This blog provides an functional overview and use case for post goods receipts using custom Fiori (SAPUI5) app. As I said functional design there are no technical details mentioned here to build the app.
If you think about why there is a need for custom app when we already have standard app provided by SAP. I have explained in detail below what is the business case.
In our business scenario we receive over 500+ small packages containing high tech equipment from the field offices to our central warehouse. This app provides great mobility to our warehouse clerks by accessing Fiori app using tablets or smart phones. So our business team came up with new requirements.
Here are following additional enhancements and business processes covered in this custom Fiori app.
Goods receipt with reference to stock transport order as well as purchase order
Goods receipt without reference
Enable scanning functionality using code128/QRCODE to scan material numbers / FedEx tracking
Enhanced screen design to enter partial and full quantity
Increase mobility in warehouse receiving area to access Fiori using tablets or smart phones (iOS)
