Create Supply Chain Unit

Structure

The SCU contains general data and address data of the corresponding location. In contrast to the latter, however, it does not contain any further global or application-specific data. The SCU also has one or more business characters.

You will find this SCU data on the following tab pages:

General

General header data of the SCU/location, such as the global location number (GLN) and geographical data.

The technical name of an SCU must be unique in the system. That is to say, it must not conflict with the technical name of a location.

Address Data

Address data of the location/SCU

Business Character

One or more business characters of the SCU


Integration

When a location is created in SAP SCM either manually or by transfer via the core interface (CIF), the system automatically creates an SCU with identical general and address data and the business character planning location.

Conversely, if you create an SCU with the business character planning location , the system automatically creates a location with identical general and address data.
