Third-Party Processing: Inventory


We are using the SAP function "Third-Party Processing". We are using the function in it's standard (SAP R/3 4.7).

The auditor now has the following issue: Shipping the goods starts after paying the goods. Out of this, while shipping the goods, we are the owner of them. In this circumstance the ship is our warehouse.

SAP does not allow an Inventory Management within Third-Party Processing:

Since a third-party order involves a movement from the vendor direct to the customer, Inventory Management is not in any way affected. If you wish to document the movement in the system, however, you can create a goods receipt for the third-party order.

The issues of our auditor are the following:

- warehouse stock is wrong

Does any body know, how to solve the issue? How do you manage Third Party Processing & Inventory?
