Purpose

The purpose of this page is to explain the customizing to set an Inbound Process with Storage Control..

Overview

  • Outbound Process - Scenario 
  • Outbound Process - Customizing
  • Function Modules

Complex Outbound Process with Storage Control - Scenario 

Let's take the following example:

 

In this scenario we have a lot of flexibility:

  • Several Warehouse Tasks (each WT represents one step of the storage control);
  • Several Intermediate Storage can be used;
  • Both HU and Product WTs are used;
  • Intermediate storage types are found during WO creation and destination data is changed accordingly

Outbound Process with Storage Control - Customizing

List of necessary steps to customize a complex outbound process with storage control:

 

  1. Define process-oriented storage control
    1. Define storage process
    2. Assign external steps to storage process
  2. Define Warehouse Order Creation Rule
    1. Assign storage process
  3. Define warehouse process type
    1. Enter WOCR in warehouse process type
  4. Define control indicator for determining warehouse process type
    1. Enter control indicator in product master
    2. Set up determination of warehouse process type
  5. Specficy storage type search sequence for picking
  6. Staging area and door determination
    1. Link warehouse process type and staging data

 

1. Define process-oriented storage control 

SPRO → EWM → Cross-Process Settings → Warehouse Tasks → Define Process-Oriented Storage Control

a. Define Storage Process


b. Assign external steps to storage process

 

 

Field Information

AutoLB - Determines whether a warehouse task will be created at closing of a step or not. If the Auto WT setting is not set, the warehouse task will have to be created manually.

Prod/LU - Create putaway tasks with this step and it's needed for deconsolidation.

Duration - Compute an estimate of the total processing time. It's needed for Labor Management.

 

2. Define Warehouse Order Creation Rule

SPRO → EWM → Cross-Process Settings → Warehouse Order → Define WOCR

a. Assign storage process



3. Define Warehouse Process Type 

SPRO → EWM → Cross-Process Settings → Warehouse Tasks → Define Warehouse Process Type

 a. Enter storage process in warehouse process type


3. Define control indicator for determining warehouse process type

SPRO → EWM → Cross-Process Settings → Warehouse Tasks → Define Control Indicators for Determining Warehouse Process Types

 

a. Enter control indicator in product master 

Transaction /SCWM/MAT1

 

b. Set up determination of warehouse process type

SPRO → EWM → Cross-Process Settings → Warehouse Tasks → Determine Warehouse Process Type

 

4. Specficy storage type search sequence for picking

SPRO → EWM → Goods Receipt Process → Strategies → Storage Type Search → Specify Storage Type Search Sequence for Stock Removal (+ product master)



5. Staging area and door determination

a. Link warehouse process type and staging data

Transaction /SCWM/STADET_IN
