automatic work center bin determination during packing in outbound with POSC

I am testing the basic outbound process-1G2 of S4HANA.

During this process when we confirm the first YOPI, system is proposing the packing center work center storage bin automatically. Can you guide me on what basis system determined this bin.


Here are the settings (config & Master data) which I referred and couldn't draw any conclusion.

If we see there are multiple storage bins in storage type:Y831. How does system pick any one of them with out any previous assignment in above settings.

  • Thought of sharing my observations, hence updating my question.

    came across sap note:SAP Note:2477343 which helped me to draw following conclusions

    1. In Y831 storage putaway rule 3-cosolidation group is chosen. Hence for the first time, i.e. for the consolidation group in the delivery system checks the entry in table /SCWM/BINDST-Assignment Table: Fixed Bins - Distribution Group.

    2. If there is an entry, then bin for the respective entry is picked. Else system tries to determine the storage from table /SCWM/LAGPS as per the sort sequence determined for the activity area.

    3. Once system is able to find the storage bin, then respective bin entry is passed to table /SCWM/BINDST and Fixed Bin type"2-Fixed Storage Bin for Distribution Group" is assigned to the bin which can be viewed in /SCWM/LS03

    4. Entry in /SCWM/BINDST is removed based on config SPRO->SAP Reference IMG->SCM Extended Warehouse Management->Extended Warehouse Management->Goods Receipt Process->Strategies->Delete Fixed Bin Assignments

    5. SAP suggests to execute a correction report from note:1560507 once above config is done to clear off any existing entries.

    In your case the bin sorting decides the bin determination. Check Y831 Activity Area bin sorting, tcode /SCWM/SBST.

    Best regards
