Addition to Existing Stock / Empty Bin

Hi Experts,

I have a case where Addition to Existing Stock is not happening. My scenario goes like this: Our storage type has many bins and each bin has a capacity of storing only 16 Pallets. We like to restrict number of Pallets in a bin by Capacity check (Weight of Pallet). In order to do this, we activated Putaway rule as "Addition to Existing Stock / Empty Bin" in the storage type. We maintained maximum weight in the bin as well and each Pallet has some weight. I already placed a pallet using search strategy and it updated weight in the bin as well, so that remaining capacity in the bin has reduced now. When I try placing another Pallet, system is proposing a new bin and not the existing bin. There is enough capacity in the existing Bin. I would like to know why system is looking for a Empty bin and not adding stock to existing bin. My Storage type settings is attached. Request you to check and help.

I can achieve this requirement using Bulk Storage, but in my opinion, bulk is something related to open space where we dump the stock. But, in my case, I will have racks for each section and each section will be assigned with few bins and each bin will accomodate 16 Pallets.

FYI: We are not using POSC, LOSC, Bin Type.

Thank You, Ravi

    Hi,

    Are you using batches?

    The Addition to stock will search for stock with identical attributes only, which is same product, same batch, same stock type, etc.

      Hi Natalia,

      Thanks for your response. After different permutations and combinations, I finally achieved the requirement without any BADI. Here is what I have done.

      There are 2 ways, we can have addition to stock for batches where different batches can be mixed in same bin.

      1. Use Bulk Storage Type and maintain Available Qty Batches to Batch Neutral in Storage Type settings.

      2. Use Standard Storage Type and maintain Available Qty Batches to Batch Neutral in Storage Type settings. Adding to this, we also need to maintain Putaway Rules as General Storage Area in Storage Type Search Strategy in Goods Receipt Process.

      With the above 2 options, I am able to achieve my requirement.

      Thanks a lot Natalia, Ajit, CK Reddy, Juergen for your kind help.

    Hi Ravi,

    Can you make the option for the filed ' Level: Addition to Stock' as blank ( Addition to Stock at Bin Level ) and try.

    And also check any putaway rule is maintained for your putaway strategy level.

    Hi Ravi,

    Hope you are well.

    Addition to Natalia, It is happening due to quant, I guess It might be different Batches having different shelf life or other parameters in different HU.

    Please check the below parameter in Storage type settings . ( QuantAddnStk SLED- 2 as per attached screen shot ).

    QuantAddnStkGRD

    QuantAddnStk SLED

    QntAddnStk CertNo.

    QntAddnStk alt. UoM.

    Kindly check with your business , then change as per your need.

    Also let us know if you need further assistance.

    Best Regards,

    Ajit

    EWM --> Putaway of Different Stock Types into same bin

    Hi Experts,

    My requirement is to do Putaway of different Stock Type like F2&Q4 into the same bin.

    My Putaway Strategy is Addition to Existing Stock / Empty Bin

    Defined a new stock type group(FQ) and assigned the Stock Type (F2&Q4) to this Stock Type Group.

    In Search Sequence for Putaway mentioned the Stock Type Group also.

    Still it is suggesting the Empty Bin not the Bin which contains same Product / Batch.

    Kindly suggest how this can be requirement achieved.

    Regards

    Ramesh.R
