EWM with SAP Retail Vendor Consignment Stock Transfer Order

Hi, We are now impletementing SAP retail and EWM.

In SAP, we have Distribution center and stores. (Distribution center and Stores are all plants under the same company code)

In EWM, we only link our warehouse to SAP Distribution center, not to the stores.

The business scenario is to procure and manage the materials as vendor consignment stock. One material will have only one source of supply.

We'll create vendor consignment PO in Distribution center, create stock transfer order to transfer the vendor consignment stock from Distribution center to stores, and also the store return STO to distribution center, return PO to vendor. All the inventoris in these scenarios are vendor consignment stock.

SAP Retail works fine with these scenarios. But with EWM, we met issues in stock transfer order scenario.

In stock transfer order scenario, the PGI of SAP Distribution Center outbound delivery is triggered via EWM. We got the post successfully with movement type "641" and special stock indicator "K" to issue vendor consignment stock to stock in transit. This is what we expected.

But there is an extra material document also posted with movement type "411" and special stock indicator "K" to transfer the vendor consignment stock to own stock. => This is unreasonable....

Another issue is about stock transfer order with return indicator. In EWM, the system could not determine the return delivery is going to poted to vendor consignment stock. The owner of the stock become own stock instead of vendor consignment after we post the GR and putaway into our distribution center in EWM. The EWM stock became own stock, and the post goods issue is not able to update to SAP Retail. There is an error in SAP qRFC Monitor Inbound Queue.

I'd like to know if anyone have been work with similar scenario and can give me some advise.

Thanks and best regards,

Julia Lin
