Handling Unit management (HUM)

I have used the Diagrams in Document Intro’. Reason..I hope it is useful for a person when he is a first time Reader/ learner in HUM.

Overview of Handling Unit management (HUM) The term HU (Handling Unit) is the goods packing information used in the ERP Logistics area being available for setting under Logistics General in SAP ERP implementation guide. Although it was firstly developed to simple packing in the delivery area it has developed and then other functionalities have been made available like the inventory goods for packed stored material which is called HU managed storage location. The handling units functionalities are found in the own HU transactions, delivery transactions, WM (Warehouse Management) and EWM (Extended Warehouse Management) transactions (there is also the packing proposal in the Sales Order).

HU Overview The SAP ERP system sees a handling unit as a physical unit that consists of the packaging materials (load carrier / packaging material) and its goods. A handling unit is a combination of materials and packaging materials. All the information contained in the G.V.SHIVAKKUMAR - SAP MM WM LE Consultant

Handling Unit management (HUM) material items, such as batches and serial numbers, is available by way of the handling units. The handling unit in a non HU Storage Location differently from handling unit in HU Storage Location means that there is no control over the packed units, in other words the system does not control the inventory. It is mostly used there no need to keep packed quantity in-house but only the need for shipping the goods wrapped in packages, the handling units are then packed at the delivery area (it can have packing under other packing which is called nested handling unit). The handling unit in a HU Storage location means that there is control over the packed units, in other words the system controls the inventory. It is mostly used when goods are stored in a packed material like cartons, pallets, etc. The handling units can be nested and the HU transactions allow the unpacking and packing activities as well as moving the HU from one area to another. The handling units can be proposed in a sales order and determined on the delivery creation. The handling units can be also staged using Warehouse Management in process manufacturing.

Handling Units in Production Orders Purpose In the area of production orders you can use handling units (HUs) in the following cases: •Goods issues for the withdrawal of components. For production orders with many components you can make the logistical processes considerably simpler. You can withdraw components that are already being managed in HUs or first create the HU when the components are picked. •Goods receipts for materials produced. If you use make-to-stock production you can handle partial quantities of stock individually with differently packaged handling units (for example: packaging variations for different customer groups). Using handling units G.V.SHIVAKKUMAR - SAP MM WM LE Consultant

Handling Unit management (HUM) serves to optimize logistical processes and does not influence the flow of capital in an organization. This means that all goods movements continue to be posted to the relevant production orders. If you use handling units, they offer you the following advantages: •Carrying out goods movements is made simpler. •Material flows become clearer and can be monitored or traced more easily. •Products can be individually packaged, even in make-to-stock production.

Handling Units in Inventory Management Use

If

you use the Inventory Management (MM-IM) component, you can use Inventory Management functions for goods movements involving handling units. The following goods movements are supported: •Goods receipts •Goods issues •Transfer postings •Stock transfers When you post a goods movement in a storage location that is subject to handling unit management, the system creates a delivery. It does not create a material document. The goods issue is not valuated until the delivery is posted in Shipping (also refer to Goods Issue). Prerequisites:-Setting Up and Cancelling the HU Requirement in a Storage Location. To set up or cancel the handling unit requirement in a storage location, all the stocks in the storage location have to be posted out, so that the stock balances are zero for all materials. This also applies to special stocks that are managed at storage location level. After the handling unit requirement is changed, you can re-post the stocks to the storage location. You can define the handling unit requirement in Customizing for Handling Unit Management, in the step HU Requirement for Storage Locations and Default Values for Deliveries. Creating a Delivery :-To create a delivery in the Shipping (LE-SHP) application component, the following data must be maintained in the R/3 System (also refer to Creating Outbound Deliveries): •Plant data (sales organization, distribution channel, shipping point, and division) G.V.SHIVAKKUMAR - SAP MM WM LE Consultant

