This function enables the system to find a packing instruction by specific characteristics. The condition technique is applied for this.
You define a packing instruction/reference packing instruction that refers to specific characteristics, such as material/reference material and ship-to party. If you now want to pack this specific material for this specific ship-to party, the system can find the pre-defined packing instruction and use it to create one or more HU proposals that exactly fit the requirements of the customer. Packing instruction determination thus automates the packing process.
The system starts packing instruction determination when you enter a quanitity of a material to be packed and choose Pack automatically.
For more detailed information on the condition technique, see the sections underCA - Message Control. Packing instruction determination is based on the same principle.
