Pallets - BOM or as Handling Unit?


Hi all,

We are using a production process to make a finished product. These products are shipped on pallets.

My question is, how do we typically handle these pallets? Do we include them in the BOM in production or use them as Handling Units on the delivery?

If we include them on the BOM, then pallets are immediately consumed (as they are in real life). However using them on the delivery as a HU just makes more sense, but SAP will only remove the pallets from the stock on PGI. Since there is a delay between PGI and production, the stock levels won't be accurate.

Please provide insight into how this is normally handled.
