You have to make the following settings to ensure that dangerous goods (DG) are handled correctly within your business processes.

Activities

General Settings
  • You have specified environment parameters that control the processes in EH&S Services. You do this in Customizing for SCM Basis under   EH&S Services   Basic Services   Specify Environment Parameters  .

  • SAP uses the EH&S framework to extract DG information in the form of phrases for printing. To enable the EH&S framework, you have set up phrase management in EH&S Services and assigned a text pattern in the DG master. You have also defined phrases in phrase management.

  • If you want to use the DG Mixed Loading Check functions, you have activated the SCM_EHS_DG_CI_1 business function.

  • You have created a DG profile to activate DG checks. The profile defines general conditions for the processing of DG, such as conditions for the display of error messages or whether you are allowed to define DG manually. For more information, see Customizing for Transportation Management under   Basic Functions   Dangerous Goods   Define Dangerous Goods Profile  .

  • You have assigned the DG profile to the business document types that you use in your business process. For more information, see below.

    Note that if you want to enter dangerous goods data into your business documents without performing any DG checks, you still have to assign a DG profile to the business document type. You must activate the DG Active checkbox in the profile.

  • You have activated general settings for DG processing in Customizing for Transportation Management under   Basic Functions   Dangerous Goods   Define Common Settings for Dangerous Goods Processing  .

  • You have defined the mode of transport in Customizing for Transportation Management under   Master Data   Transportation Network   Transportation Lane   Define Transportation Mode  .

  • You have assigned the methods FUB_DG and VSR_DG to the relevant process controller strategy to use the DG checks during FU building and VSR. For more information, see Customizing for SCM Basis under   Process Controller   Assign Method to a Strategy  .

Settings for DG Processing Within ERP Logistics Integration
  • You have classified products as DG in EH&S Services.

  • You have assigned the DG profile to the relevant business document types in Customizing for Transportation Management under the following:

    •   Freight Order Management   Freight Order   Define Freight Order Types  

    •   Planning   Freight Unit   Define Freight Unit Types  

    •   Integration   ERP Logistics Integration   Order-Based Transportation Requirement   Define Order-Based Transportation Requirement Types  

    •   Integration   ERP Logistics Integration   Delivery-Based Transportation Requirement   Define Delivery-Based Transportation Requirement Types  

Settings for DG Processing Within Forwarding Order Management
  • If you want to use the Check Framework functions for handling document-based dangerous goods data, you have activated the switch EH&S Services in SCM: Document-Based Dangerous Goods Data (/SCMB/SFWS_EHS_DG_UI_2).

  • You have assigned the DG profile to the relevant business document types in Customizing for Transportation Management under the following:

    •   Forwarding Order Management   Forwarding Order   Define Forwarding Order Types  

    •   Forwarding Order Management   Forwarding Quotation   Define Forwarding Quotation Types  

    •   Freight Order Management   Freight Order   Define Freight Order Types  

    •   Planning   Freight Unit   Define Freight Unit Types  

Adapting DG Processing

You can adapt dangerous goods processing to your requirements as follows:

  • You can create a DG check according to your needs by creating a function module, assigning it, and specifying a dangerous goods check method. For more information, see Customizing for SCM Basis under   EH&S Services   Dangerous Goods Management   Dangerous Goods Checks and Dangerous Goods Documents   Dangerous Goods Checks   Specify Dangerous Goods Check Methods  .

    You then assign the DG check method to the check schema in Customizing for SCM Basis under   EH&S Services   Dangerous Goods Management   Dangerous Goods Checks and Dangerous Goods Documents   Dangerous Goods Checks   Specify Dangerous Goods Check Schemas  .

  • You can change, delete, or extend the input data for the dangerous goods check and for printing data. For more information, see Customizing for Transportation Management under   Business Add-Ins (BAdIs) for Transportation Management   Basic Functions   Dangerous Goods   Integration with EH&S   BAdI: Definition of Data for Printing and Checking for Dangerous Goods  .

  • You can read template data from an external database instead of the EH&S Services database. For more information, see Customizing for Transportation Management under   Business Add-Ins (BAdIs) for Transportation Management   Basic Functions   Dangerous Goods   Template Data   BAdI: Dangerous Goods Processing  .
