Determine Storage bin Blank while Put away-SAP EWM

Introduction: Now a days in most of the business scenarios in complex warehouses want to put away the material in whatever the bin they want (System should not determine the destination bin, instead system should determine till the storage type only).

How we are going to achieve this? What are the options available.

– To achieve the above requirement, following steps needs to be followed

1.Storage type configuration

2.WPT configuration

3.Put away strategies

4.Product Master

5.Testing

 

1.Storage type config in which destination should not be determined

IMG Path: SCM Extended Warehouse Management – Extended Warehouse Management – Master Data – Define Storage Types

In storage type in the put away control section select WT GENERIC as 2-Only Storage Type, that means when-ever our     put away strategy search for the storage type, section and bin it will search till storage type only so that user can put away the material what ever the bin he wants to put away in that particular Z030 Storage type.

Put away is done.

 

So by above configurations and testing  now you got to know how system is not going to determine the bin. Please do comment and give your valuable suggestions

      Nicely explained. In the old days of LE-WM, I used to implement similar functionality with a put away strategy to a dummy bin called e.g. "MANUAL" and letting a warehouse person confirm a transfer order with a change of the destination bin. That also worked nicely.
