Layout-Oriented Storage Control in EWM

Layout-Oriented Storage Control:

For specific storage types in the warehouse it might be necessary to move the goods via an interim storage type, for example an elevator to move from one floor to the other.


Set Up:

Maintain interim storage types

LOSC Settings:

Create Inbound delivery in ECC

T Code : VL31N



HU is required to work with LOSC ,since we have not activated ID point ‘or’ pick point




Now ECC inbound delivery distributed to EWM as a inbound delivery notification


Sap easy access-SCM Extended Warehouse Management-Extended Warehouse Management-Delivery Processing-Inbound Delivery-Maintain Inbound Delivery Notification

T Code : /SCWM/IDN


One inbound delivery is created automatically through PPF actions


Create WTs


Check these are HU warehouse tasks


Now two WTs are created


Go to monitor to check the WTs against inbound delivery

T Code : /scwm/mon


Here we can see one WT from GRSTAGE area to final put away bin & second WT is from GRSTAGE area to intermediate bin

Now confirm the open WT ( GRSTAGE to intermediate bin)



Now one new WT is created ( from First intermediate bin to second intermediate bin)


Now confirm the open WT



Now check the waiting WT , it is updated with new source bin to final putaway bin


Confirm the open WT to finish the putaway activity



Now HU Is placed in bin as per the putaway strategy

T Code : /N/SCWM/MON

      Nice blog, short but clear.

      One addition: it might be useful to add a screenshot of the Warehouse Process Type and highlight the 'Select HU w/o Storage Process' setting. In your scenario, this setting probably defines that you have a HU WT instead of a Product WT.

      Hi Oliver, I need at my LOSC proccess work with products as well (without HU).

      Have you alerady tried the set up LOSC for Product WT?

      It will helps me a lot, because I´m stuck at my EWM project 🙁

      Hi Radek,

      I'm afraid that working with HU's is a prerequisite for using LOSC or POSC. Please refer to this link for more info:

      To make full use of the EWM potential and capabilities, Handling Units are pretty much essential from my point of view. You might want to consider using HU's in your project as well.

      Hi, very nice setting scenario.

      Unfortunately, this setting doesn´t work for LOSC without HU. I tried to activate ID point, but the proccess doesn´t work 🙁

      Have you already tried the set up LOSC without HU?


      Thank you for your help!