Email [email protected] Page 5

Handling Unit management (HUM) •The sales and distribution data in the material master record •The Customer field in the central vendor master record, as the vendor for shipping is also the customer You can define the required plant data in Customizing for Handling Unit Management, in the step HU Requirement for Storage Locations and Default Values for Deliveries. Features You can use all the functions of Inventory Management, with the exception of the following: •Physical inventory in Inventory Management does not support Handling Unit Management. •When goods are received for a purchase order, you cannot subsequently enter a freight vendor that is different from the vendor. You can only enter a different freight vendor by changing the relevant purchase order. •When goods are received for a purchase order, you cannot create a purchase order automatically, as goods movements in a storage location with handling unit requirement are carried out using deliveries. •You cannot post a goods receipt with reference to an inbound delivery. •The EAN128 functionality is not supported. •Handling Unit Management is only supported for special stocks if the special stocks are managed at storage location level. Partner Storage Location for Stock Transfers If, in a storage location that is subject to handling unit management, you want to increase or decrease the stock of a handling unit by transferring stock, you can define another storage location as a partner storage location. The system then suggests this G.V.SHIVAKKUMAR - SAP MM WM LE Consultant

Email [email protected] Page 6

Handling Unit management (HUM) partner storage location any time you do not enter any other storage location. You configure this in Customizing for Handling Unit Management, in the step HU Requirement for Storage Locations and Default Values for Deliveries. Object Reference for Handling Units:- it is useful for warehouse person to Identify where the HU is used currently and to avoid the process errors. We can see the Object reference in HU Monitor.

Handling Unit management (HUM)

Many people asked what is HUM & SUM and where it is used.. The basic difference b/n HUM and SUM is that, HUM is a combination of Goods and Packing Material and it is mainly used for tracking purpose. Whereas when it comes to SUM, its nothing but palletisation of the materials. The primary function of SUM is to effective use warehouse complex and gives greater flexibility in terms of handling goods movement and storing goods inside the warehouse. For your clear understanding SUM is a subdivision of storage Bin where stocks are stored with SU number rather in quant number. The another advantage of SUM is, we can maintain two or more different quants inside a SU. Both SUM and HUM shares same identification number, whereas SUM features limited within the warehouse, and HUM has its role outside the WMS. HU is basically a material(s) which can be packed using packing material(s). SU is defined for the purpose of handling and storing the material in Warehouse. you can have full pallet, half pallet or pallets of different sizes and capacities. Following are the differences i can think of. - HU is at IM level and Pallet is used for SUs at WM level. - HU mgmt is activated at Storage location level while SU mgmt activated at Storage type level. - HUs exists outside your organization (unique SSCC nos) while SUs are within the org, specifically at WM level. G.V.SHIVAKKUMAR - SAP MM WM LE Consultant

Email [email protected] Page 10

Handling Unit management (HUM) - You can have HU mgmt without SU mgmt or vice-versa. - When a HU is put away in warehouse, it is put away as SU. System automatically assigns the SU number same as HU. You can also work with SUs alone without HU mgmt, in which case, you have to be very careful while defining the number ranges for these two. I suggest you search forum for further details. Handling unit management can be used with or without WMS. But when you have WMS in place you need SUM to process handling units.

SUM: 1. SUM can be controlled for each storage type and allows you through the use of Sus to manage material quantities for each container or pallet as a self contained unit within a storage type. 2. Certain storage functions such as mixed storage control, removal from storage functions in bulk storage ,or capacity checks requires use of SUM in the warehouse as prerequisite. SUM activated for following reasons 1. Movement of mixed pallets as a single unit within the warehouse. 2. Identification & management of materials using storage unit numbers assigned internally or externally. 3. WM can communicate with fork lift control systems via interface without having to maintain material data in the external system. HUM: 1. HUM represents a packaging controlled logistics system in which all movements are mapped through HU’s. 2. If we use HUM then you must use the GR process with inbound deliveries. 3. If we use HUM in connection with WM then we must activate storage unit management for all storage types in which you want to store HU's. 4. During put away the system creates SU for the HU of the reference document, e.g. inbound delivery. This SU has the same identification number as its sister HU. 5. HUM must be activated for each plant/storage location combination. 6. HU itself is created in inbound delivery during packaging.

