Return to vendor options at time of receipt

One of our manufacturing sites has posed a question regarding return to vendor options when receiving damaged or defective material. Our current process, which I believe is the standard process in SAP, is to receive the full quantity even if part of it is defective. Because we use quality management, the material is received in quality inspection and an inspection lot is created. A usage decision must then be made to accept or reject all or part of the material. Once the defective material has been rejected by usage decision, then a return to vendor posting is done and the defective material is returned to the supplier. This obviously provides the necessary record in SAP for vendor evaluation purposes.

Our manufacturing site is asking if there is a way to reject the defective material at time of receipt, keeping only the usable material, and still record the rejection of the bad portion in SAP. My contention is that this is not possible, but I wanted to see if anyone else had any ideas on it. For background purposes, this is a 4.6C system. The site in question is WM and handling unit managed, so all stock movements are by inbound and outbound delivery. I appreciate any insights on this topic from other members.

    Hi,

    What about GR blocked stock? Wouldn't it fit your sceanrio?

    (Please take care that "GR blocked stock" doesn't equal "blocked" stock type!)

    Regards,

    I'm not sure that we have the option of doing that in an inbound delivery. I will take a look at it tomorrow and see if this is a viable option. I will also post the results and mark the question answered if it works.

    Thank you for the reply.
