STOCK TRANSFER PROCESS
Friends, i need your Suggestion/Solution/Views for the below scenario in Stock Transfer,
Stock Transfer Process:
In Stock transfer, here we are treating the supplying plant as external vendor(Vendor Master) and raising an PO to the Vendor with our own value from receving plant. Based on the PO we are raising an sale order against supplying plant by treating the receiving plant as customer, Against the sale order we will do goods issue>>invoice. Once the material(carries Serial number) reach the receiving plant we do Goods receipt against the PO and give reference of delivery number in Delivery note field and invoice in bill of ladding field.
In this process we need to enter serial numbers manually or by selection. But, since our volume of transaction is huge through stock transfer so this process require more manual intervention and business users feels uncomfortable entering serial number manually.
Is Their any other option to avoid manual intervention in this area? i.e. except price everything should come automatically by giving outbound delivery reference as we will be doing for STO.
Note: Capturing the serial number from supplying plant is matching through the standard STO Process in SAP, but we couldn't able to raise PO with our own value, since the value was picking automatically from material master to receiving plant as a stock value, whereas it should pick up the Purchase Order value given manually by users as a stock value. To avoid this, we are trying to follow the Customer Vendor Process.
