    Hi Sankalp,

    HANDLING UNITS CONFIGURATION:

     

    The SAP Handling Unit Management system allows you to manage the entire movement of the handling units and the materials they contain rather than tracking each material individually.

    This paper is for the HUM Delivery although some of the contents is related to Inventory under the Logistics General modules.

    A handling unit is a physical unit that consists of the packaging materials (load carrier / packaging material) and the goods contained therein. A handling unit is always a combination of materials and packaging materials. All the information contained in the material items, such as batches and serial numbers, is always available by way of the handling units.

    Handling units can be nested, meaning that you can also create new handling units from several handling units as often as you like.

    Handling units have unique, scannable identification numbers that can be formed according to standards such as EAN 128 or SSCC.

    Figure 1: Handling unit example

    Structure

    The handling unit object contains the following attributes:

    • Identification number

    • Dimensions

    • Weight

    • Volume

    • Status

    • Materials and quantities

    • Packaging materials

    • Packing instructions

    A handling unit consists of a handling unit header and handling unit items. For identification purposes, it is given a unique number.

    Handling unit header

    The header data of a handling unit is divided in the following way:

    • Weight/Volume/Dimensions

    • General data

    • Means-of-transport data

    • Additional data

    • Output determination procedure

    For more information about each of these detailed points, see Editing detailed data for handling units.

    Status

    The handling unit is linked to general status management. In this way, the various physical states (planned or implemented) and other attributes (weighed, loaded, blocked or posted goods issue) of handling units can be documented.

    You can use the HU_ST_INIT user parameter when you create handling units without object reference to set which initial status the handling unit is to have when it is created.

    If you want to implement a status of your own, you can define a user-specific procedure for the packaging material type (see also Define Packaging Material Types).

    Hi Sankalp

     

    Handling Unit Management

     

    Purpose

     

    You can use Handling Unit Management (HUM) to reflect packing-based logistics structures in the SAP System. Using this method, you track the movements of entire handling units and the materials they contain rather than tracking each material individually.

     

    When you base logistics processes on handling units, goods movements processing is made easier, which in turn optimizes all logistics operations. This simplified processing includes the existing packing function in shipping and warehouse processing in the Warehouse Management system, which is expanded here.

     

    Features

     

    In the system, the handling unit (HU) expands on the shipping unit. Handling units can be nested, which means that you can create new handling units from several handling units as often as you like. At the material item level, HUs contain the complete material identification, the quantity, and, in the case of serial numbers, the respective object list. Handling units have unique, scannable identification numbers that can be developed according to standards such as EAN 128 or SSCC.

     

    Handling units contain all inventory management information of the materials they contain that are maintained in Inventory Management. There are also status messages that you can call up at any time that indicate whether a handling unit is only planned or if the ship-to party has been notified of the arrival of this handling unit, or whether it is in the warehouse or has already been posted to goods issue. The integrated history function also records each business process in the life cycle of each handling unit, meaning that you can track the handling unit’s path and development at any time.

     

    In HU-managed storage locations, all goods movements are executed through the specification of the respective HUs, and Inventory Management is performed through the handling units. If you are not working with HU-managed storage locations, you can use handling units (without stock information) as before in the delivery and in the shipment.

     

    In HU-managed storage locations, materials can be managed in HUs only. Mixed stock (stock made up of packed and non-packed materials within the same storage location) is not supported. HUs can also be managed in interim storage types. Unpacking a material from an HU means that the stock of the material is posted to a storage location that is not HU-managed.

     

     

     

    If you call up normal material movements in connection with an HU-managed storage location, a delivery is created, rather than a direct material posting, which has been the procedure up to this point.

     

    Handling units are unique at client level in at least one system. Using an indicator at client level (see Unique Identification of Handling Units), you can control whether you are going to work with the HU functions. Since the handling unit is a physical unit, the central logistics processes are controlled through the input of the handling unit identification. These processes include putaway, picking, and stock transfers, as well as goods receipts and goods issues.

     

    A handling unit’s mobility can be limited if quality checks are active. Changes in the stock category caused by a quality inspection are made using a posting change in the handling unit.

     

    There is also a report available that you can use to find and display handling units using different selection criteria such as material, packing instruction, or storage location.

     

    Although the handling unit is basically a unit that remains constant in the system, you can change it by repacking the materials it contains. All the packing functions, such as packing, repacking, and unpacking, are completely supported by the handling unit function. In this way, handling units can be created in production, during goods receipt, or in the packing areas of the warehouse. If you have automatic packing, the handling unit is created from the packing proposals defined in the system (from the packing instructions, for example).

