Rule based deconsolidation and distributive putaway

Hello Experts,

I am working on multiple cases of deconsolidation with rule based settings (where attribute for deco HU is set to 2).I would like to understand system behaviour on two of the cases i tested-

Case 1 : Two products packed in one HU going to bins in same AA.My storage type says HU 's are required.Here system is sending products to deconsolidation work center because i have two final WT for one HU.

Case 2 :Two products packed in one HU going to one common storage type.My storage type says HU 's not required.I have also checked do not putaway HU's check box.Here system is sending products to deconsolidation work center again.System wise i think again rule based settings are dominating and as i have two WT's for one HU they are going for deconsolidation. But logically this is not correct.When both products are going to one bin there is no need for deconsoliation.Is it possible to bypass decon. and do distributive putaway here?

I know there are a lot of algorithms that goes in deconsolidation. Can someone throw some light on how case two can be achieved.

Thanks!!

    Hi,

    Here in deconsolidation , we have attributes for two things.one is for mixed HU and another one is for putaway HU.

    If it is mixed HU and consolidation groups different...required to consolidate.

    If it is Putaway HU..system propose deconsolidation according to putaway WTs even though the single product 'or' multiple products are belong to same consolidation group.

    Hi Khushboo,


    As per SAP Standard ,

    Max no of WT in putaway HU setting will not help you in case 2 below for your reference.


    Define Attributes for Deconsolidation

    Use

    In this IMG activity, you can assign the following deconsolidation attributes to your defined activity areas:

    • Maximum number of warehouse tasks (WTs) in the deconsolidation handling unit (deconsolidation HU) as of which deconsolidation must occur
    • Maximum number of WTs in the putaway handling unit (putaway HU)

    You need these attributes in process-oriented warehouse control for the process step Deconsolidate. If the number of WTs exceeds the maximum permitted number of WTs in the deconsolidation HU, the deconsolidation HU is directed to a deconsolidation station. There you can distribute its contents to various putaway HUs.

    Requirements

    You must have defined activity areas.

    Standard settings

    The Maximum Number of WTs in the Deconsolidation HU should be greater than or the same as the Maximum Number of WTs in the Putaway HU.

    Activities

    If you want to use the step Deconsolidate in process-oriented warehouse control, define the Maximum Number of WTs in the Deconsolidation HU and the Maximum Number of WTs in the Putaway HU.

    Example

    You receive a deconsolidation HU with fifteen WTs, all of whose destination data is assigned to the same activity area. You have set the Maximum Number of WTs in the Deconsolidation HU to ten and the Maximum Number of WTs in the Putaway HU to five. This means that when process-oriented warehouse control is in operation, the HU is directed to a deconsolidation station (see Specify Deconsolidation Station) because the Maximum Number of WTs in the Deconsolidation HU has been exceeded.

    There, putaway HUs are created in the course of deconsolidation. After five product WTs have been repacked into the putaway HU, this HU is proposed for completion on the basis of the parameter Maximum Number of WTs in the Putaway HU and is therefore released for the subsequent process step Putaway.

    But We can achieve the scenario by creating new HU type group( New HU Type ) which will not take part in decon config.

    Specify Deconsolidation Station

    Use

    In this IMG activity, you define determination of the deconsolidation station. This process is dependent on the following:

    1. 1. The warehouse number
    2. 2. The source storage type
    3. 3. The handling unit type group (HU type group)
    4. 4. The destination activity area

    Thanks
