Vehicle space optimisation

Postby AMKASA » Mon Oct 20, 2014 4:26 am

We have SAP R/3 implemented at our company and we have the following requirement:

At sales order creation stage we need the system to notify the user when the maximum truck load has been reached. We have the weight and volume information of our materials and packaging materials. Can anyone recommend a simple solution or workaround without having to implement vehicle space optimisation functionality as our operation is quite simple so we don't want to add too many additional steps in the shipment process.

You can try to use packing proposal functionality in Sales Order.
You can set up packing material type as a truck and give the required characteristics such as mx weight, volume, etc.
So once packing proposal give more than 1 handling unit it means that it is more than 1 truck.

I have not touched this area for years so I can just remember the high level processes.
