SAP WM-RF 'Serial Number' Transaction LM80 - How does it work?

Hi gurus

We are looking at using the standard SAP RF transaction 'LM80' - 'Serial number capture'

Does anyone have any experience with this transaction? How does it work and what is the process flow?

    Please advise if this is the process others are using for LM80:

    1. Create STO or Sales Order

    2. Create Delivery

    3. Create Warehouse Transfer Order

    4. Pick/Confirm Warehouse Transfer Order

    5. Scan serial numbers to completely picked delivery via LM80

    6. Post Goods Issue

    My question is: is there a way to 'pick' via serial numbers? The process would then be that you scan in serial numbers during picking

    kind regards

      Thanks James

      Yes, this appears to be the only way. I am quite surprised that LM80 works that way a 'standard' - it does not appear to serve any real function as you are attaching the serial numbers to the delivery after the fact of picking. There is also the tricky issue of if a material has mandatory serial number assignment - you won't even be able to use LM80 in this case as the serial will be assigned during picking .

      Hopefully SAP will develop this transaction further