     

    Handling Unit

     

    Definition

     

    A handling unit is a physical unit that consists of the packaging materials (load carrier / packaging material) and the goods contained therein. A handling unit is always a combination of materials and packaging materials. All the information contained in the material items, such as batches and serial numbers, is always available by way of the handling units.

     

    Handling units can be nested, meaning that you can also create new handling units from several handling units as often as you like.

     

    Handling units have unique, scannable identification numbers that can be formed according to standards such as EAN 128 or SSCC.

     

    Structure

     

    The handling unit object contains the following attributes:

     

    Identification number

    Dimensions

    Weight

    Volume

    Status

    Materials and quantities

    Packaging materials

    Packing instructions

    A handling unit consists of a handling unit header and handling unit items. For identification purposes, it is given a unique number.

     

    Handling unit header

     

    The header data of a handling unit is divided in the following way:

    The items of a handling unit can consist of material items, packaging materials or other handling units that appear in an overview. For more information about this overview, see the Contents section of Editing detailed data for handling units.

     

    To access the item data of an individual handling unit, select the handling unit concerned and choose Goto ® Detailed HU data ® Contents.

     

    Integration

     

    Handling units can be used in all processes within the supply chain

     

     

    Packaging Materials

     

    Definition

     

    Packaging materials are intended to enclose or hold together the materials that are to be packed. In other words, the material that is to be packed can be packed into or onto the packaging material. The packaging material can be a load carrier. The most important packaging materials include crates, boxes, containers, wire baskets, and pallets.

     

     

     

    Use

     

    You have to maintain the material master data for each packaging material you want to use. When creating material master records for packaging materials, enter either material type VERP (packaging) or a customer-specific material type that you have already set in Customizing. Material type VERP contains additional packing-relevant fields ( Sales: General/Plant Data screen). You can use the field selection to make the additional fields available for input for all of the material types.

     

    The gross weight and the volume that you enter in the material master have special significance for packing. When you create a handling unit (HU), the system automatically copies the packaging material’s master data and uses the gross weight and volume as the packaging material‘s tare weight and tare volume.

     

     

     

    The tare weight and tare volume refer to the gross weight and gross volume of the packaging material. In the case of a container, the tare weight is the weight of the unloaded container (the total weight less the weight of the goods and packaging materials that are packed in the container).

     

    Structure

     

    If you choose the Sales: General/Plant Data view in the material master data of the packaging material, you can maintain the following data on the Packaging material data section of the screen:

     

    Packaging material type

    The packaging material type is a grouping of packaging materials with several control parameters, which is defined in Customizing for packing and which controls the following:

     

    Sorting in the handling unit display, so that the packaging materials can be displayed in order of size, for example.

    An output determination procedure in which handling unit outputs can be defined

    A packaging material category, which subdivides the packaging materials For example, in handling units with a packaging material category of means of transport, it dictates that additional fields, such as Driver and Alternate driver are available for input.

    A plant determination rule that defines, in delivery processing, the plant from which the packaging material is to be debited if delivery items are created from handling units in the delivery.

    Whether delivery items are to be generated for the packaging material and if so, under which conditions

    Number assignment for handling units

    Whether the packaging material’s tare weight is variable

     

     

    If this indicator is blank, it means that when the total weight of a handling unit changes, the loading weight of the handling unit is determined by taking the total weight less the packaging material’s tare weight.

     

    If this indicator is selected, it means that when the total weight of a handling unit changes, the tare weight of the handling unit is determined by taking the total weight less the loading weight.

     

    Material group packaging-material

    The material group packaging material is a grouping parameter that can be used to group materials that need similar packaging materials. For example, material group 005 can group small parts that are to be packed in small packages.

     

     

     

    You can maintain the material group packaging material for all materials that you want to pack. In other words, this field can be maintained for all materials. All other fields given here can only be maintained for packing materials (material type VERP).

     

    Allowed packing weight

    In this field, you can enter a maximum total weight for a handling unit. If the allowed weight for packing is reached, a system message to this effect appears and further packing operations are carried out using a new handling unit, if necessary.

     

    Allowed packing volume

    In this field, you can enter a maximum loading volume for a handling unit. If the allowed volume for packing is reached, a system message to this effect appears and further packing operations are carried out in a new handling unit, if necessary.

     

    Stackability factor

    The stackability factor indicates how many items of packaging material, such as pallets, can be stacked on top of one another. It is not a control and is therefore for information purposes only.

     

    Filling level

    The filling level is the percentage to which a handling unit should be filled. It is not a control and is therefore for information purposes only.

     

    Excess weight tolerance

    In this field, you can enter a percentage tolerance limit, up to which the allowed packing weight of a handling unit can be exceeded.

