Picking full pallet with multiple Pick-HU’s

Introduction:

In real life scenario, client’s picking process can be vastly customized and may require various configuration on different topics to achieve one specific need.

Today, I am writing on one of the very common requirements on picking from HU managed bin where below condition should get fulfilled –

  • System should create HU pallet task instead of product task
  • System should create auto Pick-HU based on no. of WT (multiple pick HU for multiple WT)
  • System should allow user to pick any HU’s from the source bin.
  • System should create maximum 2 WT in each WO.

Configuration to achieve these requirements –

  • WPT Configuration
  • QC Configuration
  • Storage Type Configuration
  • WOCR Creation
  • PACKSPEC Creation
  1. WPT Configuration –

PATH – SPRO – SCM EWM – Cross Process Settings – WT – Define Warehouse Process Type

Round Whole Unit = 1 (Storage Type Decides – Storage Type Config has the same field – where we can decide the behavior of the system – useful when we are using the same WPT for multiple storage types)

WPT Determination –

PATH – SPRO – SCM EWM – Cross Process Settings – WT – Determine Warehouse Process Type

we can use below standard parameters to determine WPT, I have used Document type and Delivery Priority combination to trigger my WPT.

  1. QC Configuration –

We define quantity classification in the warehouse to specify the packing unit in which a product is put away/ stored in given storage type.

PATH – SPRO – SCM EWM – Cross Process Settings – WT – Define Quantity Classifications.

Define Unit of Measure attributes –

We assign a quantity classification to a unit of measure (UoM). The system uses the quantity classification we assign here to determine the storage type search sequence for putaway and stock removal.

PATH – SPRO – SCM EWM – Master Data – product – Catch Weight – Define Unit of Measure attributes.

 

  1. Storage Type Configuration –

PATH – SPRO – SCM EWM – Master Data – Define Storage Types

  • Level of Availability = 1 (Storage bin level – the system creates the warehouse task without reference to a HU, which means that the created warehouse task does not contain a specific HU. The warehouse employee can select any HU from the given source storage bin.)
  • HU Requirement – X (HU Required – HUs are mandatory in the storage type. All stock must be kept in HUs. Stock without an HU is not allowed in a storage bin.)
  • Qty Classification – P (pallet – Describes in which packaging unit a product is stored in this storage type)
  • Round to whole unit – 2 (Round down to a single unit – The attribute is used to avoid partial pallets, and to create individual warehouse tasks for each pallet during stock removal.)

Conduct other storage type settings –

  • Generate and assign AA to storage type.
  • Create Storage bin and sort the bin.
  • Add HU managed stock to the bin.
  • Define stock removal strategy.
  1. WOCR Creation –

PATH – SPRO – SAP EWM – Cross process settings – WO – Define Limit/pack/WOCR

Define LIMIT for creation of WOCR

  • item per WO = 2 (Maximum no. of WT/ WO – in our case – we want maximum 2 WT per WO)
  • WT per HU = 1 (No. of WT per HU, we want individual HU for each WT)

Define Pack Profile for Pick-HU –

Define WOCR –

  1. PACKSPEC Creation –

T – code # /SCWM/PACKSPEC – create PACKSPEC for test material

Define # 0BDL condition for pack profile # ZTST which we defined in WOCR.

Update Quantity Classification – Pallet at main level – warehouse data.

Test Data –

OB Del – 19*303 created with 2 pallets of item # ABCAF.

Storage bin# PL10-01-001 stock overview –

Upon creating the order, system created 1 WO with 2 WT and 2 pick-hu as expected.

RF Execution steps –

Picking with WO –

Enter 669 and the system shows two pick-HU’s. enter next to proceed.

On next RF picking screen, Source HU field is empty – hence, user can select any HU. (Used for pallet storage where too many HU’s are stored in the bin so user can select any easily pickable HU)

Pick both pallets and then hit enter and system will present staging tasks.

In staging, the system will ask the user to stag pallet to staging zone.

Once both pallets are staged – we can continue with remaining activity such as packing, loading or GI.

Conclusion 

This blog post walks you through various steps involved in EWM stock picking such as WOCR, Storage Type and WPT settings and PACKSPEC config.
