Introduction:

Now a days multiple warehouses are connected to a single plant where stock transfer happens from one storage location to another storage location which helps in efficient procurement strategies. Here we can usually post without value since the transferred material is managed with in the same plant and therefore has the same valuation data as before. In this blog post, I will be discussing Intra Company STO with in the plant between two EWM managed warehouses i.e. supplying as well as receiving plant are same.

We can Transfer the goods between Storage locations in two ways:

  • Without Shipping Point in the Purchase Order, we can transfer the goods/products by using MM – STO. (Without Delivery and Without Billing)
  • With Shipping Point in the Purchase Order, we must maintain some Configurations Settings. (With Delivery and Without Billing)

Configuration:

  • Define Shipping Data for Plants
  • Configure Delivery Type & Availability Check Procedure by Plant
  • Assign Document Type, One-Step Procedure, Underdelivery Tolerance
  • Activate Stock Transfer Between Storage Locations
  • Assign Delivery Type and Checking Rule According to Storage Location
  • Define Shipping Data for Stock Transfers Between Storage Locations
  • Define Rule for Determination of Shipping Point
  • Assign Shipping Points According to Storage Location
  • Assign Warehouse Number to Plant and Storage Location
  • Assign Warehouse Numbers from Logistics Execution
  • Map Storage Locations from ERP System to EWM

STO FLOW:

  • Create PO in the supplying plant (here supplying and receiving plants are same)
  • Create outbound Delivery in VL10B.
  • Check for the available stock in the Storage location.
  • Go to Outbound Delivery Request of the supplying plant warehouse & complete GI process.
  • Check for the stock in the supplying plant which must have been reduced.
  • Check for the Inbound delivery number which got generated automatically in the background w.r.t outbound.
  • Then go to inbound delivery request and complete the WH process in the receiving plant.
  • Check for the stock report in the receiving plant.


Below mentioned three steps are mandatory fields to obtain the shipping tab in the PO:

  • Define Shipping Data for Plants
  • Configure Delivery Type & Availability Check Procedure by Plant
  • Assign Document Type, One-Step Procedure, Under delivery Tolerance

These are the mandatory steps we need to maintain to get the shipping tab.

Configuration Path:

Define Shipping Data for Plants:

SPRO –> IMG –> Material Management –> Purchasing –> Purchase order –> Set up Stock Transport order –> Define Shipping Data for Plants

We can assign the customer in the supplying Plant for this process. (i.e., the supplying and Receiving Plant are same for this process.)

Configure Delivery Type & Availability Check Procedure by Plant:

SPRO –> IMG –> Material Management –> Purchasing –> Purchase order –> Set up Stock Transport order –> Assign Delivery Type and Checking Rule

saikiran_0910_1-1706697123747.png

Assign Document Type, One-Step Procedure, under delivery Tolerance:

SPRO –> IMG –> Material Management –> Purchasing –> Purchase order –> Set up Stock Transport order –> Assign Document Type, One-Step Procedure, Under delivery Tolerance

saikiran_0910_2-1706697123749.png

Activate Stock Transfer Between Storage Locations:

SPRO –> IMG –> Material Management –> Purchasing –> Purchase Order –>Set up Stock Transport Order–>Set Up Stock Transfer Between Storage Locations–>Activate Stock Transfer Between Storage Locations

saikiran_0910_3-1706697123759.png

Configure Delivery Type & Availability Check Procedure by Storage Location:

SPRO –> IMG –> Material Management –> Purchasing –> Purchase Order –> Set up Stock Transport Order –> Set Up Stock Transfer Between Storage Locations –>Configure Delivery Type & Availability Check Procedure by Storage Location

In this Step we can maintain

  • Purchase document category 'F' , here use PO type UB, supplying plant, issue storage location and delivery type(prefer to create new delivery type by copying delivery type 'NL' replenish delivery.)

saikiran_0910_4-1706697123762.png

In this step we can create new delivery type by copying from the standard delivery type.

SPRO –>IMG –> Logistics Execution –> Shipping –> Deliveries –>Define Delivery Types

Here I create the new delivery Type as “SL” by copying from the standard one “NL”.

saikiran_0910_5-1706697123766.png

Here I am assigning the Supplying Plant, Supplying storage location and Delivery Type to Document Type.

saikiran_0910_6-1706697123772.png

Define Shipping Data for Stock Transfers Between Storage Locations:

SPRO –> IMG –> Material Management –> Purchasing –> Purchase Order –> Set up Stock Transport Order –> Set Up Stock Transfer Between Storage Locations –>Define Shipping Data for Stock Transfers Between Storage Locations

In this step we can assign Sales organization, Distribution Channel, Shipping Point and Division to the Plant and later select the Plant and click on the Storage location.

saikiran_0910_7-1706697123775.png

By maintaining the data click on the save button.

saikiran_0910_8-1706697123781.png

Define Rule for Determination of Shipping Point:

SPRO –> IMG –> Logistics Execution –>Shipping –> Basic Shipping Functions –>Shipping Point and Goods Receiving Point Determination–>Set Up Storage-Location-Dependent Shipping Point Determination–>Define Rule for Determination of Shipping Point

saikiran_0910_9-1706697123785.png

Assign Shipping Points According to Storage Location:

SPRO –> IMG –> Logistics Execution –> Shipping –> Basic Shipping Functions –>Shipping Point and Goods Receiving Point Determination –>Set Up Storage-Location-Dependent Shipping Point Determination –>Assign Shipping Points According to Storage Location

saikiran_0910_10-1706697123788.png

Assign Warehouse Number to Plant and Storage Location:

SPRO –> IMG –> Enterprise Structure –> Assignment –> Logistics Execution–>  Assign Warehouse Number to Plant and Storage Location

saikiran_0910_11-1706697123792.png

Assign Warehouse Numbers from Logistics Execution

SPRO –> IMG –> SCM Extended Warehouse Management–> Extended Warehouse Management–> Interfaces –> ERP Integration –> General Settings –> Assign Warehouse Numbers from Logistics Execution

saikiran_0910_12-1706697123795.png

Map Storage Locations from ERP System to EWM

SPRO –> IMG –> SCM Extended Warehouse Management–> Extended Warehouse Management–> Interfaces –> ERP Integration –> Goods Movements–> Map Storage Locations from ERP System to EWM
