vendor wise stock tracibility

Dear SAP experts,

I am implementing the SAP in MARBLE INDUSTRY, The client makes the artificial marble blocks, for which he uses the raw materials which is imported from different vendors.

for example,

suppose for raw material R1, The vendors are V1,V3,V3, Now for use in production to make particular quality of artificial blocks, he has to use R1 material from V2 vendor.The SAP system should restrict the other vendor material to be used.That means the quality is differ vendor to vendor.For

R1V1- One quality, R1V2-2nd quality, R1V3-3rd quality, and for client the quality is the name of product

Now after making block, he check the stock of it, he should know the raw material used and know from which vendor raw material used?

he also has to keep the track on inventory vendor wise.

please suggest me how to map this scenario in SAP?

thanks in advance

Ravi

    Hi,

    Solution 1. vendor wise Sloc maintenance. - from this, your requirement of vendor wise stock as on date can be tracked.

    Solution2. Raw material should be part of BOM. - from this, you can avoid wrong entry of raw materials to the particular quality.

    Use batch management to manage vendor material stock.

    You can map 3 storage locations s1 s2 s3 for the vendors v1 v2 v3 and then use the stock in them as if you are

    using it from vendors.

    Hi,

    You can create vendorwise material group. Say 001- Marble powder V1, 002 -Marble Powder V2.

    Another option which I had used is, in material code, mention 2 digits of vendor code.

    Hi,

    additionally with solution 1, kindly create different valuation class as per vendor if it is required.

    it would be possible with batch management

    the vendor is stored in the batch record.

    the batch classification can be used to store quality values.

    Batch determination will find the right batch according to selection criteria

    and batch determination can be customized to not allow any manually entered batch that does not meet the selection criteria
