Open Transfer Order for Plant to Plant movements?

Postby bcudworth » Thu May 07, 2015 2:48 pm

It is common practice for us to utilize LB01 and LB10 to create open transfer orders to confirm at a later time (within a warehouse / plant). Is there a way to create open transfer orders for a Plant to Plant movement (301) to be confirmed at a later time? Maybe to our designate default Plant to Plant bin?

You will need to make sure you have a correct WM-IM interface configuration for the plant-to-plant IM mvt 301.
It's not clear whether your two plants are mapped to the same WM warehouse or different warehouses; what happens will depend upon this, and whether the "from" plant/sloc is WM-managed and/or the "to" plant/sloc is WM-managed.

If the transfer is internal, you'll get a posting change notice (if transferring inside a warehouse) which is equivalent to a TR but includes the requirement to change the plant and storage location of the WM stock being transferred; you can generate a TO from this and confirm it later. The TO will have two parts, part 1 to remove the stock from the real bin to a "transfer" location, then place the stock from the "transfer" location - in which the plant/sloc has been converted - to the real bin; this may be the same as the "from" bin if the transfer is logical (e.g. the plant change is to change ownership or valuation of stock but the stock stays in the same physical location) or different (the plant change is accompanied by a physical move).

If the transfer is between warehouses, you'll get a TR to pick stock to the "transfer" location in warehouse 1 and another TR to putaway stock from the transfer location in warehouse 2. If the transfer involves only one end being WM-managed, you'll just get one of these TRs.

Thanks for the intuitive response!

Each Plant has a one to one relationship with their warehouse. Example, Plant 1001 has a warehouse 001 and Plant 1003 has a warehouse 003. In addition, both are WM Managed. In this scenario, what T-Code would be utilized to create the Transfer Requirements and would the one on the front end (Source Plant) be created at the same time as the one at the back end (destination plant) or are they created separately? Thirdly, what would be used to confirm this transaction?

In this case you should be able to set things up to generate the TRs automatically as soon as you execute the 301 movement between the plants in IM.
The IM transfer will debit the WM stock from a transfer storage type (9xx) in the sending warehouse and credit the WM stock to a transfer storage type (9xx) in the receiving warehouse. If automatic TR generation is set up, you'll get a TR in the sending warehouse to transfer stock from real locations to eliminate the negative stock in the transfer location (essentially, a "pick") AND a TR in the receiving warehouse to transfer stock from the transfer location to real locations (essentially, a "put-away"). You can create TOs from these TRs using a variety of transactions.

With two plants/warehouses, you do have the option to perform the transfer in two steps, or even using stock transport orders. The latter are more involved but allow a formal pick-delivery-receipt-putaway process which will more accurately track physical and financial transfer of the stock.
