Return of indirect materials in maintenance

Hello Friends,

I have a scenario where I return the used maintenance part, say alternator of truck, to vendor and he will credit me for the same. how can I configure this scenario in SAP ?


Work order --> consume alternator against work order (part doesn't exist in system any more) --> after say 6 months, I replace this alyernator with new one --> i return the used alternator to supplier --> supplier credits me.

Now as the part doesn't exist in system, how can return it to supplier?

anyway other way around ?

Thanks in Advance,

Dear Pat,

Since the material is no more in stock, you will have to bring it back to stock. If it is issued against any order you may do the 262 movement or else you will have to do 202 movement to bring it back to stock.

This will be objected by finance since the value of the material is not the same after 6 months due to its usage.

Once stock is available, you may create a returns p.o

Create outbound delivery based on the p.o

Create invoice

Hope this helps you.
