Releasing Material from Inspection Stock - SAP WM

Purpose
After a material in the warehouse has been inspected, it should be released from inspection stock and made available for general use. There are two different scenarios.

  • The material has been moved from the interim storage area for goods receipts into the warehouse, that is, a transfer order has been created to transfer the quant to a storage bin.
  • For example, 100 pieces of material L3-001 (a quant) have been moved from the interim storage area for goods receipts to storage bin 01-03-32 in high rack storage. The quant, which can be identified by a goods receipt number, has the stock category of Q.

  • Some of the material has been moved from the interim storage area into the warehouse, that is, a transfer order has been created to transfer the quant to a storage bin. The rest of the material stays in the goods receipt interim storage area.
  • For example, 50 pieces of material L3-001 (a quant) have been moved from the interim storage area for goods receipt to storage bin 01-03-32 in high rack storage. The remaining 50 pieces stay on the interim storage area. Both quants, which can be identified by a goods receipt number, have the stock category of Q.

Process Flow
For the following example we discuss only the first scenario, that is releasing stock from inspection that is already in the warehouse.

Tasks in WM
Once stock has been released from inspection in Inventory Management, you create a transfer order in WM using a posting change notice as the basis for the transfer order. (For stock in which no QM components are active, it is also possible to release stock from inspection entirely within WM.)

Quants from various goods receipts can be differentiated from one another by a goods receipt number, which is stored in the quant.
  3. To save the transfer posting to the database, choose Transfer posting Post.

What Happens in the System?
When you post the release of the material in IM, the system takes the following actions:

  • A posting change notice is created in WM.
  • Two quantities are posted to the interim storage area for posting changes:
  • _ a negative quant with a stock category of Q
    _ a positive quant with a blank stock category