It requires Process walk through for Raw material flow from WM to PP and back to WM as FG material & QM Inspection before placing into Warehouse. So I have not used the steps. This document is pure Handling unit management process within IM & WM. SAP HU Customizing The settings for handling unit are relatively simple and just take few steps, the demand for further use in HU like combination with warehouse , picking-HU, HU determination or also aggregated functionalities increase the complexity level accordingly. Basically the necessary conditions is to set a packaging material type and a material group for packing and have it assigned to material of the packing type. Some further minor setting and any packable material can be packed in it, detailed information is available in creating a packing material wiki page. HU Structure The VEKP table (Handling Unit - Header Table) is the one which contain the identification and main overall information of the HU, the details is found in the item level, there are in the table besides the ones shown in the picture below the fields related to status, which document the HU is assigned and document number which HU is assigned, those fields are very important to determine the current status of the HU. The VEPO table (Packing: Handling Unit Item (Contents)) is the one which contain the that has either material or pack information (in case of a nested HU exists), it is the item level. All the HU must be comprised of Header + Item levels.

HU Creation on HU Managed Storage Location step by step information of the instructions for one of the HU02 functionality which performs the packing identification storing a certain quantity of a certain material as an example for HU managed location. It has screenshot used in this example as well as hyperlinks to other forms of HU creation.

HU creation summary In this case the HU is created in ERP logistics directly in case where the packing occurs before the delivery takes place; in this case it occurs on a HU managed storage location hence the inventory of the HU is taken place in MM-IV-GF (storage location inventory level). It can be done with only one transaction and it is required to have presettings like material package created and storage location set as HUM and its partner location pre-defined. Instructions The example below looks like very similar to the one for non HUM storage location. The difference is to fill the partner storage location into storage location field and then fill the HUM storage location into destination storage location field. Then a 311 material movement is performed when it is saved. Go to transaction HU02: 1. Go to tab “Pack material”; 2. Enter packaging material on the top section of the screen under the column “Packaging Materials”; G.V.SHIVAKKUMAR - SAP MM WM LE Consultant

*Transactions for creating and changing handling units: *  

Create/Change/Repack Handling Units (General) (HU02); Packing Station in Warehouse (HUPAST);



Pack Production Orders (COPAWA/COWBPACK);



Using the Handling Unit Monitor (HUMO);

*Display functions for handling units: *  

Directly using the Handling Unit Monitor (HUMO); Indirectly using the stock overviews for the material (MMBE and LS26);



For the individual document types: Inbound and outbound delivery, transfers, material documents, and so on (HUIBD, HUOBD, HUTRA and so on);



Handling units are not included in document archiving for the delivery or the transport. However, there is a report that archives handling units;

HU Transfer Summary A known HU number is selected to be stored in a specific location; in this case it is from a non-HU managed storage location into a HU managed storage location. The goods in this case were already packed in the original location. Even though VLMOVE does also some other processes like material to material and plant to plant it is not covered in this specific article. Instructions The example below was done after having created some HUs of that material and packed in a non-HUM storage location. So, basically the idea is to select it and inform the destination data in that transaction, no delivery or posting change are created for the 311 movement, but a material document. Go to transaction VLMOVE: 1. Enter 311 in process movement field; 2.

The stock is no longer in warehouse, the goods issue process is completed, the HU has PSTD status, the delivery is posted. Hence a material document related to the goods issue created. That HU could be reversed by using the delivery document number in VL09. Notice that document where HU is involved can only be reversed once. Some users complain that STO cannot be reprocessed because HU needs reversal on both inbound and outbound. It is a system restriction and in such case the operation needs to be done in the opposite direction to release the HU for further operations.

Handling Unit management (HUM)

The stock is no longer in warehouse, the goods issue process is completed, the HU has PSTD status, the delivery is posted. Hence a material document related to the goods issue created. That HU could be reversed by using the delivery document number in VL09. Notice that document where HU is involved can only be reversed once. Some users complain that STO cannot be reprocessed because HU needs reversal on both inbound and outbound. It is a system restriction and in such case the operation needs to be done in the opposite direction to release the HU for further operations.

