UOM in Sales order, Delivery order and billing

Dear Experts,

My customer has requirement as below example:

- Sales order: 2 PCs

- Outbound delivery: 1 CAR ( 1 CAR = 2 PCs)

- Billing: 2 PCs.

I have maintained Alternative UOM for CAR = 2 PC in material master.

I have defined the basic UOM is PC.

I have defined the Delivery unit is CAR in material master, view: Sales org 1.

1) It's not convert PC to CAR in Delivery Order. What do i miss?

2) If i change Delivery Unit manually to CAR in Outbound Delivery. When i create the Billing, the Billing unit is CAR. How can 1 control it?

    I don't think your requirement is possible without coding in user exits.

    You have a sales unit in the material master, this unit is applicable for the entire sales process, starting from sales order via delivery to the billing document.

    The delivery unit in the sales org 1 view has a totally different meaning as you can read in the F1 help of the quantity field in front of the unit field.

    If this extra unit is needed for internal purpose of picking then SAP has a solution with the WM unit, but only if you have the WM module in use.

    Still the unit in the delivery note would be the sales unit.

      There is not common packaging material for BOX. It's specific for each product. And they cannot manage many packaging material. Anyways, my question was answered. Thank you.

      We can continuous discuss if you have some advice for me for such kind of requirement.

    why you dont use handling unity to manage the quantity in delivery? Based on your message, I belive that handling untity could be an option to you handle different unity in delivery (especially in your case that 1 CAR is equal than 2 pieces -- in other words, are multiple values).

    And, you dont need WM to use handling unity (depends of your requirement you should activate the lean wm... but it is not mandatory). You can see your invetory based on HU quantity too.

    Please inform if it works.

      Thank you so much for your answer.

      By the way, it's a long story so that i cannot define the new Packaging Material (BOX). And same with my explanation for Jurgen, each product has specific box type, no common box size. Then, user must manage so many packaging material for Box in the system. If not, they must manually input when doing packing. They will not accept that.
