    there exixts two types of stocks.Normal stocks and special stocks.

    Special stocks:

    Special stocks are stocks that are managed separately as a result of their not belonging to your company or being stored at a particular location

    Special stocks and special procurement types are divided into the following areas:

     

    · Consignment

     

    · Subcontracting

     

    · Stock transfer using stock transport order

     

    · Third-party processing

     

    · Returnable transport packaging

     

    · Pipeline handling

     

    · Sales order stock

     

    · Project stock

     

     

    Stocks belonging to your company that are stored with the vendor or the customer.

     

    In the SAP System the following types of special stocks are available:

     

    ·        Stock of material provided to vendor

     

    ·        Consignment stock at customer

     

    ·        Returnable packaging stock at customer

     

    Since these special stocks are not located at your own company, they are managed at plant level and not at storage location level.

     

    Two stock types are possible:

     

    ·        Unrestricted-use stock

     

    ·        Quality inspection stock

     

    All stock types can be inventoried.

     

    Purpose

    Stock of Material Provided to Vendor

    These are your company's own stocks that you provide to the vendor (subcontractor) to manufacture a product you have ordered. However, this stock is still your company's property. This stock is available for Materials Planning.

     

    The goods movements for materials provided to vendor are described in Subcontracting.

     

    Consignment Stock at Customer

    This is consignment material belonging to your company that is stored with the customer. This stock is not available for materials planning.

     

    In Inventory Management, you can post the following goods movements (with reversal):

     

    ·        Initial entry of stock balances (movement types 561, 563)

     

    ·        Transfer posting from plant to plant in one step (301)

     

    ·        Transfer posting material to material (309; see also Entering Transfer Posting Material to Materials)

     

    Other goods movements are processed using the Sales (SD-SLS) component. See also: Consignment.

     

    Returnable Packaging Stock at Customer

    This is packaging materials or means of transport (for example, pallets or crates) which are supplied by your company to a customer and must be returned. Returnable packaging stock is not available for Materials Planning.

     

    In Inventory Management, you can post the following goods movements (with reversal):

     

    ·        Initial entry of stock balances (movement types 561, 563)

     

    ·        Transfer posting from plant to plant in one step (301)

     

    ·        Transfer posting material to material (309; see also Entering Transfer Posting Material to Materials)

     

    Other goods movements are processed using the Sales (SD-SLS) component. See also: Returnable Packaging Stock

    Externally-Owned Special Stocks  

    Definition

    Externally-owned special stocks belonging to a vendor or customer that are stored at your company.

     

    In the ERP System, the following types of externally-owned special stocks exist:

     

    ·        Vendor consignment

     

    ·        Returnable transport packaging

     

    ·        Sales order stock

     

    ·        Project stock

     

    Since these special stocks are located at your company, they are managed at storage location level.

     

    These special stocks can be allocated to three different stock types:

     

    ·        Unrestricted-use stock

     

    ·        Quality inspection stock

     

    ·        Blocked stock

     

    All stock types can be inventoried.
