Inventory management - Moving to SAP WM - Next Steps

Hi All WM experts,

Currently we have our Stock managed via inventory mangement(SAP IM module - Storage location level).

We are planning to implement SAP WM ( SAP Warehouse Management Module )very soon.

What are the next steps in terms of transferring the stock from Storage location level to Storage bin level?

Please advise.

    Hi there,

    You have to maintain storage types, Storage sections,Storage bins ,Storage Units (Optional ) after creating the Warehouse and assigning it to the plant & Storage location.IE you have to create a Warehouse structure and decide upon strategies for putaway & Removals.

    Your question is not that simple to answer.

    But depending upon the Business procsesses involved You have to finalise the Bin types,Storage types,Strategies,Bin structure etc.

    The sap.help.com could be a useful link for all further details pl.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Nagarajan

    Thanks Nagarajan for your reply.

    My question is not related to warehouse structure or how to configure WM module.

    My question is what needs to be done to see the inventory at storage location level transferred to the Storage Bin level once SAP WM is implemented ?

    I think you should really evaluate your need for WM. There are some really creative things you can do in IM to sustain a fairly large inventory level.

    WM is a great tool for large storage locations with lots of movment in them, but it can be cumbersome and difficult to manage if you hold a lot of serialized pc's. Physical Inventory in WM, if you have serialized pc's, is going to be extreamly difficult w/ out some custom development. I'm sure there is more but you get the drift.

    Just make sure your inventory needs are large enough to require WM over IM.
