Difference between storage type and storage bin level replenishment

Hello experts,

I have been doing hands on to understand difference between storage type level and storage bin level replenishment.However I have come across a few queries that I would like to present here for member's views and suggestions-

Replenishment activated at storage type level (This has got fixed bin putaway strategy)

Product A is assigned to two fixed bins B1 and B2.

In product master storage type tab max and min qty have been maintained.

When I run replenishment system proposes a replenishment qty of 24 EA and on creating warehouse task,it is only considering bin B2 and creates replenishment task for qty 22 EA (2 EA is missing but I am not focusing on it).

Questions:1 ) Does that mean for storage type level replenishment system always considers the first bin it finds for the product irrespective of capacity of bin?

2) If capacity is considered, where do I maintain bin capacity?

3)If I can make system consider bin capacity even for a storage type level replenishment strategy then what is the difference between storage type and storage bin level replenishment?

    1) + 2) if you maintain bin capacity in /scwm/LS02 and maximum storage type quantity in warehouse product master/storage type tab, system tries to create warehouse task up to what comes first.

    In case the bin capacities B1+B2 is 20EA, you can have 24 EA maximum qty on storage type level, but it will never be reached.

    On the other side if max qty for storage type is 24 EA and you have unlimited bin capacity, system will never put the stock into the other bin.

    You can maintain the order of bins through bin sorting.

    3) Having replenishment on storage type level, you can have system to assign fixed bins automatically up to the maximum allowed number of bins (e.g. in specific storage section). Your bins can have variable capacities.

    I hope this will be helpful.
