    To do that you have to assign the fixed bin in mateiral master and define the strategy for fixed bins.

    This putaway strategy is used when a material is to be stored in a fixed bin in a storage type. This strategy is used primarily in storage types from which picking is done manually. You define the fixed bin in the material master record (the warehouse view).

    The following figure is an example of the fixed bin strategy.

    When you define the storage type record to use this strategy,

    Enter f in the Putaway strategy field.

    Enter x in the Addition to stock field to allow for addition to existing stock.

    Enter a numeric code for the type of checking in the Capacity check method field to activate capacity checking.

    If you try to transfer a material without a fixed storage bin into a storage type that has a fixed bin strategy, the system issues an error message. Therefore when you create the warehouse data view for the material master record, you must enter a fixed bin storage type in the organization level window. When you enter the storage type at this level, the system displays data fields specifically for the storage bin on the WM data entry screen. Be sure to enter a fixed storage bin in the Storage bin field.

    It is possible,use fixed bin strategy for your materials. So you will always get TOs to move the material into this certain bin.

      Yes, Fixed Bin strategy is the correct one. In addition, we did in a real good sense, some time in 1998, by defining bin number as material# itself. Additional infput for you, if helps!
