Is it necessary to have 2 Storage locations for F1 and F2 stock types to work in EWM ?

Dear Friends,

I have a basic question , is it necessary to have 2 slocs ROD and AFS to work with EWM?

If I want to work with single Sloc in ERP and that should allow both F1 and F2 stock then what should be the approach?

Currently I am having 1 sloc AFS which is assigned to availability group 002- F2 stock type.

But when I am trying to create putaway warehouse task system is giving me error stating below, where it is looking for F1 stock type. The final storage type FP01 have the" Mandatory" unchecked and blank availability group.

Same with WPT 1010 is having blank Availability group. Please help me understand the concept and guide me if this scenario is possible.

Regards,

Yogi

    Yes, we need to use both AFS and ROD.

    Hello Yogi,

    One storage location - behaving like AFS in the SAP examples - is sufficient to work with EWM.

    The reason why the example processes provided by SAP are using ROD/ AFS is to show how the integration into the availability check in the ERP modules works. With the separation an ERP user can see which material is not just physically in the warehouse but available for a sales process - in contrast to stock that is still in goods receipt processing. If you do not need this separation, you can work without it.

    Hi

    It is recommended but not mandatory. One storage location has potential to create operational issues due to putaway stock getting allocated for sales.

    If you still persist, check if AFS is the location maintained in ECC inbound delivery. I wonder if at the time of creating your inbound delivery there was already an entry on storage location mapping table for your other location which is why you have F1 stock coming in inbound delivery. Otherwise the delivery should have got stuck in inbound queue.

    Cheers,

    Amit

      Hi Amit,

      Thanks for your explanation. I tried few scenarios to get the understanding of AFS and ROD slocs.

      Mapped : AFS> F2 and ROD>F1 stock type

      1. Create Inb del in ECC: With ROD sloc 10 EA

      In EWM, Stock in Inb.Del not showing F1 stock and in Inb del showing also F1 stock. I am clicking the 'Goods Receipt' button and it triggered PPF and GR with 10 EA posted to ECC under ROD location.

      In this case my final storage type 0020 is having availability group 002 and 'mandatory' checked. But when I completed my WT for final putaway the stock gets saved into the bin in F1 stock and no posting change happens. the same stock is showing in ROD- 10 EA.

      Similarly created for AFS

      2. Create Inb del in ECC: With AFS sloc 10 EA

      at GR completion > material doc posted in ECC in ROD location with 10 EA

      when WT confirmed > Transfer posting happened and stock moved into AFS

      In both the scenarios, 0020 is having 002 av.grp and mandatory but in case 1 why stock got saved in F1 stock type in bin and why it didn't triggered any posting changes. Please help me understand or Am I missing anything.

    Yogi,

    One Storage location can be used. However in your case, the final storage type is blank for availability group, please update it with 002 and check. It should post F2.

    Thanks,

    Hari.
