Inspection lot need to transfer at the time of STO GI

Hi All,

There is a typical requirement for STO GI

Letu2019s say there is a material P in sending plant A where the stock is in quality status & UD clearance is pending for a batch X, but for the same material P I need to make GI w.r.t to mvt type 641, to another receiving plant B. I want to transfer this inspection stock through STO route. The receiving Plant-B will clear the quality stock once it is received.

While trying this scenario, it is throwing an error "only 0.000 KG of material number batch number available" in sending plant A.

Is there any way how to transfer inspection lot pending stock from plant A to plant B through SD route.

Has anybody come across this kind of issue? If so, please share your thoughts.

    Is this a common occurance? SAP doesn't really believe in moving material until it is cleared.

    If it happens infrequently, I would just have the lab manager post the stock to unrestricted before the UD with a restricted batch status. This material can be shipped on an STO but not sold to a customer.

    They can then use QCA1 if they want to transfer the inspection lot to the receiving plant.

    If it is something that happens all the time, consider creating batches in restricted batch status and for those materials where the transfer of material is common before UD post turn off the Post to QI stock.

    If the material is not batch managed, I don't have much for you. You'd have to have the lab post the stock to unrestricted before the UD and then ship it. The lot could still be transferred to the other plant using QCA1.

    • Sorry, a bit deslexic here on the transaction code. I was doing that from memory. You have the correct one.

      Since it is a just an occasional thing, I wouldn't spend a lot of effort on changing a lot in the system.

      Have the lab manager post the material to unrestrcited and ship it on the STO.

      You can't consider QI stock for any shipments. Not going to happen.

    SAP is behaving correctly while raising the error.

    Since the material is in quality stock, thus cant be moved.

    Explore following IMG path:

    SPRO --> Logistics - General --> Batch Management --> Batch Status Management --> Activate Batch Status Checking in Warehouse Management

    Here Transfer of batches with status 'restricted' allowed

    If this indicator is set, the transfer of batches with status 'restricted' is generally allowed.
