Hello Sri,

ASN is Advanced Shipping Notification, this is one type of purchase order confirmation.

To answer your question, we need to know the background. In which way your client is using Split ASN?

Hi Arif,

Thanks for ur reply.

I am not an MM consultant, I am basically a BW consultant. I know in general what an ASN means (vendor conformation, if I am correct). I just came to know in a meeting that the client I am currently working for does not allow split ASN's. So just what to know what that means.

Hello Sri,

You are right, but sometime without background or full context it is really hard to give our inputs.

In your scenario, there may be the case that when client is receiving ASN data system should not create more than one inbound delivery for the ASN infromation. in other words, ASN quantity should not be splitted to make two different inbound delivery. just my guess.

If you can find the complete scenario then it will help us to provide accurate/related information.

Hi,

Does that mean that one vendor conformation can have only one Goods reciept against it and one ASN can not be split into muliple GR's? I mean whole quantity in vendor confirmation should be shipped once or else remaining quantity is rejected.

(or)

Does it mean that one schedule line can have only one vendor confirmation or ASN?

Thanks,

Hi Ranganath,

I am very sorry, I did not get you

what does "one" mean? Is it ASN being split into multiple GR's or one PO schedule line being split into multiple vendor confirmations or ASN?

Thanks,

Hi Sri,

for ex po qty is 100 then the confirmation should be for 100 only not into 2 confirmations as 50 & 50.

the confirmation qty for a po cannot be split.

Hope it is quite clear

Hi Ranganath,

Got you, One PO schedule line can have only one ASN i.e. PO schedule line can not be split into multiple ASN.

Thanks for the reply.

Hi Arif,

Is ASN different from Inbound delivery? I am under the assumption that vendor confirmation, ASN or Inbound delivery means the same.

Thanks,

Hello Sri,

As per my understanding, yes. ASN is shipping data from vendor from supplier and based on that we are creating inbound delivery.

let me give you example, vendor sends shipping informatioin for suppling good through fax. This is ASN (Advanced shipping notification) or confirmation from vendor, now can we consider this fax as inbound delivery? No, we need to create inbound delivery in the system using this shipping data. Now a days, this shipping data is coming throgh EDI which helps to create inbound delivery directly.

Regarding Split ASN, try to get more informaiton from your client so we can give input accurately instead of just talking around.

Hope this helps.

Dont worry Sri,

Your words are more than points.

Initially it was a charm to get more and more points, but later on I started getting good responses and positive feedback from the SDNers like you that are encourages me more than points.

One last question, So how is ASN created or recorded into system, is it manually entered. Inbound delivery is automatically created through EDI.

So when a vendor sends confirmation we need or system need to create one ASN and one Inbound delivery against it, am I correct Arif

Hello Sri,

ASN is supplier's information for shipping. it can be through fax or email or some other communcation mode. Now inbound delivery is mainly meant for palnning purpose within our organization which includes space management, resource management (man power, equipement etc), material planning.

Now a days, as most of the suppliers are using ERP system and taking advantage of latest technology, they are integrated with each other to exchanges data using electronic interfaces. This is called EDI (Electronic Data interchange). in SAP, there is IDoc functionality which helps to create/post document in the system using the external data so when vendor sends their data through electronic medium it helps to post inboun delivery automatically in our SAP system. This is mainly technical integration between two systems.

Incase, gettting shipping information other than EDI (fax, verbal confirmation, email) we need to create inbound delivery manually.

Hope this helps.
