Create STO and OD for existing HUs

Is there a standard functionality to create STO (and OD for this STO, Shipment, ID etc.) based on the existing handling units (HUs) in MM location managed by WM? The same I will also need for OD w/o reference. Do you have experiences with this way of working? So HUs already exist before STO or OD creation, i.e. no packing functionality triggered during OD processing. Thanks!

    No such standard Functionality exist in system, you might need to look for custom.

    in couple of project we designed a dashboard where stock in storage type will appear on screen and user will select the line item and subsequent document (STO, Delivery, packing with the selected SU/ HU and PGI) gets performed in the backend automatically . However this requirement was more specific within a warehouse for a specific purpose without any physical movement. If you are planning to automare this for normal picking for customer or dispatch to outside then you need to take into consideration some operational issue (i.e. what if if the selected HU / SU is not available or not in a condition for dispatch during physical picking)

      Thanks Manish.

      I understand there is no standard functionality to create STO based on the selected existing HU/SUs, so this needs to be covered by ABAP development, that is, check the content of each HUs to be sent, create STO lines (materials / quantity and serial number in our case), then during the OD creation the packing will be done with the existing HU numbers and content.

      As far as I know there is a possibility to create Outbound delivery for HUs, i.e. VLMOVE transaction, this we can use for OD w/o reference.

      Anyway, thanks for your feedback. Regards.
