RE:[sap-log-mm] How to Handle Stock Transport Order as Make to Order

Hello Stathis;

If you are running MRP in the manufacturing plants, STO demands from the distribution center plant will be evaluated and planned orders created to satisfy them. It will still be necessary to convert these to production orders though. As far as I know, there is no equivalent STO configuration that behaves like the MTO process driven by sales orders and linked production orders.

If you need to segregate groups of demands in a manufacturing plant, and/or segregate inventory for specific demands. MRP Areas may provide the functionality you are looking for.

If you have an ABAP programmer available, you can also look at the option of automatically creating the production orders in a batch process, based on the new STO's created that day.

Hope this helps,

Subject: How to Handle Stock Transport Order as Make to Order

Dear all,

In the business scenario I am trying to implement, I have some plants
(distribution centers) which are replenished from the manufacturing plant
through the process of Stock Tranport Orders (purchase order type UB).

However, whenever I create a STO I would like SAP to trigger a Make to
Order requirement in the manufacturing plant like if it was customer sales
order. Imagine that from business perspective the distribution centers
plants are the "customers" of the manufacturing plant therefore their
relative STO should be handled as MTO.

Thank you in advance,

Kind Regards
Stathis Papadopoulos
