Packing the materials into pallets for dispatching

As per the current WM configuration in the system, the materials are put away into bins and then picked from the bins to the staging area for dispatch.

In the staging area, the operator manually arranges the items to pallets. Multiple delivery documents can be stacked onto the same pallet. This is tracked manually.Then the pallets are transferred to the dispatch lane.This process is done manually and is not configured in SAP WM.

Now the customer wants to skip the staging area and wants the items to be directly packed to the pallets after being picked from bins and needs this to be configured in SAP.

Is this configuration feasible as the put away is done to the bins and not to the pallets.When the delivery needs to be dispatched, then only the items needs to be picked from bins and packed to the pallets for dispatch.

Please help.

    This scenario means the packing of materials to the pallets or containers or boxes from the non SU managed/non HU managed storage types after picking is completed.

    Is is scenario feasible to be configured in SAP WM?

    There is concept called Generating packaging items in delivery in WM+HU managed location.

    In this case what happens, after delivery order is created, you conduct picking from storage bins and after picking order is confirmed, the packaging material is referenced in outbound delivery automatically. The FG material is packed in pallets and handling unit number is generated. So process is Picking and then packing.

    Please read my blog where i have explained this business scenario

    Why not packing in the delivery or even in the transport instead of WM?

    • Thanks for your reply Jurgen..

      Yes, we are looking for the various feasible options and not able to finalize anything yet.

      As per primary analysis , it seems that we need to implement handling unit management for the same. i.e. packing in the delivery or the shipment. But then , how to handle the picking TO confirmation I am not able to materialize.

      The requirement is to get everything to be done by RF. Also , after picking multiple deliveries can go into one pallet for dispatch.

      Please help.