Customizing settings for automatic packaging in deliveries user may be able to understand the automatic packing concept during delivery creation and be aware of the customizing settings needed for this functionality. Handling Unit The SAP ERP system sees a handling unit as a physical unit that consists of the packaging materials (load carrier / packaging material) and its goods. A handling unit is a combination of materials and packaging materials. The handling units can be proposed in a sales order and determined on the delivery creation. The handling units can be also staged using Warehouse Management in process manufacturing.

Automatic Packing The automatic packing functionalities are used in delivery transactions. (VL01N), WM (Warehouse Management) and EWM (Extended Warehouse Management) transactions. G.V.SHIVAKKUMAR - SAP MM WM LE Consultant

Handling Unit management (HUM) SAP HU Customizing for automatic packing in deliveries Basically it is necessary to set a packaging material type and a material group for packing and have it assigned to material of the packing type.

Additional customizing setting are needed for the automatic packing during delivery creation: 1.

SPRO -> SAP Reference IMG -> Logistic execution -> Shipping -> Deliveries -> Define Item Categories for Deliveries Transaction OVLP Packing control for the delivery item category V_TVLP-PCKPF is blank, which means packing is allowed. 2. SPRO -> SAP Reference IMG -> Logistic execution -> Shipping -> Deliveries -> Define delivery Types Transaction OVLK Automatic packing V_TVLK-AVERP set for the delivery type. 3.

SPRO -> SAP Reference IMG -> Logistics - General -> Handling Unit Management ->> Automatic packing -> Maintain Packing Transaction Profile Transaction OVHU2 Packing transaction profile: e.g. 0002 Outbound delivery -> Detail Determination procedure for packing instructions (V_CHUPDPARA1COND_SCHEME): e.g. 000001 pack in shipping set

4.

SAP Menu -> Logistics -> Sales and Distribution -> Master Data -> Agreements -> Pack -> Packing Instructions -> POP1 - Create Transaction POP1

5.

SAP Menu -> Logistics -> Sales and Distribution -> Master Data -> Agreements -> Pack -> Packing Instructions -> Determination Records -> POF1 - Create Transaction POF1

EAN128 Use Due to the increased global networking of manufacturers, forwarding agents, merchants, and consumers, the communication between all those involved in the supply chain is G.V.SHIVAKKUMAR - SAP MM WM LE Consultant

Handling Unit management (HUM) becoming more and more important. A common numbering standard that is defined by the international standardization organizations (UCC, EAN International) forms the basis for efficient processing in this field. These standards include the UCC/EAN128 and one of its sub-components, the Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC), which can be used to identify the handling units that were shipped. Within the supply chain, handling unit data can be transferred from one section to the next, for example, through EDI with EDIFACT or EANCOM standards using the UCC/EAN128 and the SSCC. You can have the SSCCs assigned as unique numbers as the handling unit is created. These numbers then serve to identify and track the handling units. The SSCC and other parts of the UCC/EAN128 can be combined to form a valid concatenated bar code or they can be extracted from such a bar code. The SSCC is created from its own number range object. Integration:The EAN128 numbering system is integrated in the packing function and the SSCC bar code can be read whenever there is a delivery split. Prerequisites:- Before you begin working with the EAN128 functions, you must acquire the basic number ILN2 (ILN="international location number") from the UCC or EAN International. Features:-When you create a handling unit, you can have an SSCC assigned automatically. This assignment is controlled by the packaging material type. The number range used in this process is determined according to the following logic: 1. Plant and storage location 2. Warehouse number 3. Plant 4. Client The SSCC can also be assigned externally by the user, in which case it is checked by the system against an external number range that is found using the same logic. At the same levels, the basic number of the ILN 2 that is required for generating the SSCC is specified. You can also use the Output section of Handling Units Customizing to print an EAN128 label. The structure of the bar code is controlled using a profile. Using this profile, the system determines how many bar code lines are to be printed and where an application identifier is to appear. The profile is assigned to an output type. You can define different profiles for the different label types. These label types include: lowerlevel HU (S - single label), HU containing only one material (M - main label), and HU containing different materials (G - group label). You can control the form from the standard output types in Customizing because the form and the profile are closely related. G.V.SHIVAKKUMAR - SAP MM WM LE Consultant
