Stock bin to bin movement in the warehouse

Dear Experts

I am defining few storage types (for ex: A,B,C,D) in my warehouse.I am receiving material 'X' into the warehouse.

The business scenario is to move the material X from A to B and then B to C and then C to D provided that Storage type A and B have single storage bins.Its not a special stock, not in special stock category. The material is not supposed to be directed from A to C Or A to D.

All the movements are verymuch internal bin to bin movements.But we need a system guided movements.

How would I do this? Any special configuration Or development needed for this scenario.

Thanks

    If you explain with a little more detail why there is such need, we can come with a better idea. The simplest way to do it is to define new movement types for the corresponding movements

    Letu2019s say define MvT 011 (example) and in the movement type (table V_T333) you can set source storage type u201CAu201D and destination storage type u201CBu201D. In such way with such movement type you will be allowed to move materials only from A to B.

    Then you can define second MvT 012 where you can set source storage type u201CBu201D and destination storage type u201CCu201D. In such way with such movement type you will be allowed to move materials only from B to C.

    And last you can define third MvT 013 where you can set source storage type u201CCu201D and destination storage type u201CDu201D. In such way with such movement type you will be allowed to move materials only from C to D.

    You can put also the bin in the movement type if it is just one.

    The not so good part in such scenario is that when the users need to move materials, they have to select the correct movement type.

    To disable transfer from A to C or D I do not believe that is possible, if you use standard movement type 999, the system will not restrict you to make such movement.

    Others ideas are welcomed, this is just what I taught 😊

      Hi Petar,

      Does this mean that we enter the movement type manually everytime we do each movement?

      I want a process which is system guided am also looking for an option here.

      If we define reference storage type search in table V_t333_c, then we can assign these reff.stty search in V_T334T table.

      Does this going to help me to get the system guided process.

      The other alternative is customization - to define a parameter table.Assign the table to an RF transaction for Bin to Bin move.Please leave your suggestions.

      Thanks for your time

    Your welcome, it is an interesting issue.

    Yes, this is the not so good part u2013 you need to specify the movement type manually.

    For reference type search, it is definitely an option; I am just not sure how easy it will be for you to design it, because you have 4 movements u2013 one to u201CAu201D, second to u201CBu201D, third to u201CCu201D and fourth to u201CDu201D. If you use the same movement type for all movements, I am not so sure that it will be possible to customized it in the storage type search.

    What I mean

    Letu2019s say we have the following example.

    Movement to A is goods receipt in the warehouse

    Movement to B is internal movement

    Material with storage type indicator ZZZ

    Table V_t333_c

    For movement type 101 we assign reference 0

    For movement type 999 we assign reference 1

    In table V_T334T we do the following

    For put away, indicator ZZZ reference 0 u2013 go to u201CAu201D

    For put away, indicator ZZZ reference 1 u2013 go to u201CBu201D

    But then, the movement to C and D assuming that they are also internal movements I do not see how to map.

    Best regards, Peter

      Petar,

      Thanks for your immediate response.

      You are right ..this way it does not work.

      I could see the only option is to define parameter table with the fields like

      Whare are you

      (Source storage type field) : picking from : Destination St type: movement type

      A : - : B : 999

      B : - : C : 999

      C : - : D : 999

      I might need to define few more fields in this parameter table

      When we run a custom transaction for Bin to Bin move, It initially reads this table

      When the user scan the first location(sourc st type), It would read the first record of the parameter table and

      moves the stock desitnation storag type.In the same way for B to C and C to D.

      I hope this works.Please leave your comments.

    Well, i can not think of any standard way to achive this. So the idea with the parameter table looks like a good idea for me and it should work.
