storage types

Hi All

The user requirement is


If the material is received through AIR(aeroplane) it has to follow one storage type search strategy and if the procuremnt is through road transportation it has to follow another strategy.

For eg: Through Air-storage types -ch1,ch2,ch3

Through road-ch3,ch2,ch1

How to configure this in the storage type search table cfor the same material.

    when you receive materials with MIGO, you do not enter anything in MIGO to let SAP know whether it was received from plane or truck. This info is probably only in your purchase order.

    Even further, this MIGO receipt creates inventory in storage type 902 along with a transport request. And when you convert this TR into a TO, then the putaway strategy comes into the game.

    Means you are 2 steps beyond the the element that has the information that the material should come by plane or truck.

    The quant in 902 storage type does not know anything about how it came, nor the transport request.

    In customizing of putaway strategy you can see the fields that can be used to differentiate the storage type search

    as well as in this docu:

    So, the only option you have is probably a user exit, where you read the PO again to get knowledge about the shipping mode, and to decide then which strategy you want use.

    This is not possible through movement type reference.

    Could you please help to know if you have business in such a way that some material would always be through air or road. If this is the case then you can define special movement indicator in WM1 view. Then the corresponding customizing.

    If the above is not true then check if it is possible as said earlier by Jurgen to have modification through exit at the time of MIGO to determine the new IM movement type for air or road. Corresponding to this new IM movement type, new WM movement type respective for air or road would be found through reference movement and then the putaway search strategy. Also for new WM movement type you have to maintain reference storage type search which is one of the parameter for storage type search.

    Thanks and regards
