Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging, and Loading

1 Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU,


Packing, Staging, and Loading

You use this business process to send ordered goods to external customers. In this process,
you can send bigger quantities (for example, cartons or pallets) to the customers. You pick
the goods by waves into pick-handling units (pick-HUs) and consolidate them into shipping
HUs at a packing station. You then stage the shipping HUs and load them into a truck before
posting the goods issue. You use a separate route for each customer.

Alternatively, you can use a pallet and not a wire basket as pick-HU. The pick-HU is used
directly as the shipping-HU. On the way to the staging area, you bring the pallet to a shrink
wrapper, but this step is not represented in the system. To configure this alternative, see
Configuring Alternative Process without Packing Station [Page 43].

This alternative is not described in the process steps and test case.

The following figures illustrate the correlation between the physical process and the manual or
automatic activities in the system:

Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging, and Loading – Part 2

When the outbound delivery orders are created, the system automatically assigns the
outbound delivery orders to routes depending on scheduled dates. After the route
assignment, the outbound delivery orders are assigned to picking waves automatically. A
shipping office clerk orders transportation capacity from the shipper for each route. After the
confirmation by the shipper, the shipping office clerk creates transportation units (TUs) and
assigns them to the route and a door used for this route. With the automatic release of the
waves, the warehouse activities begin. Warehouse workers pick the goods from different
areas in the warehouse using radio frequency (RF) devices and bring them to a packing
station where they are consolidated and packed into shipping HUs such as europallets. The
packer attaches shipping labels to the shipping HUs. The shipping HUs are then moved to the

staging area. When the truck arrives, it is checked in and directed to the door. The goods are
loaded from the staging area into the truck. When the loading is complete, the shipping office
clerk posts the goods issue (GI), prints the delivery notes and the road waybill, and hands
them over to the truck driver. The shipping office clerk checks out the truck and the truck
leaves the door and the premises.

This process does not use the following function: Invoicing before goods issue to print pro
forma invoices.

Prerequisites
Customer orders and outbound deliveries exist in SAP ERP.

For more information about the configuration prerequisites, see Configuration of Outbound
Process with Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging, and Loading [Page 13]

Process
The business process runs in SAP EWM as follows:

1. Assign the outbound delivery orders to routes (EWM)

This step is carried out automatically when outbound delivery orders are created. The
system assigns the outbound delivery orders to routes, which are determined based
on the delivery dates and the route schedules.

If the system cannot find a route for an outbound delivery order (see the monitoring
section below), a warehouse clerk needs to determine the cause of the failure (for
example, missing master data due to a new route or a new ship-to party). Once the
data is corrected by the warehouse clerk, he or she retriggers the route
redetermination.

2. Create waves (EWM)

When outbound delivery orders are created, the system automatically assigns the
outbound delivery orders to waves. The wave assignment is carried out based on the
route and the activity area.

If the system cannot determine a wave for an outbound delivery (see the monitoring
section below), a shipping office clerk has to check the log for the wave assignment
and if necessary, make the necessary settings in the system. Afterwards, the
shipping office clerk retriggers the wave assignment.

3. Create a TU (EWM)

The shipping office clerk orders transportation capacity from the shipper for the
routes. The shipper confirms the transportation capacity and the shipping office clerk
receives an identifier for each transport. For truck ordering it may be useful to check
the expected volume and weight per scheduled route (see the monitoring section
below).

Once the transportation has been confirmed by the shipper, the shipping office clerk
creates one TU for each route with the received identifier from the shipper and
assigns each TU to the route and a door used for this route in the system.

In exceptional cases, for example, if the customer raises the priority for the order, the
shipping office clerk unassigns the corresponding outbound delivery order from the
wave. Afterwards he or she manually assigns the outbound delivery order to a
different route and route schedule, and to a different wave.

