    Dear Prasad,

    Create the barrel as material.When you are making goods receipt, make goods goods receipt for the barrel also. Then seell the barrel in the usual pattern.

    Else,

    you can add this barrel in Chemicals production BOM. When you receive, you cant receive only chemicals as product, you have to receive / issue with barrels.

    When you purchase chemical , obiviously barrel price also included in procurement cost.

    So, if you have material master record for these barrels, you can even sell it.

    Hi

    the simplest solutions for this is to create this material as scrap material and take stock using 521/561 mvt type. Then create a seperate order type for such sales. The proceed with your normal order management cycle. Check with your accounts team how they would like to account for the revenues. In that case you need to check the revenue determination and pricing proceduire as well.

    The advantage of this will be... you will be able to take only the stocks you need to sell and dont maintain and valuate the inventory of drums as the value will be negligible compared to your cost of chemicals received in the drums. Again you create the stocks only for the nos you need to sell.

    Create a seperate material master for empty barrel.

    GR stock of material you want to sell using t.code MB1C with mvmt type 521(create seperate storage location for scrap)

    Create a seperate order type with seperate sales area.

    Create a sales order,maintain base price for customized condn type using VK11.

    Do delivery(VL02N).

    Do PGI(VL02N/VL06G).

    Do Billing(VF01) - Do configuration for revenue a/c seperately for scrap.

    While you can certainly set these up as materials - and use an inward movement, sales order, delivery etc. to sell them, you have to consider if either accounting or the warehouse/plant people wish to track the inventory.

    You can sell these item uses a DR memo request and sales order related billing. This is the most frequent approach to selling miscellaneous supplies, assets etc that are accounted for as cost recoveries (i.e. the revenue doesn't go to the top line - but reduces the company's expenses/COGS.)

    You should even consider having these sales created as FI invoices to the customer - and not involving SD at all. This avoids having to consider how to treat these sales for the purposes of - as example:

    - Profit Center accounting (which can be handled manually if needed in the FI invoice)

    - COPA

    - SIS
