Generate delivery Items for packaging materials in a WM HU managed sloc

Dear Experts,

Need an advice. I need to generate packaging material as a delivery items in a WM HU managed storage location. I have gone through the below SAP KBAs.

2323180 - Delivery items for packaging materials of picking unit

831204 - Delivery items for packaging materials

Also gone through the below link

https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/ERPSCM/Generation+of+Delivery+Items+for+Packaging+Materials

My requirement is that when I create delivery, the packaging materials should be consumed at time of PGI.

I tried and tested the above scenario, it works fine in HU managed location when I pack the delivery in a Handling unit, the packaging materials becomes relevant for delivery. However, in a HU WM managed sloc, I need to conduct picking first with LT03 and latter pack the required HU during TO confirmation, but still I am not getting the packaging material relevant for delivery.

I am doing below process.

1) Sales order----> Outbound delivery---->PickingLT03-----> TO confirmation LT12.

I am following the highlighted route to derive this but still its failing in HU WM Sloc.

Appreciate your reply.

Best Regards

    Hi,

    ok, I just tried, worked fine for me. I created a pick-HU in the transfer order, after the confirmation in my delivery I can see the packing and I have an item. And the storage location is HU managed.

    "When you try to pack the delivery in HU+WM managed location, a pop up message is displayed.SAP says we need to conduct picking to pack the relevant delivery items in delivery during picking TO creation."

    Yes. that's the way it works.

    That you can manually add the item, does not mean that it also works automatically. Because when you manually create the item, there is no "usage".

    • Hi,

      "The parent material has same ZGCS as Item category" It is not about the item category group of the material you sell, but about the item category group of the packaging material.

      The line with the usage CHSP has no relevance (that is batch split).

    Hi,

    well, I don't know if the guys who wrote these notes ever tried this, but this flag "Generation of Delivery Items for HU Packaging Material" at the delivery type has NEVER done anything for me.

    The only important thing I ever found was the correct "usage" in the setting "Define Item Category Determination in Deliveries", that must be PACK. OK, and the item category and the plant determination have to be check, but without proper usage, I never got an item created.

    Hello Juergen,

    Is this possible in Handling unit managed Warehouse ? My picking location is WM HU managed.

    Best regards

    Hi,

    I don't think that it makes any difference, but I have very little experience with HUM storage locations.

    Hello Juergen,

    Tested many many times. But not successful in WM HU managed location. But i will try testing till I achieve or I would report to SAP how they have released this note that Picking unit items will be relevant to delivery.

    Below is my testing observation done whole day today

    When you try to pack the delivery in HU+WM managed location, a pop up message is displayed.SAP says we need to conduct picking to pack the relevant delivery items in delivery during picking TO creation. In this case, the quantity is picked from Source Storage unit, well we can manually pick the required Storage type, Bin number and Batch from LT03 creation screen. System automatically picks the required storage Unit from a storage bin based on picking strategy.

    My configuration of Item category is correct as manually I can assign the delivery item category in delivery. You can see that no error message is triggered that configuration VOV4 entry is missing.

    I did LT12 but still items were not packed into Delivery. I not sure how SAP has released the note 2323180 - Delivery items for packaging materials of picking unit. This functionality is working for HU managed location. But WM HU, I am still unsuccessful.

    I will let you know results tomorrow if I succeed.

    Best regards

    Hello Juergen,

    Many Many thanks. It worked. For last 3 days, I was sleepless:) sometime our error is not visible by our own eye, it needs to be checked by experts eye.

    But SAP KBA needs some correction. :)

    Whats most important is Plant determination. If Plant is entered manually is set, it doesn't give the desired results. Packaging item will be generated in delivery only after Plant determined from the first items was packed is selected.

    Also Generate delivery items have more use in SAP transport management system when we put delivery HU into a Shipment HU via VT01N, then it comes into picture. Or if we using HU in transportation as returnable packaging. I found one below SAP KBA which talks about this,

    593972 - HU in transportation as returnable packaging, empties

    The shipment document types and the activity profile talks of Generation of Delivery Items in Transportation handling unit

    Anyways thanks a lot for your time. I need to write a blog on this scenario now:)

    Best regards
