Picking Area in EWM +S4hana Embedded

Dear Team,

We are implementing Embedded EWM(1909) to a customer. Currently they are using ECC-WM.

In the current system some processes related to putaway and RF queue determination (both standard +custom logic) is based on "Picking Area". And client wanted to leverage the picking area functionality in EWM too. Its critical for them

They want to see this field(Picking area) in bin master too.

As we know there is no picking area in EWM.

Can someone suggest me the best approach for this, hope we cant leverage the activity area.

    Hi HariKrishna Yerramsetti

    As per my understanding, you should consider them as storage type for better control of Processes. Example: Pick Face might be picking area where you can take split quantities (Loose stocks i.e, case/cartoon/eaches...but not whole pallet) to fulfill the small customer order request, it might the lower bins of a whole racking system or it can be different physical place...

    Advantages: Putaway, Replenishment and ...etc would work independently.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    PS: EWM and WM has different architecture so redesign the process whenever possible.

    Kind Regards,
