Serial number capturing in RF receiving EWM standard

Hi Guys,

we are setting up EWM 9.4 for a client using serialized products (serial number profile type 'C'). We have an inbound storage process in place which is having an unloading step before we do the putaway. So due to complex unloading the HUs will get one WT for the unloading step and one for putaway before they are finally stored and storage process is completed.

We have our custom RFs but wanted to check how the standard is capturing serial numbers during unloading. We cannot find any option during standard 'unloading' or 'receiving' RF transactions although at the end both transactions we will receive an error that 'quantity is not fully serialized' when trying to confirm the unloading WT.

So it looks like that standard would not allow to confirm an unloading WT for HUs with serialized products but on the other hand also would not provide an option to capture serial numbers during unloading process. Our observations from RF transaction customizing confirm this assumption - there are no steps available in standard to capture serials.

So does anybody have any idea how to implement an inbound process with complex unloading + serialized products (without entering serials manually in the delivery/HUs)?

Thanks in advance!

    Hi Hendrik,

    You may create serial number in background for complex unloading

    Please check Class-/SCWM/CL_SERIAL- to create serial no and assignment to Inbound delivery/task.

    Kind Regards,
