Issueing Nonstock material

Hi Gurus,

My clients procurement process is that, system creates PR thru maint order for Non-stock material -> create PO -> after material procurement they issue material against cost center. Instead of issuing to Costcenter, they wish to take that material into Storage location(stock) first & from their they want issue against maint order/reservation.

Could you plz help me in this regards that how can i achieve this?

Thanks In Advance.

Regards,

Amol.

    If you are creating PR using Maintenance order, then you cannot have the concept of Inventory. If you want to have inventory then create PR using ME51N, then create reservation against the Order and issue against the order.

    Hi Amol,

    You need to ask your MM counter part to create Material type.

    But in your case if a material is assigned to storage location then its no longer a nonstock item.

    Hi,

    I think as everybody has mentioned may be you can change the Account assignment category to K instead of F in Define account assignment Cat and Document type for Purchase requiistion in General Data under Maintenance and Servcie Order, but this will have effect on every Purc req generated through maintenance order, for the Purc requisition created in this way wil have to enter the cost center in the account assignment.

    Thanks & Regards

    Hi,

    Its better to do procurement by using standard MM functionality through PR-PO using contract or without it, even if the account assignment category is changed in PM customizing, it will be copied to Purchase Requisition and it will not be possible to change it in PO. Since it is not possible to leave the account assignmnet category blank in PM customizing (if left blank it is not possible to create Purchase requisition from MTN order) it is not possible to have PO without account assignment category whcih is required if we don't want consumption at order(F) or cost center(K) level. I think its better to use standard MM functionality to purchase materails but to purchase services we can use the MTN order .

    Thanks & Regards

    When you receive the material from supplier,receive against your storage location,and issue to maintenance order.

    i assume now it is direct consumption.if so change PO configuration check with MM.

    Hello,

    When you create any PR from Maintenance Order The Account aasign category Is Always F-Order.While Doing GI against PO it will always Take Account aasign category Is Always F-Order.Try To change the accoun assignment category for PR .
