Reduce stock quantity but not the stock value

Hello All,

We have below scenario:

We buy 1000 LBs of Material X at 2000$ from a vendor.

We receive the material and accordingly moving average of material is calculated as 2$ per LB.

But out of this 1000 LB, 100 LBs is waste and effectively only 900 LBs can be used. So in this case we would want the moving average to be 2.22$ (2000/900) because that's the effective cost of this material.

Please let me know which movement type will help me achieve this in SAP.

    Hi Jan,

    Thanks for your inputs.

    We have come up with following process to handle this:

    Create a return PO for 100 LBs for free and since its free we just have to MIGO it and not worry about MIRO. This reduces the stock quantity without reducing stock value which increases moving average price to 2.22 . We are testing this and hopefully it should work.

    And what will happen with received 100 Lb's waste? If you received 1000 LB on stock and 100 LB of it is a waste - you should probably scrap it.

    Price will stay at 2$ and u need to consider further operation to increase 2,22. For example changing stock value with MR21. Please discuss this with your FICO department.
