Valuated Stock In Transit (SIT)

Introduction and Business Requirement:

Many a times Business Requires the owner ship of the Stock Transferred from one location to another location. This will be useful for their Current Assets valuations so that they will not lose the valuation of the stock which is in between rather in Transit of the Transfer from One Plant to Another Plant of the same company code or different codes or for the sales.

Standard SAP does not speak about the owner ship rather the Title deed of the stock which is in Transit during the STO (Intra and Intercompany) Processes or during the Sale when the stock is shipped to the Customer Location.

And hence SAP through its Business Functions, with the name LOG_MM_SIT has provided   and which when activated upon the above functionality will get activated and through standard configuration for the Process, system will post the valuation as per the valuation Title Deeds

Important Transaction code to check Stock:

 

MB5SIT

 

SAP Transaction Process

1.Create an STO at the Transaction Code ME21N with the Created document Type by the Receiving Plant

2.Create the delivery at VL10B / VL10G for the PO at the supply plant

3, Do the PGI at VL02N

4, Post the Goods Receipt for the PO at MIGO by the Receiving Plant

5.Do the Billing to the Delivery

5. Do the Invoice at MIRO

 

Results for a Scenario with Transfer of Title (Owner Ship ) at Receiving Plant 

As soon as the PGI is done to the delivery

  • Material is reduced from Unrestricted Stock and Issued to Valuated Stock in Transit in same Plant ( Supply Plant )  
  • During the Goods Receipt the actual Title will be Transferred and the SIT will get reduced and the Receiving Plant Inventory will be reduced .During this MB5SIT will say stock is delivered .
  • And the Accounting entries will be as per the Valuated Stock in Transit procedures .During the PGI the Finished goods account will be debited and SIT account is Credited .
  • During the GR , the SIT account will be cleared in the supply plant and the Cost of sales is Debited  and in the Receiving Plant Inventory will be Increased.