     

    Excess volume tolerance

    In this field, you can enter a percentage tolerance limit, up to which the allowed packing volume of a handling unit can be exceeded.

     

    Closed

    This field allows you to control whether the total volume will be changed or remain the same during packing.

     

     

     

    When packing an open pallet, the total volume changes.

     

    When packing a closed box, the total volume does not change.

     

    Integration

     

    Packaging materials are special types of materials that can be used for packing or for transporting goods. During packing, you must always specify a packaging material so that handling units can be created.

     

    Control Parameters

     

    Definition

     

    You can use control parameters to make settings in the SAP System for the packing and handling unit (HU) functions.

     

    Use

     

    In order for you to implement the packing function, your system administrator must maintain the following parameters for packing in the Implementation Guide (IMG):

    Define Number Ranges for Handling Units

    Define Packaging Material Types

    Define Allowed Packaging Materials

    Define Material Group for Packaging Material

    If you want to use the additional fields that are available for customer-defined modifications of the packing function, choose the Use Handling Unit Supplements activity.

     

    You can also maintain the following control parameters for packing in delivery processing:

    Packing Control by Item Category

    Define Requirements for Packing in the Delivery

    If you want to use the HU function in other processes besides delivery processing, you must ensure unique identification of handling units.

     

     

    Packing Instruction

     

    Use

     

    A packing instruction serves as a template for the creation of a handling unit. In a packing instruction, you define the materials and packaging materials to be packed in a handling unit.

     

    This enables you to reproduce specific customer packaging requirements in the system. You can also automate the packing process by creating a proposal for a handling unit, based on a packing instruction.

     

    Features

     

    Materials

    The packing instruction specifies which materials in which quantities are to be packed in one handling unit.

    Multi-level packing instructions

    The are two types of packing instructions: single-level, which describe only one packing level, and multi-level, which describe several packing levels ("nested" handling units). Multi-level packing instructions, therefore, contain subordinate packing instructions. If you want to create handling units with labels (identified HUs) for each packing level, you require one subordinate packing instruction per packing level.

    Using one packing instruction for several materials

    Many parts are packed in a similar way. If certain materials differ in only one characteristic (for example, color), having to maintain a packing instruction for each of them results in a considerable workload. Therefore, you can maintain a packing instruction in the material master which is used by several different materials. This reduces the amount of data to be maintained and also saves you a lot of time.

    Dimensions, weight and volume

    The dimensions, weight and volume of the handling unit are entered in the packing instruction. You can copy these entries to the HU proposal.

    The system copies the dimensions from the material master record and uses these values to calculate the weight and volume for the HU in the packing instruction. You now have the option of changing the calculated values. If you change the weight and volume data, the system copies them to the HU proposal as fixed values, without checking them. If you do not change the values, the system calculates the weight and volume entries for the HU proposal dynamically.

     

     

     

    Documents and short texts

    The packing instruction can be linked to documents in the Document Management System (DMS), enabling you to provide packing personnel with a detailed description of the packing procedure. Shorter descriptions can be entered as text items in the packing instruction.

    Items not relevant for HU

    Any item that you want to appear in the HU proposal but not in the final HU can be flagged as "Not relevant for HU". You use this flag, for example, when a material is only relevant for packing information and not for the HU itself, but its consumption must be mapped in the system.

    User-defined fields

    On the Administrative data tab page in the packing instruction, there are 5 user-defined fields, which also appear in the HU proposal and later in the HU. These fields are also included in the print program for the HU label, so that a certain value in a certain field triggers a certain action, for example, an asterisk on the printed label.

    Multi-level packing instructions

    There are two types of packing instructions: single-level, which describe only one packing level, and multi-level, which describe several packing levels ("nested" handling units). Multi-level packing instructions, therefore, contain subordinate packing instructions. If you want to create handling units with labels (identified HUs) for each packing level, you require one subordinate packing instruction per packing level.

    Status management

    You assign a packing status check profile to a packing instruction. In this check profile, you assign packing statuses to the possible ways in which an HU proposal can vary from the packing instruction. For each individual way that an HU proposal can vary from a packing instruction, you can define whether handling unit creation is permitted with this variance (variance from the target quantity, for example).

     

     

    Unique Identification of Handling Units

     

    Use

     

    Since a handling unit is a physical unit of packaging materials (load carrier / packaging material) and the goods contained therein, each handling unit must be clearly identifiable. This unique identification is made by using an identification number. The uniqueness of this identification number can be guaranteed within one client by using a number range object. You can only ensure that the identification number is unique system-wide if you assign an SSCC18.

