Function documentation HU Integration in Delivery Processing 

Use

Handling unit integration (HU integration) in delivery processing is used to forward HU data between SAP R/3 and Extended Warehouse Management (EWM).

The handling unit has a reference to the delivery.

Integration

All HU-relevant processes of the goods receipt process in EWM are based on the correct and complete forwarding of HU data from SAP R/3 to EWM. If this forwarding is incorrect or incomplete, errors occur in delivery processing.

EWM simultaneously creates inbound deliveries and HUs in HU management. For this it uses the HU information from the inbound delivery notification. This means that EWM automatically creates HUs that have been defined in SAP ERP.

Prerequisites

The mapping of HU data from SAP R/3 to EWM must be defined.

Features

Goods Receipt Process

During goods receipt posting (GR posting), delivery processing determines which products exist in which quantities in the handling unit warehouse task. Delivery processing updates these quantities during inbound delivery. You can post the goods receipt (GR) in delivery processing completely or partially.

EWM determines the packaged quantity from the handling unit information. Delivery processing sets a status for the packed quantity (for example, unpacked, partially packed, completely packed).

Goods Issue Process

You can only post the goods issue (GI) on delivery basis completely. A partial GI posting is not possible. You post the GI for every delivery separately. If the Cross-Delivery indicator is set in the data for a cross-delivery handling unit, delivery processing posts the GI automatically for all associated deliveries.

Example

The following figure shows an example GI posting process for cross-delivery handling units.

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text

You have a Delivery1 with HU1 and HU2.

If you post the GI for HU2, delivery processing automatically posts the GI for HU1 as well, since it only posts one GI for the complete delivery.

HU2 is cross-delivery. In other words, it is also relevant for Delivery2. You must either post a GI completely for both deliveries using the selected delivery headers for Delivery1 and 2, or select HU1 and 2 and post the GI. If Delivery2 contains a HU3 that is also cross-delivery, you will get an error message.
