Base Unit of measure & shortage of diesel

Hi Guru's,

I got few doubts while interacting with the client, pls let me know the soln & what are the settings required ?

1. Purchasing the steel rods in terms of Kgs, but maintaining the stock & issuing them in terms of pcs. There is no standard relation betn Kgs & Pcs ie; For 1Kg of steel we may get 10 pcs & 11 pcs of steel rods,Its not constant.

2. They will purchase the diesel in barrel of 5k ltrs & while doing the GR we cant chk physically the exact ltrs. & while issuing to the cost centre they are facing 2 - 3 ltrs shortage, where we need to show the shortage.

B/regds,

CB

    Dear CB,

    Good Day!!!

    Ref. to your Query.

    Below will be the possible solutions:

    Case 1:

    As said by VB; the steel rods even if are purchased in kgu2019s the same are available in standard sizes (diameter & length). Hence for the same you will have to create different Material No for different types of steels having different diameters & length (possibly length will be same; in some cases it may not). While doing GR you can accept the material in terms of kgu2019s & with the help of basic unit of conversion you can issue the material in terms of units / pcu2019s at GI.

    Case 2:

    This is too possible in SAP. For this you can declare the difference Qty as scrap / wastage in the system through the T-code MB1A & the movement type will be 551. This will post the entry as the difference as scrapped or wasted material in the inventory of the storage location or the warehouse.

    If useful pls do issue the points.

    Regards,

    Yogs.

    😉

    Hi,

    For your case - 1,

    The pieces per kg is must be depend up on the size / diameter of the steel.

    For each diameter of steel you create one material code and for this you maintain UOM Conversion interms of base UOM, Purchasing UOM and Issue UOM.

    For case-2, this is related to out of SAP problem. Due to spillage / storage conditions it may happen. It cannot be mapped in to SAP.

    Regards,

    VB
