The functionality for packaging code checks for DG is currently integrated with Handling Unit Management, and the packaging material proposal for a material typically happens at the time of outbound delivery for a material, as per standard SAP functionality.
We have a requirement where the goods are packaged for delivery immediately after production, so that at the time of delivery, they are only shipped out.
They are packaged as per regulatory requirements immediately after production, and the packaging checks have to be done right here at this stage to ensure the material is packed as per regulations.
Has anybody worked on such a scenario before? If yes, could you please share your insights on how this scenario can be handled in SAP?
Thank you for your time!
I haven't worked in such scenario, but it might be possible in the following way,
In DG check, we have to check the particular material is allowed to transport in the intended way & intended quantity to a region in a particular packaging. This is just the outline of logic.
Using this we can do DG check in
In you case, the logic is that, during the production of the material itself, DG checks for the mode of transport, country, & quantity has to be checked. that means before the production is started, the customer finalise the exact material quantity, mode of transport, transit route..?
In that case, you can implement DG checks in Sales documents like, http://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp60_sp/helpdata/en/de/5170b24c4b11d18a110000e816ae6e/frameset.htm
so that, DG check is already done for the DG material to be delivered. once the material is produced. Once delivery or shipment is created, you print required DG documents
Hope this helps a little,
