Move Goods Between Plants With Two Steps
This type of goods transfer can only be carried out in Inventory Management. Neither Shipping in the issuing plant nor Purchasing in the receiving plant is involved in the process.
The goods transfer includes the following processes:
A goods issue in the issuing plant
A goods receipt in the receiving plant
Transferring goods in two steps has the following characteristics:
The transfer posting cannot be planned by creating a reservation.
The quantity posted from goods is first of all managed as stock in transfer in the receiving plant. Only once the goods receipt has been posted is the quantity posted to the unrestricted-use goods of the receiving plant.
This enables the quantity “on the road” to be monitored.
