Pick Pack Pass Process in EWM

Pick Pack Pass Process in EWM

we use this function to co-ordinate picking packing, and transportation of products in different activity areas of your warehouse. For example you transport the products from one activity area to another using conveyor. From organizational point of view, an activity area can correspond to an aisle for which a warehouse worker is responsible. When the warehouse worker has picked a WO in an area, the goods are passed to next area.

The movement from one activity area to another can be done by the automatic conveyor system. There may also be a pick by light in the various zones to support the picking process in that zone.

The pick pack pass process can only be used in RF Environment.

There are 2 types of controls:

  • System Driven: in this the next WO in the sequence is determined by the sequence assigned to the activity areas that we joined.
  • User Driven: in this the next WO in the sequence is determined by the user or the MFS.



Step1: Create a storage type for pick pack pass.

   Note: you can use existing storage type also.

SPRO –> IMG –> EWM –> Master Data –> Define Storage type.

Step2: Define Storage Section (Optional).


Step3: Define the storage bin structures to generate bins as below.



Aisle 01 –> Section PP01  –> Activity Area PP01

Aisle 02  –> Section PP02   –> Activity Area PP02

Aisle 03  –> Section PP03   –> Activity Area PP03

Step4: Generate the storage bins.

    You can generate the bins in /SCWM/LS10.

Step5: Create the start end bins.

   Go to tcode /SCWM/LS01.

Step6: Create activity areas.

   SPRO –> IMG –>  EWM –> Master Data –> Activity Area.


Step7: Assign Bins to Activity Areas.

    Here we will assign

All bins of aisle 02 –> PP01

All Bins of aisle 03 –> PP02

All Bins of aisle 04 –> PP03

Step8: Assign Sort Sequence for Activity Area.


 Step9: Sort the Bins (/SCWM/SBST).


Step10: Maintain Start End Bins for Activity Area (/SCWM/SEBA).


 Step11: Create Materials (Optional) And Maintain Stock for each material in respective activity area.

  In My Case I am using three materials

E3900PP01  –> for this material stock maintained in bins of activity

Area PP01 (Aisle 02).

E3900PP02  –>  for this stock maintained in bins of activity area PP02

(Aisle 03).

E3900PP03  –> for this material stock is maintain in activity area PP03

(Aisle 04)

Step12: Join the Activity Areas.

SPRO –> IMG –> EWM –> Cross Process Settings –> Warehouse Order –> Join Activity Areas.


Step13: Define Warehouse Order Creation Rule.

  Pack Profile – P001.

Warehouse Order Creation Rule


Step14: Define packaging specification for creating auto pick HU.



 Step15: Maintain search sequence for WOCR.


Step16: Maintain Queue Determination Criteria.


     Note: Make Sure you maintained the corresponding access sequence also.

Step17: Maintain Resource Group.

Step18: Maintain Queue Sequence per resource group.

Step19: Maintain Resource (Optional).

Step20: Maintain User (Optional).


Step21: Create a Delivery with the three products.

Step22: Create & Confirm WT for the three items in EWM.





Select All & Click on Create + Save.


Step23: Now go to monitor check the no of warehouse orders & their higher level WO.



  • For the WO’s the 40000121, 40000122, 40000123 the Higher Level WO is 40000120.
  • The first WO 40000121 is in Open status & the rest are in waiting status.
  • For the WO 40000121 the Subsequent WO is 40000122, similarly for the WO 40000122 the subsequent WO is 40000123 & for the WO 40000123 no subsequent WO since this is the last one.

Check the Higher Level WO 40000120 In the Monitor.

WOCR: PPPP, Queue: OUTBOUND, Activity Area: PPPP.

Check Box Warehouse Order Means this WO Contains another WO.

Step24: Maintain Default WPT For the Resource In Warehouse Control.

Step25: Processing in RF.


Log on to RF.




               Click on F2 to create a pick HU.

Pick HU Is Created Now Click on Next.

Do the Scanning (Or) Enter Manually then Click on Enter.


                   Do the Scanning (Or) Enter Manually then Click on Enter.

After Clicking Enter System Will Automatically Determines the Second WO 40000122 in the      sequence as below.

               Note: Do not create a Pick HU Again.

Click on next.

Do the Scanning (Or) Enter Manually then Click on Enter.

Do the Scanning (Or) Enter Manually then Click on Enter.

         After Clicking Enter System Will Automatically Determines the Third WO 40000123 in the sequence which is last as below.

Click on Next.

Do the Scanning (Or) Enter Manually then Click on Enter.

if you observe the above the system was determining the GI-ZONE1 for the last WO.

Do the Scanning (Or) Enter Manually then Click on Enter.

Step26: Now Observe the Outbound Delivery Order.

    Picking –> Completed

Packing –> Completed.

Select the HU & Click on Display HU.

Now Do the Goods Issue to complete the Process.

Updates to the ECC.

      Hi Vamsi,

      Thank you very much for this detailed overview of the PP&P process. This saves me a lot of time as I don't have to set up a prototype myself now.

      I have 2 questions, I hope you can answer them for me.

      1) The second-in-line WO that is pushed to a user in the system guided RF picking transaction informs the user about which handling unit to start picking with, but not about the (bin) location of that handling unit. How should the user know where to find this HU? Is this something you have to organise in the physical warehouse routing, or can the system help with this?

      2) Where do I make the distiction between a system driven or a user driven process? Is this simply another logical RF transaction in /SCWM/RFUI or do you need to make settings for this?

      Kind regards,

      Bas Willems

      Hi Bas,


      For your point1, we also had similar requirement. You have enhance pick-Hu screen to show current location of the pickHU so that user can direct go there and start picking the pickHU. We also had requirement to verify the pickHu by scanning bar code.

      Hi Vamsi,


      What is the usage of WPT 3050 in that config?

      Hey Tufan,

      this WPT will place the Pick HU from the starting bin on the ressource. So the picking can start.

      Hello and thanks a lot for this blog post, 


      are there any further Information about the Warehouse Order Creating Rules ? I´m asking for the the Inbound Sorting "CONS" and the WO Sorting "PIPA" and how they are configured in the system.


      Thanks a lot regards

      I would ask why you named your first aisle as 1 and activity area as one but you start your bin in aisle 2. This seems a little confusing unless you do not have bins on aisle 1. Please clarify.

      good blog!!

      One question. Is it possible to add a second pick-hu, if the first one is already full. I have tried it, but it was not possible.

      Hi Vamshikrishna,


      Thanks for the wonderful prcoess explaination.

      I have doubt here, can this be configured without Auto Pick HU and Pack spec ?

      Also can this be configured on EWM 9.4 version ?
