    Hi,

    In some industry they will receive and ship materials based on pallets, to track the pallet inside the WM you can use SU management.

    You can also have different pallets and different storage bins for the pallets, you can use storage bin type and storage unit type to place the correct pallet in the correct location.

    Thanks,

    JK

    Purpose

    Storage unit (SU) management in Warehouse Management (WM) enables you to optimize warehouse capacity and control material flow by utilizing storage units within the warehouse.

    A storage unit is a logical grouping of one or several amounts of material such as a pallet or a container that can be managed within a warehouse as a unit that belongs together. Storage units can be either homogeneous (containing one material item only) or mixed (containing two or more material items).

    Hi,tuffy :

    Please refer to the below information from SAP:

    Storage unit (SU) management in Warehouse Management (WM) enables you to optimize warehouse capacity and control material flow by utilizing storage units within the warehouse.

    A storage unit is a logical grouping of one or several amounts of material such as a pallet or a container that can be managed within a warehouse as a unit that belongs together. Storage units can be either homogeneous (containing one material item only) or mixed (containing two or more material items).

    All storage units, whether the materials are stored on standard pallets, wire baskets or other containers, are assigned an identifier u2014 a number u2014 which is maintained in the system as the storage unit number. Therefore, it is possible at any given time to know where each storage unit is located in the warehouse complex, the amount of material contained in it, and which operations have been processed or planned for it.

    When SU management is not active in a storage type, all stock is managed as separate quants at the storage bin level. With SU management, stock is managed at the pallet or storage unit level. A storage bin can have one or more storage units. Similarly, each storage unit can consist of one or more quants.
