Serial numbers in WM Storage location control

Hello Experts,

How does storage location control in WM work with serialized parts? Currently when I transfer receive a serialized part in one Sloc (stg. Typ. 901) and transfer it to its destination bin the Sloc-to-Sloc transfer fails since it is a serialized part. If I remove serial number requirement from movement type 311 then the Sloc in the serial number is inconsistent. Is there a standard way of handling 311 movement via Storage Location Control for serialized parts?

Thanks in advance.

ECC WM doesn't support Serial number management it is at IM level only, Could you please share the process steps which you are following

How are you triggering your Sloc to Sloc move?

1) Post in IM and then process PCN in WM.

2) Perform LQ01 in WM.

If you are following option 2 then I am afraid system will fail Material document posting as you cannot enter Serial Numbers in WM. SAP WM does not support Serial Number Management.

I would advice you to follow option 1 if your business accepts the process. Pls refer below note:

1618182 - Error message M7 175 is issued in transaction LQ01

Thanks for the reply. Option 1 is not feasible for us. For now we are receiving the product in the final SLOC so that no 311 occurs. Not the best solution but just a manual work around.

An option is to write a custom front end to hide the complexity from the end user. In the background, you could do the IM movement followed by the WM movement. If you are using RF barcode scanners, this makes even more sense to wrap it all together and not have the serial numbers manually entered.
