IMG Path – SPRO -> IMG -> SCM Extended Warehouse Management -> Extended Warehouse Management -> Goods Issue Process -> Outbound Delivery -> Define Document Types for Outbound Delivery Process.

  • Create condition table with the required fields using the below mentioned node:

After creating condition tables, create access sequences, condition types, determination procedure and maintenance group using the subsequent nodes.

Please note that in this case goods issues need to be posted after the completion of loading.

IMG Path – SPRO -> IMG -> SCM Extended Warehouse Management -> Extended Warehouse Management -> Cross-Process Settings ->Delivery-Warehouse Request ->Actions->Configure Actions Scheduling->Create Condition tables.

  • Maintain condition record using the t-code: /SCWM/DLVPPFC.

Testing:

  • Outbound delivery: 80004053 is created.

  • In the delivery screen, create warehouse task manually by clicking on CREATE button and then SAVE.

  • Confirm the Warehouse order using the transaction code:/SCWM/TO_CONF.

  • By confirmation of the warehouse task, picking and packing status marked as completed.