4. Release the waves (EWM)

Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging and Loading 8


SAP Library

Upon the automatic wave release, the system creates warehouse tasks (WTs). The
system joins the WTs together into warehouse orders (WOs) to optimize the working
packages for the pickers. The WOs are used to pick the goods and move them to a
packing station. The WOs are assigned to different queues according to specific
criteria such as the activity area and the type of resource necessary to access the
storage bins. Within one WO, the WTs are sorted according to specific criteria such
as the pick path.

If no WTs can be created for some of the wave items (see the monitoring section
below), for example, due to insufficient stock, a warehouse clerk checks the log for
the wave release and the stock for the given outbound delivery order item. If
necessary, he or she triggers a pick denial or replenishment. Once the stock is
sufficient, the warehouse clerk releases the wave manually.

5. Pick the goods (EWM)

In this step a warehouse worker picks the goods and brings them to the packing
station. This step is carried out using an RF device.

The warehouse worker goes to the starting point for picking, chooses the equipment
necessary for the picking (for example, a vehicle and an RF device) and logs on as a
resource. The warehouse worker puts a wire basket as the pick-HU (not created in
the system yet) onto the vehicle. Each pick-HU has a permanent HU number and bar
code on it.

The warehouse worker receives the first WO of the queue he or she is assigned to on
his or her mobile device. He or she is prompted to create the pick-HU for this WO.
For this purpose he or she scans the bar code of the pick-HU.

He or she then drives to the first source bin of the first WT displayed on the RF
device, picks the required quantity of the product, and puts the product into the pick-
HU proposed by the system. To verify that the WT is carried out correctly, he or she
scans data such as source bin, product, pick-HU to verify the data and enters the
quantity. After all fields have been verified, the WT is confirmed, and the worker
proceeds with the execution of the next WT displayed on his or her RF device.

After the last WT of the WO is confirmed, the warehouse worker is prompted to bring
the pick-HU to the packing station. There he or she moves the pick-HU from the
resource to the packing station and confirms this step in the system.

He or she then returns to the starting point for picking to prepare the pick-HU for the
next WO.

If the picker finds a quantity smaller than the requested quantity in the storage bin, he
or she enters an exception code and records the quantity difference in the WT by
entering the quantity he or she has actually picked. With the confirmation, the system
reduces the stock in the current storage bin by the difference quantity and
automatically tries to create a new pick-WT from another storage bin. If possible, the
system adds the new WT to the current WO of the picker. If not, a new WO is created
for the WT and is assigned to a queue.

The exceptional situation that a new WT cannot be created, for example, because
there is no other stock of the product in the warehouse or only in a reserve storage
type, can be seen in the monitor. This requires manual interaction, for example,
triggering a pick denial or replenishment (see the monitoring section below).

Another possible procedure can be that the picker uses an exception to block the
storage bin and triggers an inventory counting to correct the quantity in the storage
bin as a whole.

Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging and Loading 9


SAP Library

When the last carton of a pallet is picked from the source bin, the empty pallet
remains at the source bin and is removed during the putaway of a new pallet into the
storage bin.

6. Pack the goods (EWM)

At the packing station, a warehouse worker packs the goods into shipping HUs (for
example, europallets) for each consolidation group. A consolidation group is used to
group the goods that should be packed and shipped together (for example, for one
specific customer and route). The packer can use the monitor to know when to start
packing for a certain consolidation group and what kind of packaging material to be
used (see the monitoring section below).

The packer takes a packaging material (for example, a europallet) and creates an
HU. He or she prints an HU identification label. He or she moves the goods from a
pick-HU to the shipping HU. He or she scans the pick-HU, the product to be
repacked, and the shipping HU. The system creates internally a WT for the
movement of the product from the pick-HU to the shipping HU and confirms it
immediately.

The empty pick-HU is deleted automatically upon the WT confirmation. The wire
baskets are returned later to the starting point.

