  • 8 = Automatic connection to next open shipment regardless of transport capacity. If no open shipment exists, a new shipment will be created for the same departure time and with the best possible route/departure.
Note: 

Alternatives 5 and 6 are for situations where the warehouse will send on the next delivery if the truck is full. Alternatives 7 and 8, on the other hand, are for situations where the warehouse will find another truck to depart the same time if the current truck is full.

Automatic connection only applies to route types with scheduled route departures (that is, route type 4-6), and to those that allow automatic connection to shipment (see 'Route. Open' (DRS005/F)).

Deliveries are only connected to shipments with matching place of loading, route/route departure, and departure date/time.

This means that auto-allocation will be prevented, and release for picking and reporting will only be possible after releasing a hold flag on the delivery line Req/Distr Order. Open Lines' (MWS301/E).

This only applies to customer orders since only customer orders have a last delivery date.

A value of 999 in this field indicates that this function is disabled; that is, auto-allocation will be performed regardless of the last delivery date on the customer order, and no hold will be placed on the lines during release for pick and report.

H 400 User-defined program, freight charges

The field indicates a program that will be called when the delivery status is greater than 50 (issued from stock) and the packing status is greater than or equal to 30 (fully packed).

The intention is to enable you to design a program to add customer order charges based on the delivery totals and packing details. In addition, the program is to be called at the point in the dispatch flow where all required information is available.

H 420 Picking list status at extended cross-docking

  • 1 = The address is retrieved automatically from the consignee. Either the customer delivery address in 'Customer. Connect Addresses' (OIS002) or the customer in 'Customer. Open' (CRS610) is used to propose the ship-via address. Applies only to order category 3 (customer order).
  • 2 = The address is retrieved automatically from the route. The place of unloading that is connected to the delivery 'Delivery. Open Toolbox' (MWS410) and route 'Route. Connect Unloading Places' (DRS021) is used to default the ship-via address.
  • 3 = The address is retrieved automatically from the generic object control. The ship-via address in 'Available Object Ctrl Parameters. Open' (CMS016), 'Generic Object Control Table. Open' (CMS017) and 'Ship-via Address. Define' (MWS190) is used to propose the ship-via address.
H 480 Commodity code control Select the checkbox if freight commodity code is to be retrieved automatically to the package details during packing. The fright commodity code is only required when bill of lading documents are to be created.
H 490 Acessorial pre-selection

Select the check box to enable pre-selection of freight accessorials when deliveries and delivery lines are created.

This setting must be enabled both on the dispatch policy and in (Settings - TPL Standard values) to enable retrieval of pre-selection of freight accessorials on the delivery and delivery line level.

To activate retrieval of the freight accessorial pre-selection on the shipment level, only the setting in (Settings - TPL Standard values) must be enabled.

H 495 Checkpoint for freight cost control

The field indicates at which step in the dispatch flow that freight cost control will be activated.

Alternatives:

  • 0 = No control.
  • 1 = Yes, a control will be performed at release for allocation.

  • 3 = Yes, a control will be performed at issuing.

The checkpoint set will be the first time in the flow when freight cost control will be performed.

Alternative 1 will activate a control at release for allocation, at release for picking and at issuing.

Alternative 2 will activate a control at release for picking and at issuing.

Alternative 3 will activate a control only at issuing.

If the freight cost setup has changed between the steps, this will avoid any incorrect invoices being sent to customers and payments to forwarding agents and internal accounting.

If stopped at release for allocation, the delivery status will be set to 00–'Not released for allocation'. If stopped at release for picking, the delivery status will be set to 03–'CO stop'. For both scenarios, a stop code will be stated on the delivery.

This parameter only defines the point in time when controls will be performed, and not what to control. To set what to control, see 'Freight cost control' in the delivery terms.

Note: 

Alternative 1 is not permitted when released for allocation is activated.

For auto-level 4, alternative 3 is not permitted.

You can only use this option if the packing reporting method is set to manual simple packing.

I 511 User reporting version

Select the check box to use a reporting version.

If you select the check box, one reporting version number will be stored on the picking list headers and the packages created each time one or more picking lists are issued simultaneously. This enables you to display and print address labels for packages for each reporting version as a subset of the packages connected to the delivery.

You can only select this check box if the packing reporting method is manual simple packing.

I 512 Auto create package

The field indicates if a package is automatically created when simple packing is automatically started during picking list issue.

Alternatives:

  • 0 = No package is created. At least one package must be created manually in 'Delivery. Connect Packages' (MWS423).
  • 1 = One package is automatically created.

If the value is set to 1, then the "Standard package to use" must be entered.

Note: 

In order for the weight and volume to be calculated correctly when packages are created automatically, the setting "Generate transaction online" must be selected in 'Settings - Customer Order Entry' (CRS720).

