Inventory Management :

Simply explanation : Managing the stock of material on qty and value basis is known as Inventory

Whether Inventory is required or not for the material is controlled at material type and valuation area
(plant) level.

In OMS2, Configuration required for each material type qty and value updating at valuation area level.

Case 1: If both Qty and Value update indicators are selected then PO can be raise for stock purpose
and at GR material can be placed in store on qty basis and this Qty means stock value will be updated
in inventory or stock G/L account.

Case 2 : If qty update selected and value update not selected for material type at valuation area level,
These material type related materials must procure for consumption Purpose. Means you should select
account assignment category in PR and PO. At GR, received material is placed in store on qty basis but
material value will be booked in relevant consumption G/L account but not in stock or inventory g/l

Inventory Management scenario’s can be defined as 1) Goods Receipt 2) Goods Issue 3) Stock
Transfer 4)Transfer Posting

Characteristics of Goods Movements :

1) At least one material document will be generated and if goods movement is relevant to FI then
accounting document to be generate.

2) Stock and Stock Value and Consumption Value may increase or decrease based on the goods

3) If GR is entered against PO then PO history to be updated in Display PO.

4) Total value and Total stock, Moving average price to be updated (may be increase or decrease) in
Material Master.

5) If Quality Management views are maintained with required fields, then when you completed the GR or
GI, inspection lot to be generated when you run in QA32 , Based on Usage decision stock to be
accepted or Rejected.

Sample process for Goods Receipt, Goods Issue, Stock Transfer, Transfer Posting.

Goods Receipts : 1) GR w.r.t Po for raw material

2) GR w.r.t Production order for finished Product.

3) GR With out for Production order

4) GR with out Purchase Order.

I explained simply in one diagram, it is use full to remember the Process. Below I explained step by

1st Part :

Chart of account includes G/L accounts. This chart of account to be assigned to one company code or
multiple company codes.

https://blogs.sap.com/2013/11/21/automatic-account-determination/ 4/22
05/11/2017 Automatic Account Determination | SAP Blogs

Note : Similar account determination required plants are grouped together and assigned to a valuation
grouping code and then account determination will be configured at valuation grouping code level.

Step 1 : Define Valuation Control (OMWM)

Here need to activate valuation grouping code.

For account determination, you can group together valuation area by activating the valuation grouping

Step 2 : Group together valuation area.(OMWD)

here you assigned the valuation grouping code with combination of company code and chart of account
and valuation area (plant) combination. If suppose similar account determination required plants are
grouped together , here you can assign same valuation grouping code to multiple plants (or) multiple
valuation areas.

2nd Part :

Material type and Account category reference and Valuation class.

Step 3 : Define Valuation Classes.(OMSK)

In this step, you define which valuation classes are allowed for a material type.

Bijay already explained about Account category reference (ACR) in below link


So I am not going to this detailed.. As account category reference is main controller and Mediator for
material type and valuation class.

https://blogs.sap.com/2013/11/21/automatic-account-determination/ 8/22
05/11/2017 Automatic Account Determination | SAP Blogs

There is no direct configuration between material type and valuation class. Account category elaborates
which material types related materials can be choose the which valuation classes.

You should enter this valuation class in material master.

3rd Part :

Step 4 :Define Account Grouping for Movement types (OMWN)

Note : It is not possible to define new valuation string and new transaction event keys but account
modifiers are editable with any movement type, for GBB or PRD or KON transaction keys are triggering then
only account modifier also triggers.

Based on movement type system is triggering a valuation string and this valuation string is again triggers
several transaction keys.. but few transaction keys again triggers account modifiers or account grouping
code also.

https://blogs.sap.com/2013/11/21/automatic-account-determination/ 10/22
05/11/2017 Automatic Account Determination | SAP Blogs

Below are the transaction event keys relevant account modifiers




Step 5 : Configure Automatic Postings (OBYC)

https://blogs.sap.com/2013/11/21/automatic-account-determination/ 12/22
05/11/2017 Automatic Account Determination | SAP Blogs

In this step, you enter the system settings for inventory management and invoice verification
transactions for automatic postings to G/L account.

For transaction key w.r.t to chart of account need to assign g/l account based on transactions with
combination valuation class, account modifier or valuation modifier
