HU items' material posting is inconsistent

Outbound delivery confirmations IDOCs are failing when the material has a stock determation rule and is assigned to a Handling Unit.

I reviewed SAP notes 550289, 605629, 952440.

The notes state HUM and Stock Determation are NOT comptabile. This is an issue as ALL deliveries which are PGId from High Jump contain materials which are packed in Handling Units.

Stock Determination rules are set up for vendor consignment.

IDOC Error Message:

HU items' material posting is inconsistent

Message no. HUGENERAL327


Handling unit MDED8 contains more than one item. The goods movement posts the items to storage locations with different HU-management strategies. The stock contained in one handling unit can be located either only in HU-managed storage locations or only in non-HU storage locations.


You have the following options:

Post all items to an HU-managed storage location

Post all items to a non-HU storage location

Repack the items in different handling units so that items that are to be posted to the same type of storage location are packed together.

In my case,

We are posting all items to non-HU storaage location. Why is it still failing? All HU items are being posted to the same storage location and in a NON HU storage location.

Logistics General >HUM >General >MM >IM-->HU Requirement for Storage Locations and Default Values for

When I check for our DWMS plants and their associated storage locations, the HU requirment is UNCHECKED for all storage locations for all plants.

Any ideas? Please explain why the issue still exists or how to over come this issue.

    I am having the same problem when I want to use stock determination and HUM in the delivery GI. The add-on solution that SAP wants to get paid does not apply to the US country yet. So I am not sure if SAP has solution available.

    My workaround is to user mvt 411K to move from consignment to own stock at the time of delivery picking out of warehouse. Then, proceed with normal packing and GI.

    Let me know if you have other better solution.
