Automatic HU assignment during TO creation

Hi

I have a requirement whereby I need to assign multiple HU's (max 6) to a transfer order whilst the TO is being created.

I have defined the control for automatic creation of pick HU's in the IMG, the allowed volume within the packaging material master and the volumes of the articles in the relevant article masters.

When I process the OBD via VL06O and create the TO's, only 1 HU is being assigned to the TO even though the total volumes of the articles to pick exceeds the allowed volume for the HU.

Does anyone know if this can be done ?

    Thanks Shailesh but the requirement is for the system to automatically create and assign 6 empty HU's to each TO during creation. WE do not want to manually create and assign :)

    Cheers

    Hi

    I will try and explain the requirement better.

    High Level Requirement - When picking, my clients requirement is for the users to pick items and place then directly into a sack (HU). When the pick is completed, the HU is sealed and dispatched.

    Lower Level - As the HU has a limited volume, if the total volume of the articles within a pick TO exceed the volume of a single HU, then multiple HU's should be automatically created and assigned at the point of TO creation.

    Example

    HU Max Volume = 50ccm

    TO No1 total volume = 45ccm so only 1 HU created and assigned during TO creation

    TO No2 total volume = 90ccm so 2 HUs created and assigned during TO creation

    Basically, I just need to system to perform a simple calculation whereby it divides the total TO volume by the HU volume and rounds up to the next whole number.

    Cheers

    Please try using nested HU creation by HU02 with automation packing functionality. Below link for your reference. I will try to replicate your scenario in my system tommoow and would let you my results.

    Hello,

    Can you please explain why you need to have automatic Picking Unit creation and assignment in TO? Are you conducting partial picking of HUs against obd? Well there is a badi Badi_HU_Autopack. In this you can assign several HUs to TO as standard SAP allows 1:1 HU TO assignment.

    Best regards

    Anyone know if there is a user exit or something I can use to meet this requirement ??
