QA32 UD for Handling Units results in a transfer posting delivery?

In our environment we have Handling Units, Serial Numbers and QM. In the mateial master the QM inspection types are set to inspecting by HU. The inspection lot gets created correctly and it references all the HUs. When we perform a usage decision and transfer the HUs to unrestricted stock in QA32. The system creates a transfer posting delivery that I then have to go and pick the HUs onto and then PGR the transfer posting delivery. It seems to me that because QA32 is working with the HUs it should direclty post the stock to unrestricted. I don't understand why I need this Transfer Posting Delivery.

Can anyone confirm that, yes indeed this is standard SAP behavior and we have to live with it or Am I missing something and no the system can directly post an HU with serial numbers form 'Q' stock to unrestricted via QA32.

Thanks for your help,

Steve

    Hi,

    The Standard SAP process is as follows,

    1. GR --> Inbound Delivery created and stock is in 902Q

    2. QM processes

    3. Take Usgae Decision --> Transfer Posting Delivery Created

    4. Create TO and confirm TO with reference to step 3 Delviery (Sotck moved from 902Q to 922Q then 922 without Q to 902 without Q(Unrestrcited use)) (This TO Creation and confirmation can be automated)

    5. Now create TO and confirm TO with reference to Step 1 Delivery (Stock moved from 902 without Q (unrestriced)) to the permanent storage (unrestricted use stock).

    I hope this will help you.

    Regards,

    K.Annadurai.

    Dear Steve,

    What you describe is indeed standard system behaviour: Whenever you post a goods movement that involves a Handling Unit-managed storage location (like in your case), the system creates a transfer posting delivery - unless you use specific HU- transactions (like HUMO, COWBHUWA, VLMOVE). As there is no such specific transaction for usage decision purposes, you will have to live with these deliveries.

    Best regards,

    Christiane
