ARMs - Ship to other plant process flow

194 Views

Good afternoon gents,

I'm configuring an integrated ARM/rSTO solution for my company, and all the individual pieces are working correctly, however the automatic document creation is a bit baffling.

Right now in the ARM returns document I'll specify the logistical follow-up as ship to other plant, however the rSTO itself will only get created after I carry out the inspection. That is not a big deal, ASSUMING that's the standard functionality and one of the BAdIs isn't messing me over. I could simply specify the inspection codes in the ARM itself, but that doesn't fit the business process perfectly, and I'd need to rework some BAdIs (again, not a big deal)

For people that have worked with an ARM-rSTO solution - on the original receipting plant, did you have to carry out the inspection parameters in the ARM sales document, or did you have to do a fake receipt and a fake inspection with msr_inspwh without inputting any inspection data in the ARM?

Right now in a drop ship scenario, it does not really make sense for me to even have to select any inspection options on the original receipting plant, as the stock never actually gets there.

In reality sales org 1000 plant 1000 sells to customer 123456, and they create a drop ship order, where plant 1100 sales org 1100 delivers directly to sales org's 1000 customer. When the return happens, the process is exactly the same but backwards. Even though sales org 1000 is issuing the credit to the customer, the items only ever get shipped back to sales org 1100, to avoid the extra logistical costs. Once 1000 inspects the goods, the issue a credit to sales org 1100 as well.

I guess my question is whether the standard process flow is:

a) ARM (w/o inspection code within the returns order) -> Goods receipt -> rSTO

b) ARM (w/o inspection code within the returns order) -> rSTO

c) ARM (w/o inspection code within the returns order) -> Goods receipt -> MSR_INSPWH -> rSTO

d) ARM (WITH the inspection code within the returns order) -> rSTO

e) ARM (WITH the inspection code within the returns order) -> Goods receipt -> rSTO

f) ARM (WITH the inspection code within the returns order) -> Goods receipt -> MSR_INSPWH in the original receipting plant -> rSTO

?


Kind regards,
