    Hi Dilip,

    In standard SAP consignee process, we will not be creating the subsequent documents with reference, it could be CI, CP or CR.

    You might have noticed that, when you create CF, the stocks are saved in Customer Consignee stocks(you can check the same in MB52). Now once you create CI, system will pick the stocks from this Customer Consignee stocks and not from the regular unrestricted stocks. All these are handled by movement types that are maintained in Schedule Lines.

    You can also observe that there are no standard copy controls for the consignee process.

    Hope this will clear your doubt.

    Dear Dilip

    Adding to what the other friend has said

    Consignment issue cannot be done on own to a customer without referencing consignment fill up as per my knowledge in Std SAP

    Consignment process itself is we are not sure of the sales and hence we are taking a chance with the customer by keeping our valuated stocks with him

    Suppose we keep material X to customer A say 50 units this is Consignment fill up

    Out of the 50 he uses 30 units this is Consignment issue

    The balance 20 we take back and this is Consignment pickup

    Out of the 30 of Consignment issue if he returns 10 units then it is Consignment return

    So the consignment process has to start from Consignment fill up

    From Consignment fill up stocks only you can make Consignment issue

    If straight away you want to put up Consignment issue for a customer then there is no meaning of Consignment there

    You can do it as a standard order itself why do you want as a Consignment issue

    This is business logics and SAP logics too

    Consignment process itself we are not sure of that sales and that is followed

    If we are sure of sales then a normal order is sufficient

    Hope i have put it clear to you

    Dear Dilip

    As per standard process, Consignment Fillup process is you move the goods to a warehouse via 631 movement type and this warehouse stock will also comes under the inventory of manufacturing unit. Only when you move out of this warehouse to end customer via 633 movement, the stock from manufacturers' inventory will get reduce.

    Now tell me whether is it necessary or not to refer CF while creating CI ??

    Consignment fill-up process is keeping certain product inventory in a plant(or at customer site), which is meant for a specific customer's consumption. The quantity to be kept depends on agreement between the customer and the vendor.

    Consignment issue process starts, when the customer really consumes the product. The customer may consume the entire quantity or partial quantity out of the consignment inventory.

    Now with respect your question, creation of the consignment issue is possible only when there is a consignment inventory, which is the result of consignment fill-up. But when you create consignment issue documents, you are not putting any consignment fill-up reference numbers.
