POSC+LOSC in Putaway

Hi All

I need help to configure below scenario in EWM. Warehouse receives the inbound HUs which can contains single material or multiple materials. For the normal HU, putaway should happen after unloading and for mixed HUs, putaway should happen after sorting. For this, I have configured de-consolidation and POSC. But somehow, it is not working. All kinds of HUs are coming to de-consolidation workcenter after unload. This is my issue one.

The other challenge here is the mixed HU will be de-consolidated based on material and moved to interim storage area before final putaway. Again here, they re-pack based on capacity of resource and then do putaway. This I have achieved partly by calling LOSC before putaway task in POSC. So, now I will get tasks to move HUs from de-consolidation area to interim storage area and then to final bin. But I am not able to do re-pack at interim storage area.

I have tried to put packing task before putaway task in POSC, and configured interim storage area as work center - LOSC is not triggered.

Any thoughts to solve these issues?

Thanks

    Change POSC flags

    IB01 flag both flags

    IB02 falg auto WT

    Check storage type role to accommodate your process of repacking in such place

    Or you can achieve Via VAS after decon on basis of material, so only mat which has vas packspec will go to pack station and if not it will not go to bin.

    • Hi Satish

      Could you please explain the steps in POSC? As of now my configs are like below.

      Unload - Rule based

      Deconsolidate - Rule based

      Repack - ???

      Putaway -- using my WPT

      1. Unload IB01 (create next task automatically & create Prod WT)

      2. Deconsolidate IB02 (create next task automatically)

      3. Repack OB02 (create next task automatically)

      4. Putaway IB03

      I have tried by defining interim storage area as storage type D or I. In both cases, there are no tasks created for repacking and could not repack manually since there are open warehouse tasks for putaway.

      Should I call another POSC at repacking step? (don't know if that works or not)

      Should I mark the WPT as replenishment task?

      Also another issue here is, if I don't use LOSC how can I guide MHU2 to interim storage area on rule based? Or if I enter dest.bin for repack external step, all deconsolidate HUs will be moved to interim storage area which should not happen.

      Thanks

    Hi,

    "

    OK, deconsolidaton as process step.

    - in POSC you can either enter a storage type / section / bin to your external step, that means that every HU moves via the deco workcenter. Or you can flag rule-based.

    - where do you assign the work center or storage bin when rule-based is used? That is the entry "specify deconsolidation station", as in the screenshot.

    - how does the rule-based work? For this you have TWO possibilites

    - when you assign storage bins to an activity area, you can assign a "deconsolidation group" (via the button, it is then in the field "consolidation group". That means if you have final warehouse tasks and they go to different bins in different activity areas with different deconsolidation groups the system moves via the deco work center. Bad luck if you have two materials which go into the same activity area, then the rule based does not work. And if you don't assign the deconsolidation group (or do it later and do not re-order the bins) it also does not work.

    - you can assign a maximum number of WTs in your deconsolidation and you putaway HU. This way also when moving into the same activity area rule based is also triggered. This you have to set up for your destination activity area under "Define attributes for deconsolidaton".

    Hi Sasidhar

    i just want to know that when i am creating 1 HU for 2 warehouse tasks. System is not determining bin-drop area otherwise it is determining bin-drop area.

    Mixed product is there in 1 HU at decon station. Can you confirm me it will go to Bin-drop?

    Regards
