    Is the stock type in the delivery ok?

    Are you using fix bin assignment for stock determination or some more "complex" logic? Maybe start with something simple like fixed bin assignment so that you know that it works and eliminate other sources of error.

    • Hi,

      I think you have one basic issue, which is NOT the creation of the item.

      "We are using 2 Packaging Items for packing an HU.

      At Lvl1 we use a Basket Packaging Mtrl

      At Lvl2 we use a Pallet Packaging Mtrl at this we use HU Creation."

      That means you find a packaging specification during the WO creation with the packaging profile?

      Are you sure that the first packaging material is considered at all? What do you see when you confirm the WO? I would guess that you only see the Lvl2 pack material at this point, because the pick HU creation does not consider the first level.
