These steps describe different methods when creating a shipment for picking. In the first method, you create a shipment before the release. In the second method, you create a shipment after the release.
Create a customer order. A suitable route will be automatically connected when an order line is specified. The selected route is, among other things, dependent on the requested delivery date/time.
The connected route is displayed on the order lines panel (OIS101/B). If there are predefined route departures, those are also displayed.
Use option 44-'Delivery line' and note the delivery number for further actions:
If the settings in 'Dispatch Policy. Open' (MWS010) specify that the order should be automatically connected to a shipment, continue with 'Shipment. Open Toolbox' (DRS100) and begin to work with the shipment. See (DRS100).
Press Enter to redisplay the (MWS410/B) panel. You now have a shipment number connected to your delivery. Continue with Working with shipments.
'Shipment. Open Toolbox' (DRS100) is the core of transportation management and is used to manage all other steps in the dispatch flow for the shipment. How to work with the different dispatch functions (such as picking, packing, docking, picking resource planning, reporting, etc.) is described in Dispatch Handling.
Start (DRS100). On the B panel, you can create user-defined sorting orders and views.
Select from this list of available packing alternatives:
This program is used for:
After packing of a delivery is performed, the shipment status is raised to 40-'Deliveries connected, packing complete'. When all deliveries connected to the shipment have been packed, the shipment status is raised to 50-'Shipment packed complete, not reported'.
Option 11-'Report picking' starts (MWS420). See Print, Pick, Pack and Report Picking Lists. After reporting the shipment, the shipment status is raised to '60' which is the final status for the shipment. Status 90 means that shipment is cancelled.
Options 27, 28, 15-'Generate, print delivery documents'. The document status is raised from '00' to '20' after documents are generated and printed.
Use Option 16-'Print loading list' to start 'Loading List. Print' (DRS670). A loading list is used when loading the transportation equipment according to unloading sequence, etc.
More options are available in (DRS100).
Use option 2-'Open' or 5-'Display' on the (DRS100) panel to display the (DRS110/E) panel. This is the same panel as the one when a new shipment was created. If you use option 2, you can override many fields on this panel for the shipment.
The Transport equipment field on the (DRS100/E) panel is defaulted based on route but can be manually overridden. Optionally, Transportation Resource can be used and set manually.
In the 'Transport identity departure' field on the (DRS100/E) panel, specify the transport identity of, for example, the truck that will ship the goods.
This is printed on the loading list 'Loading List. Print' (DRS670) and booking list 'Transport Booking List. Print' (DRS680), and can also be included in the view (field group DRPV4).
On the (DRS100/F) panel, weight, volume, and free unit are displayed for:
Settings for this method are defined in (MWS010).
These are the alternatives for connecting deliveries to a shipment after the release for picking:
Create a customer order.
A suitable route will be automatically connected when an order line is specified. The selected route is, among other things, dependent on the requested delivery date/time.
The connected route is displayed on the order lines panel (OIS101/B). If predefined route departures are available, those are also displayed.
Continue with the order flow in the usual way, which means allocations and release for picking. The order status is raised to 33-'Picking list created'.
You can now connect deliveries to a new or existing shipment. You can also delay the connection and continue the dispatch flow for the delivery.
