2 steps goods issue for cost center

Greeting,

I just transferred from SD to MM, my client has a request:when they are doing goods issue for cost center(201), they hope can finish it via 2 steps, the 1st step is using for application(no stock qty be reduced after transaction be saved.), the 2nd step is for warehouse post the goods issue, this step will base on the 1st material document to post goods issue.

Is it possible to reach this process? if yes, please guide me how to config it in detail.

Thanks & Best Regards

Roger

    Hi Roger,

    Your query is mixed with two different processes, let me give you an example for better understanding in SAP two step process is something in which first step we just remove the goods from storage and 2nd step we post the issue, unfortunately its not your requirement and its not possible also for GI against cost center.

    But as per your query you requires to post a GI document based upon warehouse TO, so assign the movement type 201 with warehouse movement type and create transfer order but your accounting document will be generated based upon Inventory management document, in this process, you cannot post GI without creating Transfer order.

    Pls try and do let us know!

    Thanks,

    Hi Roger,

    In SAP we don't have a 2 step process for GI for cost center but instead you can make use of the reservation functionality

    1. Step1 - The requestor will raise a requisition using transaction MB21

    2. Step2 - The stores/whse incharge can refer this reservation & post the goods issue in transaction MIGO

    Hope this helps!

    Hello Roger,

    You could maybe consider to use the standard Sales order type FD with a "dummy" customer. This sales order type will post the goods issue against a cost center (as an expense) instead of posting it agains Cost of Goods Sold.

    You could set it up to create the outbound delivery automatically to skip one step... but to do that you should first analysy throughfly the whole business process and the impact of if.
