The packing status check profile determines the packing status of ahandling unit proposal and also of the subsequent handling unit.
In the check profile, you assign a packing status to each of the possible ways in which an HU proposal can vary from the packing instruction. For example, an HU proposal that falls short of the target quantity is assigned status "Packing instruction violated" (red light), if you have defined in the check profile that this variance causes an error.
A check profile can be assigned to each packing instruction. When you create an HU proposal with this packing instruction, the system assigns the proposal a packing status, according to the settings in the check profile.
The packing status of an HU proposal is calculated from the individual packing statuses of its sub-HU proposals, the sub-HU with the lowest packing status determining the status of the proposal as a whole.
An HU proposal that fully respects the packing instruction is assigned status "Packing instruction respected" (green light). If you create an HU from an HU proposal, it also inherits the status of the HU proposal.
For example, a partial HU has the status "Tolerated variance from packing instruction" (yellow light) because it falls short of the target quantity (if you specify in the check profile that this variance can be tolerated).
An HU proposal has the status "Packing instruction violated" (red light) if, for example, it contains a material other than the one specified in the packing instruction (again, the corresponding setting must be made in the check profile). The system cannot create handling units from HU proposals with the status "Packing instruction violated".
The packing status check profile is made up of the possible ways in which an HU proposal can vary from the packing instruction. You assign a packing status to each of these variances.
