Dear GURUs,

please suggest what settings has to be done so that the rounding of the packing material can be used for rounding of crates in sales order packing proposal

Thanks in advance

    Hope you have read the help of field "Rounding qtty" in packing instructions- POP1,

    If you want to pack a pallet with four boxes per layer, enter four as rounding quantity and specify in the packing status check profile that handling units that fall short of the rounding quantity are faulty. If there are not enough boxes to fill up a layer, the other boxes then remain unpacked.

    This means that the pallet remains stackable and easier to handle throughout the shipping process.

    Can you provide your requirement with an eg;- if possible, will give clear idea.

    Hi,

    Are u seen in POP1 or POP2,

    There is column as Rounding quantity under components tab

    Rounding qty

    Serves mainly for building layers.

    You can use the rounding quantity to ensure that a layer is completely filled, in order, for example, to prevent possible damage in transit.

    Use

    The system checks that the rounding quantity is respected when it determines the packing status. In your packing status check profile, you enter whether a handling unit can be created despite falling short of the rounding quantity or not.

    Examples

    If you want to pack a pallet with four boxes per layer, enter four as rounding quantity and specify in the packing status check profile that handling units that fall short of the rounding quantity are faulty. If there are not enough boxes to fill up a layer, the other boxes then remain unpacked.

    This means that the pallet remains stackable and easier to handle throughout the shipping process.
