Hello All,

I am using MB51 to try and see what activity was done monthly.  My struggle is how to interpret the information.  For instance what is being produced, what is being produced for sales, what is being transferred to another plant etc.

My question is the following:  Can someone please explain to me the movement types below in understandable terms.  For instance I understand 101 is a goods receipt for purchase order or order.  But what does that truly mean?

101

261

301

309

343

601

641

657

701

Further, what can be classified as production?  From what i understand movement type 101 would be products produced.  Movement Type 101 and 261 together would be your product available for sale.  Movement type 641 would be inventory that was shipped to another plant.  Is this correct?

I realize their may be a lot here, but if anyone can offer any insight, the help would be very much appreciated.  Take Care,

Joe

Check whether you can use the preset movement types.

If not, this is how you define new movement types:

    1. Select a movement type and choose Edit -> Copy as.
    Overtype the selected movement type with the new movement type (beginning with 9, Y, or Z) and copy all dependent entries.
    The system copies all control indicators from the reference movement type to the new movement type.
  1. 2. Check all views of the new movement type and, if necessary, change the control indicators. Please note that there is a detail screen for some of the views.
  2. 3. Also copy the reversal movement type and enter it in the view
  3. Reversal/follow-on movement types .
  4. 4. Save your settings.

Copy, change movement types

In this step, you can

  • change the setting of existing movement types
  • define new movement types

  When you enter a goods movement, you must always enter the movement type. The movement type has important control functions in Inventory Management. It is essential for 

  • updating the quantity fields
  • updating the stock and consumption accounts
  • selection of the fields used for entering documents
  • printing goods receipt/issue slips

At the end of this document, a short description of the movement types defined in the Standard configuration is contained under Additional information.

Note

You have already completed the settings of the existing movement types in other steps. This means that, normally, you do not need to maintain the existing movement types.

The various control indicators for the movement types are divided into several views in this step (for example, entry control, posting control). You can find the relevant control indicators in each view.

As some control indicators do not only depend on the movoment type, but also on other parameters (for example, debit/credit indicator, special stock indicator, indicator for updating quantities and values), you may find several entries for a movement type for certain views. These entries are necessary to cover all possible data constellations in the system.

Standard Settings

In the standard SAP R/3 System, movement types are preset for all transactions/events.

Recommendations

SAP recommends that you work with the settings defined in the standard system. In this case, no action is required on your part.

However, if you have to define new movement types, it is recommended that you create these movement types with reference to an existing movement type. In doing so, you do not have to manually maintain the control indicators.

What Is a Movement Type?

 

When you enter a goods movement in the system, you must enter a movement type to differentiate between the various goods movements. A movement type is a three-digit identification key for a goods movement. The following table contains examples of movement types.

 

  

Control Functions of the Movement Type

 

The movement type has important control functions in Inventory Management.

For example, the movement type plays an important role in

  • updating of quantity fields 
  • updating of stock and consumption accounts 
  • determining which fields are displayed during entry of a document in the system

Further, what can be classified as production?  From what i understand movement type 101 would be products produced.

101 you can consider the movement for goods receipts against PO and Production order

Movement Type 101 and 261 together would be your product available for sale.

For Sale and transfer the goods to another plant and using the goods some other purpose For E.G using some materials for production like machinary parts ,checmicals ...etc

Movement type 641 would be inventory that was shipped to another plant.  Is this correct?

Yes,If you use Stock transport order then this movement you need to use.

301 also same purpose but the transaction is different MB1B with out STO.

Let me know if you have any concerns.

Movement type 101 is only for GRN for PO or production order. 101 and 261 are for :GRN for PO or production order and GI for production orders..641  is for Goods transfer to another plant STO.( The use of Movement types for all the Functional modules is same only the nomenclature is some what different)
