Checking the Stock

When using Consignment Collaboration, the location of stock is important. Stock can be located in consignment stock or in the Buyer's own stock (called unrestricted stock). To examine the stock, we use SAP Fiori app Display Stock Overview or SAP transaction code MMBE.

This feature enables you to see the stock amount at different stages in the process:

  • Before the Consignment Purchase Order is created
  • After the Goods Receipt is sent in response to receiving the consignment stock
  • After the stock withdrawal and transfer posting

Specify Criteria for the Stock to Display

Use SAP Fiori app Display Stock Overview or transaction code MMBE to display the Stock Overview: Company Code/Plant/Storage Location/Batch screen. On this screen enter the values to filter the material for which you want to view the stock values. In this example we are looking for material B520-300 in Plant 1710.

View the Stock

The stock is organized by Company Code, Plant, and Storage Location. You can see in this example that the quantity of material B520-300 in the Buyer's own stock is 1,670. The quantity of material B520-300 in consignment stock is 160.
