The warehouse number encompasses the organizational and physical aspects of a warehousing complex as a single concept.

For example, a unit of weight is defined at the level of the warehouse number. Furthermore, at this level, the system determines the standard unit of measure for WM documents, and special interfaces, such as external interfaces or interfaces between Warehouse Management (WM) and Production Planning and Control (PP), are defined here as well. You can change these settings subsequently.

We recommend using one warehouse number for each group of storage areas or buildings (warehousing complex) in the same geographical area. If your warehousing facilities are located in different cities or are physically separated by az longer distance, it is appropriate to assign a separate warehouse number to each warehouse complex.

For information on how to define a warehouse number, call up the Implementation Guide (IMG) for Warehouse Management and see under Master Data Define Control Parameters for Warehouse Number.

Example

As an example, the warehouse for company XYZ consists of a(n)

Goods receipt area

Goods issue area

Hall with high rack shelves

Bulk storage area

Picking area with fixed bins

Outside storage yard for special goods (This is also used when other areas are already filled to capacity.)

Each of the areas listed above is referred to in WM as a storage type. WM groups these buildings or areas under a warehouse number.
