In the packing transaction, you can create HU proposals based on packing instructions by entering specific standard values such as the material to be packed, the plant where packing is carried out, the ship-to party and the quantity to be packed. The system starts packing instruction determination based on the values entered and packs the materials as described in the packing instruction it determines. For more information, see
Create a Handling Unit Proposal Based on a Packing Instruction.
Alternatively, you can create an HU proposal manually in the packing transaction. For more information, see
Create a Handling Unit Proposal Manually.
You create actual handling units by saving the handling unit proposals. You can modify the proposals as required before saving them.
There are several ways in which you can access the packing transaction. The transaction is integrated in delivery, goods receipt, shipping, repetitive manufacturing and discrete production.
In the packing transaction, you can:
Hierarchical Display in the Packing Transaction.
Select alternative packing instructions on which to base HU proposals
Delete HU proposals (that is, unpack materials)
Unpack nested HU proposals
Repack unpacked materials and unpacked HU proposals
Check HU proposals. To do this, the system simulates handling unit creation. The system cannot create handling units from HU proposals with the status "Faulty".
Display handling units that the system is going to create from the proposals
Recalculate weights and volumes of a handling unit. This is important if the measurements in the proposal have been modified manually in the packing transaction and now have to be reset to the values from the packing instruction or material master
Create handling units
- Create HU proposals (automatically from packing instructions or manually by entering items). You create an HU proposal manually if you do not want to pack according to packing instructions. You build a hierarchy of load carrier, auxiliary packing materials, if required, and the materials to be packed. For more information, see
