You execute the following types of posting change recurrently in the Warehouse Management system (WMS).

Posting Changes to Stock Categories in the WMS

Type of Posting Change

What You Should Know

Release from quality inspection stock

For more information, see Releasing Material from Inspection Stock.

Processing blocked stock

The WMS flags blocked stock with the stock category S.

A posting change for blocked stock occurs in the same way as a posting change for quality inspection stock.

You can execute a posting change for blocked stock both in Inventory Management and in the WMS.

Posting change in quality inspection stock

You post unrestricted-use material in quality inspection stock if,for example, it has been damaged by water or fire.

You can execute a posting change for quality inspection stock both in Inventory Management and in the WMS.

If the material is managed in QM, the posting change only occurs in the Quality Management (QM) component.

Posting change from material number to material number

A posting change from material number to material number is necessary if, for example, a material changes with time, so that it no longer corresponds to the characteristics defined in the material master, but rather to another material number. For more information, see Structure linkStock Transfers and Transfer Postings of Batch Material.

On the basis of the posting change notice, the system creates a negative quant for the old material number and a positive quant for the new material number in the WMS.

Note

In the standard system, movement type 309 is predefined for posting changes from material to material.

Dividing batches amongst other batches

You trigger a posting change from material to material in MM-IM. In doing so, you do not change the material number. Instead, you enter a new batch number for the desired material quantity. For more information, see Structure linkStock Transfers and Transfer Postings of Batch Material.

Activities

You make changes to stock categories in the WMS by processing the posting change notice in the WMS. For more information, see Processing Posting Changes.
