I am working on a printing industry project. Need your help on mapping the below mentioned scenario:
Customer places an order of 5000 copies of stationary (Material - X). This stationary is somewhat special. every printed copy is having a unique number. And the challenge is every copy should be delivered to separate ship-to-party. So there will be 5000 ship-to-party addresses also. There will be only one invoice as Sold-to-party, Payer and Bill-to-party will always be one.
Please suggest a solution. Creating 5000 sales order line items or creating 5000 deliveries can be a solution, but managing these much documents is a mess.
Note: Frequency of such orders is very high. And proper tracking should be there for every delivered copy.
Appreciate your valuable suggestions.
Thanks & Regards,
I tried for possibilites with some ideas, but due to closely related to SD - better to post it also in SD forum.
But I believe these below links will definitely help to give some idea about your requirement. Please check the below posts on SDN.
Well, your requirements are a bit vague. However, when you wish to enter a sales order for a single Material, but you have to keep track of every single of the widgets individually, the standard SAP solution is serialization
This does not, however, solve the issue of '5000 shiptos'. I have great difficulty understanding this concept in a manufacturing company, it sounds more like a retail environment, or that you are acting as a third-party vendor.
