Account Assignment Category on Shopping cart

Hi All,

Where exactly is the Account Assignment Category available on a Shopping Cart?

I have a requirement to create Consignment Order in R/3 based on the Account Assignment Category on Shopping Cart.

Please advise.

    You'll see the account assignment category in the 'Cost assignment tab'.

    Please be aware that if you create a SC for a direct material the 'Cost assignment' tab won't be visible, as the account assignment will be determined automatically based on the setup in SAP ECC.

    Consignment material is is owned by the vendor untill you withdraw it from the consignment stores or post it to own valuated stock.

    you take ownership of the material when you issue to a cost center or transfer to your own stock.

    you can play with po new create BADI to create a consignment material item category K and mapped to consignment order document type .but standard SRM dont support to create Consignment order.

    some info extracted from sdn threads on consignment...

    It is the stock which is lying at your plant for conignment which still belongs to the vendor and then later when get issued or moved to the own stock gets reflected as normal stock under plant storage location level...

    No you can't directly make the stock transfers for the same, you firstly need to transfer it to unrestricted stock and then make transfers from there ...

    Consignment stocks are special stocks.

    in Po you can see consignment stock indicater K under item category which indicates for vendor consignment ( vendor stock) ,

    This stock belongs to vendor . stock transfer can be carried out for this.

    Customer Consignment is a form of business in which the vendor maintains a stock of materials at a customeru2019s location. The vendor retains ownership of the materials until they are withdrawn from the consignment stores. The customer is only charged for product once it is reported as used at which time it is deleted from inventory.

    With a Consignment Fill-Up document (type KB), stock is physically sent to the customer (VA01 to Vl02n) but no billing is done because the stock is still owned by the Vendor.

    Once used, a Consignment Issue (KE) document type is processed with VA01 (and a "virtual" Delivery is processed) which removes the stock from Consignment stock and Bills the customer (VF01).

    If a customer is billed for stock which was not really used, a Consignment Return (KR) is created with reference to the Issue (KE) which puts the materials back into Consignment stock and gives the customer credit.

    If products that are in Consignment stock are found to be damaged or no longer needed then a Consignment Pick-up (KA) is created to move the stock from Consignment back to stock (no credit is issued because the customer was never billed).

    Account Assignment category can be viewed under Basic data tab of shopping cart. Here we have option to select the Account Assignment as 'cost centre', 'order' or 'WBS element' depending on the settings made in user organisation structure in backend system.
