PRELIMINARY CHECK TO PREPARE THE SERVICE CONFIRMATION FORM
Once information about execution of required services (either internal or external) is received from all the sections involved in the service provision, UCS staff prepares the Service Confirmation Form (SCF) as compulsory document required to start the following financial actions as detailed in the following chapters. This document is generated from WINGS report named Logistics Reconciliation Report (transaction ZSCR126) and contains the relevant information about the services provided and the WINGS documents that have been generated starting from the Sales Order. To be noted that the above report is exported from the system and uploaded on the Dashboard on daily base and that can be also uploaded upon specific request.
