This procedure describes how to create both single and multi-level packing instructions. Multi-level packing instructions can be created in one procedure. You create the subordinate packing instructions directly from the main packing instruction by entering the name and item type of the subordinate packing instruction and branching straight to the initial screen for creation.
It is therefore not necessary to create a subordinate packing instruction beforehand.
The system displays the screen Master Data for Packing With Packing Instructions.
You branch to the Components tab page on the Create Packing Instruction screen.
The Create Packing Instruction: Components screen appears.
-The items should be entered in the following order: load carrier, auxiliary packing material, packed goods/subordinate packing instruction. The first item is always the load carrier. Text items do not affect the hierarchy and can be entered anywhere below the load carrier.
For reference materials, you can set the indicator Mmix (Material Mix) in order to allow that different materials which have the same reference material can be packed in one HU.
-If required, enter a minimum quantity and a rounding quantity.
An appropriate indicator is assigned to the load carrier.
For a subordinate packing instruction, enter the item category and the name of the packing instruction and choose Enter. The system asks if you want to create this packing instruction.
By choosing Yes, you branch to the initial screen for creating packing instructions, in which you can create your subordinate packing instruction in the same way.
After saving your data you branch back to the main packing instruction.
Packing instructions can only be saved if they have no errors that prevent handling unit creation. The system checks that a handling unit can actually be created from the packing instruction. For example, if the maximum loading weight is exceeded, a handling unit cannot be created.
