Due to complexity of the work and practical difficulties, most of the stores (Sites) tend to finish / record their daily transactions in SAP after the business day closure. For example, let’s say there is an inbound STO from another store asking for 100 quantities from material ABC. In the SAP system; user can find 98 as available, but physically quantity 100 is available in the stock. In such a case, typical store manager would want to deliver 100 right away and do the stock adjustment for + 2 after the business day closure.
In this case (until the stock adjustment is posted); store inventory for material ABC needs to go negative. Standard SAP supports this functionality and today let’s see what we need to configure in SAP FMS for it. I will explain the configuration / process steps using below example.
Please feel free to post your suggestions, feedback and comments!
