QM QA32 UD options in Stock Posting
I have a query regarding SAP QM
In T-code QA32 ,when we do UD ,when we come over to Inspection lot Stock Tab, under this we have Stock Positing.
To be Posted
To Unrestricted Stock
To Sample Usage
To Blocked Stock
To New Material
Actually I want a complete documentation about these postings, that is .
when these are used&
what are the Movement Types being used for this
If you have any good link for it then do refer.
Why I am asking is this because we have a raw material of 50 units when doing IQC.
When results were done 30 were Ok & 20 were of poor condition.
At the time of UD I asked the user to put the 30 unit in To Unrestricted Stock& remaining 20 units in Return Delivery.
But our MM expert told me that we do not have this facility and 20 units is to be placed in To Blocked Stock
put this material in storage location
So I want a complete & proper knowledge about this, what is the differences of Return Delivery and To Blocked Stock ,
After the Blocked Stock ,what will happy?

The movements associated with these options are as below,
To Unrestricted Stock - 321
To Scrap - 553
To Sample Usage - 331
To Blocked Stock - 350
To New Material - 309
To Reserves - 350
Return Delivery - 122
Coming to your specific query for incoming rejection which field you should refer? It depends upon what customization is done for your plant to suit business practices?
- When you post the stock in to Blocked Stock - The stock just gets posted in to block compartment of certain storage location mentioned against it. Stock from system does not reduce. Later if you find the material is ok you can again transfer the same in to UU by 343 movement type. If you find it is not ok then you can make return delivery from block stock also using MIGO
- When you post the stock in to Return Delivery - The stock gets reduced from system and it has impact over Purchase Order directly. This executes 122 movement in background which generates FI document with the stock reduction effect to appropriate GLs
Approach 2 should be followed when you have logistic set up ready to send the material back to vendor immediately. Otherwise there would be stock inconsistency in physical stock and system stock as the stock in system was already consumed. But if you have considerable time to arrange for logistic to lift the material back it is advisable to go with approach 1. Post the non conforming stock in to Block stock and post return delivery through MIGO when the vehicle is ready.
Depending upon the business need the appropriate approach should be chosen.
