Storage locations (ROD & AFS) setup in EWM S4 Hana 1809

Hi All,

We are implementing S4Hana 1809 to the client.

Now are at deciding the customer enterprise structure.

From EWM standpoint, we need to map Plant and SLoc to Warehouse number(S4) and also Availability Group we need to setup

Now my question here is about storage location.

Customer wants 4 Locations 1. Managing FERT materials, 2. Managing ROH materials 3. Production Supply area, 4. Packaging Materials.

I know we can work with 1. ROD and AFS locations or 2. without ROD, only with AFS with F2 stock type.

Which is the best option to propose. Is there any challenge or drawback if we work with only AFS(F2 Stock type).

Before we propose I want know the differences/advantages or disadvantages of these to explain to the customer clearly.

Please help me to understand and the best possible option with reason.

Thanks,

    Hello HariKrishna,

    it very much depends on your client's business scenarios. But there are few generic topics like you would certainly need to generate inspection lot before your stock becomes AFS, or to clear the customs or for other legal or tax reporting issues (like bonded warehouse). Certainly you can't pick goods, which is undergoing putaway process either. But true - in general you want to make your stock available as quickly as possible.

    Hi,

    "Customer wants 4 Locations 1. Managing FERT materials, 2. Managing ROH materials 3. Production Supply area, 4. Packaging Materials."

    OK. 4 Storage locations means 4 availability groups. Times 4 location independent stock types, so you require 16 EWM stock types.

    "I know we can work with 1. ROD and AFS locations or 2. without ROD, only with AFS with F2 stock type."

    No. You can work with as many storage locations you want or as you require.

    "Which is the best option to propose. Is there any challenge or drawback if we work with only AFS(F2 Stock type)."

    In case of 4 storage locations you don't work only with AFS. Because that is just one storage location. You would also probably NOT work with ROD / AFS, because that is a very specific scenario and the customer most probably does not require this for this warehouse. If it is required, you have to physically separate the stock for different destination storage locations in different storage types.

    And it is EWM. NOT eWM - Duh!
    And if your question includes the word "transfer order" - do NOT tag the question with Extended Warehouse Management!
