 Use of Stock and Non-Stock Material


You use this function if skilled manual workers require material to execute maintenance work.

The following types of material exist:

  • Stock material is material that is available in stock and can be reserved by the system using a reservation.

  • Non-stock material is material that is not available in stock and therefore must be procured externally using a purchase requisition.


The order must be released for execution.


Withdrawal of Stock Material

The withdrawal of stock material can be planned or unplanned (refer to Withdrawing Stock Material ).

You can display goods movements and thereby see:

  • Whether there are goods receipts for the purchase orders for the order

  • Which planned goods issues for the order have taken place

  • Which unplanned goods issues for the order have taken place

Note Note

Which data in the list is displayed must be defined by your system administration in Customizing for Maintenance Orders by choosing Start of the navigation path Functions and Settings for Order Types Next navigation step Goods Movements End of the navigation path .

As soon as the settings have been made, you can generate lists for orders that already exist. To do this, use the report RIAUFM00.

End of the note.

Use of Non-Stock Material

If you plan non-stock material for an order, the system generates a purchase requisition for the purchase directly from the order. This triggers normal processing for procurement of non-stock material.

Note Note

You can define that the net price entered in the order and copied into the purchase requisition must be copied unchanged into the purchase order. To do this, you must set the indicator Copy net price from purch. req. into purch. order in your system for the required order type in the Customizing for Plant Maintenance.

End of the note.

Based on the purchase requisition, a purchase order is sent to a vendor. Upon delivery, the goods receipt is posted directly to the order for which the material was requested, that is, the order is immediately debited with the corresponding costs upon goods receipt. When the invoice is received, any changes to costs incurred are settled to the order.
