Storage locations as storage areas

We do not use Warehouse Management module. We are thinking of creating many storage locations (100+) to represent storage areas within a warehouse. This way, we will be able to locate stocks by referencing their SAP storage location against physically defined storage area. E.g. storage location A100 will have a corresponding physical location within the warehouse also termed as A100.

Like to know is this a viable solution. What will be the impact for other modules like MM? For instance during goods receipt/issue. How about maintenance wise? Will this solution create a maintenance headaches?

    You can use as many storage location as possible.

    while raising the P.O you have give the storage location and while doing MIGO the material will be stored in the location.

    While issuing material from that location you have to issue there will not any implications in MM

    This seems to be a good idea. The possible impact I can think of are detailed below:

    1) Having too many storage locations means that your material master has to be extended for each storage location it will be stored in. This has an impact on the database size and table (MARD) size with a possible impact on the performance.

    2) Also, look at the impact while recording physical inventory in SAP.

    3) Then there is an impact if your company decides to implement warehouse management in the future.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi,

    You can create str location for you requirement.

    This A100 is logicaly true. Because many companies asking Reports in stage wise ie, in A100 level need all pending prod order, inventory.

    No need to create Z programs to get the data in str location level.

    So implementing str location corresponding physical location is useful to extend materials in future.

    Regards,