Once a shipping HU has been completely packed (the HU is physically full or there
are no more open WTs for the consolidation group), it is weighed and an additional
label is printed. It contains HU information such as the customer, route, weight, and
volume. The packer confirms the completion of the shipping HU in the system. This
triggers the creation of an HU WT to move the HU to the staging area.

If the packer finds a quantity smaller than the requested quantity in the pick-HU, he or
she enters an exception code and records the quantity difference in the WT by
entering the quantity he or she has actually packed. The system corrects the stock in
the pick-HU with the confirmation of the difference. This exceptional case can be
seen in the monitor and requires manual interaction (see the monitoring section
below).

7. Stage the goods (EWM)

In this step a warehouse worker moves the shipping HUs to multiple staging areas.
This step is carried out using an RF device.

The warehouse worker chooses the equipment necessary for the staging (for
example, a vehicle and an RF device) and logs on as a resource. The worker picks a
shipping HU from the packing station and scans its ID. The system automatically
finds the open HU WT created upon completion of the shipping HU. The worker is
prompted to bring the shipping HU to a staging area. There he or she drops the
shipping HU and scans the staging bin, thus confirming the HU WT. He or she drives
back to the packing station to proceed with the next shipping HU.

8. A truck arrives at the checkpoint and drives to the door (EWM)

When the truck arrives, a checkpoint clerk chooses the TU with the external identifier
(a unique number assigned to the TU during creation). If the door assigned to the
truck is not free yet, the truck must wait. Once the door is free, the checkpoint clerk
advises the truck driver to drive to the assigned door. Assuming a small to medium
sized yard, the checkpoint clerk confirms the arrival of the truck at the door. This step
is necessary for the checkpoint clerk to see that the door is occupied.

Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging and Loading 10


SAP Library

For large yards it would be possible to have the arrival at the door confirmed
by the shipping office clerk in a separate step. In this case the checkpoint
clerk only confirms the arrival of the truck at the checkpoint.

9. Load the truck (EWM)

A warehouse worker begins with the loading from the staging area. This step is
carried out using an RF device.

The warehouse worker chooses the equipment necessary for the loading (for
example, a vehicle and an RF device) and logs on as a resource. The warehouse
worker picks a shipping HU from the staging area and scans its ID. The warehouse
worker loads the shipping HU onto the truck and scans the door bin. The system
automatically creates a WT for loading the TU assigned to this door and confirms it in
the same step. The warehouse worker proceeds with the next shipping HU until the
staging area is empty. He or she then goes to the shipping office. The shipping office
clerk checks that all delivery items have been loaded onto the truck and confirms the
completion of the loading.

If the warehouse worker loads an HU that is designated for a different route than the
route of the TU, he or she is notified by the system and can reverse the loading, if
necessary.

10. Post the goods issue and print the delivery notes and road waybill (EWM)

The shipping office clerk posts the GI for the TU. This triggers the printing of the
delivery note for each delivery and the road waybill for the TU.

The shipping office clerk hands over the delivery notes and road waybill to the truck
driver.

The goods issue is sent to SAP ERP where the billing can begin and an advanced
shipping notification (ASN) can be sent to the customer.

11. The truck leaves (EWM)

The truck leaves the door and the premises. The shipping office clerk confirms the
departure of the truck from the checkpoint and, therefore, from the door. This step is
necessary for the checkpoint clerk to see that the door is free.

For large yards it would be possible to have the departure from the
checkpoint confirmed separately by the checkpoint clerk.

2 Configuration of Outbound Process Using


Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging, and Loading

You use this process to configure the business process Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-
HU, Packing, Staging, and Loading [Page 5].

You can use this configuration process in the following warehouses in SAP Extended
Warehouse Management (EWM):

 Standard warehouse W001 with preconfigured business processes

This is the recommended way of getting started with EWM. For more information, see
the business scenario Warehouse Management with Preconfigured Processes
[External].

 Your own warehouse

To set up the preconfigured business processes in standard warehouse W001, implement all
configuration steps except the steps marked with Optional. These steps help you to
understand the configuration of the processes but do not require a manual activity.

