Cylinder tracking - in MM perspective and in SD perspective

Hi,

Please let me know the best approach to handle this scenario (in MM perspective and in SD perspective) in SAP:

Our client is in the business of providing oxygen cylinders (for rent) to patients. The client is renting out the cylinder from a vendor i.e. the ownership of the cylinder lies with the vendor. The empty cylinder from the patient is collected and a full cylinder is provided. The patient is charged based on full cylinder delivered.

Requirement:

Full cylinder and Empty cylinder quantities needs to be tracked. Not at the serial number level but at the quantity level.

Can somebody explain the document flow, stock type, movement types involved etc. in both MM point of view and SD point of view? Any documentation on this topic would also be helpful.

Thanks,

Shan

    Hi

    It's a perfect sample of returnable packaging. See the print file for sales in this [link|http://help.sap.com/printdocu/core/print46c/en/data/pdf/SDSLS/SDSLS.pdf] in page 227 to 233. Empty cilynder is the packaging.

    I hope this helps you

    Regards

    Eduardo
