When you are creating and processing deliveries, it is often necessary to check the completeness of the delivery. A delivery is considered to be incomplete if fields relevant for the delivery have not been filled, or if certain settings defined in Customizing have not been taken into account. The delivery incompletion log ensures that this completion check is executed automatically.
