flag the quantity and value update in OMS2) .

    Thanks

      Hi Asif,
      Thanks for the reply.

      In your second solution, why to have cylinder as line item in PO? PO will have open quantity right if we don't receive the cylinders via 101 mvt?
      501 M should be sufficient if I'm not wrong. Kindly correct me if I'm wrong.
      We just need to track stock qty, so 501M is suitable for my query.

      Thanks
