Handling Instructions and Packing Instructions in Fiori App „Pack Outbound Deliveries” F3193
In this post, I collected some useful information how to display Handling Instructions and Packing Instructions in Fiori App „Pack Outbound Deliveries” F3193.
Note: In SAP S/4HANA 2020 EWM systems, implement SAP Note 3320048 – “Pack Outbound Deliveries app: Packing instructions text is not displayed” to fully use this feature.
As per Help Page Feature Comparison for Packing, the Fiori App supports the display of:
- Packing instructions
- Handling instructions
In this example we are packing stock for an Outbound Delivery Order, and the item and the document itself have instructions. In the Pack Outbound Deliveries app, select the Work Center, Storage Bin and Pack mode (Advanced).
On the next screen, enter the PDO number in field „Reference Number”.
A popup may appear immediately to create a Handling Unit. Select e.g. CARTON-L from the dropdown list, and press button Create (if you simply close the popup you can create the HU later on).
Notice that the „Packing Instructions” field is still empty.
On the left side, enter the Product to pack in field „Product / Access Code”. System will populate the text in „Handling Instructions” and in the „Packing Instructions” fields at this step.
Customizing of delivery texts:
Extended Warehouse Management > Cross-Process Settings > Delivery – Warehouse Request > Text Management > Define Text Profiles with Access Sequences
In Text Profile /SCDL/OUT_PRD (Header) make sure to have Text Type 0001
In Text Profile /SCDL/OUT_PRD_DLV (Item) make sure to have Text Type PACK
Customizing Work Center:
Extended Warehouse Management > Master Data > Work Center > Define Work Center
In the corresponding Work Center, Activity „PACK” must be specified.
Setting up the Activity itself:
Extended Warehouse Management > Master Data > Activity Areas > Activities > Define Activities for Activity Areas
If does not exist yet, create the entry (New Entries):
Create assignment between Activities and Text Identifiers:
Extended Warehouse Management > Master Data > Activity Areas > Activities > Assign Activities to Text Identifiers
Two entries should be created:
- /SCWM/DLVH with ID 0001 for the Fiori field „Packing Instructions”
- /SCWM/DLVI with ID PACK for the Fiori field „Handling Instructions”
Testing the Pack Outbound Deliveries app
The texts are coming from the Outbound Delivery Order header and item data. To test above customizing setup, create texts manually in the PDO.
For „Packing Instructions”, create a text with Text Type 0001 in /SCWM/PRDO, select the header, switch to Text tab, with button Create. Open SAPscript to enter the random text, then save the change.
For „Handling Instructions”, create a text with Text Type PACK in /SCWM/PRDO, select the item, switch to Text tab, with button Create. Open SAPscript to enter the random text, then save the change.
