Overviews That Are Relevant for Packing
There are different overviews available during packing in which the necessary information is presented. You can use the following overviews to edit handling units:
This overview displays all functions that are relevant for packing for each sub-view. Automatic packing in the background is available in this overview.
You can select this overview in any of the following sub-views:
- Pack material
You can use this overview to pack materials into handling units, delete handling units, or empty handling units. You can go directly to an existing handling unit and edit it by entering its ID and then selecting the detailed view for that handling unit.
- Pack HUs
You can use this overview to pack handling units in other handling units (10 crates onto one pallet, for example), empty and delete handling units, and assign handling units for processing. You can also access a detailed display of the handling units.
- Packing proposal
You can use this overview to pack materials and handling units by using previously-defined packing instructions or manually-defined packing proposals.
- Single entry
You can use this overview to pack one material per activity with a specific quantity or you can pack one handling unit into another handling unit. This overview is intended primarily for batch activities.
Since all function modules for the packing function are available to you, you should avoid using batch input.
- Total content
You can use this overview to display a total overview of all the handling units with the corresponding hierarchy levels. All functions except generation of new items can be executed from this overview. You can also access a detailed display of the handling units.
- General header data
You can use this overview to display the delivery header data, deadlines, and the routes within document processing. When you pack without object reference, this tab contains general header data that is used as default values for creating handling units. For example, you could use this screen to define whether you want to plan handling units, generate handling units that already exist (whose contents was not yet posted to goods receipt) or generate handling units that exist and are already in the warehouse (whose contents was posted to goods receipt).
In the Pack material sub-view, all materials that are to be packed appear in the lower half of the screen and all handling units that can be packed into appear in the upper half of the screen. If you would like to go to the hierarchy layout, choose Goto ®
The general overview clearly displays all materials, packaging materials and handling units that were already assembled. You can use this overview to pack, unpack and repack intuitively, for example. All changes to the contents of individual handling units appear immediately. If you want to go to the tab layout, either select Goto ®
