No goods receipt for HU with materials that are serial number-managed

Hello everyone,

I have created an inbound delivery with 4 identical materials. These materials require a serial number. I always enter the serial numbers in the inbound delivery.

If I pack these materials on a HUs in the inbound delivery and send it to EWM, I can post the goods receipt without any problems.

However, if I use automatic packing in EWM for the same reason, it always issues these 2 error messages:

anzahlhu.png

Error message here: Number of serial numbers without HU assignment 4 greater than quantity not packed 0

2019-10-21-17-57-08-anlieferung-pflegen-lagernumme.png

Error message here: Quantity 4 not equal to number serial numbers 8

So why does EWM want 8 serial numbers instead of 4? Why are these numbers only assigned to the HU, when I pack the materials in the inbound delivery in ERP? Everytime I pack it with automatic packing in EWM the serial number assignment does not work or he wants more serial numbers than there is material to put away.

Thank you already in advance. Hope you guys can help me.

Sincerely,
Dennis

    Hi,

    "However, if I use automatic packing in EWM for the same reason".

    OK, just tested that, worked for me. But in your first screenshot with the error message, it looks like this is a nested HU, which is not what I tried. Which leads to the next question...

    "I found out that if I have a multi-level pack specification, the HU assignment doesn't work with serialized products."

    Yeah, how do you expect the system should do that? Just put any SN in one of the HUs? That would probably not give the result which you would expect. It did not for me either.

    And it is EWM. NOT eWM - Duh!

    • Hello Former Member ,

      of course it makes absolutely sense also to pack serialized material into nested HUs, the question is only how should the system do that automatically? Testing a sub-packing instruction is a good idea, but my assumption would be that it never works if the system has to create more then one HU. You can make a simple test: have a one level packspec, but receive a quantity which requires two HUs. What does happen then. I would thing that this is always a manual process.

    One Step further:

    Hi there,

    I found out that if I have a multi-level pack specification, the HU assignment doesn't work with serialized products.

    If the system does automatic packing in the inbound delivery with only one level, then I can post the goods issue without problems.

    What do I have to set in the packing specification so that it also works with multi-levels packaging?

    Hi Dennis Keidat,

    Could you please check the packaging Material Properties (Product Master) ?

    Kind Regards,

    Ajit

    Hi Juergen Pitz,

    okay I see your point. I thought that the serial numbers could be randomly transferred to the HU's, because as a user I don't care to which HU the serialized material was connected to. I never have the case that I have to assign a certain HU to a certain material. But okay - I understand your point. I'll still try a subpackage instruction - but I think I'll have to do it manually anyways :)

    Thank you very much for your response.

    Sincerely,

    Dennis
