Handling Unit Management (HUM) for
Production (226)
       Purpose and Benefits:

         Purpose
              Handling Unit Management (HUM) is used to control logistical processes.
              A handling unit represents a physical object in the SAP system. It consists of a load carrier, one or
               more packed products and an unlimited quantity of packaging materials. Each handling unit has a
               unique identification number, which is typically printed as a barcode on a material tag.
              You can specify the material and the quantity that is to be packed in certain packaging, that is, in one
               handling unit. These requirements are reproduced in a packing instruction. This packing instruction
               can be used to create handling units automatically.

         Benefits
              Automatic packaging according to packing instructions
              Track movements of groups of individual materials by tracking the handling units that contain them
              Full integration into the logistic chain
              The scenario offers you the possibility to demonstrate HUM with or without warehouse management
           


         Key process flows covered
              Creation and release of production order for handling unit (HU) production
              HU packaging in production order
              Goods receipt for produced HU
              Monitoring of HU
              Confirming production of HU
              HU handling with WM or HU handling without WM
Quality Management in Discrete
Manufacturing (227)
        Purpose and Benefits:

         Purpose
              This scenario deals with quality inspection activities during the production
               process.
               Quality activities are required both when a product is manufactured in-house and
               when the production involves external processing where parts of the production
               process are done by a subcontractor.

         Benefits
              Two sub-scenarios to cover both goods acceptance and goods rejection or
               acceptance and rejection of the external processing respectively.
              Quality Notification to track quality issues, and trigger further actions, such as re-
               work or scrapping


         Key process flows covered
              QM for goods receipt of production order
              QM for goods receipt of external processing
              Acceptance and rejection of goods/ external processing work are both covered
Advanced Batch Management (229)


       Purpose and Benefits:

        Purpose
             You get the complete batch history data including the evolution of a batch, by
              considering all relevant batch-related object types (BRO types) maintained in
              different SAP and external systems.

        Benefits
             To track the transactional data related to batches
             To find out where a batch was used, e.g. to perform a batch recall or for
              evaluation purposes
             To find out where a batch is used, e.g. in which stocks or inspection lots or
              material documents
             To have a single point of batch maintenance

        Key process flows covered
             Batch information cockpit with Batch History
Purchasing with JIT Delivery Schedules (230)


        Purpose and Benefits:

         Purpose
              This scenario focuses on JIT procurement.
              It describes an inbound process in a typical repetitive manufacturing environment .

         Benefits
              Streamlined demand flow from customer to supplier
              High integration of customer’s and supplier’s supply chain managed by cumulative quantities
              Shorter process times
              Reduction of inventories to a minimum

         Key process flows covered
              Create scheduling agreement for vendor material
              Update scheduling agreement with forecast and JIT delivery schedules
              Enable traceability via batch or serial number assignment
              Create Scheduling Agreement Release
              Print and Transmit Scheduling Agreement to vendor
              Goods receipt posting with reference to scheduling agreement
              Billing
Sales with Scheduling Agreements (231)


        Purpose and Benefits:

         Purpose
