Delivery Change Management

Hello,

our customer has different Quality standards (Q1, Q2, Q3) for the same material but with different material numbers depending on the quality. When they order something they have to enter one material number. Once the delivery arrives they might have to change the material to a different Quality as example the Q1 from the Order to Q2 quantity in the delivery.

Right now I am trying to figure out the best way to do it. I tried to change the delivery in VL32N but it says 'Delivery distributed, only display'. From what I can recall, you should be able to at least change things like quantity etc. In the customizing the change of the delivery is allowed. What am I missing and what is the best way to exchange the material in the delivery? Thanks a lot!

Hello jan_1904

As of SAP S/4HANA 1709 delivery changes after replication to EWM are supported:

S/4HANA what's new: Change LE Delivery after Replication to EWM

SAP Help: Processing of Outbound Deliveries

However I don't think you'll be able to change a material number. Your best bet is to update the material number on the purchase order before creating and distributing an inbound delivery.

Question: Why doesn't the customer use one material number for all quality standards and manage them on batch level? That seams like more natural approach.

Best regards

I already tried it but when I update the quantity in the order (more or less than before) but it still won't update in the EWM Delivery. Do I have to reject the delivery first and create a new one to get the order to update? But if I have to do it like this it technically isn't updating orders bu rather creating a new one...

Hello jan_1904

First let's make sure that delivery change management is really active. Check the header data of the delivery, "Processing" tab

If change management is active, then you should be able to modify the delivery quantity and that modification is immediately distributed to EWM after the delivery is saved in ERP. However it's possible that the change processing is stuck in qRFC queues. So, check SMQ1 in ERP and SMQ2 in EWM for any processing errors.

Hi,

"our customer has different Quality standards (Q1, Q2, Q3) for the same material but with different material numbers depending on the quality."

Well, for sure not a solution SAP would recommend. And I see no way how this should be working properly in any process.

" I tried to change the delivery in VL32N but it says 'Delivery distributed, only display'."

Why make it so complicated? Just create the delivery and try to change the material before saving it - but at least in my system the material is greyed out - this is what you ordered, this is what you get.

"As of SAP S/4HANA 1709 delivery changes after replication to EWM are supported:"

Just to make sure: this refers to the ERP system being an S/4HANA system, this does not work if your ERP is still an ECC. That change management flag is there, but this is then only for classic decentral WM, isn't it?

And it is EWM. NOT eWM - Duh!

And if your question includes the word "transfer order" - do NOT tag the question with Extended Warehouse Management!

"our customer has different Quality standards (Q1, Q2, Q3) for the same material but with different material numbers depending on the quality."

I would rather go for a single material number here and manage quality standards on batch level.
