Sales Order processing is a Giant in itself and many different scenarios can be applied to it. One such scenario is Goods Exchange. There are many methods to achieve this however I found this method quite fascinating.
This method is actually a basic technique but many fail to remember so I thought I shall share it once again.
The Components of a Sales Order are:
- Document Type configuration
- Document type
- Item Category Group
- Higher level Item Category
- Item Usage
Schedule Line Category
- Item Category
- MRP type (If available)
Yes, Schedule Line Category is the main component responsible for this scenario.
The movement type shown here can be changed to (for example)
So lets imagine a real scenario:
For an order type “OR” you can use the actual material sales with the following:
Item category Group: NORM
Item category: TAN
and for the returns material (this can be referenced to the actual material while creating with a different item category group) with the following:
Item Category Group: LUMF (For example)
Item Category: Custom item category assigned against the document type, Item category group and Usage
Schedule Line Category: Custom Schedule Line category with the desired movement type.
And voila 🙂
You now have a single sale order for exchange of goods.
I hope you find this useful.
