Relationship between Plant and Storage Locations

As per SAP theory, a plant can have more than one storage locations, but can a storage location be shared by more than one plant ? I had this doubt because what happens when a common storage location is physically identified between two plants which could be used to store materials generated by those two plants. Say Storage location SL is situated in between two nearby plant locations PL1 and PL2.

    Hi,

    Go to OX09 and assign the storage location to both the plants first.

    Then go to OVL3 and assign the shipping point, plant and shipping condition to storage location.

    Then you wont get any error.

    You can assign one storage location to different plants.

    Hi there,

    Yes you can assign 1 storage locations to multiple plants. You will do that in OVL3 where you wil assign shipping point / plant to a storage loc.

    Dear friend

    Nowhere in SAP Storage Location has an individual identity or an individual role

    Storage locations is for plant or inside a particular plant

    That means in any transaction when you input an storage location there needs to be a plant there

    So physically SL is a common Storage Location shared by two plants say PL1 and PL2.

    But For SAP there are two storage locations and they are

    Under PL1 Storage Location SL

    Under PL2 Storage Location SL

    System understands this Storage Location SL as two different identities eventhough physically and practically they are same assiged to 2 plants as a single identity

    Hope you are getting the difference

    Regards
