Physical Inventory in WM



I got some questions related to physical inventory.

Our customer wants a physical inventory based on the material (both for IM and WM). In WM "next empty bin" for putaway and "FIFO" for picking are used.

During the physical inventory process the following should be possible:

1) Per day a certain amount of materials should be inventoried (depending on the time the warehouse worker has time for that). That means in case of WM it should be possible to enter the quantity of materials to be inventoried and the inventory document then contains all the bins where the material is.

2) A report that shows which materials are already inventoried and which are not inventoried so far.

The only possible physical inventory method in SAP for 1) could be cycle counting as this provides the information in MARC when the last inventory was done. For all other methods (annual, continous) this information is stored in the bin only. But I could not find anything to enter the amount of materials I want to inventory. If I use cycle counting I would get all materials the first time running LX26. Sure I can select 50 bins per document and only activate some of the documents but then it could happen that the same material is in more than one document.

2) No standard report available.

Is there a way to do that in standard SAP? In case it involves changes where do you see them?
