2, Material 781 is used for the demo of this blog. See the WM1 and WM2 views.




3, Maintain the capacity data for SUT.


For warehouse number NM1, we maintain the capacity usage for SUT type E1 and IP, the value is 600 and 500.

Now we can see that the field “Total Capacity” is mandatory now. See below data for storage bin 15-02-02.

It means that this storage bin can store material 781 the max quantity is 500 EA.



4, Execute the transaction code MIGO to do GR for material 781.The quantity is 501 EA. Observe the SAP response.


After MIGO posting, SAP switch to the transaction LT06, then we can continue to execute the put away transaction of WM level.


Click the Palletization button, we got below screen

The storage unit type E1.


We tried to place the inventory to the storage bin 15-02-02(storage type Z03), failed.

SAP pop up error message.

      Nice blog indeed.

      You could have explained the function of "Active capacity" check box that is active on your first screenshot.

      Also the note 392776 - Capacity check in the Warehouse Management sheds some light on various capacity check methods.

      Best regards
