Questions and Answers
 Outbound Inventory Process
 Question 1: Customer owned Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) agreement orders (Agreement type V) do not update inventory into Outbound Branch/Plant locations in Item Availability (P41202) after inventory is released from supplying branch. Is it standard functionality?
 Question 2: Ship confirmation (P4205) relieves inventory from supply branch. But why is F42I02 not been updated and so the inventory is not moved into Outbound branch ?
 Question 3: When setting up Outbound Inventory Management, can we revise existing branch plants to indicated Outbound Inventory Management?
 Question 4:  Can we create an agreement at the parent level? We have multiple customer records that all have the same parent customer address book number.
 Question 5: Is there a way to have a customer log in and only see their VMI inventory?
 Question 6: Is there a way to adjust the customer's inventory for damaged good or for other adjusts?
 Question 7: After acknowledgement, I've been trying to "report consumption" using P42I03 and it doesn't do anything.

 Question 11: How can all the quantity and transaction information be moved from the old agreement to the new agreement?
 Question 12: Where can we find the Outbound Inventory Management Item Ledger similar to the Cardex (F4111)?
 Question 13: When creating a direct ship order I receive a Blanks Invalid and Address Number - Invalid error. Where does the system pull the supplier from?
 Question 14: When installing ESUs including Outbound Inventory Management objects and table generations and table conversions, why are we instructed to run R8942I02/F40051(Return Material Authorization) and R8942I03/F470371(EDI Shipping Notice Detail - Outbound)?
 Question 15: When using batch PO receipt program, is the product moved to the outbound location?
 Question 16: When reviewing orders in  Acknowledge Outbound Order, our orders are showing as Acknowledged in the Acknowledge Status area.  Why are the orders not showing as Pending?
 Question 17: When Reporting Consumption P42i03 can one billing sales order be generated for all information reported?
 Question 18: If run inventory transfer P4113 on OI inventory, the P42i04 Outbound Inv availability does not reflect the update in inventory.
 Question 19: Can Report Consumption P42i03 be run in a batch mode?
 Outbound Inventory Agreements
 Question 1: Can you update the agreement to have new outbound inventory BP? Currently the field is protected.
 Question 2: Can an update to the agreement detail be done for a new BP? If it can update, will it show in the P42i04 OI availability? If so, how?
