Consumption of packing materials


Our client wants Packing Materials to be part of the BOM. At the time of Backflush it will get consumed. They use a seperate system for Picking and once picking is completed, Idoc is sent from this system which updates the Handling units in SAP delivery.

Now my question is that once we do PGI (movement type 601) then packing material will be consumed once again. How we can avoid double consumption of packing materials in such case. Is there any config setting available in delivery item category which controls this.

    I'm pretty sure you cannot have it both ways. Either it's part of BOM or it's HU. Pick one or the other. If you could share the actual business requirement ("client wants" does not qualify, I'm afraid) then maybe a better solution could be suggested.

    If HU works in this scenario I don't really get why it has to be in BOM and why it has to be backflushed. Since you have an interface then using HUs seems like a good option too.