To configure the processes in your own warehouse, implement all configuration steps. In the
steps marked with Optional, check if you need to adapt the existing entries to your own
warehouse and carry out changes as needed.

All configuration steps require activities in EWM unless the documentation explicitly tells you
to carry out an activity in SAP ERP.

2.1 Configuration of Sales Order Creation in SAP

Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging and Loading 17


SAP Library

ERP

You use this process to configure the creation of sales orders in SAP ERP.

Prerequisites
In SAP ERP, you have the standard ERP Customizing available.

In SAP ERP, you have a sales document type available that you want to use for sales orders
and a delivery document type that you want to use for the deliveries.

In this process we use sales document type OR and delivery document type LF for
configuration.

Process
1. Configuring Tax Calculation for Sales Orders in SAP ERP [Page 18]

2. Configuring Allowed Sales Areas for Sales Document Types in SAP ERP [Page 19]

3. Configuring Deactivation of Date Scheduling in SAP ERP [Page 20]

4. Configuring Document Types for Outbound Deliveries in SAP ERP [Page 21]

Result
You create sales orders with document type OR in SAP ERP. An outbound delivery is
automatically created with document type LF in SAP ERP.

2.1.1 Configuring Tax Calculation for Sales Orders


in SAP ERP

You use this procedure to configure a condition record for the calculation of the price
including tax during sales order creation.

Procedure
1. On the SAP Easy Access screen, choose Logistics Sales and Distribution
Master Data Conditions Select Using Condition Type Create .

2. Enter the condition type MWST and choose Enter.

3. Select the Domestic Taxes radio button, and continue.

DE 0 0 - - <Today’s 9999- A0
Date> 12-31

Result
You have created a condition record for condition type MWST and for the tax code A0 used for
price calculation during sales order creation in SAP ERP.

If you create a sales order in SAP ERP and you enter the amount without having a condition
record for condition type MWST, the system issues a pricing error.

2.1.2 Configuring Allowed Sales Areas for Sales


Document Types in SAP ERP

You use this procedure to configure the allowed sales area for the sales document types.

In this procedure, we use the sales order type OR and distribution channel 02.

Organization Channel Type

0001 Sales 02 Distribtn 01 Product OR Standard


Org. Channel Division Order
0001 02 01

Result
You have assigned the order type OR to distribution channel 02 so that the system proposes
the sales unit of measure maintained in the product master for distribution channel 02.

If you create a sales order with order type OR in SAP ERP, you must use distribution channel
02. As in the product master of the small and medium products, the sales unit of measure is
carton and the proposed unit of measure during sales order creation for such products is
cartons.

2.1.3 Configuring Deactivation of Date Scheduling


in SAP ERP

You use this procedure to deactivate the date scheduling during outbound delivery creation in
SAP ERP. This configuration is necessary as in the Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU,
Packing, Staging, and Loading, the date scheduling is based on routes in SAP Extended
Warehouse Management (EWM).

You can use this procedure to check the configuration of the document types and item types
for the following:

 Outbound delivery request:

Document in the outbound delivery process containing all relevant logistics data from
the initiator of the outbound delivery process.

The outbound delivery request is used to create an outbound delivery order.

 Outbound delivery order:

Document that contains all the relevant data required for triggering and monitoring the
complete outbound delivery process. This process starts with the first planning
activities for the outbound delivery and extends to the loading and shipping of the
goods.

2.2.2 Checking Determination of Document Types


and Item Types

You can use this procedure to check how the system determines the document types and
item types for outbound delivery order creation.

To separate the outbound business processes, the outbound delivery orders for this business
process are to be created with a special document type in SAP ERP. For the outbound
delivery request creation and the outbound delivery order creation in SAP Extended
Warehouse Management (EWM), the document type used in the ERP system (for example,
LF) must be mapped to the relevant EWM document type. The same applies to the item
types.

