Storage of Pre-Picked Handling Units - SAP WM

Purpose
You can use this process to put away, pick and transfer non-inventory-managed handling units (HUs) within Warehouse Management (WM). Non-inventory-managed HUs are materials that have already been picked and packed.

For instance, you specify that some of the items of a delivery are to be packed in one packaging material (box). The packaging material and the materials it contains form a handling unit that is assigned to a delivery and can be moved within the warehouse. The content of the handling unit is not significant for Warehouse Management. In fact, the contents can only be determined by referring to the delivery.

Prerequisites
Assign the special stock indicator Y to the movement types for putaway (91) and picking (92) in the Implementation Guide (IMG) for Warehouse Management. To assign special movement indicators to movement types, select Interfaces Inventory Management → Define Movement Types → LE-WM Interface Inventory Management. Note that the delivery for which the handling units were already put away must not be posted goods issue.

Process flow

  1. Specify whether you want to put away, pick or transfer handling units.
  2. In all three cases, define the selection criteria for the handling units to be stored. The following selection criteria are available:
    • Warehouse number (picks and transfers only)
    • Storage type (picks and transfers only) optional
    • Goods issue date
    • Customer (optional)
    • Delivery (optional)
    • Handling unit (optional)
  3. In all three cases, you define standard values for the stock movement. The following standard values are possible:
    • Plant (putaway only)
    • Warehouse number (putaway only)
    • Storage location (putaway only optional if you have set a standard storage location in the IMG)
    • Storage unit type (putaway only) optional
    • Storage type (picks and transfers only) optional
  4. If the stock movement is either a putaway or a pick, decide whether it is to be processed in the foreground or the background.
  5. Background processing:
    • Putaway
      The system lists the handling units to be placed into stock (if errors occur, an error log is created) and also generates the putaway transfer orders.
    • Picking
      The system lists the handling units to be picked (if errors occur, an error log is created) and also generates the picking transfer orders.
  6. Foreground processing:
    1. Putaway
      • The system lists the handling units that were selected and generates an error log if errors occur.
      • You select the handling units to be put away and specify the destination storage bin manually, if necessary.
      • You create the putaway transfer order.
    2. Picking
      • The system lists the handling units that were selected and generates an error log if errors occur.
      • You select the handling units that are to be picked.
      • You then create the pick transfer order.
    3. Stock transfer
      • The system lists the handling units that were selected and generates an error log if errors occur.
      • You select the handling units to be transferred and specify the destination storage bin manually, if necessary.
      • You then create the transfer order for stock transfer.
  7. In all three cases, you confirm the transfer order that has been generated.
    • Putaway
      The system posts the handling unit to the destination storage bin, effectively completing the putaway process.
    • Picking
      The system removes the handling unit from its storage bin, effectively completing the picking process.
    • Stock transfer The system removes the handling unit from its storage bin and posts it to the destination storage bin, effectively completing the transfer. You can cancel transfer orders that have not yet been confirmed by using the canceling transfer orders function.
