How Display Fixed Bins works --/SCWM/MAT1 ?

Hello Experts

I am testing a simple inbound scenario and doing PUTAWAY for IBD.But each time I am doing PUTAWAY to a new Bin an entry gets added in GOTO>Display Fixed Bins in /SCWM/MAT1 ,although I haven't done any configurations for Fixed Bin in Product.I have copied the test Warehouse from standard warehouse 0001.

Can you pls elaborate on this .

    Hi

    You might want to check storage type settings if do not assign fixed bin automatically check is off and 'use fixed bin' check?

    Cheers,

    Along with the use fixed bin you are supposed to enter the value in Fixed bin mode fieed also. Two possible value you can enter

    1) Putaway to optimum fixed storage bin - In this case system will consider only those bin as a fixed bin which gets determined as a result of putaway algorith along with slotting (System doesn't consider storage bin for putaway which are mark for improvable as a result of slotting)

    2) Putaway to optimum fixed storage bin preferred - System consider improvable bin also as a part of fixed bin and suggest the putaway

    (This setting is recommend when you are planning to use slotting)

    Improvable bin - let's say material ABC is in storage bin 01-10-01 after slotting run system decide that stock should be moved to another bin then the bin 01-10-01 will be marked as improvable bin
