Use of Supply Chain Unit
With the SCU, you can replicate certain business characters of locations, such as door or warehouse, which you need in the processes of Extended Warehouse Management (EWM). You can use an SCU with different business characters. An SCU can simultaneously be used as a planning location and a shipping office, for example. You can create hierarchies of SCUs to represent the organization of a supply chain.
Create Supply Chain Unit
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 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 of the location/SCU
One or more business characters of the SCU
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.
