Business Scenario 1: Different Plant in same Company code

The customer is placing a Sale Order in the 7001 plant.

The manufacturing’s of the products are happening in different plants.(i.e Assembly of the product happening in the plant (7001) and Semi-finished products are produced in another plant(7002)).

The demand from 7001 plant should come to 7002 plant and need to produce them according to the requirement.

After manufacturing the semi-finished product, the products from 7002 plant stock will be shipped(Stock transport Order) to the assembly plant (7001) for the assembling process.
