Determination of movement type in SAP STO outbound delivery

As we known that in the inter-company STO scenario, we often need to create outbound delivery so that the issue company can do picking and PGI for the outbound delivery.

In different STO scenario, the movement types of those outbound delivery are different. For example, the vendor consignment stock inter-company STO, the normal owned stock inter-company STO, one-step transfer inter-company STO, two step transfer inter-company STO, the movement types are different.

Then how SAP system can know which movement type should be used for those different scenarios? This blog will explain this.

1, First we can specify the delivery type for STO document.

For example, if the inter-company STO from NMI1 to NM03, for normal owned stock, the delivery type is NLCC, for vendor consignment stock, the delivery type is NK.

For the intra-company STO from NM1 to NM03, the delivery type will be NL.

2, We determine the item category used in outbound delivery, by the combination of delivery type/item category group/usage/Item category of higher-level item.

Item category group: it is maintained in article master data.

Item category usage: V, stands for purchase order.

ItemC: item category of higher-level item, normally it is empty.

Item category usage definition,

3, Then we can determine the corresponding schedule line category through the combination of item category and MRP type.

Through the following configuration,

Delivery item category NKN can be used in the delivery note of the inter-company STO for vendor consignment stock. Related schedule line category is K0.

Delivery item category NLC can be used in the delivery note of the inter-company STO for normal owned stock. Related schedule line category is NC.

Note that the schedule line category cannot be seen in the outbound delivery document of the inter company STO scenario. It will only appear in the sales order document.

4, At last, we can get the corresponding movement type according to schedule lines category (K0 or NC).

Through the following configuration,

It can be seen that for the inter company STO scenario of normal owned stock, under normal circumstances, the movement type of the delivery document when we post goods issue is 643. If it is a one-step stock transfer, the movement type is 645.

It can be seen that in the inter company STO scenario of vendor consignment stock, the movement type of the delivery document goods issue posting is 635 under normal circumstances. If it is a one-step stock transfer, its movement type is empty, that is, standard SAP does not support one-step stock transfer in this scenario.

Hope this blog can help you.
