Before you can order a material from a vendor or post a goods receipt to consignment stock, you must maintain the consignment price for the vendor in an info record. The price is required for material valuation and accounting purposes.
If you order consignment material from several vendors, the system maintains the consignment stock separately for each vendor, since the individual quantities of the material can have different prices with each vendor.
Creating Info Records for Consignment Stocks
To enable you to create an info record for a material, the material master record must already exist for the plant concerned. To create an info record, choose Master data ® Info record ® Create. Maintain the data as required and save the info record.
