Catch Weight in Purchase Order

This document describes the process by which Catch Weight is managed during procurement.

If necessary, reference the Catch Weight Management document for an introduction to the functionality available to support the concept of catch weight.

Outcome

Catch weight is managed in the purchase order flow.

Understand the setup and use of the catch weight solution in the purchase order flow from a logistics perspective.

Summary

Three scenarios are described:

  1. Direct put away of goods

  2. Goods receive and put away of goods

  3. 2-step put-away of goods

Settings

Program ID Field Heading Description
(PPS345/E) Direct put-away

Select if put-away is to be reported directly. If not selected, goods receipt, including any quality inspection, occurs before put-away. Direct put-away means that one report covers both goods receipt and put-away.

Even if selected it is possible to override if, for instance, a quality inspection report is needed due to transportation damage.

(PPS345/F) Two-step put-away

Indicates whether two-step put-away is activated.

0 = No

1 = Yes

2 = Yes, staged two-step put-away, i.e. located at a receiving area, waiting to be directed to the correct put-away location during put-away confirmation.

This activation occurs in two places - in the stock zone, and in the goods receiving method or order type. For purchase orders, the activation is in goods receiving method. For manufacturing orders and DO/RO orders, it is in the respective order types.

Both the stock zone and the goods receiving method/order type must have this field active for two-step put-away to commence.

Direct Put-Away of Goods

Apply this method when a one-step process for receiving and puting-away received goods is used. Catch Weight will be entered in the goods receiving step.

  1. Create purchase order in 'Purchase Order. Open' (PPS200).

  2. Order 10 Pcs of item 4450BC and order 10 Pcs of item 4450BCPA (container method 4).

  3. Start 'Purchase Order. Receive Goods' (PPS300/B). Select 4450BC and 'Change'.

  4. In 'Receive Goods' (PPS300/E), receive 4 Pcs and 42 Kg. Specify a manual Lot no.

  5. Go back to (PPS300/B). Receive remaining quantity of 6 Pcs.

  6. On (PPS300/E), specify new location but same lot number. Receive 6 Pcs and 60 Kg.

  7. Go back to (PPS300/B). Select 4450BCPA (10Pcs) and 'change'.

  8. In 'Receive Goods' (PPS300/E), receive 10 Pcs. Option='14 - Purchase Order Line Split' can also be used.

  9. 'Purchase Order. Split Lines' (PPS302/B) is started. Specify number of balance IDs to receive which is 2 in this scenario (combinations of 'Lot no' and 'Container IDs'). Click 'Apply' on the B- panel.

  10. Two lines are created. Specify 'Number', 'Lot no', 'quantity', 'container ID', and 'Catch Weight' per line. Select action 'Confirm Update'.

  11. (PPS300/B) is redisplayed with two lines; 4450BC and 4450BCPA. Status is '75=Putaway completed'.

  12. View stock balance IDs in 'Balance Identity. Open Toolbox' (MWS060/B). For the first PO-line, quantity in BUM and catch weight unit is stored in parallel on each stock balance ID. For the second PO-line there will be two balance IDs (5+5Pcs) on the same lot-number and location, but with different container IDs.

Goods Receive and Put Away of Goods

Apply this method when receiving is divided into 2 steps. The catch weight will be entered in the second put-away step using 'Purchase Order. Put Away Goods' (PPS320).

Note: Use the item details provided for scenario 1.

Copy the PO from scenario 1 and change 'GR-method' on panel 'Purchase Order. Open Line' (PPS201/F) for both lines to receive and put-away.

  1. Receive Goods in (PPS300/B). Select 4450BC and 'change'. Order 10 Pcs (100 kg).

  2. Receive goods in (PPS300/E). Specify the total quantity only. No catch weight.

  3. (PPS300) displayed. Select 4450BCPA and 'change'.

  4. Receive goods in (PPS300/E). Specify the total quantity only. No catch weight.

  5. Start 'Purchase Order. Put Away Goods' (PPS320/B). Specify the receiving number for first line, item 4450BC.

  6. Start (PPS320/E). Specify Lot no, quantity (4Pcs), and received catch weight (42Kg).

  7. View stock balance IDs in (MWS060/B). Result: 6 Pcs with 58 (100-42) kgs remaining on the fictive lot number.

  8. PO-put-away in (PPS320/B). Put away the remaining quantity (6Pcs).

  9. In (PPS320/E) specify Lot no, quantity (6Pcs) and received catch weight (60Kg).

  10. Start (PPS320/B). Specify receiving number for the second line, item 4450BCPA.

  11. Start (PPS320/E). Specify Lot no, quantity (6Pcs) and received catch weight (60Kg).

  12. View stock balance IDs (MWS060/B). Result: two balance IDs with same lot number but unique catch weight.

  13. Evaluate results in (MWS060) and (MWS070).

Two Step Put-away of Goods

Apply this method when receiving is divided into 2 steps. The second step is a logistical move only.

  1. Create purchase order in (PPS200). Order 10 Pcs (100 kg).

  2. Receive goods in (PPS300/E). Select option='14 Purchase order line split'.

  3. On 'Purchase Order. Split Lines' (PPS302/B), receive 2 lots and specify 'number', 'Lot no', 'quantity', and 'catch weight' per line. Select action 'Confirm Update'.

  4. In 'Pending Put-Away. Perform' (MWS460/B), select option 'Process' to enter the location to move to.

  5. in (MWS460/E), specify new location.

  6. View stock balance IDs in (MWS060/B). The 2 lots have now been put into to their final locations and the catch weight entered at goods receipt has been retained.
