Using this indicator it is possible to allocate different movement types in WM to a movement type in IM.IBM India Private Limited WM CookBook ECC 5. Every material used in bulk storage must be assigned a bulk storage indicator in the "Warehouse Management 1" view.

In this case. The system then uses this strategy as follows to locate the corresponding entries in the storage type search table: First. which you also configure here. as already mentioned. the SAP System has to know the storage types in which materials are to be put away or picked from. search sequence for Storage Type search is determined. you can also influence the storage type search by setting additional indicators.g. Following are the activities carried out in this step. you can define an access strategy.1 Activate Storage Type Search In this IMG Activity. Secondly. 16 .0 3 Strategies for Warehouse Operations While carrying out warehouse operations. The system takes this information from the "Allowed storage unit types / storage type" table. an entry with all of the relevant indicators from the material and (if present) hazardous material master. This information is provided by the "Storage Type Search" table.IBM India Private Limited WM CookBook ECC 5. If you have activated the storage unit check. If the system does not find an entry in the storage type search table.e. To reduce the number of entries in the storage type search table. the Warehouse Management (WM) system needs to know o The storage types in which materials can be put away(for Stock Placement) o The storage types from which materials can be picked(for Stock Removal) • Logic for Storage Type Search in WM o Firstly. i. various indicators affect the storage type search procedure. putaway or picking operation) o Storage type indicator from the material master o Stock category indicator o Special stock indicator o Storage class o Water pollution class (WPC) o The Warehouse Management system will only use the "storage class" and "water pollution class" indicators if you have activated the hazardous material management facility o Thirdly. the SAP System attempts to read a fully qualified entry. the storage unit type is from the transfer order is also checked against the permissible storage units for each storage type. o Operation indicator (e. it will also affect the storage type search. it attempts to read the table again – this time using the access strategy 3.

It controls whether certain storage types are given priority when materials are placed in or removed from stock.

make sure that the destination storage type of the pick step is used as the source storage type for distributing the accumulated quantities.0 If you want the system to search through the entire warehouse number for a stock pick. define activity type "2" (Column " Activity"). enter "***" (stands for stringent FIFO) as the storage type. Activity types ‘A’ and ‘E’ are used for picking and putaway respectively IMG Path Transaction Code Table / View IMG Logistics Execution Activate Storage Type Search SPRO/SM30 T334 / V_T334 Warehouse Management Strategies Determine Search Sequence Entries specified in this table are: 18 .

Next.4 Access Optimization using Storage Type Search To reduce the number of entries. the system goes to the access strategy table and looks in the first line which has no type indicators to look for stock category 'R' and special stock " " (blank).1. Since the system initially has no success in reading the table. if we place a material into storage with type indicator "A" and stock category "R" (returned stock). the system determines the required entries in the storage type search table as follows: o The system first tries to find a suitable match. With the help of this access strategy.IBM India Private Limited WM CookBook ECC 5. an access strategy can be defined for the storage type search table. o For example. but this time using the access strategy. an entry in the storage type search table with all the relevant indicators from the material master and. that is.

• Storage Location not in TR: This indicator is used to control whether the storage location from the reference document (for example, material document or production order) is copied into the transfer requirement. If the indicator is selected, the field Storage location in the transfer requirement remains empty. When the system creates a transfer order for this kind of transfer requirement, it uses the standard storage location defined for this plant in this warehouse number. • Standard Storage Location: If a transfer requirement is created on the basis of a posting in Inventory Management (IM) or on the basis of a production order, and if the respective storage location is customized so that the storage location is not copied into the transfer requirement, the field for the storage location in the transfer requirement remains set to the initial value.

When this transfer requirement is converted into a transfer order, this standard storage location is then used. o If you create transfer orders manually and do not specify a storage location, the system proposes the standard storage location. • Storage Location Reference: o Depending on the storage location, this indicator influences the storage type search within the transfer order as well as the interim storage type search in the IM posting. o

• Storage Location Control in WM o Using the storage location control function, you can define whether posting changes are to be accumulated or which user is to be informed by Mail if an error occurs. This setting is same as Configuration for Automatic TO Creation. • Storage location reference o You can assign a two-digit, freely selectable storage type reference to the combination PLANT / STORAGE LOCATION. This storage location reference is used in two places in the Warehouse Management system: o The storage location reference is used by the system to determine the WM movement type for an IM posting. It is thus possible to determine different movement types within the WM system for the various storage locations and thus to execute postings to different interim storage types. o Also, the storage type reference is used for the storage type search. In this way, it is possible both during stock placement as well as during stock removals to select different storage types dependent on the storage location.

6.1.2 Define Movement Types In this IMG Activity, IM-WM integration is defined at Movement type level (the first level of this integration is WM-Plant/Sloc combination). • WM Movement Type o Like Inventory Management Movement Types, WM has also some movement types which controls process flow in the warehouse. In fact, WM movement type decides which Interim storage area need to be used for a particular material movement. o At the same time WM Movement type has various other control functions like Manual /Automatic TO, Print code, GR Data to be updated in quant or not, information regarding TO confirmation, Return storage type search for material returns and control indicators for Storage type search. • Reference Movement Type determines o WM Movement Type o Stock Category for the Quant to be generated in WM
