Returnable Package material

Hi Friends,

Need your help,

We purchase oil in drum and per pallet can hold 4 drums, after usage of oil we will send few drums and pallets back to vendor.

Questions I have :

Assumption :

1 Drum = 100 Lts

1. Do I need to create PO for Oil, drums and pallet, because while making receipt for 10,000 Lts of oil, system must understand I have received 100 drums and 25 pallets, there must not be any manual intervention in the process.

2. While returning, how I can handle partial return of empty Drums and pallets.

Thanks in Advance,

You can use HUM for this purpose.

In the inbound delivery based on your settings and master data system can:

- automatically pack the main items

- generate the packaging material items (drum & pallet in your case)

- post them to stock during GR.

You can achieve this by the use of nested handling unit (oil --> drum --> pallet).

Do the normal GR for oil and for drums, you need to do seprate ransaction and use the movement type 501 M.

For every GR of oil in drums you need to do 2 GR's one for oil and other for drums and when you need to send drums back then just do 502.

Also create drums as Returnable packing material type
