EWM Location exits or not

Dear Experts,

i have a huge Problem in my test System and i have no idea what is the reason for the Problem.
I want to create a supply chain unit for my plant 1961 as the start Location for the routes.

I push the button "create".

The System gaves me this message. I had create before a "SP1961" as shipping Point. I delete them before i try to create the entry above.

But if i try to Display the 1961 which Exits as the message shown.

But the Systems gaves the message the Location 1961 doesnt Exits... :-(

And at These Point i gave up.

And a additional question which start Location i Need for the routes?

In the outbound order there are the following Information about the Location

I hope somebody can give me help.

Regards

Kai

    Hello,

    You can check if the entry either still exist in tables /SCMB/TOENTITYMP (Supply Chain Unit: Mapping) or the table /SCMB/TOENTITY (Supply Chain Unit: Header Table) or can still be seen in the transaction /SCMB/SCUMAIN

    If yes, check the resolution in note 2041937.

    Regards,

    Natália

    Hello Kai,

    the second part I can not answer (I try to stay away from SCM routes as far as possible).

    But the first one I can.

    You have two things here: a location and a supply chain unit. When you create a location, at the same time a SCU is created.

    So in your case you create a location, in that moment the system would try to create a SCU - but this one does already exist.

    In case you want to keep the SCU you have, you can just assign the role PLOC, then a location is created automatically.

    But actually you should not create the locations manually at all, they should always be created from the ERP system through CIF (in my opinion).

    Hello Both, many thanks for your answers.

    @ Jürgen: I agree with you that all master data have to be transferred from ERP to EWM. As i start with my test System, i create a plant 1961 type 1008 / Warehouse.

    In all the discription about the route finding tell i have to create a Transport lane. But it was not posible with my plant!

    Then i start to try create the Transport lane. As i key in the start Location (my plant 1961) i received the following error message.

    I dont understand these error because i have a supply chain unit as Show two Picture above!

    That was the only reason due i create a new Location as a shipping Point type 1003, It was a try... because i have no idea why it doesnt works because the 1961 has the SFLO (Ship-From Location) function also. Then i create a new Location as shipping Point SP1961, but the outbound dont find them..

    Why the EWM doesnt find the Location 1961 to create the Transport lanes. I think this is the main question because without the Transport lanes i cant work with the routes!

    I am very desperate due i have to shown my System to my bosses... :-(

    Where is my error? Have anybody any description how for me or a short description?? Please.

    Hope for your Support.

    BR Kai

    • Hello Kai,

      you write that you created the SCU manually - but this is then not a location. Not even sure if it works when adding the business attribute PLOC for a SCU with the type 1008 - because this type does not exist for locations.

      When defining a route, the pop-up says to enter a start and end SCU - but that is wrong, it must be a location. And you do not need transport lanes, but don't ask me more...

    • Hi Kai,

      As I can see entry 1961 still exists in this table.

      Did you check note 2041937 - Supply Chain Unit with name &1 already exists?

      It recommends to schedule a deletion job of the Supply Chain Unit/Location in transaction /SCMB/SCUMAIN to delete the entry from /SCMB/TOENTITY.

    Hello Natalia,

    i wrote this yesterday. But i am not sure what happens, if i delete the entry for my warehouse 1961. I fear i kill my test System. The data were transferred from ERP to EWM. Therefore i dont do this. It seems to me that a SCU type 1008 is not a Location. But i cant understand. I very unsecure about this case. And only you and Jürgen try to Support me in this case.

    best regards

    Kai

    • And just to add: I don't know how useful this feature is at all. As written before, locations should be created by transfer through CIF from ERP. I tried to add this attribute once and it worked, created a location, but I can not recall what type the SCU had.

    Hello Jürgen.

    this means i cannot create the routefinding in EWM when the warehouse (SCU) has the type 1008 / Warehouse. If i understand this in the right way.
