You have to activate empties managment, so it is not in customizing as default. Please read SAP online help carefully:


Implementation Considerations

You can only use Empties Management if you have activated the Enterprise Add-On EA-CP in Customizing in the IMG activity Activate SAP ECC Extensions.

In order to be able to use the bill of material for Empties Management in Materials Management, you must set up the sales bill of material Type 5, Alternative 1.


After the activation, you have to do the config in MM, SD, etc.

Please go through SAP online help step by will find the config under "Prerequisites". For instance, in case of MM:



- You have activated Empties Management for Materials Management in Customizing for Materials Management under Purchasing > Purchase Order > Empties Management > Activate Empties Management.
