Rough Goods Receipt
The rough goods receipt is a step that takes place before the actual goods receipt posting. The delivery is
identified and the items on the delivery documents sent by the vendor are matched up with the order items in
the system. The system compares the quantities ordered with those contained in the delivery papers.
Technically, a rough goods receipt document is the same as an inbound delivery. Only after the goods are
physically received and the goods receipt posted are the articles included in the inventory of the site. When
the goods receipt is entered, reference is made to the rough goods receipt.
You can only use rough goods receipts if you use SAP Retail. Rough GR is made by manually entering the
quantities delivered in confirmation control screen.
A goods receipt for a purchase order can take place either in one or in two steps. If it takes place in two
steps, it is first entered as "rough" and then as "exact." The rough goods receipt involves identifying the
delivery and matching up the items on the delivery documents sent by the vendor with the order items in the
system.
A rough goods receipt can be entered for a number of purchase orders and can refer to a shipping
notification. A rough goods receipt can only be entered if a special confirmation key is set for the purchase
order items.
When a rough goods receipt is posted, a document is created that is similar to a shipping notification. When
the exact goods receipt is entered, reference is made to the rough goods receipt on the rough goods receipt
reference document.
This is the first step in a two-step goods receipt. Only the information contained in the delivery note from the
vendor is entered in the system.
Types of Goods receipt
Basically there are two types of Goods receipt in SAP retail
Single step
Two step

Single step:
Goods receipt happening in one step can be called as Single step. Receipt of goods directly in to our own
stock is an example for this process. Depends on the stock type the posting to the accounts will happen.

Two Step:
Goods receipt happening in more than one step namely rough and exact goods receipt can be called as two
step procedure.
For example, the goods shall be first received by rough goods receipt and further added in to own stock by
using confirmed /exact goods receipt.

Advantages
The rough goods receipt has the following advantages,
Quantities on the delivery note can be entered without worrying the order quantities.
Order items can be assigned and arranged
The goods receipt can be included in availability checks
This goods receipt can be included in MRP point of view.
Count lists can be created
Goods receipt/issue slips can be created
The received quantity will not affect any cost object until confirmed GR.
This enables you to identify large quantity differences or articles that are wrongly delivered even
before you take physical receipt of the goods.
Integration
Although this scenario designed exclusively for SAP retail, still the following integration needs to be carried
out before executing this rough GR scenario.
SAP Materials management
SAP Retail
SAP Warehouse management

SAP Retail also enables you to enter the goods receipt in two steps. To ensure that the data is as accurate
as possible when the goods are actually checked at goods receipt, you can enter the delivery note data as a
rough goods receipt. You post the actual goods receipt in a second step, referencing the rough goods
receipt.

basis of this assignment, the system is able to recognize which confirmation category represents order
acknowledgments and which one represents shipping notifications.

Set Up Confirmation Control
Once you have set up the confirmation control facility in a production system, you should not make any
changes to the relevant settings. Changes to the Customize settings can lead to data inconsistencies in your
system (e.g. incorrect MRP-relevant quantities).
In this step, you define confirmation control keys and specify the confirmation sequence.

Confirmation control key:
For PO items in respect of which confirmations are to be used, a confirmation key must be assigned. You
can define a confirmation control key with just one confirmation category (e.g. shipping notification) and a
confirmation control key covering several confirmation categories (order acknowledgment, loading
confirmation, shipping notification).

Confirmation sequence:
With the confirmation sequence, you can specify the order in which the individual confirmations defined in a
confirmation control key are expected and which confirmation categories are to be automatically monitored.
In addition, you can specify for all confirmation categories whether they are for your information only or are
also to be relevant to Materials Planning and Goods Receiving

line is copied into a delivery, the item category is also copied. For items independent of orders in the delivery
(for example, packaging material that is entered in the delivery) or deliveries without reference to an order,
the item category is determined by the SAP System by allocating the item category group to a delivery type.

Delivery Split by Warehouse Number
In this activity, you can make settings so that deliveries within one warehouse are created automatically for
specific warehouse numbers and delivery types, and a delivery split is carried out if necessary. In the case of
a delivery within one warehouse, all storage locations of the delivery items must belong to one warehouse
number, or they can have no warehouse number assigned to them. If this does not apply to the items of an
order, then several deliveries are created automatically.
