Fixed bin replenishment between storage locations

Hi

I'm trying to set up the following replenishment flow using Std. customizing, but is failing due to storage location determination in the TR.

Setup:

Warehouse: A

Storage location 0001 (set to standard storage location) (primary shipping location)

Storage location 0002 (a different building 500m away.)

Storage type 001 (picking storage type) (belongs to s.loc 0001)

Storage type 002 (back stock) (Belongs to s.loc 0001

Storage type 003 (full pallets just received from production) (belongs to s.loc 0002)

I'm trying to run a fixed bin replenishment flow into storage type 001 using LP21. When converting the TR to a TO, SAP requires the storage location to be filled, and as i have two storage locations assigned to the warehouse, it requires me to set a standard storage location in customizing. So i have set 0001 as standard storage location in customizing, but doing so, my TO is automatically getting populated with 0001.

The issue here is that some times, materials have not yet moved from the production reciept location to the central warehouse, and so I would like to replenish directly from s.loc 0002, storage type 003, but obviously, SAP cannot find any stock in this storage type as all stock here are belonging to 0002.

I found the following note in SAP documentation and followed the instructions but to no avail.

https://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp60_sp/helpdata/en/98/90c95360267214e10000000a174cb4/frameset.htm

"You can manage stock in interim storage areas in other storage locations than for stock within the warehouse. You use this function, for example, for availability checks if you manage your own production storage location, or if you manage stock (which is not yet available) in the goods receipt area in a storage location other than the storage location for unrestricted stock.

If you manage the interim storage areas in storage locations other than the storage types within the warehouse, transfer requirements are created for stock removal or putaway, for which no stock is available in the warehouse. In this case, the system first determines the storage location in which the stock is available and then creates a posting change, with which you execute a posting change for the stock in question from one IM storage location to another IM storage location."

Hope you can help

Hi Torben,

Have you done the config for allow -negative stock for your interim storage type also in define fixed bin strategy?

What is your replenishment mvt. type? is it 319 or 320? config screenshot for WM-->Activities-->Transfer etc. will be better to describe the issue.

Regards,

Avik

Hi,

Also Please check ,if it is possible scenario for you.

-->Instead of defining standard storage location in SPRO( Since you have multiple possible option for a WMS),Any of the below SMOD enhnacement might help you to logically determine(Via exit-coode) the storage location in which the stock is available and then creates a posting change.

MWMTO001 Enhancements for end of transfer order generation

MWMTO002 Enhancements at end of transfer order confirmation

MWMTO003 Own stock placement strategy

MWMTO004 Own stock removal strategy

MWMTO007 Palletization and storage type search for stock placeme

MWMTO008 Storage type search for stock removal
