SAP WM: Cycle count + continuous inventory


In SAP WM, we have several PI-methods available:

In cycle counting inventory, you enter your material stocks physically at regular intervals within a fiscal year.

In continuous inventory, you distribute the physical inventory for all storage bins over the course of the fiscal year, and can carry out inventories at different times as you require.

Is it possible to combine both methods? So, for example:

Via cycle counting, I made settings so that my A-materials are counted once per mnth. However, I want to make sure that the count can be distributed evenly through the month to be able to better plan the workload.

Any suggestions?

Thanks & regards,

    Hello Oliver,

    Yes Oliver, you can perform normal inventory any time during the year as per your wish. You can use LI01N method (manual selection of bin for PI) and perform the PI for required bin. When you use LI01N- the last inventory date will get updated on the day on which you perform the PI.