Procedure
1. Check the following entry in Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management
under Interfaces ERP Integration Delivery Processing Map Document Types
from ERP System to EWM :

Document Type from ERP Mapping Delivery Type – Document Type

LF OUTB

If you use another delivery type than LF, create the entries for your ERP delivery
type.

2. Check the following entries in Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management


under Interfaces ERP Integration Delivery Processing Map Item Types from
ERP System to EWM :

Document Type from Item Type from Document Mapping of ERP Item
ERP ERP Type Type

LF TAN OUTB ODLV

LF TATX OUTB OTXT

If you use another delivery type than LF or different item types, create the entries
for your ERP delivery type and item types accordingly.

Result
You have checked the determination of the document type and item types in EWM during
outbound delivery order creation.

You create an outbound delivery with document type LF and item type TAN in SAP ERP. The
outbound delivery order is created with document type OUTB and item type ODLV in EWM.

More Information
For more information, see the following:

2.2.3 Checking Determination of Date Types

Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging and Loading 25


SAP Library

You can use this procedure to check the configuration of the relevant date types for outbound
delivery requests and outbound delivery orders and the configuration of the delivery date
mapping from SAP ERP to SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM).

Procedure
1. Check the following entries in Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management
under Goods Issue Process Outbound Delivery Manual Settings Define
Document Types for Outbound Delivery Process :

Document Type Document Category Date Profile

OUTB FDO /SCWM/OUT_FD

OUTB ODR /SCWM/OUT_REQ

OUTB PDO /SCWM/OUT_PRD

2. Check the following entries in Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management


under Goods Issue Process Outbound Delivery Manual Settings Define Item
Types for Outbound Delivery Process :

Item Type Document Category Item Category Date Profile

ODLV FDO DLV -

ODLV ODR DLV /SCWM/OUT_REQ_DLV

ODLV PDO DLV /SCWM/OUT_PRD_DLV

OTXT FDO TXT -

OTXT ODR TXT -

OTXT PDO TXT -

For the item types OTXT (Text Item Outbound Delivery), no date profile is
required as these items are not relevant for warehouse activities and are only for
information purposes.

The date profile for the outbound delivery item type is not set as during delivery
processing, the system makes use of the profile for outbound delivery orders
instead. It makes sense only for some profiles to define them on outbound
delivery item type level. This is, for example, the case for the field control profile.

3. Check the date profiles as follows:

1. In Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management, choose Cross-


Process Settings Delivery Processing Dates/Times Define Date Profiles
.

2. Select a date profile, for example, /SCWM/OUT_REQ.

3. Choose Date/Time Types in the dialog structure.

4. Check the following entries:

Date/Time Type Inactive

Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging and Loading 26


SAP Library

ETRANSPORT -

ETRANSPORTPL -

TCDLOCGI X

TDELIVERY -

TDELIVERYF X

TOUTYARD -

5. Repeat the steps 2-4 for each date profile mentioned in the previous steps,
for example for date profile /SCWM/OUT_REQ.

Since the date/time type TDELIVERY is active in profile /SCWM/OUT_REQ, the


corresponding date and time can be set to the planned delivery date from SAP
ERP.

Since the TDELIVERY date/time type is also active in profile /SCWM/OUT_PRD,


the date and time can be filled in the outbound delivery orders based on the data
in the outbound delivery requests.

4. Check the following entry in Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management


under Interfaces ERP Integration Delivery Processing Map Date Types from
ERP System to EWM :

The mapping below is defined to set the planned delivery date to the date of
type TDELIVERY in the outbound delivery request.

Date/Time Type from ERP Document Type End Date

WSHDRLFDAT OUTB TDELIVERY

Result
You have checked that the planned delivery date from SAP ERP is mapped to the planned
delivery date in the outbound delivery order.

The request type is not the document type for outbound delivery requests. It is
the request type for the route determination, so the document type for which the
route determination is requested. Therefore in this case, it is the document type
for the outbound delivery order.

