New Scope Item Introduction – 41F(with Chinese translation)


This document will guide you to go through the process for procurement of pipeline materials. This aims at providing details in the definition of pipeline materials and why its purchasing flow is different from that of standard material types.


Relevant scope item 41F is available for S/4HANA Cloud 2002 and above.


1 Pipeline Material

A pipeline material is a material that enters the production process directly from a pipeline (for example, oil), from a pipe (for example, mains water), or via a cable (for example, electricity), and can be consumed. Pipeline materials are represented by the material type PIPE. These materials have the following business characteristics:

· They are not obtained or planned. The required quantity can be removed from the pipeline at any time.

· They are not stored and they are not managed in inventory management. No physical inventory is performed.

· You can only post withdrawals for this material using account assignment.

· Posting withdrawals creates liabilities to the vendor from whom the pipeline material is obtained. These liabilities are settled periodically.

2 Process flow for Pipeline Material

For procurement of pipeline materials, there is no Purchase Order, Goods Receipt or stock. We only need to record the consumption in MIGO and pay accordingly. The process flow is:

Step1Create Info Record

Step2: Record consumption

Step3: Pipeline Settlement

2.1 Create Info Record

1. Access the app Create Info Record.


2. An info record with Info Category “Pipeline” will be created. Enter the data in required fields and select Pipeline. Then press Enter.


3. Click on Purchasing Org. Data


4. Tax code and net price must be filled or there will be error in the settlement. Fill in the required data and choose Save.


2.2 Record Consumption

Due to the characteristic of pipeline material, we can consume or issue it even when it is not in Stock. And we record consumption in Post Goods Movement instead of creating a Purchase Order.

1. Go to app Post Goods Movement.


2. Goods Issue is used to record the consumption of pipeline material. The special stock type for pipeline consumption is ‘P’. For example, we can use 201P – Consumption for cost center from pipeline. Click on Post after enter material, quantity, plant, storage location, G/L account and cost center.


2.3 Pipeline Settlement

The settlement of pipeline withdrawal is same as consignment goods. We have two ways to perform this step:

Option 1: Create pipeline settlement

Option 2: Schedule supplier invoice jobs

You can choose option 1 if you just want to do a one-time job while option 2 is more suitable for creating settlement document periodically.

2.3.1 Create Pipeline Settlement

1. Enter app Create Logistics Consignment and Pipeline Settlement.


2. Fill in essential fields to locate your material document. Make sure the box for “Pipeline” is checked and Settle is selected in Processing section. Then click on “Execute”.


3. Then you can check if the information text for your document has been changed to “Settled”.


2.3.2 Create Pipeline Settlement

1. Go to app: Schedule Supplier Invoice Jobs.


2. Click on “+” to create a new job.


3. For job template, please select Logistics Consignment and Pipeline Settlement with the input helper. Then the start date & time for your job. Or your can check “Start Immediately”.


4. Fill in essential fields to locate your material document. Make sure the box for “Pipeline” is checked and Settle is selected in Processing section. Then click on “Schedule”.


5. Then you can check the status of your scheduled jobs from the Application Screen.


6. Check the results to see if your document has been settled after the job is finished.

1 管道物料

管道物料是从输油管道(例:石油)、管道(例:水)或电缆(例:电力)直接进入生产流程的物料,并可以被消耗。管道物料由物料类型 PIPE 表示。这些物料具有以下业务特性:

· 管道物料不可被获取或被规划。所需数量可随时从管道中移除。

· 管道物料未被存储,并且不在库存管理中进行管理。不执行库存盘点

· 只能使用科目分配对管道物料过账提货。

· 过账提货会在管道物料的供应商处创建负债。这些负债会被定期结算。

2 管道物料的处理流

管道物料的采购不存在采购订单、收货或库存。我们只需要记录 MIGO 中的消耗并相应地支付。其处理流如下:

步骤 1:创建信息记录

步骤 2: 记录消耗

步骤 3:管道结算

2.1 创建信息记录

1. 访问应用程序 创建采购信息记录


2. 创建一则信息类别为 管道 的信息记录。在必填字段中输入数据并选择 管道 。然后按回车键。


3. 点击 采购组织数据1


4. 必须填写税代码和净价,否则结算中会出现错误。填写所需的数据并选择 保存


2.2 记录消耗


1. 进入应用程序 过账货物移动


2. 发货用于记录管道物料的消耗。管道消耗的专门库存类型是 ‘P’。例如,我们可使用 201P – 成本中心的管道消耗。在输入物料、数量、工厂、存储地点、总账科目和成本中心后单击 过账


2.3 管道结算


选项 1:创建管道结算

选项 2:计划供应商发票作业

如果只需要执行一次性作业,可以选择选项 1;选项 2 更适合定期创建结算凭证的情况。

2.3.1 创建管道结算

1. 进入应用 创建物流寄售和管道结算


2. 填写基本字段查找您的物料凭证。确保选中 管道 框和 处理中 结算 框。然后单击 执行


3. 然后,您可以检查凭证的信息正文是否已变为 已结算


2.3.2 创建管道结算

1. 进入应用程序:计划供应商发票作业


2. 点击 create 创建新作业。


3. 在作业模板中,请使用输入帮助程序选择 物流寄售和管道结算然后选择您作业的启动日期和时间,或选中 立即开始
