A withdrawal from the pipeline is posted as follows:
Maintain the data on the initial screen. Choose Movement type
To cost center (or To order, To network, All account assignments)
From pipeline (Movement types : 201 P, 261 P, 281 P, or 291 P)
On the collective entry screen, enter the account assignment. Enter the items.
- From the Inventory Management menu, choose Goods movement
You do not have to enter the vendor as this will be found automatically by the system.
If more than one vendor is possible, a pop-up window appears with a list of pipeline vendors, from which you can select the vendor you require. Post the goods movement.
A withdrawal from the pipeline results in the following updates in the system:
- The pipeline withdrawal results in a vendor liability that must be settled periodically in a similar way to the management of consignment stocks.
- A consumption history is kept.
The pipeline withdrawal has no effect on existing warehouse stock or on the availability of the material.
