Change planning plant in production order

Hi Gurus,

my business scenario is the following:

I have 2 plants that are assigned to 2 different company codes. Plant A (ordering plant) and Plant B (supplying plant).

The users place a sales order on plant A and through MRP with special procurement key 80 the planned order is turned into a production order in plant B.

But in the order confirmation the system tries to post the GR in plant A. Is there a way to change the planning plant of the production order at any time i.e in order creation or order confirmation? Because I need the GR against the production order to be done in plant B. Since the subsequent posting according to the business scenario would be after production, the goods should be sold from Plant A to Plant B via a sales order.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Panos,

    SPK 80 doesn't suit your requirement, since by design it is doing GR in the ordering plant.

    Alternatively you need to work with a SPK like 40, that is stock transfer from B to A. Just set up the intercompany process for this stock transfer.

    This way, when MRP in A detects a need for replenishment, a stock transfer requisition from B to A is created. Then MRP in B will create a planned order for production (that you will convert into a production order later). GR is in B. The stock transfer requisition is converted into a stock transfer order, and the actual transfer takes place.
