    Hi,

    Scenario 1

    If the packing material is not required to be maintained as inventory and it comes back for reuse as packing material then use in the delivery order.

    Scenario 2

    If the packing material is required to be maintained as inventory and it comes back for reuse as packing mateiral then use in sales order.

    So it depends on clients business requirement.

    I have posted the same in my earlier posts.

    Those who wants to work on Returnable packing.configuration is given below.Follow the below steps

    Configuration:

    1- Packing Control by item cat

    2- Define Packing material type

    3- Define Material group for Packing Materials.

    4- Define Allowed Packaging Materials

    Master Data:

    1- Create Material Master data ( Mat Type:LEIH) ,

    In Sales General Plant data- tab/ Packaging Material data

    Maintain ,

    Material Group packing materials u2013

    Packaging Material type-

    Allowed packing weight or Volume

    & Save

    2- Create Material Master ( Mat Type:FERT)

    In Sales General Plant data- tab/ Packaging Material data

    Maintain ,

    Material Group packing materials u2013

    Process:

    Create SO-

    Create Delivery (wrt SO)

    • Edit u2013 Pack

    Enter the Packing material in u201Call existing HUu2019s or available for packing u201C u2013 upper section in the screen.

    Now, select line item ( from u201CPacked Materialu201D section or lower section of the screen, or the material which has to be packed in)

    Select the u201Cboxu201D- Pack

    Now FERT will be packed into LEIH. Press u2013 F3,

    You will observe that , packing material will be displayed as subitem/ 2nd line item.

    Do the picking & PGI.

    While Invoice creation, Packing material will not be copied into invoice,hence not billable as the stock is moving to customer site,s till the property of the Company.

    Observe the stock overview-MMBE

    FERT will be reduced from the main stock & LEIH will be still available, but in Ret packing stock.

    When receiving this ret packing stock:

    Create Ret.Packagin Pickup- VA01

    Order type: - AT

    Item cat group u2013 LEIH

    Item cat u2013 LAN

    Sch.line cat- F3.

    Mov type u2013 622

    Save the document & follow the same procedure with Returns Delivery u2013LR

    & do PGR

    Check stock overview-

    Ret.Packing stock will be transferred from Ret.Packing stock to Unrestricted stock.

    No billing will be issued to the customer, as stock will be coming back to the plant.

    To Pack one FG item, into 2 packing items.

    we need to assign material group for packing materials into same packing material type in COnfig.

    then maintain the same Packing material type in 2 Packing items Master data- Mat type:LEIH-sales general data tab.

    While Transaction:

    Select FG line item in VL01n. click on "Pack"-

    Packing screen will appear with 2 sections, in that lower section of the screen shows FG line item. upper section of the screen shows "Pack items"

    enter the parial qtty- (max allowed material) for FG line item & click on "per part qtty" , then select "YES"

    allowed packing materials will display , out of that choose the relevant packing material.

    partial qtty will be packed into the packing item.

    then "partial qtty" qtty will get updated with the remainig qtty (eg: total qtty-100, partial qtty entered: 60, after packiing into first pack item, then partial qtty field will get updated with qtty:40)

    now again choose FG line item & click on "per partial qtty" , choose YES,

    select the relevant 2nd pack item in which you want to pack this FG.

    then you will observe on screen , that one FG will packed into 2 Pack items.
