SAP EWM Perform plant to plant transfer of stock within the same Warehouse

Dear Experts,

Our requirement is to transfer the stock which is supposed to be scrapped to another plant and storage location combination so that the valuation of the scrapped stock can be made to zero. As the stock has to be managed in the warehouse, both the plants are assigned to the same warehouse.

We have created a storage type(SCRA) which will store the stock to be scrapped. We want the automatic transfer posting to happen and hence based on the concept of the availability group, we have done the following:

Created a new availability group: SC1

Assigned this availability group to the new plant (PL01) and storage location(SL01) combination along with EWM warehouse and ECCs logical system:

PL01 – SL01 – SC1

Now this availability group is assigned to the newly created EWM stock type(S8) and Non location dependent stock type (BB):

SC1 -  S8 – BB

Assigned the availability group to the storage type : SC1 – SCRA

As per the set up, my expectation is that when the stock is moved to this storage type using the WPT 9999, the system should trigger a posting change to a different plant and storage location based on the availability group mentioned in the storage type which is in turn connected to the Plant PL01 and Storage location SL01.

However, while confirming the WT that got created, I am getting this error message:

Could not determine subsequent stock type to F2

Message No. /SCWM/WM_SEL079

What could I be missing here?

I have tried changing the non location stock type assignment to availability group & stock type from BB to FF without any help.

Hello Juergen,

It does work for the scenario where you want the system to automatically transfer goods from one sloc to another based on the availability group assigned to the storage type.

The issue is with the Pl to Pl transfer. SAP suggests that it cannot be done. So Plant to Plant transfer has to be done first using the /SCWM/POST and then it can be sent to a storage type.

Has anyone come across the scenario where Pl to Pl transfer requirement was mapped via Storage type to storage type transfer?
