WM capacity check method

Hi,

why in storage type definition there is the field "Act. capac." if there is the field "Capacity check method" ?

It is not necessary to select the "Capacity check method" to enable it ?

Best regards

    With this box you tell SAP to perfrom the capacity check already during the search for a storage bin.

    This will have impct on the performance.

    without this box flagged, SAP will first search for a possible bin (e.g. empty), and then check if the capacity is sufficient. If not sufficient then SAP will issue an error message and will not search for another bin.

    With this box flagged, SAP will search for a bin that has enough capacity.

    Example.

    You have a big box . And you have a rack where you have small and big bins.

    you cannot put the big box into the small bins.

    without this box flagged, SAP will first search for a possible bin (e.g. empty). the first hit is an empty small bin. SAP selects thsi bin, then calculates the quantity and raises an error.

    With this box flagged, SAP will directly look for a bin with enough capacity. it will not stop at the empty small bin, it will continue searching until it has found a bigger bin..

    Hi,

    The field capacity check is provided in the storage type to check the capacity at the time of putaway whether the putaway bin is capable to store the quantity defined.

    This is based on the which putaway strategy you are using for the storage type. Usually this check is activated for Addition to stock strategy.
