WM - Picking of specific serial number

Hello everyone,

this question is for WM not EWM (but there seems not to be a tag for WM anymore).

we have a scenario where the sales person has to pick a specific serial number already in the customer order. This specific SN has then to be picked for the outbound delivery.

If you would use MM/IM only, this would not be a problem. There I can easily pick the correct serial number. But with WM involved it seems that I have to create the transfer order beforehand and have to pick a material which might not be the SN we have to pick.

I also tried to activate HUs for this matter but this seemed not to help for picking the correct SN in the warehouse. Am I missing something here or is it really not possible with WM?

Best regards,

the tag for WM is Logistics Execution.

To your question: no, WM does not know where in the warehouse a specific SN is, so you can not control picking for it. With Handling Unit Management active it should work, as when you pack a SN controlled material in an HU, you need to say which SNs. you pack and by that you should know where it in the warehouse a SN is.

It can be achieved, using enhancement, develope one program, you will pick quantity and assigned serial to Outbound delivery once it is done then pgi is done, just think u will get it

long time I worked on same process but it was already running

4 years back I worked on the process where it was already running .
