Put quantity of auxiliary packaging dynamically into EWM Packspec

Dear Community,

we are using some plastic boxes as auxiliary packaging in EWM Packspecs.

Example:
100 PC of material xyz are packed on 1 pallet (Main HU) with 2 boxes (auxiliary packaging). Packspec is accordingly defined.

In case of lower packed materials quantity like 50 PC, there should only be used 1 box of the auxiliary packaging in the automated packed HU but not 2 (1 Box contains 50 PC).
However, we do not want to use nested HU's for such aux packaging.

Is there any way to dynamically calculate and update the number of auxiliary packaging items at the automated packing process?
Or maybe to define this already somehow dynamically in the packspec?

Even within EWM BADIS /SCWM/EX_HU_BASICS_* it seems you can't access and update the aux packaging items.

Many thanks for you help,
Markus

    Hi Markus,

    Are you using for Inbound or Outbound ?

    "Is there any way to dynamically calculate and update the number of auxiliary packaging items at the automated packing process?
    Or maybe to define this already somehow dynamically in the packspec?" -> As per knowledge I tried but did not work for me :(

    "Even within EWM BADIS /SCWM/EX_HU_BASICS_* it seems you can't access and update the aux packaging items." You will not get direct access for that , but you will have to use the methods to change the values.

    -> with Class /SCWM/IF_PACK_BAS in BADI autopack~hu_proposal? you can use methods to change the quantity or pack the auxiliary pack ? Please check the methods.

    -> CreateHU

    -> GET_HU_ITEM

    ->CHANGE_HUITM

    -> PACK_AUXMAT

    ->PACK_STOCK

    ....etc etc

    Please let us know if you have further queries.

    Kind Regards,

    Ajit

    Hello Markus,

    You need to use two levels for packaging specification. This is done through customizing.

    You need one level with HU creation and one level without. SAP already provided one level with HU creation, you can use that. Just create a new one.

    Follow this path:

    SPRO >> SCM Extended Warehouse Management >> Extended Warehouse Management >> Master Data >> Packaging Specification >> Maintain Structure of Packaging Specification >> Define Level Type.

    Assign this new level to your level set: ... >> Define Level Set

    Then create packaging spec like this:

    Your main level represents the first layer, use this to define how many PC you have in one box. HU creation must be unticked.

    Second level represents how many boxes you have in one pallet. HU creation must be ticked.

    If you see the amount of PC in second level in total quantity section, then well done, you have done it!

    Best regards

      Hi Serhan,

      this was my first idea, as well.
      Unfortunately, those aux packaging items are not generated inside the HU this way.
      Only 2nd Level with HU creation is used.
      However, thanks for helping!

      Bye,
      Markus
