Internal Orders including Requisition and Distribution Orders

This principal process document explains the routines for internal orders. There are two types of internal orders: requisition and distribution. Both types of orders are executed in 'Req/Distr Order. Open' (MMS100), but are use different order types. There are several parameter settings for these user-specific order types, which are set in 'Req/Distr Order Type. Open' (CRS200).

Outcome

A requisition order results in a withdrawal from stock or an additional stock transaction.

A distribution order results in a shipment between two different warehouses.

These are the uses of a requisition order:

These are the uses of a distribution order:

The (MGHEAD) and the (MGLINE) tables manage requisition and distribution order heads (MMS100) and lines (MMS101). The (MGTYPE) table manages the requisition and distribution order types (CRS200).

Before you start

Basic data for item and inventory are set.

Follow these steps

  1. An order head is created in 'Req/Distr Order. Open' (MMS100).

  2. Order lines are created in 'Req/Distr Order. Open Lines' (MMS101).

  3. A quick entry, which enables you to specify all necessary data on only one panel, is done on the (MMS100/N) panel. The N-panel must be selected as the opening panel.

    If the requisition order is a withdrawal from stock (transaction type 41), then this stock must be allocated. Allocation can be automatic or manual, and set up in different ways. See Allocation and Cross-Docking Concepts.

    If the requisition is a stock transaction type 40='Put into stock', no allocation is performed.

  4. Dispatch flow (release for picking, pack, pick, report picking) is also only performed for requisition orders that result in withdrawal from stock. Dispatch can be automatic or manual, and set up in different ways. See Dispatch Handling.

    If the requisition is put into a stock transaction, no dispatch is performed.

  5. For the requisition order that is a put into stock transaction goods are placed at the location(s) in 'Goods Receipt DO/RO' (MWS440).

Workflow for distribution order

  1. Distribution order proposals are specified and released in 'Planned Distribut Order. Open' (DPS170).

  2. Distribution orders are specified and released in 'Req/Distr Order. Open' (MMS100).

  3. Order lines are created in 'Req/Distr Order. Open Lines' (MMS101).

  4. Delivery addresses are specified in 'Req/Distr Order. Connect Delivery Addr' (MMS110).

  5. A quick entry, which enables you to specify all necessary data on only one panel, is done on the (MMS100/N) panel. The N-panel must be selected as the opening panel.

  6. Allocation can be automatic or manual, and set up in different ways. See Allocation and Cross-Docking Concepts.

  7. Dispatch (release for picking, pack, pick, report picking) can be automatic or manual, and set up in several ways. See Dispatch Handling.

  8. The receiving warehouse reports the receiving and put away of the goods in 'Goods Receipt DO/RO. Report' (MWS440), 'Goods Receipt DO/RO. Open Toolbox' (MWS442), 'Goods Receipt DO/RO. Report Packages' (MWS443), 'Goods Receipt DO/RO. Report Packages Det' (MWS444), and 'Goods Receipt DO/RO. Report Details' (MWS445).
