Working With Sales Order Stock
Sales order stock is inventory that results from a make-to-production sales order. Products are made or assembled in response to the customer’s order. The resulting stock is assigned specifically to the customer’s sales order and becomes part of sales order stock. The stock components can only be used for the production of the make-to-order items ordered by the customer.Finished products can only be delivered to the customer by means of the assigned sales orders.
If sales order stock has already been assigned to a quotation, the stock of the resulting orders is also managed under the quotation number.
Sales order stock is not valuated but is instead subject to cost collection.
Special Stock Data
In order to manage sales order stock of a material for different sales orders, special stock data is required in the material master record. Special stock data for a material is managed at the storage location level. If the material must be managed in batches, special stock data must be created for each batch.
The system automatically creates special stock data during the first inward movement of sales order stock. The data cannot be maintained manually but instead is automatically updated with every goods movement (or taking of physical inventory).
