Define Product Group Types

In this IMG activity, you define product group types. You can then assign values to these under Define Product Groups.

Product group types and product groups serve to group products of the same kind. You define a product group type for the criterion with which the product groups are to be formed.

You can assign product group types to a product in the product master on the Properties 2 tab page.

BAdI for Single-Order Staging

After implementing the BAdi, system calculates the proposed quantity for single-order staging material with the following logic:

  1. Call the standard logic, look up the open required quantity.
  2. If the open required quantity is > 0, exactly the open required quantity is proposed for staging.
  3. If the open required quantity is <= 0 , the system will propose 0 as staging proposal.