9. Check the following entries for each route and the corresponding legs on the
Departure Calendar tab page:

Result
You create an outbound delivery with document type LF for customer CUST002 and with the
current date and time as planned delivery date and time in SAP ERP. Then the route
W001_CU002 is determined during outbound delivery order creation in SAP Extended
Warehouse Management (EWM). The route determination determines the planned out-of-
yard date and updates the outbound delivery order accordingly. If the current time is before 6
a.m. this Tuesday, the planned out of yard date is determined for 16:00h of this Tuesday. If
the current time is after 6 a.m. this Tuesday, the planned out-of-yard date is determined for
16:00h Tuesday in a week.

You can simulate the route determination on the SAP Easy Access screen for Extended
Warehouse Management under Master Data Shipping and Receiving Route

2.2.6 Configuring Determination of Staging Areas


and Doors

You use this procedure to configure the determination of the staging areas and the doors
during outbound delivery order creation.

Prerequisites
You have already checked the route determination (see Checking Determination of Routes
[Page 28]) and the determination of the warehouse process type (see Checking
Determination of Warehouse Process Types [Page 27]). This is necessary as the staging
area and door determination is based on the determination of the route and the warehouse
process type.

Procedure
1. Create the following entries on the SAP Easy Access screen for Extended
Warehouse Management under Settings Shipping and Receiving Staging Area
and Door Determination (Outbound) :

Warehouse Route Warehouse Staging Staging Staging Warehouse

for the outbound delivery order items during outbound delivery order creation in SAP
Extended Warehouse Management (EWM).

2.3 Configuring Automatic Creation and Release


of Waves

You use this procedure to configure the automatic creation and release of waves. If a valid
wave already exists, no new wave is created but instead the outbound delivery order items
are assigned to the existing wave. For the automatic release of the wave, a background job is
automatically scheduled during the creation of the wave to start at the release time defined in
the wave template of the wave.

For wave templates using the release method A (Automatic), SAP Extended
Warehouse Management (EWM) creates a job that automatically releases waves on
the release date and time set up in the wave template.

2.5 Configuring Alternative Process without


Packing Station

Instead of using the process to pick, pack, stage, and load the goods, you can pick, stage,
and load the goods without packing them at a packing station. In this alternative process, you
use a pallet and not a wire basket as pick-HU. The pick-HU is used as the shipping-HU. On
the way to the staging area, you bring the pallet to a shrink wrapper, but this step is not
represented in the system.

You use this procedure to replace process type P211 with process type P212, and to adapt
the process-oriented storage control to avoid the packing step at the packing station.

This alternative is not described in the process steps and test case.

Procedure
1. Check the process type. In Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management,
choose Cross-Process Settings Warehouse Task Define Warehouse Process
Type , and check the following entry:

Data)

Result
You have setup the exception codes DIFW and DIFB:

 Exception code DIFW can be used in case a picker or a packer finds a smaller
quantity as the requested quantity in the storage bin or picking HU.

 Exception code DIFB can be used if the bin the picker should pick from is not
accessible and should be blocked for further picks.

You confirm a pick warehouse order (see the business context) on the SAP Easy Access
screen for Extended Warehouse Management under Execution Logon to RF
Environment. . The system allows you to enter the exceptions DIFW and DIFB in the
corresponding picking and packing radio frequency (RF) transactions and to report difference
quantities.

In case of a difference reported with exception code DIFW, the difference quantity is posted to
the difference account (see the internal process code and the difference category). The
quantity is handled as an inventory difference.

In case of a difference reported with exception code DIFB, the system keeps the difference
quantity in the source storage bin (see internal process code and difference category) and
blocks the source bin (see the status management action identification (STM Action ID) and
the business transaction (BTran)).

You can test the exception code setup in Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management
under Cross-Process Settings Exception Handling Test Configuration of Exception
Codes .
