Putaway strategies

I want to know how SAP works for putaway strategies.

Suppose there are 5 bins B1,B2,B3,B4,B5. B3 is empty. Rest have mat M1,M2, , M4,M5.

Bins B1,B2 have storage type ST1, while B3,B4,B5 have ST2.

No bin is fully filled. No fixed bin concept is being used.

Now when M1 & M3 are received where will they be placed?

Also, which is the best strategy for the above case?

      Hi vs

      Every bin has a capacity say bin b1 has a capacity of 1000kg ...if the capacity is reached then material looks fr the next empty bin...if no empty bin exists then it throws an error saying no storage bin exists fr storage type....

      Fr ex u have a storage type for raw material ROH u need to have atleast one storage section say u have defined 2 sections 001...slow moving section 002 moving section...under each section u define a structure of storage bins ..

      if m1 is raw material and 002 is the storage section that u have defined in materail master ..then after migo the material will go into storage type roh ...section 002 and bin defined under that..u can define whether u want diff materials in same bin ...material with different batches in same all depends on ur confg...
