You use the kanban correction functions to correct the ERROR status (status 9), that is, you reset the status to one that is valid for processing once you have corrected the error.

Errors can occur when posting goods receipts if Customizing data or master data has not been maintained correctly so that the system could not find a cost collector.

In Customizing for KANBAN under Status ® Define error handling in status change you can define that when a kanban produces a certain error, it is not given the status ERROR but that the system simply produces an error message. In this case you do not need a kanban correction. Please read the section on Error Handling.


You should first of all correct the error in Customizing or in the master data.


In the kanban correction you have the following options:

Using Error messages you can display the error message or the long text of the error message for a faulty kanban.

You can edit the kanban via Choose:

You can change the status by entering the new status in the field group Correction and choosing Change status/quantity.

Please note: The system changes the status but does not automatically create or change a replenishment element. For faulty kanbans you can create the replenishment element with Kanban correction and you can change the replenishment element with Change replenishment.

You can change the actual quantity by entering the quantity in the field Actual quantity and choosing Change status/quantity.

The system changes the actual quantity, but no goods receipt is posted. This means that no automatic posting is made in Inventory Management. If you want the quantity changes to have an effect on warehouse stock, you must also repeat these changes in Inventory Management.

It can make sense to change quantities with no GR posting if, for example, the actual kanban quantity deviates from the target quantity and this information is to be passed on to the demand source and to the supply source. Therefore it is extremely informative to change quantities. This function is only used with the quantity signal.

The batch is also very informative (Actual quantity/batch). This function is used with withdrawal to cost center.

If the goods receipt could not be posted as expected when reporting a kanban FULL (for example, if the system could not convert the currency or if the kanban is faulty for another reason), then you can manually post the goods receipt later.


If you defined "separate goods receipt" for the control cycle, then the system only sets the status to FULL. The actual goods receipt must be posted in Inventory Management.

In the field Actual quantity enter the quantity to be posted, check the status and select Kanban correction.

If an error occurred in the replenishment procedure (for example, the scheduling agreement is no longer valid), then it can be retriggered from the kanban correction screen. Here, the system creates a new replenishment element (for example, a new production order).

This can be achieved using Kanban correction. The system displays a dialog box for confirmation.


If you use this function when another valid replenishment element exists, then the system does not delete the old replenishment element. However, the reference between the kanban and the old replenishment element no longer exists. Therefore, if you set a kanban to FULL you can no longer post a goods receipt for the old element. It is recommended that you delete old replenishment elements. You will only see the number of the old element until the new element has been created.

You can reverse the last kanban signal. This includes the following actions:

In the following cases, a reversal is not possible:

In order to carry out the reversal, press the button Reversal.

If a replenishment element has already been created, you can change it here (if you have the necessary authorization).

Using Change replenishment the respective replenishment element appears and here you can carry out the changes.
