Define and assign network types

In this step, you define network types.

The network type defines the order types for shipping deadlines and contains certain parameters for controlling network processing (for example, the number range and criteria for selecting a routing).

You need a separate number range (object AUFK) which is entered for the network type for the deadlines. The network type is plant-specific and must therefore be assigned to a plant.

Standard settings

The standard SAP R/3 System contains the network type SD01 for shipping deadlines.


1. To define a new network type, enter an alphanumeric key with a maximum of 4 digits and a descriptive text
2. Enter the number range.
3. Assign the network type to a plant.
