SD-how to process material packing before sales order entry?


If materials are packed before sales order is created, like:

materia A, 10 batches was put in one bag,

how to model it in R/3? Handling Unit Management can still be used?

Best regards,

    I don't think I understand your scenario.

    Normally the Sales Order is created which then commits the materials to the order.

    I suppose you maybe able to adapt either the "inquiry or quotation stage" of the Supply Chain to commit the stock at this level, then move to sales order stage.

    I am not sure if this would effect or if you would have to change the Inventory Management part of MM though.

      we considered to use sales unit, but actually it is not fit for the business scenario.Because we will give every bag a number, this is somelike handling unit number in SAP. But this number is given out before sales order entry. So HUM cann't be used.
