Management of the stock in consignment as well as other spare parts will be entered...
Explanation: will be entered in the purchase
"Gestion" means what they are going to do with the stuff/stock, how they are going to manage it.
"Stock de consignacion" means that the equipment/stock is going to be given to a person that then is responsible for selling the stuff, and when he/she sells it, the seller gives back some money off the purchase price to the guy that provided the equipment, or "stock". Here stock has nothing to do with shares of a company!!!! it is talking about bulk equipment and spare parts.

Consignment stock is merchandise which is stored at the customer location but which is owned by your company. The customer is not obliged to pay for the merchandise until they remove it from consignment stock. The customer can usually return consignment stock which is unused.
Since consignment stock still forms part of your valuated stock, you must manage this stock in your system. However, consignment stock must be:
Managed separately from the rest of your stock so that you are aware of the stock which is stored at the customer location
Managed separately for each customer
From SAP Retail’s point of view, the issuing of consignment stock is treated as a special kind of sales order, using special sales order types.
