A packing instruction serves as a template for the creation of a handling unit. In a packing instruction, you define the materials and packaging materials to be packed in a handling unit.

This enables you to reproduce specific customer packaging requirements in the system. You can also automate the packing process by creating a proposal for a handling unit, based on a packing instruction.


CautionThe system copies the dimensions from the material master record and uses these values to calculate the weight and volume for the HU in the packing instruction. You now have the option of changing the calculated values. If you change the weight and volume data, the system copies them to the HU proposal as fixed values, without checking them. If you do not change the values, the system calculates the weight and volume entries for the HU proposal dynamically.
