SAP WM Stock Removal Strategy A (Partial Pallet Quantity)

In SAP WM module, the stock removal strategy A(partial pallet quantity) is also commonly used. There are partial pallets and full pallets of materials placed in the warehouse. If a small amount of materials need to be removed from the shelf, SAP system can suggest that they should be removed from the partial pallet shelf automatically, which is naturally a good and convenient stock removal strategy for warehouse management.

This blog is used to demonstrate the control effect of stock removal strategy A.

1, The Storage type Z05, its stock removal strategy is A.

2, Storage type search configuration.

3, The material 800 is used for this demo. See the WM views setting.

In material master data, the stock placement indicator and stock removal indicator are both Z05. It means that when we conduct put away for that material, the destination storage type will be Z05; when we remove stock from shelf, the source storage type will be Z05 too.

In palletization data, we set that a full IP type pallet can store 500 EA of this material.

4, The purchase order 4500000851 of material 800, is used for the demo of this blog.

5, Execute the transaction code MIGO to do goods receipt against this purchase order, and complete the put away transaction of SAP WM level, then we have the inventory of this material.

We received 1233 EA of material 800, it means that we will have 2 full pallet and 1 partial pallet.
