  • Demonstrate the CM to CM Scenario

Create the Stock Transport Order

The first step is to create the Stock Transport Order. This is similar to creating a Purchase Order. We use ME21N but specify the order type as Stock Transp. Order. The fields we populate at the header include the Supplying Plant, Purchase Organization, Purchasing Group, and Company Code.

At the line level, we provide the Material, Quantity, Plant (which is the Receiving Plant), and the Issuing Storage Location. Both the Supplying and Receiving Plants are virtual plants. At the Item Detail level, we provide the appropriate confirmation control key value.

Create the Advance Ship Notice, Check the Outbound Delivery, Goods Issue, and Inbound Delivery

The Supplying Plant creates the Advance Ship Notice on the SAP Business Network.

The Outbound Delivery and the Goods Issue are Displayed

After the Advance Ship Notice has been created on the SAP Business Network, we see the Outbound Delivery (Tr./Ev. Delivery note) and the Goods Issue (Tr./Ev. Goods Issue) on the SAP System.

The Inbound Delivery is Displayed

On the Confirmation tab of the Stock Transport Order we see a reference to the Inbound Delivery (180005779).

Create the Advance Ship Notice and Check the Outbound and Inbound Delivery

Test your knowledge by using the following simulation to create the Advance Ship Notice and check the Outbound Delivery, the Goods Issue, and the Inbound Delivery.

Create the Component Receipt

Display the Advance Ship Notice

The Receiving Plant is able to see the Advance Ship Notice created by the Supplying Plant. They will use this to create the Component Receipt.

Create the Component Receipt

The Receiving Plant has received the stock so they will create a Component Receipt.

The Component Receipt sent by the Receiving Plant is received by the OEM in the SAP System as a Goods Receipt.
