Putaway - Sort bins by pathseq

Hi experts,

have created a path sequence for my bins (SCWM/LAGPS).

No I want to do the putaway based on this sequence numbering. Is this possible in standard or do I have to use a badi or somehting else?

Thanks

Michael

Hi Michael,

Did you get the solution for this. Even we are trying to implement the same.

Hi Michael,

what do you mean with "putaway" exactly?

The sequence you process the warehouse tasks? Then you need a sort profile in your warehouse order using the sort field "PATHSEQ".

Or the sequence how the system finds bins then searching for an empty bin? Then you need the activity CLSP.

Hi Jürgen,

sorry, yes, mean the sequence how system finds the empty bin, not the sorting of the tasks.

So I need to use CLSP, will give it a try.

Thanks for the hint (already thought about that, but was not sure)

Regards

Michael

For CLSP there is two or three special things to consider:

- you do not create the activity area by yourself, but you have to use the function in customizing "create activity area for cross-line stock putaway.

- While for all other activities the activity comes from the warehouse process type, CLSP is independent. If the activity area for this activity exists, it is used. If not, then the sorting is simply by the bin names. But in the warehouse tasks you will have another activity, the one from the WPT.

Hi Jürgen,

should have read your post a little bit earlier, was searching for hours now how to create process type for CLSP ;-)

Okay, fine then, but I cant find the "create activity area for cross-line stock putaway" in customizing (EWM 9.1)

Do you have a hint for me?

Thanks

Michael

Hi,

sorry, it is "Generate Activity Area from Storage Type" (wrote the other thing out of my head. But it is a generic function, it can be used for all activities). In there you select the activity CLSP.

Hi Jürgen,

perfect, sequence is created, thanks a lot for your help!

But I think - will not work the way DC wants to have :-(

What the have:

2 storage types (hall1 and hall 2), 2 sections (Fast Mover and Slow Mover), different storage bin types (A130, B130, C130 - pallet height max 130, max pallets 15/17/19, A210, B210, C210, ...)

All these bins now have a sequence number (in hall 1 we have 5 "sections" (A-E, we need to start at C, then E, then B, then A, then D, hall 2 has 4 sections (F-I, first G, then I, then F then H). bin numbering is from 1-67, sometimes sorting should be descending (C, E, G, I), rest ascending. The sequence number is in that order.

On warehouse level, we can set sorting of bins by storage type, storage bin type and storage section.

Okay, let's say we sort by bin type, storage type then storage section and we want to putaway a INDU 120 pallet.

My locations then will be sorted like that:

A130, hall 1, FM

A130, hall 1, SM

A210, hall 1, FM

A210, hall 1, SM

B130, hall 1, FM

...

Now in A130, hall 1, FM no empty bin is available, so next will will A130, hall 1, SM --> empty bin found, bring pallet to that location.

--> not nice, as a B130, FM, hall 1 would be better.

Okay, change order of sorting, first section, then storage type, then bin type. So:

A130, hall 1, FM

B130, hall 1, FM

C130, hall 1, FM

A210, hall 1, SM

B210, hall 1, SM

...

In A130, hall 1, FM nothing is empty, so check for B130, hall 1, FM --> empty bin found, bring pallet to that location

--> could be fine

But - the sequence we have created (based on aisle, stack, ...) is completly different, says first C130, FM, hall 1, ...

We can use interface/Badi /SCWM/IF_EX_CORE_RMS_STRATEGY to adjust sorting of bins. But when calling this, I only have the bins in the actual pass (A130, hall 1, FM) and can sort these bins by my sequence number.

Is there a way of getting all bins and sort them as needed (maybe working with mask * (like *130)?

Thanks

Michael

Hi,

"On warehouse level, we can set sorting of bins by storage type, storage bin type and storage section."

That is not what you asked about previously. Sorting is inside a storage type only (and if you set it up this way, in a small part of a storage type only). For that you can use the aisle, stack, level, subdivision and depth. And it only defines the sort sequence inside that activity area. Storage types / bin type / storage section would be the putaway search sequence.

"Okay, change order of sorting, first section, then storage type, then bin type. So:"

I guess that means you changed the determination priorities. I would recommend to look into using points instead, as this is more flexible.

But I really think you mix up two things here.

Yes, we mix up here, 100%.

I thought with the sequence number I get exactly what I want, but this is then only used inside activity area and inside determination prio (was not familiar with that).

What I need is somehow for a INDU 120 pallet get all 130 locations in Fast Mover section, sorted by sequence number, ...

Will check how to achieve this, thanks a lot for your time!

Hi Michael,

Have you cheked ? Tcode ->/SCWM/SRTUP ( you can modify Sort Sequence ) Please check the file structure below

TCode->se11->/SCWM/S_LAGPS_LSMW( File Structure ) and change the SRT_NR and check in the table /SCWM/LAGPS.

Please test and let us know if it fulfill your requirement.

Many Thanks, Ajit

Hi Ajit,

I know this, will result in the same sort sequence numbering that system will create now based on my bins (aisle, level, ...).

But how to use this sort sequence then?

Regards

Michael

Hi Michael,

Hope you might aware of Search rule for empty bins in Putaway Control of Storage type. ( Its field in Storage type that means how to prioritize the empty bins ). Please read help for more info

But how to use this sort sequence then?

Please try to prepare a excel sheet with TCode->se11->/SCWM/S_LAGPS_LSMW( File Structure ) and change the sequence SRT_NR( Please give as per your need to fill the empty bin ) and upload with the above TCODE and check the the table /SCWM/LAGPS ( Empty bin will determine by the sort sequence ).Please try to test and let us know if it does not meet your requirement.

Cheers,Ajit

Hi Ajit,

I already have the sorting:

Now I want to putaway a pallet:

Nice, access table is sorted like my bin determination prio.

And inside one line (e.g. 1103, B, A130) the sort sequence is used.
