With this document I explain the steps necessaries to manage the Consigment Stock and Returnable Packaging material by SHIP TO Partner.
The stock on loan to the customer as CONSIGMENT STOCK or RETURNABLE PACKAGING MATERIAL is managed by the function SB Special stock partner.
By default is managed by the SOLD TO.
With this customizing is posible to manage by SHIP TO.
1. Assign the Partner determination for WE/SH Ship to Party with SB Partner function.
SPRO–> Sales and Distribution –> Master Data –> Business Partner –> Customers –> Customer Hierarchy –> Set Partner determination for Hierarchy categories –> Set up partner determination for customer master.
a) Assign SB partner funtion to SH Partner procedure
With this customizing you assing to to partner funtion SHIP TO TO the function SB SPECIAL STOCK PARTNER
b) Assign Account groups with SB partner function
With this customizing you assing to Account groups for SHIP TO the partner function SB.
2. Update customer with SB partner function
3 Choose both functions in Sales order
In partner tab for the sales order you can see both partner functions.
Later with MB58 you can track the stock for consignment stock or Returnable material packaging for each SHIP TO instead SOLD TO.
I hope this information are useful for you.
