This document explains design concept of how to use scanning of outbound shipment barcode to complete putaway at receiving plant for a group of replenishment deliveries created under a single outbound shipment

Goods Receipt using Outbound Shipment

The Outbound Shipment under consideration is only those that contain outbound deliveries of replenishment deliveries of Stock Transport Orders (STO)

Goods receipt can be done in PC using the following documents

·         Purchase Order.

·         Production Order.

·         Stock Transport Order.

·         Inbound Delivery.

·         Outbound Delivery (In case of STO).

·         Inbound Shipment.

Goods receipt can be done in RF HH (Radio Frequency Hand Held) using the following documents

·         Inbound Delivery.

·         Inbound Shipment.

This paper describes the design and actual successful implementation of a process of doing Goods Receipt with respect to outbound shipment for replenishment deliveries which is not available in Standard SAP either in a PC or RF HH Transaction.

The Design was approached with a philosophy of minimum developments and maximum Standard SAP.

Scenario: Outbound shipment for many outbound deliveries of stock transport Orders from Plant A to Plant B in the same company code.

The assumption is outbound shipment is PGIed

Design Step:

1.    Create a SAP Standard Output type SPED to create inbound deliveries automatically when  outbound deliveries are PGIed( Refer Note 965176)

2.    In any document that is printed and sent along with deliveries, print the outbound shipment document number as barcode for it to be scanned at the receiving Plant.

3.    Since SPED is used outbound delivery number is captured in the field External Number (LIKP-LIFEX) of the inbound delivery.

4.    Develop a small RF HH TCode to scan the outbound shipment number which will list all relevant Inbound deliveries for putaway (The table SHP_IDX_EXIB Contains the inbound delivery VBELN for outbound delivery LIFEX). Choose one inbound delivery at a time and on selection design the program to call LM71 (GR with inbound delivery), with the inbound delivery prepopulated.

5.    Once Step 4 is complete, use all the possibilities of LM71 Like generate TO, Confirm TO, Check if any TOs are open and even Post GR.

The only area which requires some development is to scan outbound shipment to list all inbound deliveries and call LM71. The 2 can be done in a single Custom RF TCode.
