Inter company Stock Transport Order Processing

Companies with plants in multiple locations typically have the requirement to transfer stock between plants. The STO (stock transport order) process is used to handle this transfer systematically in SAP. 
However if these plants belong to different Company Codes then we need to use the Intercompany STO process. This requires several configuration steps and prerequisites to be in place for this solution to work and entities can benefit from the ability to monitor stock in transit, traceability through document flow and ability to account for delivery costs on the stock transport order.
In this document we will discuss the prerequisites and configuration that needs to be in place to achieve the Inter company Stock Transport Order process in SAP.

Use of Partner Bank Type in Vendor Master

Most of the organizations share the vendor master data across multiple company codes. Vendors may provide different bank accounts based on the resident country, currency or any other business specific criteria.
SAP vendor master holds the bank information in the general data segment. I.e It is available across all company codes. Therefore often times it becomes a requirement to provide a solution to make payments to different vendor bank accounts based on business specific requirements.
SAP has provided the Partner Bank Type field in the vendor master as the driver for this solution.

Rush Stock Transport Orders in FMS (Immediate Delivery Creation at STO Save)

Most of us are familiar with “Rush sales order processing” in SAP. This is to create a delivery document as soon as a sales order is saved in SAP. If you’re working in SAP IS-AFS (Industry Solution – Apparel and Footwear) or SAP FMS (Fashion Management Solution) system, the allocation process (Commonly known as ARun) should take place in background automatically. (In FMS, “ARun” will execute in background only in case if the Site / Article is setup as “ARun” relevant).
We have similar setup for stock transport orders (STO), where we can automatically create a delivery document in the supplying site (plant), when stock transport order is saved in SAP. This process also known as immediate delivery creation at stock transport orders or Rush STO. Similar to above rush sales order scenario, Allocation / ARun needs to be executed in background in SAP IS-AFS or SAP FMS for rush STO’s.

There are business requirements where you need to process multiple IDOC message types in a serialized manner using PI immediately without a scheduled batch job. i.e. Customer master with address master (DEBMAS with ADRMAS) Vendor master with address master (CREMAS with ADRMAS) Info record master with vendor master & material master (INFREC with MATMAS and CREMAS) In order to process these IDOC’s successfully, you must process then in a sequence.
