WM removal strategy M (Large small qty)


Could anyone tell me if it is possible to use removal strategy M (large / small qty) without the batch being determined automatically in the TO? Other strategies dont have this behaviour and I need the batch field to be blank in the TO when using removal strategy M.

    Hi Joris,

    As per my knowledge, Removal strategy M (Large / small qty) can be used without the batch being determined in the Transfer order. It always check the control quantity maintained in the material master WM2 view and based on that it suggest the picking. it has no direct relation with Batch.

    Hope the below mentioned point from Knowledge base LE-WM will help to get more understanding in detail

    Removal Strategies in WM

    M - Large/small quantities included (Cascading Storage)

    • Cases there may be different requirements for a material per transfer order.
    • Example some customers may require a pallet, box or pair of a certain material, where there are 10 pairs per box and 5 boxes’ per pallet.
    • If the material can be sold in pallets, boxes and pairs and all are stored in the same warehouse, it may make sense to use this strategy.
    • So, using the example above, you could set up 3 different storage types one each for Large, Medium and Small quantities.
    • Depending on the transfer order requirement for stock, the system should find the most relevant storage type for picking.
    • In order to identify which type is required, the system checks the “Control Quantity” field in the material master.
    • In the Storage Type Search Table in customizing, each storage type also needs to be defined per size so that first small, then medium, then large is searched. (Movement type 603 is the standard movement type for this strategy)
