Defining receiving discrepancy reasons

You can define codes to specify reasons for any discrepancies that may occur during the receipt of a shipment or return.

The different types of receiving discrepancies that occur are:

  • Over Receipt—Occurs when a receiving node receives additional quantity than the quantity expected.
  • Under Receipt—Occurs when a receiving node receives less than the expected quantity for the receipt.
  • Damaged Receipt—Occurs when the receiving disposition code indicates that a damaged product has been received.
    Note: You can define multiple reason codes for a given discrepancy type. For example, if you receive any shipment with a quantity of 10, which is less than the expected quantity, then for the Under Receipt discrepancy type, you can specify two different reasons for the receipt, such as 6 units SHORT_SHIPMENT and 4 units CARRIER_FAULT.
