Delivery plant

Hi

What is the difference between the fields Plant (WERKS) in MM and the Delivery plant (DWERK) in sales order. Are they both one and the same if so why the field name is different?

Thank you

    Dear Nivi Ram

    Plant has multi various functions in Logistics

    In PP it is production unit

    In SD it is a delivering plant

    In MM It is a storage location or stock maintaining plant

    In most of the cases a single plant itself will perform all these three functionalities

    Say if there is only one plant say 1000 then WERKS and DWERK both will be 1000

    We should be concerened more with SD that is delivering plant

    This is what we assign to the combination of sales org cum distribution channel in enterprise structure assignment

    and for this delivering plant only shipping point is assigned in enterprise structure assignment

    What we maintain in CMIR (it at all it is maintained ) and CMR is also delivering plant

    In MMR Sales org data 1 tab also delivering plant is only maintained

    If WERKS and DWERK are going to be different then to process sales STO has to happen between WERKS and DWERK

    Sock has to come to DWERK (SD delivering plant) to process sales

    Regards

    Raja

    Hi

    The delivery plant is the plant from the SD side, when you assign the plant to sales organization + distribution channel, the plant became in delivery plant.

    Thanks in advance,

    Mariano.
