Using a handling unit in a cross-system logistics chain usually requires an identification number that is unique worldwide. (C) SAP AG SCM660 2-6 . This situation should be depicted in the SAP System using Handling Unit Management. it moves material quantities summarized as handling units/packages. It is therefore possible to assign a "shipping unit number" (ShpUn) or "Serial Shipping Container Code" (SSCC number) to each handling unit. # After you have created a handling unit. Handling units can be moved and can be passed on to partners throughout the supply chain. They can also be changed. Logistics within a company does not move individual pieces of different materials.Business Background Simplification of the Logistics Process Flow: # In many cases.

This means that all movement types are supported. (C) SAP AG SCM660 2-7 .

Substeps: $ Create the transfer order (TO) with reference to the delivery. Determine the withdrawal storage bins using Warehouse Management. $ Create pick containers (pick-handling unit) (If you do not pick complete storage units/handling units, then you do not have to create a special pick container.) $ Confirm the material withdrawal $ Enter any difference quantities that have occurred during picking $ Assign the picked items to the pick container Notes: $ For each delivery item, the system searches pickable stocks according to the picking strategy valid in the source storage type. The decisive criteria here are the material and the quantity. In the outbound delivery, you cannot specify which handling units should be picked. $ There are user exits available, for example, for picking specific serial numbers or mixed pallets. Using the transfer order split ensures that a transfer order only contains handling unit-relevant or only non-handling unit-relevant items.

A pick-handling unit is always required when you only pick a partial quantity of a warehouse handling unit. # You must create the pick-handling unit and assign it to the transfer order before you confirm the latter. When you create a pick-handling unit you can also print a pickhandling unit label.
# #

Procedure for creating pick-handling units: ! Manual pick-handling unit creation using transaction LH01 ! Automatic pick-handling unit creation when transfer orders are created. You can create additional pick-handling units using transaction LH01. ! User exit: You can assign more than one pick-handling unit to a transfer order.

Serial Number Master Record

 SAP AG 2001

! !

!

A serial number, which can also be assigned to the material number, uniquely identifies a single piece of a material in connection with the material number. Serial number management is available in various subfunctions within the SAP system. This means that serial numbers are used, for example, in production and maintenance processing, but also in Inventory Management, Quality Management, and Sales and Distribution. To work with serial numbers, you must first create a serial number profile in Customizing. This profile controls serial number assignment in the company's various business transactions. You then enter the profile key into the master records for all materials whose serial numbers should be assigned using this profile (Views: Sales and Distribution: Gen./Plant, Work Scheduling, or Gen. Plant Data/Storage 2). You can create serial number master records based on materials. The system uses this as a basis to generate a "pool" of serial numbers, which can then be accessed during a business transaction. If you want to be able to call serial numbers from handling units, then the serial number profile must contain a serialization procedure with the key "HUSL" ("Maintain handling unit"). (Serialization procedures control the assignment and/or usage of serial numbers in various documents and postings, for example, in production orders or deliveries).

You can display the serial numbers of materials packed in handling units by choosing Serial Numbers on the Content/Total Content tab page. If the material has been packed or repacked several times, then you can only call up its serial number using the handling unit in which the material currently resides. When picking partial quantities or serialized materials from handling units, you must enter the serial numbers of the individual pieces to be picked. When the goods receipt is posted, the serial numbers for the delivered materials are copied into the outbound delivery. You can then display the serial numbers in the document by choosing Extras from the menu. If you use Handling Unit Management, you can also perform a delivery split by serial numbers.
