These storage types make up the warehousing complex
and can be located in one or several buildings. They are
all managed using a single warehouse number.
In the standard version of Warehouse Management,
several complete storage types are already configured
and you can use them right away. These include:
 A high rack storage area
 A bulk storage area
 A picking storage area
 A general storage area
 A pallet storage area
These have all been defined with various control
parameters for putaway, picking, and inventory.

You can use these standard storage types as a

basis for your own individual settings, or you can
create different storage types to meet the
requirements of your company.
Definition of Control Parameters in the Storage Type
You need to define important control indicators at the
storage type level that determine the material flow
(putaway and picking activities) and the way inventory is
handled in each storage type. These include the control
indicators for:
 Putaway
 Picking
 Blocking indicators and inventory procedures

Some control indicators for storage types are

mutually exclusive; legal or internal directives
may not allow some combinations of indicators.
In such cases, the system issues an error
message. We recommend that you check and
test any new combinations before they are
released in the production system.
Only when there are no further stocks available in
a storage type can you activate or deactivate
storage unit management.
