Quantity of a material which is held in stock for the completion of a project. The project stock is allocated to a work breakdown structure (WBS) element. Components can only be withdrawn for the WBS element.
You can manage valuated or non-valuated project stock.
If the project 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 project 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.
Project stock is available for the project from an MRP point of view.
Creating Valuated Project Stock
If you want to work with valuated project stock, in the Accounting view of the material master record you can define your own valuation classes and thereby create your own stock accounts under Project stock valuation class.
Displaying Valuated Project Stock

The following movement types are defined for valuated and non-valuated project stock (in each case they can be reversed or canceled):
