You have to defined one or more package types.


While doing the delivery process assigning the material with the suitable packing material with correct quantity by manually will be muddled sometimes (most of the times), to avoid this SAP has provided a solution. By using these you can pack Number of different materials with suitable packing material with single click.

STEP 1: Create a Packing Instruction (single level)                T.CODE: POP1

You can give your own packing instruction here.

Here the first line represents the item level; the second one is the Item category.

By default the first line will be the packing material. Type the Packing material code.

  1. M      Material(FERT)
  2. P       Packaging materials(VERP)
  3. I         subordinate packing instruction
  4. R       Reference material
  5. T        Text item(TATX)

Target Quantity:  it represents the total quantity to be packed in that particular packing material. It is nothing but according to the customer need or according to the business process the packing quantity is made.

Minimum Quantity: There should be at least certain numbers of material to be packed in the packing material.

EX: Let us assume you receive an order for 550 nos.

If the target quantity is 500 and minimum quantity is 100 while doing packing only 500 will be get packed. 50 numbers remains unpacked. (100 or more than 100 are allowed to pack).

If the target quantity is 500 and minimum quantity is not maintained or left blank. While doing packing you can pack 550 quantities in two boxes

The first one contains 500 and the second will have 50.

Rounding Quantity:

Let us take a cotton box which has a capacity to hold 500 no’s of the finished goods, and it is further going to pack in pallet. The pallet has a capacity to load 10 cotton boxes.

Now you receive a customer order for 4600, which has to be sending in pallet. If you maintain the rounding quantity as 10 then system will not allow packing the pallet. The reason is

  1. Each cotton box can have 500 no’s so {(4500/500) =9} only nine cotton box will be there. So it will not allow packing the pallet.

If you not maintain are left blank the rounding quantity, system will allow packing the pallet irrespectively the number of boxes not exceeding the Target Quantity.

Unit of measure: In sales you have different unit of measures according to the needs. Kindly make sure the units of measure of the materials you enter are correct. 

Note:  The Target Quantity is a Mandatory Field whereas the Minimum Quantity and Rounding Quantity are Optional Fields.

Kindly maintain the check profile as 01(SAP Standard.) in admin data.

STEP2: Create Determination Record                  T.CODE: POF1

Select determination type as SHIP.

     Enter the material and Packing instruction which we created in POP1. You can also maintain alternate packing instructions.

By clicking the packing instruction icon above the valid date field, you can cross verify the selected packing instruction is correct or not.save and exit

Create a sale order and then do the delivery processes, in delivery click the packing icon

Click auto packing icon.

The material is packed in the carton box.and handling unit number will get generated.

To see the ordinal status of packing, click the total content tab.

The Number "0" represents the packing material and "1" is the material. Each carton box contains 10 nos of the material.

Click back button and check the number of packages in the delivery overview screen.
