    hi

    the term itself explains

    i means this item will not be stored ,as it come in plant it get consumed or issued to the dept

    Non-stock material includes materials that are not managed on an inventory basis (for example, small parts such as nails) though physically in stock. Non-stock materials are managed in the SAP System using the key NLAG.

    Hi

    Non-stock material is material that is not held in stock because it is consumed immediately. (Office supplies such as stationary. You need to create purchase order and accounting document for payment but the stock balance is always zero as it is issued out immediately to the various department.)

    Hi,

    When you procure Non-stock items, you have assign an account assignment category like cost centre K in the PO , it is manadatory. So the when you do goods receipt for the PO , stock will be posted to consumption account and not to your warehouse and no stock is maintained.

    Regards

    Hi,

    Some materials like office supplies are procured directly for consumption, for example For Office supplies cost centers. These materials are not stored in storage location and hence there is no relevance to inventory management.

    In SAP, non stock materials can be with or without material master record. These materials are procured directly for the account assignment object like cost center, Asset, etc.

    Thanks and Regards,
