Automatic/Immediate Transfer Order Creation

Automatic TO Creation for Transfer Requirements
You can set up the Warehouse Management system to create transfer orders automatically as a
background process. You set up the system to carry out this process by setting an indicator in each
movement type separately. When you create a transfer requirement, the system copies this indicator into
the transfer requirement header.
To activate the automatic creation of transfer orders for these transfer requirements you must start the
report RLAUTA10 as a batch job. For this process you define a variant for each different indicator. This
makes it possible for you to define different starting times and time spans to repeat each task periodically.
To create transfer orders automatically, three processes are available:
1. The system creates a transfer order for each transfer requirement
2. The system creates transfer orders only for transfer requirements that meet certain criteria (for
example, date or time). You enter these criteria individually into a user exit.
3. Using criteria as described in point 2, you can also set up the system to assign a reference
number to combine the transfer requirements for multiple processing. The assignment of the
reference number can take place separately in a user exit.

Creating Transfer Orders for Posting Change Notices
You can create transfer orders automatically for certain classes of posting change notices. Using the
indicator Automatic transfer order creation, you can select certain movement types for this processing. To
activate automatic transfer order creation for these posting change notices, you need to plan the
report RLAUTA11 as a batch job. Here you define a separate variant for the different indicators. This way,
different starting times and repetition cycles can be defined for the different indicators.
When the transfer orders are created, you can activate two processing types:

A transfer order is created for each posting change notice.

A transfer order is created only for posting change notices that fulfill certain criteria (for example,
date, time). The criteria can be defined individually using an SAP customer exit.
If needed, you can generate a log to be sent to the inbox of a selected user.

Setting up the System to Create Transfer Orders Automatically
For instructions on how to set up automatic TO creation for transfer requirements and posting change
notices, see the Warehouse Management IMG documentation under Activities  Transfers  Set up
autom. TO creation for TRs/post.chge notices.

Immediate TO Creation for IM Posting

These are illustrated in the figure below: If a transfer requirement is defined for immediate transfer order creation. you should activate the mail control. you can determine whether the problem lies in the actual TO creation (a mail message is generated) or in the way the system processes the material document as shown in the above graphic. Automatic/Immediate Transfer Order Creation for Deliveries . If the system does not create a transfer order immediately. the system selects the field Immediate TO creation in the header. This way.Whether the system creates a transfer order immediately for a material document posting in IM is based on several factors.

For the interface between SD shipping and WM. Since this processing is executed independently of delivery generation. You can then plan to periodically execute the report RSNAST00 (Selection Program for Issuing Output) with a corresponding repetition time for the message type WMTA. Depending on the processing time of the message type WMTA. there can be different processing types:  Time 1 . The combination "Shipping point / Delivery type" is used to determine the message type. you can also set up immediate or automatic transfer order creation for deliveries. . Therefore. The condition technique can be used to initiate message type "WMTA" when the delivery is created. If you want the system to generate transfer orders in the background without any additional activity necessary by the user. This process is controlled by the message control function in the SD Shipping component. we recommend that you use processing times "1" or "2". The prerequisite for this is that at least one item of the delivery is relevant to WM. we refer to it as automatic transfer order creation. we call this immediate transfer order creation. the message is processed either via a program set in batch mode or manually via the transaction "Messages for delivery".  Time 4 (processing immediately) Here message processing is initiated immediately after the delivery has been created.3 (processing later) In this case.

see Sales and Distribution Basic Functions Output Control Output Determination Output Determination Using the Condition Technique Maintain Output Determination for Deliveries Maintain Condition Tables in the SD Shipping IMG documentation. If you choose an appropriately small repetition time period when you set up the system to use report RSNAST00. To maintain the message determination for deliveries. .This variant of processing transfer orders in the system provides significant advantages in system performance in comparison to processing time "4" and is by far the preferred method to use for this activity. the time required to create transfer orders is nearly the same as when using time period "4" for immediate transfer order generation.
