Handling Unit Type Check at Putaway aginst storage bin Type
If we observe the above image, loose products ( without HUs ) stored in the lower level, carton boxes stored at the middle level, and Pallets stored at top level.]
It means the system able to identify suitable storage bins with reference to product packaging attributes ( without HUs ‘or’ with reference to different HU types ).
To achieve this it is required to activate ‘ HU Type Check ” at the storage type level under the putaway control area.

The HU type check and the storage bin type check are only performed if activated the attribute HU Type Check for the storage type.
Now, it is required to assign permitted HU types for putaway in this storage type
Define HU Types for Each Storage Type

here a blank entry also maintained to allow loose products into this storage type.
Assign Storage Bin Types to Storage Types
In this area, maintain different types of storage bin types within the storage type.

Define HU Types for Each Storage Bin Type
Maintain allowed storage bin types for each HU type, the system checks whether a storage bin can be used.

One blank entry ( ‘ ‘ ) in the HU type field maintained to allow in the bin type BT01. It means the system allows to store loose products in the storage bins, which are assigned with bin type ‘ BT01.’
HU Type ‘PALT‘ assigned for bin type ‘ BT02 ‘
HU Type ‘CABX‘ assigned to bin type ‘ BT03 ‘
Maintain storage bins with relevant bin types.
Maintain HU Types for packaging materials
Process flow for validating putaway process
Create inbound delivery and items pack into different packaging materials ( which are assigned to different HU Types in EWM ).
Out of three line items, two are packed in two different packaging materials and HUs are built.
As per the decentralized WMS parameters shipping notification distributed to EWM.
Check the inbound delivery in EWM system
Now check the HU details against inbound delivery
Create warehouse tasks
The system creates three WTs, one is product WT and two are HU WTs
- Product warehouse task
Here system performed HU type check and HU type is initial ( HU type is ‘ ‘ ( blank ) and assigns to Bin type ‘ BT01 ‘
2. HU warehouse task for carton box ( HU Type: CABX )
Here system performed HU type check and HU type ‘ CABX ‘ and assigns to Bin type ‘ BT02 ‘
3. HU warehouse task for carton box ( HU Type: PALT)
Here system performed HU type check and HU type ‘ PALT ‘ and assigns to Bin type ‘ BT03 ‘
Conclusion: We can perform the HU type check during putaway with maintaining ‘blank ‘ value also against required storage bin types also.
Highly appreciate for valuable comments and suggestions.
