In Release 4.0A, two new update groups will be available in the
SIS in table TMCB as follows:
These new update groups enable you to separate deliveries
regarding stock transport orders and deliveries relating to returns
orders distinctly from normal deliveries, without having to create
your own update groups in the updating definition.
Up till now, such a distinct separation was only possible when self-defined update groups were created.
You should always use these new update groups when you are
dealing with deliveries with a delivery type that has a purchase
order as its preceding document.
Please note that the update group determination for deliveries such as these is always called up using the statistics group customer ='*'.
In 4.0A, these two new update groups are already used in the
standard system for the information structure S150; this means you
can refer to this definition as an example.
This application observes the workload in indutrial and retail warehouse. The replenishment which flows from a distribution center to regional warehouses or to a store plays an important role here. This process is represented by the following document chain: stock transport order, delivery, goods issue.
