STO for Muliple Plants through delivery

Dear Gurus,

I have configured the STO process through Delivery and Shipment for my 4 plants within one CC. The process is running end to end. The problem is that one of my plant can recieve stock from any one of my other 3 plants or you can say that 1 plant can transfer stock to any of the other 3 plants as the requirement arises.

Unfortunately, in SAP Customizing Implementation Guide - Materials Management - Purchasing - Purchase Order - Set up Stock Transport Order - Define Shipping Data for Plants there is provision for entering only one customer number and I have created a separate customer master for all 4 of my plants. I need to do this for automatic route determination.

Can anyone please suggest a solution or a work around for this process.

The customer in V_001W_IV-KUNNR is "plant customer", it represents the issuing / supplying plant to which it is assigned and not the customer(s) of receiving plant(s).

You have to extend this customer to the STO sales area of its own plant and of the receiving plants'. Whenever you create an sTO in which the receiving plant is this, the plant customer will appear in the delivery as ship-to. Independently from the supplying plant, the ship-to party is the same if the receiving plant is the same.

So, one of them is enough even if you have several plants and you want to have STOs between them.

You can define several customers for issuing plant based on plant/storage location combinations:

SPRO > MM > Purchasing > Purchase Order > Set Up STO > Set Up Stock Transfer Between Storage Locations > Define Shipping Data for Stock Transfer Between Storage Locations

However I guess you only have to understand how this works and you need only one customer per plant...

Please understand how it works before sending lots of messages...
