Additional Details

A logistical product with full products is composed of one sales product and one or more procurement products that include full products with empties as components.

A logistical product with full products has a similar structure to a logistical product that does not include empties. For more information about the structure of logistical products, see Logistical Product.

Effects on Existing Data

With the Create Procurement Products app you can create procurement products based on a sales product in a specific unit of measure to be used for stock separation. Previously, empties and full products were not supported, but as of this release, you can also create procurement products based on a sales product that contains empties.

You create a procurement product based on a product that contains empties in the same way that you create a procurement product based on a product without empties. However, the following prerequisites must be met.

Prerequisites for Creating Procurement Products Based on Full Products

  • A bill of material for the base unit of measure of the sales product must exist.

  • A bill of material for the chosen order unit and issue unit of measure must exist.

  • The bills of material (BOM) for the order unit and the issue unit must match, that is, have the same number of BOM components and the BOM components must be the same.

The base unit of measure (UoM) of a procurement product is the same as one of the following, depending on the configuration setting defined when the use of logistical products is enabled.

  • Base UoM of procurement products is the same as the base UoM of the associated sales product

  • Base UoM of procurement products is the same as the issue unit of the procurement product
