Material to materials transfer

Dear experts,

I have run into a business process that I cannot find a good solution in SAP for, it's regarding the following flow:

1. We have a return receipt on a material A (this is an assembled item that consists of e.g. B, C & D)

2. After return it turns out that component D has not been returned

3. The stock needs to be adjusted in order to reflect this (Remove article A from stock and add B & C to stock)

4. The preferred solution direction would be similar to the 309 movement type (which does not work)

5. Our customer wants a very easy solution (because the work volume is quite high)

I'd appreciate your input on solving this issue,

Thanks, Mark

    Hi Mark,

    Based on your scenario I am assuming that you have BOM maintained for material A with components as B, C and D in CS01 tcode. If yes, then as per standard return process you must be creating a return PO and postings against that will put compentns B , C and D back in inventory. now as we do not have component D physically in warehouse but our return PO above posted that in inventory so we would be doing reversal transaction to remove stock of component D from system.

    This is what i understood but would like to know why you wanted to peform a material to material transfer?

    First thing you want return stock to whom and from where means you want return to vendor or else?

    second you are saying 309 not working can you explain which problem you are getting for same?

    309 is material to material transfer and prerequisite for same is

    1) Both material should have same base unit of measure ( material D and can say material X)

    2) you can transfer from unrestricted stock to unrestricted stock only in this 309 movement type

    Is this subcontracting scenario.. where u issue B,C,D to job worker to assemble A.

    Job worker has used only B,C and D is unused and remain with job worker..

    If thats the case during receipt of material u can untick the component D during GRN BOM explosion..

    So that stock remains with job worker. Now u can issue this A material along with Material D to job worker to get back A material.

    The faults of this method are:

    1. During stock check the actual usable material is not actually present in stock until u issue it back to job worker to attach material D

    2. The stock value need to be analyzed since material A is issued back to jobworker. If u are using batch valuated material then it would be ok..

    Please check whether it is applicable.
