When the sourcing of the requested material is confirmed, shipping processing can begin. In SAP S/4HANA, the creation of outbound deliveries is the first step in the shipping process. The outbound delivery controls, supports, and monitors numerous process steps, such as the following:
Picking and confirming via warehouse management functions (optional)
Transport planning and monitoring via shipment documents (optional) or via freight orders in SAP S/4HANA Transportation Management (optional)
Posting the goods issue

The outbound delivery forms the basis of goods issue posting. The data required for goods issue posting is copied from the outbound delivery into the goods issue document, which cannot be changed manually. Any changes must be made in the outbound delivery itself. In this way, you can be sure that the goods issue document is an accurate reflection of the outbound delivery.
Posting the goods issue changes the quantity and the value of the goods in stock. Value-based changes are made to the relevant balance sheet accounts in financial accounting.
