Full Pallet Pick in SU Managed Warehouse

We are using Storage Unit Managed Warehouse. My requirement is to pull full pallet from the warehouse irrespective of the quantity in the reference document. And return the pallet to the same after the required quantity is picked.

The scenario is when the Production Order is released the production replenishment Transfer requirements are created. Say a for one of the BOM component we have to be staged 6 cases of 10 cases of full pallet. The warehouse user will pick full pallet out and move to a temporary place unpack the pallet take 6 cases out and return the 4 cases on the pallet to the same bin.

I have activated the Full stock removal active and return to the same storage bin in Storage type control data. But i see that the return data is not filled in the transfer order. My expectation is, the remaining quantity to be returned to the source bin should be displayed in the third line u2018Backspu2019 in the TO.

Please suggest how do we configure a full pallet pick in case of Storage Unit Management Warehouse

    • From SAP onlije help it seems you have three methods, in third method (pick point, the movement of SU should be mapped):

      - "No Complete Stock Pick"

      You also allow partial quantities of the SU stock to be removed from this storage type

      The SU remains in the same bin throughout the entire stock removal process. As soon as you save the transfer order for the *partial pick, the system locks the partial quantity to be picked for the SU. However the remaining stock from the SU is still available for further picking with other transfer orders.

      If you follow this procedure, you can process several transfer orders simultaneously, removing the material from an individual storage unit simultaneously.

      - "Complete Removal Requirement with Return to Same Bin"


      For the WMS, the SU remains in its storage bin for this kind of partial stock pick. The system does not map the temporary state, when the storage unit temporarily leaves the storage bin and then returns to the same storage bin.

      As soon as you save a transfer order for removing a certain material quantity from the SU, the WMS locks this SU completely for stock removal based on other transfer orders or transfer order items.

      - "Complete Stock Pick Using a Pick Point"

      As far as the system is concerned, before you confirm the third and final item in the stock removal TO, this storage unit is still in the original storage bin, although physically it has already been removed from the source storage bin and brought to the pick point.


      Once you have confirmed the last TO item for picking, the system posts the SU with the remaining quantity of 50 pieces to the pick point. The SU is therefore at the pick point, both physically and according to the system.

      So, after the confirmation of the picking TO the SU will posted to the storage type of the pick point. After that you have to move it "manually" back to the the storage type / bin or another storage type bin.

      So, it seems there's no standard solution which would cover your requirement fully. So, you should decide whether to accept standard solution or make some enhancement.
