Stock that is used for a sales order. It is directly allocated to a sales order. Components can only be used to produce material ordered by the customer and the finished product can only be delivered to the customer via the sales order.

You can manage valuated or non-valuated sales order stock.

If the sales order stock is not valuated, it is managed via a cost collector. The system does not carry out invoice verification postings for goods movements, and you cannot obtain an overview of how the stock is valuated until the end of the settlement period in Controlling.

If the sales order stock is valuated, you have immediate access to its value in Financial Accounting. The assigned accounts are debited and credited as a result of the valuated goods movements. From the viewpoint of MRP, the sales order stock is available for the sales order only.


The transactions for sales order stock are described in the Sales (SD-SLS) component in the sections Structure link Make-to-Order Production and Structure link Individual Purchase Orders.

You can only enter a return from the customer via a returns delivery in the component Sales (SD-SLS). The quantity is posted directly to the sales order stock and not to the blocked stock returns. Subsequent transfer to own stock using movement type 411 is possible.
