new storage location

Hi all,

can we create a storage location physically outside the plant. Because in my scenario, our material will be lying outside the company for some days before i sale it to the customer. there is no excise involved and to send the material outside, a printout of transfer posting document alone is sufficient.

Please suggest me if not storage location, what i should go for considering simplicity of the scenario.

    Hi

    Please explain the scenario. Why are you keeping the stock outside your plant in an unknown (not at customer place, and not in the plant) location.

    Thanks,

    Ravi

    Hi

    In SAP storage location is created under a plant or for a plant

    Storage location is an associate of plant and it doesnot have any individual role

    Whenever we mention storage location in any transaction we need to give that plant there

    This is SAP

    But practically in actual business scenarios the place where we actually store the goods can be geographically away from your plant where we manufacture the goods

    That also in SAP,we define as it is inside the plant (storage location inside the plant )

    So the actual business scenario can differ slightly from SAP

    our material will be lying outside the company what do you mean by this statement

    If you could explain more it will be useful

    If you mean what i said the geographical storage location is outside the plant premises it can be addressed in standard SAP

    Regards

    Raja

    material will be lying outside the company for some 
        days before i sale it to the customer

    If any material is being stored outside a manufacturing plant, you should consider that also either as a warehouse or depot or plant. So once all the required configurations are over, you can stock transfer from manufacturing plant to this location and from there, you can generate invoice from SAP.

    This is allowed even from statutory point of view since you are disclosing the stock movements in SAP.

    thanks

    Hi,

    If this situation is usual one, then YES you can create storage location for this. But then you need to assign this to plant. Because, as stated, in std SAP storage location is under plant.

    hope you get some idea

    regards,

    Sagar

    Hi,

    You can make that place as one of the shipping point instead of storage location.

    And you can do the configuration for that purpose.

    Because storage location can be defined for plant only.

    if there is no plant than you can't define the storage location.

    Regards

    Raj.

    Hi,

    storage location must be always assigned to a plant.

    What do you mean by "outside the company"? In case your stock will stay in vendor's premises, think about VMI for your scenario.

    Thanks and regards,

    Zuzana

    In this scenario that I have done before is that you could move it to consignment stock, and then issue it from the consignment stock.

    Its a bit fore configuration, but from an accounting and inventory point of view it actually shows that your stock is not on your site, and is physically on another location before issue.
