Storage Location Control in SAP WM Module

We have such a scenario: there are two storage locations 0001 and 0002 under the plant code NMDC, of which 0002 is used as the temporary receiving storage location to complete the goods receipt of the purchase order. After the warehouse personnel place to material inventory on the shelf, the storage location of the goods will be automatically changed to 0001.

This scenario can to be realized through the storage location control functionality in the SAP WM module. This blog is to demonstrate how to realize this business scenario.

1, Storage location Control related configuration.

The storage location 0002 is set as the storage location for temporary receipt. After the put away done, the inventory can be transferred from 0002 storage location to 0001 storage location through 311 movement type automatically.

The destination storage location 0001 after put away was set as standard storage location.

2, Below material is used for this demo.

We have below purchase order for this material.

3, Execute the transaction code MIGO to post goods receipt for this purchase order and then complete the system operation of WM level.

The storage location in MIGO screen is 0002.

The quantity is 123 EA,the batch number is 0000000508.

Post,SAP switch to the transaction code LT06 screen,

Let stop here and check the inventory for this batch material,

The inventory of this batch are received into storage location 0002.

Now we continue to execute LT06 to do put away for this batch material inventory.

Note: Please pay attention to the storage location in above screen, it is empty. Because the storage location in related TR document is EMTPY.

Save it directly,

We complete the confirmation for this TO document using LT12.

Now we can check the inventory of this batch material again,

The inventory of this batch materials are placed in the storage location 0001.

However, this function is rarely used in SAP project practice. In the SAP projects in which I participated, all those who enabled SAP WM did not use this function.

Note: This blog is based on SAP S4 / HANA 1909 system.
