1- VAS for repacking. On inbound process for spare parts we will need to send spare parts for repacking. We want to use VAS process in order to maintain repacking instruction. But sometimes parts are directly putaway to stock because these parts will be used as components for kitting. We will manage these parts in a separate storage location. In other wors, a part A will be received sometime in storage location 0001 and will be sent to 3pp for repacking sometime same part A will be received on Storage location 0002 and will be directly put away to stock. What would be your recommendation to handle this issue ? What could be the determination criteria to send goods to either VAS work center or fianl putaway location ?

    Hi Sudarshan,

    If you have different storage locations, you also have different stock types. Let's say:

    • Storage location 0001: stock type 1F (free), 1Q (quality), 1B (blocked), 1R (returns).
    • Storage location 0002: stock type 2F (free), 2Q (quality), 2B (blocked), 2R (returns).

    You can influence your putaway strategy by the stock type. You can even create stock type groups (1G for all 1* stock types, 2G for all 2*, for example). Check SPRO, "Specify Storage Type Search Sequence for Putaway" and "Optimize Access Strategy for Storage Type Search: Putaway"

    It may also be interesting to check also the stock type for VAS utilities in SPRO, "Warehouse Number-Dependent VAS Settings".

    the storage location (or rather, as Julio describes it, the stock type) is no standard determination field for the VAS relevance.

    You can either try to use the BAdI "Create VAS Order from Warehouse Request Automatically" and see that you use the stock type in there. Or you setup the VAS relevance that a VAS order is NOT automatically created and you do it manually for the deliveries where you need it for.
