    it all depend on the business process and requirement

    In one of my implementation we had a requirement to use AGV to move the pallet from warehouse to line side and in that case we were using Message type WMTORD to transfer the source and destination information (TO information) and WMTOCO to receive the confirmation back from AGV system

    Very carefully :)

    AGV's will have some time and sequence specific activities - for such things I would use a "live" interface using a technology such as web services or RFCs. This would also reduce data duplication and syncing headaches on the external system. It would mean some custom code on the SAP side to develop the interface though.

    • Get a warehouse management book - there is no AGV solution in WM, that will be your custom solution. And again you asked me the equivalent of "how do I create a production order", when nothing in PP has been setup. WM is a full module that has to be implemented first.
