Define Storage Type A warehouse number is ivi e up into a number of storage types. A storage type is efine on the basis of its spatial or organizational features (for e2ample, high rack storage area, bulk storage area, an goo s receipt area). A storage type has the following features" A storage type oes not have an a ress, but a short escription.

It is possible to store storage6type6specific material ata. Within a storage type, inventory is e2ecute for each storage bin.

Strategies In the Warehouse Management system (=86WM) you support strategies in or er to receive proposals from the SA- System 7egar ing which storage bins the goo s are to be put away 5rom which storage bins goo s are to be pic(e .

!here are two basic strategies in the system" putaway strategies picking strategies

With the help of these strategies, the SA- system can use the available transfer an warehouse capacity optimally.

5or each storage type, you must efine a putaway an a pic(ing strategy. ecommen!ation !o be able to ta(e a closer loo( at the processes involve in the storage bin search (that is, processes that involve interaction between the materials master ata an the ata from the system configuration menu in Warehouse Management), you can use the function A=og @in SearchA.

In the WMS, a storage type is etermine as follows" #. In the case of a put away, you generally (now where the material for the put away is coming from. In the case of a pic(, you generally (now to where the material to be remove is to be transferre . Information on the location from where the material is to be pic(e is either store in the transfer re+uirement or etermine by the system using the WM mo%ement type. %. !he system must then (now into which storage type the material shoul be place , or from which storage type the material shoul be remove . !he table AStorage type searchA, which you are setting here, provi es this information. In this table, you store the preferre se+uence of storage types to be searche for the material for putaways or pic(s. If you have activate the storage unit check, this chec( also influences the storage type search. In this case, the storage unit type from the transfer or er is also chec(e against the allowe storage units per storage type. !he system fin s this information via the table AAllowe storage unit types $ storage typeA, which you are also setting here. 5or further information on this sub*ect, refer to the chapter Storage type search. &. 5urthermore, you can influence the storage type search using other in icators" process in icator (for e2ample, stoc( placement or removal) storage type in icator from the material master stoc( category in icator special stoc( in icator storage class water pollution class (W-')

!he in icators storage class an water pollution class influence the storage type search. If you are not implementing >azar ous Material Management, you o not nee to pay attention to these parameters. 5or information on how to activate >azar ous Material Management, refer to the chapter /a0ar!ous materialsA. 3. As mentione above, ifferent in icators influence the storage type search. If, however, you are using storage type in icators an you also have materials with ifferent stoc( categories or materials with ifferent special stoc(s, the number of re+uire entries in the storage type search table can become +uite large. !o re uce the number of entries, you can efine an access strategy for the storage type search table. With the help of this access strategy, the system etermines the re+uire entries in the storage type search table as follows" !he system first tries to fin a suitable match, that is, an entry in the storage type search table with all the relevant in icators from the material master an , if available, from the hazar ous material master. If the system oes not fin a suitable entry in the storage type search table, it again tries to rea this table, but this time using the access strategy.

!he following te2t e2plains how you can assign a print co e to each movement type in the Warehouse Management system. A transfer or er is always assigne to a movement type. In this way, the print co e etermines the general print parameters for the transfer or er. Assignment of -rint 'o e $ Movement !ype Bou can efine ifferent printers an spool co es for various goo s movements (source storage type 6 estination storage type). Also, you can suppress the printing of transfer or ers, if re+uire . !here are also parameters (print co e, form) that you can efine both in the configuration A-rinter6MovementA as well as in the print co e settings. )uring the automatic etermination of the print parameters, the system procee s as follows" If an item of a transfer or er is to be printe automatically, the system etermines the general print parameters through the print co e assigne to the movement type. Afterwar s, it chec(s the movement6specific print parameters. If one of these parameters (for e2ample, for the form) is also efine in the print co e, the system will use the movement6specific parameter. It is possible to overri e the efinitions for label printing in the print co e, epen ing on the warehouse movement. Bou can also store an a itional form for a combine pic(ing list with the spool co e an the printer in or er to print a combine ocument in parallel to single printing for each !9 item. !his is only possible as an accompaniment to non6combine 6printouts (in icator for combine printing in the print co e) an is otherwise ignore .