I 513 Standard packaging to use The field indicates the ID of the packaging to use during the automatic creation of packages when simple packing is initiated during picking list issue. The packaging is defined in 'Packaging. Open' (MMS050).
I 520 Soft allocation transfer level

The field indicates if and when soft allocation is automatically transferred to hard allocation.

During certain events, soft allocated lines can automatically be transferred to hard allocation. When these events take place, the standard allocation rules will select the balance identity and perform hard allocation if possible.

Alternatives:

  • 00 = There is no automatic transfer from soft allocation to hard allocation.
  • 10 = Transfer from soft allocation to hard allocation is done immediately when the allocation is done. This means that hard allocation will in effect be done immediately at allocation.
  • 20 = Transfer from soft allocation to hard allocation when the picking list is generated.
  • 30 = Transfer from soft allocation to hard allocation when the picking list is printed or downloaded to the M3 Warehouse Interface.

Note that the transfer from soft allocation to hard allocation can also be triggered manually by using option 38 in 'Allocation. Prepare Picking Release' (MWS413) or 'Picking List. Report' (MWS420).

I 530 Chronological delivery note, number series ID

The field indicates the ID of the number series used to generate chronological delivery note numbers when a delivery note is printed for a delivery with the current dispatch policy. The number is also printed per invoice line when invoicing the customer order.

The first time a delivery note is printed for a delivery, the functional program MMS480 (Print delivery note) generates a chronological delivery note number and stores it in the delivery header in the deliveries table, MHDISH, together with the date and time of creation in the time zone of the delivering warehouse.

If a delivery note has been printed with a chronological delivery note number for a delivery and this delivery note is later deleted, the chronological delivery note number saved in the delivery header is used when a new delivery note is created for the delivery, so that there will be no gaps in the number series.

The optional number series must belong to number series type "DT" (Chronological delivery note number) in 'Number Series. Open' (CRS165).

I 531 Transaction reason

The field indicates a user-defined reason code 'Transaction Reason. Open' (CRS103). The description for the reason code will be printed on the delivery note.

To be able to enter a reason code for the dispatch policy, the chronological delivery note number series ID must be entered.

I 540 Delivery consolidation - field 1

The field indicates the first user-defined field to use during delivery creation.

This field is used to consolidate or split delivery numbers as the user prefers. If the field is filled in, it will be used as extra criteria together with system-defined values when deliveries are created.

The main purpose is to be used for delivery regrouping to further split a preliminary delivery into firm deliveries.

Other specific processes that require specific values in delivery consolidation field 1 or 2:

Prepayment – Value: OBTEPY

Internal Sales – Value: OAICTR

Pick-up delivery – Value: &PUDL

I 545 Delivery consolidation - field 2

The field indicates the second user-defined field to use during delivery creation.

This field is used to consolidate or split delivery numbers as the user prefers. If the field is filled in, it will be used as extra criteria together with system-defined values when deliveries are created.

The main purpose is to be used for delivery regrouping to further split a preliminary delivery into firm deliveries.

Other specific processes that require specific values in delivery consolidation field 1 or 2:

Prepayment – Value: OBTEPY

Internal Sales – Value: OAICTR

Pick-up delivery – Value: &PUDL

I 550 Allocation-based packing activated

Select the check box to activate the transfer of a fully allocated package in stock to a package for a specific delivery.

When this check box is selected, the system will try to transfer a hard-allocated package in stock to a package for a specific delivery in the following cases:

When the packing reporting method is 4 and the picking list is printed.

When the packing reporting method is 2, 3 or 4 and option 22 (Autopack) is used in 'Picking List. Report' (MWS420/B).

I 555 Package-based receipt

Select the check box to enable package-based receipt.

If this check box is selected, you can perform receipt when working with packages in stock and still keep the package structure and content from the supplying order. The external package information is then transferred to become in-house package information.

Package-based receipt is done for each shipment, delivery, or package number for a distribution order. Receipt can be performed from 'Goods Receipt DO/RO. Report' (MWS440) or from API MHS850MI.

Package-based receipt is done for each delivery note number and package number for a purchase order. Receipt can be performed from 'Supplier Delivery Note. Open' (PPS360) or from API PPS360MI.

I 560 Create physical inventory during picking

Select the check box to create a stock count task in 'Physical Inventory. Perform' (MMS300) when sending a pick message in 'Order Init Stock Msg. Manage' (MHS850) or using API MHS850MI. The stock count task will be created if the on-hand balance is equal to zero when pick reporting is done.

The following MI transactions are included in the create physical inventory process:

AddCOPick Report CO

AddMOPick Report MO

AddDOPick Report DO

AddROPiCK Report RO

AddReplPick Report replenishment order (TTYP 92)

AddPickviaRepNo Report via reporting number

AddPickviaPack Report full package (can contain more than one item)

AddPickviaPacStk Report soft allocated package

This check box must be selected both for the location (MMS010) and for the dispatch policy (I).

