Function documentationConsumption Posting Delivery for Production Supply

 

This function allows the SAP ERP system to generate a consumption posting delivery when backflushing while confirming the manufacturing order. It then replicates this consumption posting delivery to the SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM) system. The outbound delivery order in the SAP EWM system is not relevant for picking. The system posts goods issue immediately upon creating the outbound delivery order.

The system defines the goods movement bin from the assignment of the production supply area (PSA) to the storage bin. For more information about the PSA assignment, see Assignment of Storage Bins to a Production Supply Area (PSA).

Prerequisites

You have made the necessary Customizing settings for the production supply and for the delivery. For more information, see Customizing Settings for the Production Supply and Customizing Settings for the Delivery.

Activities

Exception Handling When Goods Issue Fails

For cases where goods issue fails, you define in Customizing whether the system is to create a data record automatically, in order to process the failed goods movements for the production confirmation in the SAP ERP system again. You can define whether the system is to do the following:

  • Post a partial goods issue for all items for which goods issue is possible

  • Adjust the delivery quantity and send the information to the SAP ERP system

Post Partial Goods Issue

If part of the goods issue is successful, you can post partial goods issue.

Example Example

For example, if the system could post 9 out of 10 items, you can have the system post goods issue for these 9 items, and handle the incorrect item as described under Adjust Delivery Quantity. Alternatively, you can have the system set all items to 0, and handle them as described under Adjust Delivery Quantity. The system forwards this information on to the SAP ERP system.

End of the example.

If you want to post partial goods issue, you must make the following settings in Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management:

  • You have selected the Automatic GI for Consumption Posting Delivery checkbox.

  • You have selected the Post Partial GI checkbox.

Adjust Delivery Quantity

If you want to adjust the delivery quantity, you must make the following settings in Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management. A user in the SAP EWM system must process the delivery manually; for example, the user must post goods issue after correcting the original error, or adjust the delivery quantity.

  • You have selected the Automatic GI for Consumption Posting Delivery checkbox.

  • You have selected the Adjust Quantity checkbox.

If you do not want to adjust the delivery quantity, the quantity remains the same, and the system does not post goods issue.

To make these settings, in Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management, choose Start of the navigation path Goods Issue Process Next navigation step Outbound Delivery Next navigation step Production Supply Next navigation step Post Goods Issue for Consumption Posting. End of the navigation path

Assignment of Stock to the Goods Issue Bin

For example, if multiple suitable stocks are in a handling unit in the goods movement bin in an unpacked state, the system uses the Business Add-In (BAdI) to select a suitable stock.

In the standard implementation, the system sorts all stocks of the PSA using the first-in first-out (FIFO) principle.

You can implement BAdI /SCWM/EX_CORE_PROD_STOCK to sort the stocks at the PSA for consumption posting according to the following criteria:

  • Sort the stocks per delivery item

  • Reduce the quantity of stock items

  • Delete stock items from the list

For more information about this BAdI, see Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management. Choose Start of the navigation path Business Add-Ins (BAdIs) for Extended Warehouse Management Next navigation step Cross-Process Settings Next navigation step Goods Movements for Delivery Next navigation step BAdI: Select and Sort Stock for Consumption Posting Delivery.
