You execute posting changes directly from the Warehouse Management system (WMS), without triggering the posting change in Inventory Management (MM-IM) first. The system executes the posting change automatically in Inventory Management, so that the material stock data is consistent in both systems.
You execute a posting change from unrestricted-use stock to blocked stock because the cardboard boxes are damaged; or you execute a posting change from consignment stock to your company’s own stock, in order to be able to use the material for production.
The system executes all of the activities necessary for the posting change in the WMS and MM-IM.
You have defined which posting changes should be triggered in the WMS and automatically in Inventory Management. You do this in the Customizing for Warehouse Management under Interfaces ® Inventory Management ®Define Posting Changes.
You trigger the posting change for the material in the WMS using the transaction Posting Change WM and IM. To do this, choose Logistics ® Logistics Execution ® Internal Whse Processes ® Posting Change ® Inventory Management ® Posing Change in WM and IM.
During this procedure, the system always executes the posting change in the WMS and in MM-IM simultaneously. If errors should occur in one of the two systems, the system does not execute the posting change.
You can implement this posting change procedure for the following posting change activities:
You can only trigger posting changes for QM-managed material from Inventory Management (MM-IM). Only then do you process the corresponding posting change notice in the WMS. The system processes the inspection lot in order to execute the change to the status of the material stock.
