Additional Details

  • The new Determine Normalized Quantity Based on Documents app allows you to determine the normalized quantity per product and UoM based on historical consolidation data, that is, based on the packaging information in existing road freight orders. For more information, see NLQ Determination Based on Documents.

    You can also run this function in the background. To do so, on the SAP Easy Access menu choose Start of the navigation pathLogistics Next navigation step Transportation Management Next navigation step Administration Next navigation step Background Processing  Next navigation step Determine Normalized Quantity Based on DocumentsEnd of the navigation path. For more information, see Determine NLQs Based on Documents.

  • If normalized quantities in the Change Package Type Assignment app have changed (for example, because you have changed them manually or have used the Determine Normalized Quantity Based on Randomized Data app), these changes are not reflected in existing business documents such as freight orders or freight units.

    Planning with business documents that are based on outdated normalized quantities might lead to unexpected results, such as over-utilization or under-utilization. The new Check NLQs and Cancel Documents app allows you to analyze such results, which would otherwise be very difficult - if not impossible. You can check whether the normalized quantities in your business documents are up to date and, if not, cancel these business documents. For more information, see Check Normalized Quantities in Business Documents.

    You can also run this function in the background. To do so, on the SAP Easy Access menu choose Start of the navigation pathLogistics Next navigation step Transportation Management Next navigation step Administration Next navigation step Background Processing Next navigation step Check NLQs and Cancel DocumentsEnd of the navigation path. For example, you can schedule this function to run automatically after you have used the Determine Normalized Quantity Based on Randomized Data app. For more information, see Check NLQs and Cancel Documents.

  • When determining normalized quantities based on randomized data, you can now also enter the level on which normalized quantities are to be determined (on product level or reference product level, or both). For more information, see NLQ Determination Based on Randomized Data.

    Note that the Determine Normalized Quantity per Product and UoM app has been renamed to Determine Normalized Quantity Based on Randomized Data.
