To process deliveries or transfer requirements collectively, you first group the documents together.


There are open transfer requirements, outbound deliveries relevant for picking, or inbound deliveries relevant for putaway, which you can group together for multiple processing.


If you want to assign several transfer requirements or deliveries to one group number in order to process them collectively, choose Logistics ® Logistics Execution ® Outbound Processes from the SAP menu.
