Function documentation Delivery Split for Outbound Deliveries 

Use

You can perform a delivery split in various business processes. For example, you have completely picked an outbound delivery order in Extended Warehouse Management (EWM). You find that you cannot load the complete quantity. You can create an outbound delivery for individual delivery items and therefore perform an outbound delivery split. Either you or the system can split an outbound delivery order or an outbound delivery.

Prerequisites

Prerequisites for the Outbound Delivery Order Split Based on the Outbound Delivery Request

  You have performed the Customizing for route determination (see Special Features for Outbound Delivery Objects).

If EWM finds various routes for different delivery items, it performs an outbound delivery order split. You can program a separate logic for route determination in the Business Add-In (BAdI) BAdI: Route Determination and Route Check that causes EWM to perform an outbound delivery order split. For more information, see the Implementation Guide (IMG) for EWM under Business Add-Ins (BAdIs) for Extended Warehouse Management Cross-Process Settings Delivery Processing Determinations in Delivery BAdI: Route Determination and Route Check.

Prerequisites for the Outbound Delivery Order Split

  You have defined process codes that adjust both the delivery quantity and the transferred delivery quantity, that is, you have chosen the value 2 Adjustment of Delivery Quantity and Del. Quant. Transferred for the quantity adjustment. For more information, see the IMG for EWM under Cross-Process Settings Delivery Processing  Process Codes  Define Process Codes.

  You defined process code profiles. If EWM is to use a default process code (for example, O002) for quantity changes, you have chosen a default process code in the Customizing settings. For more information, see the IMG for EWM under Cross-Process Settings Delivery Processing Process Codes Maintain Process Code Profiles.

  You have defined the item types for the outbound deliveries in which you assigned the corresponding process code profiles. For more information, see IMG for EWM under Goods Issue Process Outbound Delivery Manual Settings Define Item Types for Outbound Delivery Process.

  Either you or the system can split delivery items or partial quantities into a new delivery. The prerequisite for this is that you have not performed a warehouse activity for this delivery item or partial quantity. For example, you have not created a warehouse task for picking yet.

Prerequisites for the Outbound Delivery Split

  If the delivery item of the outbound delivery is relevant for picking, you have at least picked the delivery quantity that you want to split into a new subitem. You can only create new subitems for this picked quantity.

  If you have already started loading, that is, the status type Loading for the delivery item has the status value Partially Completed, the delivery quantity that you have split must also be loaded. This means that the status Loading for the subitem has the status value Completed.

Features

Outbound Delivery Order Split Based on Outbound Delivery Request

EWM performs an outbound delivery order split on the basis of route determination. For example, an outbound delivery request consists of delivery items 10, 20, and 30. Delivery items 10 and 20 have route R1 and delivery item 30 has route R2. EWM creates an outbound delivery order for delivery items 10 and 20 and a second outbound delivery order for delivery item 30.

For more information, see Route Determination in the Delivery and Special Features for Outbound Delivery Objects.

Outbound Delivery Order Split

The same functions exist for the outbound delivery order split as for the Delivery Split for Inbound Deliveries. To do this, on the SAP Easy Access screen, choose Extended Warehouse Management Delivery Processing Outbound Delivery Maintain Outbound Delivery Order.

However, when EWM adjusts the delivery quantities, it takes different quantities into account than for the delivery split for inbound deliveries. EWM takes the following quantities of the outbound delivery order into account:

  The quantities of the open warehouse tasks

  The packed quantity

  The loaded quantity

  The aggregated quantity

  The picked quantity

  The number of serial numbers

  The catch weight quantity assignment

Outbound Delivery Split

If you want to perform an outbound delivery split, you split an outbound delivery order item. EWM creates corresponding subitems. You create outbound deliveries for the individual subitems.

You can split delivery items for both packed and unpacked products. EWM displays the subitems that have been created on the Items or HU tab page using + symbols in the Level column. You can also delete an outbound delivery split. To do so, you must first delete the corresponding outbound delivery and then the subitem. You delete the whole subitem when deleting unpacked products. For packed products, you can delete the parts of a subitem that are packed in an HU.

When you save a newly created subitem, EWM posts the stock of the delivery item to the subitem, meaning that the stock is item based. You can post goods issue for every subitem.

The document flow always displays the quantity of delivery items that have not been split and does not display the corresponding subitems.