I 570 Delivery value checkpoint

The field indicates if and how the delivery value check should be triggered. A triggered delivery value check performs an evaluation if the payer of the delivery is solvent, to let the delivery be issue reported. The result of the delivery value check is shown via the issue reporting status of the delivery. The issue reporting status is validated at issue reporting to only allow deliveries that have passed the delivery value check or have been manually approved for issue reporting. Deliveries without a performed delivery value check or a failed delivery value check will be prevented from being issue reported.

Alternatives:

  • 0 = Not used
  • 1 = Only manually
  • 2 = Manually and automatically when goods are on dock location for the first time.
Note: 

Alternative 1 means that the delivery value check must be manually triggered. Alternative 2 means that the delivery value check will be automatically triggered the first time all picking lists are on dock location. It's also possible to manually trigger the delivery value check.

Note that it is always possible to manually approve the delivery for issue without performing the delivery value check.

The delivery value check functionality is only valid for deliveries with reference order category 3 (customer order).

I 580 Delivery value check method

The field indicates how the delivery value is calculated.

Alternatives:

  • 0 = Not used
  • 1 = Value calculated per line as sales price - line discounts, multiplied with transaction quantity.
Note: 

Alternative 1 will use the same method as the one used when the value is calculated on a proforma invoice in 'Proforma invoice' (MWS630).

The delivery value check functionality is only valid for deliveries of reference order category 3 (customer order).

I 585 Pick-up delivery type

The field indicates if a pick-up delivery should be created and which address information that should be used as the end destination for the pick-up delivery. Note that pick-up deliveries for transportation orders are used for transportation planning purposes regarding the empty vehicle leaving the warehouse. A pick-up delivery will therefore only incorporate the planning of the first part of the transportation from the M3 BE warehouse to either the departure address or the delivery address entered on the transportation order.

Alternatives:

  • 0 = No creation of pick-up delivery
  • 1 = Yes, use departure address information as end destination for pick-up delivery
  • 2 = Yes, use delivery address information as end destination for pick-up delivery
Note: 

Pick-up delivery type 1 can be used in scenarios when a transportation task between two locations and the vehicle needs to be planned for the M3 BE warehouse (according to order line).

Pick-up delivery type 2 can be used in scenarios when a vehicle needs to arrive at a specific address without any further transportation task to perform. One example could be if transportation planning is required for a vehicle that must go to a specific address to perform other services such as a car wash or repair.

When pick-up delivery type 2 is selected, the departure address information will be retrieved from the M3 BE warehouse.

J 590 Propagate delivery changes

Select the check box to enable propagation of delivery changes to order lines.

When propagation is activated and a change is made to a delivery, all order lines connected to the delivery are updated with the same values as the ones set on the delivery.

Propagation is limited to customer orders. Only departure date, departure time, and final delivery terms are propagated. Propagation is only performed while a delivery is open (the delivery status is below 50).

The change of departure date and time on the connected order lines will update the planned date and time as well as the confirmed delivery date and time.

A change of departure date or time on a shipment is always propagated to the deliveries connected to it. This is not dependent on the propagation parameter, but when the propagation parameter is activated on the dispatch policies on the connected deliveries, the changed departure date or time on the shipment is propagated all the way to all the order lines connected to the deliveries.

If the final delivery terms on a delivery are changed and if that leads to the delivery terms on all of the order lines of an order are updated through propagation, the delivery terms on the order header are also updated with the same value.

J 600 Allow distribution over receipt

The field indicates whether it is permitted to receive more than what is registered to be sent on a distribution order (DO) line.

Alternatives:

  • 0 = No, it is not possible to receive more items than what is registered to be sent on the DO line or to receive a different item.
  • 1 = Yes, it is possible to receive more than what is registered to be sent on the DO line. The quantity difference must be within the tolerance defined in parameter 610. Observe that if the tolerance percentage is 0, no limitation applies. It is not possible to receive other items than the ones registered in the DO.
  • 2 = Yes, it is possible to receive more than what is registered to be sent on the DO line, if that quantity is within the tolerance defined in parameter 610. It is also possible to receive items that were not in the DO.
Note: 

Over receipt is not allowed for catch weight items, sublot items, or in house package items. Under receipt is always possible.

J 610 Over receipt difference percentage

The field indicates the percentage variance tolerated for the distribution over receipt and is considered if the parameter 600 (‘Allow distribution over receipt’) in 'Dispatch Policy. Open' (MWS010) is set to 1 or 2.

Two decimal places are used.

This percentage is used for checking if the value is reasonable when registering the distribution order receipt.

If the value of the quantity received is higher than the entered percentage of the dispatched quantity, the receipt is not allowed.

If the value is 0, no check for quantity variance is performed.
