WIP Cancellation Needed During Goods Receipt



I noticed SAP cancels the WIP total only after the order status changes the DLV or TECO. If that is the case when the partial goods receipts are posted after the WIP postings to BS, the stock accounts will be double posted and this will be wrong.

For example :-

Production order debit costs = $1000

WIP calculated = $1000 and posted to Balance sheet

Partial goods receipt occurs for = $200

Now stock accounts in balance sheet will have a debit value of $200 in addition to the WIP amount of $1000 in the WIP accounts. Hence the total debit value of the balance sheet will be $1200 (200 + 1000) until the final goods receipt is posted so that the WIP is cancelled after the final goods receipt.

Hence the balance sheet debit values will be wrong till the final goods receipt is posted.

How can we correct this situation?
