Picture Description

The flowchart delineates the SAP stock transfer process, a mechanism used to move inventory from one plant to another within the same company code, bypassing the need for master data beyond the material master. It encompasses the generation of a stock transfer requisition, creation of a stock transfer order, and the final goods receipt at the destination plant.

SAP Stock Transfer Process:

  • Need for Material ๐Ÿ›’: The process starts when there is a requirement to transfer material between plants.
  • Create Stock Transport Order Delivery (W/O MRP) ๐Ÿ“: If there’s an existing need without an MRP run, a stock transport order is directly created.
  • Forecast, Plan & Run MRP ๐Ÿ”„ (If Required): In case there’s no immediate need, MRP is planned and run to forecast material requirements.
  • Delivery ๐Ÿ“ฆ: The delivering plant creates a delivery document for the transfer of stock.
  • Pick List ๐Ÿ“ƒ: A pick list is generated from the delivery document, detailing the items to be picked from inventory.
  • Process Stock Transport Order ๐Ÿ”„: The buyer processes the stock transport order after verifying the requisition’s accuracy.
  • Check Stock โœ…: The warehouse clerk checks the stock against the pick list.
  • Process Delivery Due List for STO (Create Outbound Delivery) ๐Ÿ“‹: The delivery due list is processed to create an outbound delivery for the stock transfer.
  • Check Status of Stock Transfer ๐Ÿ”„: The status of the stock transfer is monitored to ensure the process is on track.
  • Picking Confirmation โœ…: The warehouse clerk confirms the quantities picked for transfer.
  • Post Goods Issue ๐Ÿšš: After picking confirmation, the goods are issued from the delivering plant, and the shipping documentation is prepared.
  • Inventory Transfer @ Standard Cost Gain/Loss Inventory Transfer ๐Ÿ’ฒ: The inventory is received and updated at the standard cost, recording any gains or losses during the transfer.
  • Delivery Note ๐Ÿ“: The delivery note details the specifics of the transfer and accompanies the goods.
  • Post Goods Receipt for Delivery โœ…: The final step at the receiving plant is posting the goods receipt, which concludes the process.
  • GR Slip ๐Ÿงพ: A goods receipt slip is generated, completing the receiving process.

This SAP Materials Management (MM) module process streamlines internal material movement, providing a controlled and documented transfer system that impacts inventory levels across plants without the need for external procurement processes.
