Storage section and picking area in WM

Hi guys,

In WArehouse Management, what is the difference between a storage section and a picking area ?

We have the following requirement

We keep our finished products in one room. In this room our client keeps some qty of stocks at one place and some qty in another place. Like this there are about 50 places in the room. We are planning to configure as follows

1) Define the room as a closed storage type

2) Define each place as a storage section (here we have a doubt whether we can have only one storage section for entire room and define each palce as a picking area)

3) Define only one bin for each place

Our requirement is that we have to activate picking strategy also and it should pick the batches on FIFO basis

Is it OK. Any suggestions will be rewarded suitably

thanks in advance

    Hi

    A picking area is not required for your situation. A storage section is not the answer

    I would suggest one st type - one st section and then create one storage bin with 50 ;bin sections' you can have up to 99 of these for each bin.

    As you put the stock away the system will automatically assign the stock to the st bin and it will devide it up as follow

    BIN xxxxxxxxxx/1 BIN xxxxxxxxxx/2 BIN xxxxxxxxxx/3 and so on uintil 50

    I hope that this helps
