i have a question regarding cut-over activities. Our materials have, batches, serial numbers, QM and ECM. I will ECM out of scope here, but i hope you can help me with the rest. We are going to merge two plants and this had some consequences.

Stock load in to the new plant.

I have a general idea of how to do it, but i would like to verify it with you experts. I have the following plan in mind.

  • create the materials in the plant with the necesary views.
  • create the equipments (for the serial numbered materials. link the equipments to the material and serial number).
  • create the batches with the correct values in the characteristics.
  • upload the materials into stock (whether it's quality stock or unrestricted or...). depending on the stock type, use different movement types.
  • activate QM inspection type in the materials. I read somewhere that this would generate the inspection lots for the batches in QI stock? I didnt confirm this in our system yet.

It's an awfully short list. Would this be sufficient according to you?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Best regards, Peter

I would actually add a step to load prices, because the prices from material master load may already be obsolete when you load stock weeks after the material load.

if you load vendor consignment material then you even need info records and vendors. vendors are as well needed for subcontracting stock.  if you have stock at a customer, then customer has to be present, projects for project stock, sales orders for sales order stock.

and what you read somewhere about inspection stock is correct as you can read in help.sap.com too: Activating an Inspection Type Despite Existence of Inspectio

Hi Jurgen,

Thank you for your reply. Thanks for your additional input!

So aside from your input regarding prices, consignment stock, vendor stock and customer stock you are saying that my steps regarding Serial numbers, batches and QM relevant materials are correct and sufficient?

BR, Peter

I cannot tell anything about the serial numbers, I never came across serial numbers when loading inventory. The business unit that uses it started small and directly in SAP, so there were nothing to migrate (I just fear this will be different soon when they are leaving to an own platform - and I am already assigned to that project), but all others steps are fine
