Generation of Packing Bags

Automatically Generate, Combine and Group Components into Sales Order Positions

The solution is used to automatically generate sales order items for components (material number) of articles entered. The small parts required for an order, such as screws or handles, are each picked and delivered in a separate collective item. This means that all parts can be completely assembled within a single operation, eliminating the need for unprofitable pre-assembly at the factory. The components and quantities for the packing bags are determined either across items or on an item-by-item basis.

Optional Selection Options for the Generation of Packaging Bags in the Customer Order

Depending on the selection, it is determined in sales order processing whether packing bag items are to be processed, previously created items are to be deleted or only items not relevant to production are to be checked. When creating found components, the packing bag items are grouped according to delivery date, delivery plant and assigned characteristic value. The decisive factor here is the delivery date and the plant of the order item for which the respective BOM component is required. Each combination results in a new packing bag item. The generation of the packing bag items can be linked to the normal sales order entry.
