Hierarchy Level item of ODO unexpected create after confirmed first HU WT

Dear All,

I would like to fix this issue any idea it would be appreciated.

I'm working on EWM 9.4, I created Outbound Delivery in ERP with only 1 item and distributed to EWM. In EWM came with 1 item like usual then i created 2 HU WTs (1WT/1WO) to fulfill this picking. It's just a normal picking processes. (VAS, Kitting, etc.. are not relevant)

But after I confirmed first HU WT, another ODO item is created with Hierarchy Level 1 and Picking Status of Header is completed even I haven't confirmed all HU WTs yet. I'm curious to find out. Please give me some advice,

Thanks and Best regards

    that the picking status is "Completed" is not nice, but in my opinion just a fuzzy status. AFAIK the status only knows "not started" (which is not true) or "completed" (which is not really true, but not that wrong...?).

    Regarding the sub-item: do you eventually work with stock specific unit of measures?

    Hi Sarinya,

    Hope the below information will help you.

    The system works as designed, if you have items with picking/GI/GR status 'not

    relevant' and 'completed', the aggregated header picking/GI/GR status displays
    The status distribution (DSP) must also be considered.

    But there is a new status introduced with notes 1274794 and 1486855

    status DPD - Picking and Distribution / DGD - Goods Issue and Distribution / DDD - Goods Receipt and Distrib.
    Activate this status in your status customizing (SPRO-> EWM ->
    Cross-Process Settings -> Delivery Processing->Status Management).
    You can use this status also for selection in the warehouse monitor.

    Please implement the following note as well: 1630953 (if not implemented yet).

    I try to give you detailled explanation based on the DGI status below
    (but this is the same also for status DGR):

    You display an outbound delivery order (PDO) in the /SCWM/PRDO
    transaction to monitor or select your documents which are completed with
    goods issue posting.
    The Goods Issue Status field of the header line is set to "Completed"
    however there is a remaining quantity for goods issue. The subitems for
    the partial quantity are posted goods issue. In the reality the goods
    issue is not finished phisically yet for the whole quantity.

    After splitting an item the Goods Issue status of the main item will be
    set to "Not relevant" and only the subitems will be considered. Since
    the subitem is posted goods issue the overall Goods Issue status on
    document header level will be set to "Completed" even if there is
    remaining quantity for picking and goods movement.

    In this case it is not enough to check only the goods issue status
    because it gives you information about the subitems, but you have to
    consider also the Distribution status, which reflects that the split is
    not yet completed. This is not an error, this is the correct system
    behaviour. To handle such situations new statuses were introduced with
    note 1486855.

    Now if you want to monitor the goods issue status then please check the
    Goods Issue and Distribution status on header level which takes into
    consideration the whole item quantity and item splits.

    It is very important that first you have to activate these
    statuses (or at least the DDD for the current
    issue) in the customizing. You can do it here:

    SPRO -> Extended Warehouse Management -> Cross-Process Settings ->
    Delivery Processing -> Status Management -> Define Status Profiles.
    Both on header and item level!!!

    Since these are not obligatory statuses they are set to inactive by
    default. You have to activate them manually in the corresponding profile
    (depending on the document category) before monitoring the status

    Hi Juergen,

    Thank you so much for you answer, yes, I'm working on SUoM and you right ODO Item it splits because i checked Update Delivery Item SUoM in ODO item. But I'm still curious about the fuzzy status which is still incorrect. By the way time is running out, I'm going with unchecked Update Delivery Item SUoM in ODO item.

    Other ideas it would be appreciated,

    Best regards,