     

    Prerequisites

     

    If you want to use the HU function outside of delivery processing, you must make the following settings in the Implementation Guide (IMG) for Handling Unit Management in the External Identification section:

     

    To ensure unique number assignment, select the Set Unique Number Assignment for HU Identification activity and set the HU ID unique indicator.

    To set the type of number assignment, choose the Define Number Assignment for Each Packaging Material Type activity.

    To set number assignment for HU identification by using a number range interval, choose the Number Range Maintenance for HU Identification activity.

    If you want to ensure a unique identification system-wide, use the activities in the SSCC Generation Acc. to EAN128 section.

     

    Handling Unit Management Within Logistics

    Purpose

    The following process chain provides an example of how Handling Unit Management can be set up for integrated implementation in the relevant SAP components.

     

    Prerequisites

    So that you can execute the packing functions using handling units, your system administration must first maintain all the packaging-relevant parameters in the Implementation Guide for Handling Unit Management (see also: Control parameters).

     

    Process Flow

    Sales and Distribution

    ·        You receive a sales order for certain materials. If you have a special agreement with the customer as to the packaging in which this material is to be delivered, you can reflect this agreement by using existing (or creating) packing instructions and a corresponding packing-instruction determination record. You can use this agreement at any point during packing. If the agreement is limited to this particular order, the information is created in the order in the form of a packing proposal.  This agreement is then also available during packing in repetitive manufacturing and in the delivery.

     

    ·        An availability check is run for the order items. If the system determines that the sales order cannot be filled by using the warehouse stock currently available, a requirement is created for production (in the case of in-house production) or for purchasing (in the case of external procurement).

     

    Production

    ·        A manufacturing order (such as a work order) is created for the respective material on the basis of the order requirement.

     

    ·        The raw material required for production is reserved (if it is in stock).

     

    Purchasing

    ·        If the raw material is not available in sufficient quantities, or if the material required for the sales order needs to be acquired externally, purchase orders are created from the requirements generated for material procurement.

     

    Goods receipt

    ·        The vendor notifies the goods recipient of the delivery of the goods by using a shipping notification that also contains the packaging data. The shipping notification generates an inbound delivery that includes the packing information from the shipping notification. If there is no EDI notification, the inbound delivery must be created and packed manually for the purchase order. The handling units are put away and the inbound delivery is posted for goods receipt.

     

    Quality Management

    ·        If the packing data is known in the inbound/outbound delivery, an inspection lot is created for these handling units and the stock is posted to quality inspection stock upon goods receipt/goods issue.

     

    ·        If the handling units have been put away in HU-managed storage locations, the handling units can be re-transferred since the stock is still managed through the handling unit.

     

    Warehouse Management

    ·        Handling units with raw materials are provided in time for production in accordance with the production requirement.

     

    Quality inspection

    ·        As soon as the quality inspection is complete, the stock in the handling units is posted to unrestricted-use stock or to scrap materials, depending on the usage decision.

     

    Inventory Management

    ·        If the production storage location is not HU-managed, the goods issue of the raw material takes place through an explicit stock posting or through the verification from production.

     

    ·        If the production storage location is HU-managed, the goods issue takes place either after successful staging of the materials or through explicit specification of the handling unit.

     

    Production

    ·        The production process is executed and the raw materials are used.

     

    ·        The handling units that result from this step are planned.

     

    ·        As a last step, the material that was produced is packed, either in production or after production. The handling units that are created in this way are confirmed as implemented. If there was no planning, the handling units are created directly as implemented handling units.

     

    Quality Management

    ·        If the status of the handling unit changes from planned to implemented (or changes during creation of implemented handling units from production), an inspection lot is created for the handling units.

     

    Inventory Management

    ·        The handling units are posted for goods receipt after verification from production (or in a separate step). Quality Management decides whether the handling unit is to be posted to unrestricted-use stock, inspection stock, or quality-inspection blocked stock.

     

    Shipping

    ·        An outbound delivery is created from the sales order

     

    Warehouse Management

    ·        Transfer orders are created for the materials to be delivered and the handling units are picked from stock. If only partial quantities of existing handling units are required, handling units are created for the picked materials.

     

    ·        The picked handling units are confirmed to the delivery.

     

    Shipping

    ·        The handling units that were picked can be repacked in the delivery. If there is a packaging proposal in the sales order, the delivery can be packed automatically in accordance with this proposal.

     

    ·        Goods issue is posted for the handling units.

     

    ·        The customer is informed through EDI about this delivery.

     

    The SAP Handling Unit Management system allows you to manage the entire movement of the handling units and the materials they contain rather than tracking each material individually. 

    This paper is for the HUM Delivery although some of the contents is related to Inventory under the Logistics General modules.
