I have checked the forum but not able to get the req answer.
Why do we create an inbound delivary against schedule agreement and then MIGO.
What is the importance of inbound delivery?
What if we do GR without creating an Inbound delivery?

Typically when working with a inter/intra company process where you are connected in a SAP to SAP way (both plants in the same SAP client) the issuing plant would post the outbound delivery and the receiving plant would post goods receipt against the outbound delivery.
This avoids unnecessary data entry. So the same outbound delivery that is created at the shipping side is used again for posting the GR on the receiving side.
In migo you have the option to post the goods receipt against the outbound delivery.
If you still want to use an inbound delivery then you should create an inbound delivery based on the shipping data. Then when posting the GR for the inbound delivery the outbound delivery is also closed.
PS. When working with STO process when the PGI is done in the shipping plant an additional column will appear in the MD04 screen showing the stock that has been shipped so that you also have this visibility.
