Configuration steps for automatic packaging

By Bageerath Cheryala, Answerthink

Automatic packing has some typical configuration and master data settings, see below:

1.       Maintain number ranges for handling units, menu path SPRO à Logistics Execution à Shipping à Packing à Define number ranges for Handling Units.  

2.       Delivery type should be activated with Automatic Packing, menu path SPRO à Logistics Execution à shipping à Deliveries à define delivery types  

 

3.       Define packaging material types Menu Path SPRO à Logistics Execution à Shipping à Packing à Define packaging material types.

4.       Define material groups for packaging materials, menu path: SPRO à Logistics Execution à Shipping à Packing à Define material groups for packaging materials.

5.       Define allowed packaging materials, menu path: SPRO à Logistics Execution à Shipping à Packing à Define allowed packaging materials.

Along with these basic settings we also need to configure in handling unit management module for automatic packing.

6.       Maintain packing transaction profile, menu path: SPRO à Logistics General à Handling Units Management à Automatic Packing à Maintain packing transaction profile. “T code: OVHU2

Select the transaction profile “0002 – Outbound Delivery” and go for details. Check “start automatically” in the details screen as shown below.

Also maintain the determination procedure for packing instructions as shown in the above screen.  

7.       Determination procedure for Packing Instructions. Menu path SPRO à Logistics General à Handling Units Management à Automatic Packing à determination of packing instructions.

Handling units work based on the condition technique, configure all necessary config settings for condition technique to work appropriately.

I used the procedure as “ZAU001 - Auto Pack Ref Material” and determination type as “ZSHP - Auto Packing Ref Mat”

Access sequence that I used is ZSHP with a condition table “499 - Reference material for materials packed in same way”  

8.       Maintain the master data for the packing instructions “t code: POP1”, menu path: SAP Easy Access à Logistics à Central functions à Handling Unit Management à Master data à Packing Instructions à Create/change/display.  

9.       Further maintain packing instruction determination record. “T code: POF1”, Menu path: SAP Easy Access à Logistics à Central functions à Handling Unit Management à Master data à packing instruction determination record à create/change/display.  

10.   Final master data settings need to be done in material master data under basic data tab and plant/general data tab for finished goods and also for packaging materials.  

These are the 10 important steps to configure automatic packing during delivery processing.
