Annual Physical inventory at WM
Please confirm,if my understanding is right.
Once we have entered the count(LI11N) and than run LX17 to see variance, we find for example the reason for variance of a stocks in bins as to why the stock is showing more e.g. as not PGied to less as not received or some other reason than what do we do next:
We match the count by changing the figure in LI12N or make the diff less based on analysis and than CLEAR at WM and IM once Inventory over.
Once PI over and bins unblocked than carry out the movement in bins with difference analyzed to match the count as was changed in Li12n by PGI ing the excess quantity or receiving the less qty in bins than ground .
So in nutshell once we have analyzed the reason for diff, we match the ground and book qty in count so that we do not have NO DIFF and we do not to clear diff thru 711/712 and than later carry out the process to issue to receipt qty as this will add / remove the stocks if we do it after 711/712.
As per my understanding if we clear thru 712, stock may be added to bin and it may be that there are open stocks in 902 or any other reason thus after PI , once we analyze we may end putting more stock. same for 711, were the issues are pending and if we remove clear thru 711, than once PI is over we will again issue form that bin and stock will go further down.
So what is the step,:
See variance in LX17 , analyse and see if it can be matched from book and ground.If yes match the count in LI12N so that no clearing difference.
Once PI over , make necessary movement in SAP to actually match the book qty with physical count.
