In the first (Packages) block, you get an overview of all stand-alone packages (not based on release notes). For traffic receiving of this kind of package, you can use the P.80.51 Traffic Fast screen that allows you to populate a BOL or a container with the items of a package.
For site receiving without previous traffic receiving, you can use the C.20.02 Prepare MRR by Traffic screen by selecting traffic type 'Package'. If you have worked with traffic receiving, you must select one of the other corresponding traffic types.
The name or number of the package appears in the Package Number field. If the gross weight of the package exceeds the value of project default ZP_EXC_WGT, or if its x-, y-, z-dimension exceeds the value of ZP_EXC_X, ZP_EXC_Y, ZP_EXC_Z, the material is regarded as exceptional and marked with a cyan background color in this field. If the gross weight of the package exceeds the value of ZP_MAX_WGT but is smaller than the value of ZP_EXC_WGT, the material is regarded as heavy and marked with a magenta background color. If the x-, y-, z-dimension of the package exceeds the value of ZP_MAX_X, ZP_MAX_Y, ZP_MAX_Z but is smaller than the value of ZP_EXC_X, ZP_EXC_Y, ZP_EXC_Z, the material is regarded as oversized and also marked by a magenta background color.
Select the type of the package from the LOV in the Type field. You can double-click in the field to open the P.10.83 Package Types screens where package types are defined.
Enter the number of packages in the Quantity field. By default, the quantity is set to 1. But you can enter a quantity > 1 and insert all items in only one package although in reality the items belong to different packages, to save time or if you do not have detailed information about the packages and their items. The quantity entered here is taken into account when calculating the total volume, weight and freight tons of the package.
Enter the package descriptions in the Short Desc and Description fields.
Enter the dimensions of the package in the x Dimension, y Dimension, and z Dimension fields. If you enter the dimensions, the package volume is automatically calculated and appears in the Volume field.
The package dimension unit appears in the Dim Unit field. By default, the unit assigned to project default ZP_PCK_DIM is set when you create a new package. You can double-click in this field to open the A.10.12 Units of Measure screen where units are defined. You can select units that are defined for unit groups DIMENSION, LENGTH, or QUANTITY.
If you have not entered the dimensions, you can enter the volume in the Volume field. If you have entered the dimensions, the volume of the package for a quantity of 1 is calculated and appears in the Volume field. If necessary, the dimensions are converted to the unit given by project default ZX_DIM. If the conversion factor is not defined on A.10.13 Unit to Unit, -1 appears in the Volume field.
The package volume unit that is assigned to project default ZX_VOLUME appears in the Volume Unit field.
Enter the gross weight of the package for a quantity of 1 in the Gross Weight field. The gross weight of a package should be greater than or equal to its net weight and its calculated net weight (= sum of the total weight of all item shipments of this package). If you modify the weights such that the gross weight is less than the net weight or the calculated net weight, a warning appears. However, the values are accepted when the changes are saved.
In the Net Weight field, enter the weight of the material without packing.
The net weight of the package appears in the Calculated Net Weight field. The net weight is calculated as the total of all total weights of its package items. The total weight of each package item is calculated as quantity * item shipment weight.
The package weight unit appears in the Weight Unit field. By default, the unit assigned to project default ZX_WEIGHT is set when you create a new package. You can double-click in this field to open the A.10.12 Units of Measure screen where units are defined. You can select units that are defined for unit groups WEIGHT or QUANTITY.
The total freight tons of the package appears in the Total Freight Ton field. A total freight ton value of -1 indicates that a conversion factor is missing on A.10.13.
The metric measurement total freight tons is the maximum of either the total weight in metric tons or the total volume in cubic meters, whichever is greater. In this case, the total gross weight represents the total weight. In order to calculate the total freight tons correctly, you must provide values for the project defaults ZX_TON and ZX_CUBIC_M and possibly conversion factors on A.10.13 Unit to Unit. With project default ZX_TON, you define the metric weight unit that represents 'tons'; with project default ZX_CUBIC_M you define the unit representing 'cubic meters'. If the weight unit of the release note or the default volume unit of the project differ from these units, a conversion is done before determining the total freight tons.
The name of the site warehouse appears in the Warehouse field. The name of the site location appears in the Location field.
Enter the name or number of the container in the Container Number field. You can double-click in this field to open the P.80.23 Container Index screen where container numbers are defined.
Select the site type of the package from the drop-down list in the Site Type field. The available values are Receive and Issue.
The Received indicator shows whether this package was received.
The Issued indicator shows whether this package was issued.
The OSD Traffic indicator shows whether a traffic OSD that has not been closed exists for the package. You can double-click the check box to open the PT.30.02 OSD for Packages screen where the OSD appears.
The OSD Site indicator shows whether a site OSD that has not been closed exists for the package. You can double-click the check box to open the C.20.09.03 OSD for Packages screen where the OSD appears.
Click the Export button to export the selected package to an Excel file. Click the Import button to import a package from an Excel file. For more information, see Packages Export/Import.
Click the Receive button to receive the package in the site inventory. A material receiving report (MRR) will be generated and all materials of this package are stored in the inventory.
The Receive button is only enabled if the warehouse and location are given, the site type is set to 'Receive', and the package has not yet been received in the inventory.
Click the Issue button to issue the package. A material issue report (MIR) will be generated and all materials of this package are issued from the inventory.
The Issue button is only enabled if the warehouse and location are given, the site type is set to 'Issue', and the package has not yet been issued from the inventory.
Click the Attachments button to open the D.90.21 Attachments screen where you can attach documents to the selected package. For more information, see Attachments.
