You can generate pick HUs into which materials are packed during picking. The pick HU is assigned to a transfer order in WM. All the pick HUs are then copied into the delivery and further packing is normally no longer necessary in the delivery.
If you are usingHandling Unit Management, you will normally use handling units during picking from storage locations managed for handling units. Here, the complete HU can be picked or the stock can be repacked onto a pick HU. If you still wish to use pick HUs for picking, even though you do not have storage locations with HU management, you can set this function in the Implementation Guide (IMG).
As of Release 4.0, you have the possibility to determine a packing proposal in the transfer order using a customer exit, and you can then confirm the handling units that were created to the delivery. If you wish to continue to use this functionality, you need to make the appropriate changes in the Implementation Guide (IMG).
If you wish to determine a packing proposal in the transfer order using a customer exit, you must configure the following setting in Customizing for Handling Unit Management:
If you wish to use the pick-and-pack functions for a storage location without HU management, you must configure the following setting in Customizing for Warehouse Management.
If you are working with Handling Unit Management, you do not need to set the indicator for pick/pack. If you wish to automatically create pick HUs during TO creation, you must configure the following setting in Customizing for Handling Unit Management:
Create an entry for any combination of warehouse number, source storage type, destination storage type, and movement type, enter a packaging material, and set the indicator forAutomatic Creation of a Pick HU . Use the workstep Control for Automatic Pick-HU Creation.
In the Implementation Guide (IMG), you can set for the creation of pick HUs whichpackaging material the system should propose for picking. You can set the following packing proposals for any combination of warehouse number, source storage type, destination storage type, and movement type:
The system automatically creates a pick HU with the specified packaging material during creation of a transfer order and assigns the pick HU to this transfer order.
The system does not create any pick HUs, but uses the specified packaging material as information and copies this, for example to an IDoc, for the creation of a transfer order. If this IDoc is sent to another system, the receiving system can create a pick HU using this proposal. This ensures for the verification that the picked materials can also be packed into this handling unit.
The system does not create any pick HUs, nor does it determine a packaging material. You can create the pick HUs manually and assign these then to a transfer order.
You wish to define that in a certain storage type (for example, fixed bin warehouse) Europallets will always be used for picking. In Customizing, you then set automatic creation of pick HUs and the use of the packaging material Europallet for this storage type. In another storage type, for example, the packaging changes frequently, and you decide there that the pick HU is to be created manually.
TO Item Split for Pick HUs
If you determine during picking of the TO items that the pick HU is too small for the entire item quantity, you can split the TO item and execute picking for the newly created pick HU.
