Storage Unit Management: Objectives At the conclusion of this topic, you will be able to: Define storage units and explain how to include them in the warehouse structure Create a storage type that uses SUM with placement strategy ‘P’ Process material movements in the warehouse using storage units  SAP AG 2002© SAP AG SCM631 2-3
  • 14. Storage Unit Management: Business Scenario In your warehouse, you move pallets that carry different materials. To reduce the complexity of these movements and in order to identify pallets in the Warehouse Management System, you assign a number to the storage unit with storage unit management.  SAP AG 2002© SAP AG SCM631 2-4
  • 15. Storage Bin with Storage Unit Management 4769 IIII 4712 IIII 01-04-09 01-04-09  SAP AG 2002 A storage unit is a logical grouping of one or more amounts of material, such as pallet or container, which can be managed in a warehouse as a unit that belongs together. This picture indicates a typical storage bin with storage unit management: There are 3 quants in the bin. There are 2 storage units in the bin. Storage units can be homogeneous (containing one material) or mixed (containing two or more items). All storage units are assigned an identifying number, which is maintained in the system as the storage unit number. You can see at any given time where each storage unit is located within the warehouse complex.© SAP AG SCM631 2-5
  • 16. WM System without Storage Unit Management Storage bin Quant Quant Quant  SAP AG 2002 Warehouse Management (WM) without Storage Unit Management (SUM) In the WM system without Storage Unit Management, material quantities (referred to in the WM system as quants) are managed at the level of the storage bin.© SAP AG SCM631 2-6
  • 17. Management at the Storage Unit Level Storage bin Storage unit Storage unit Quant Quant Quant  SAP AG 2002 If you have implemented Storage Unit Management, the quantities (quants) are managed at the level of the storage unit. In a single storage bin, you can store one or more storage units, which, in turn, can contain one or more quants.© SAP AG SCM631 2-7
  • 18. WM-System Hierarchy with SU Management Warehouse (complex) number Storage type Storage type Storage bin Storage bin Quant Quant Storage unit Storage unit Quant Quant  SAP AG 2002 When SU management is not active in a storage type, stock is managed as separate quants at the storage bin level. With SU management, stock is managed at the pallet or storage unit level. One or more storage units can be located within a single storage bin, and each storage unit can consist of one or more quants. In customizing, Storage Unit Management must first be allowed at the warehouse level. Then, you can choose for each storage type whether to allow SUM. If you define a storage type for Storage Unit Management, this means that all the bins in this storage type are managed for storage units. You may define SU management for physical storage types only. Interim storage types cannot be managed for storage units.© SAP AG SCM631 2-8
  • 19. SU Management in a Warehouse Complex GR area High rack storage ID point (with SU Mgmt Partial pallets Goods receipt (with SU Management) GI area Bulk storage (with SU Mgmt) Pick point Goods issue  SAP AG 2002 In an SU-managed storage type you can execute stock placements via an ID point and stock removals via a pick point. In Warehouse Management, the ID point is a physical location in the warehouse where incoming goods are identified for further processing. The pick point is the actual, physical location in the warehouse where items are picked for a partial stock removal from a storage unit. As an example, partial storage units might be returned to the same storage type but a different bin after picking. Such partial units might also be transferred to another storage type that is specifically designated for partial storage units.© SAP AG SCM631 2-9
  • 20. Introducing SU Mgmt in a Warehouse Complex GR area Shelf storage SU 2825 Mat. 1 Mat. 1 Transfer order 100 pcs 100 pcs Mat. 1 Mat. 1 Mat. 1 Mat. 2 Mat. 2 50 pcs 50 pcs 20 pcs 20 pcs SU 2826 Transfer order Mat. 1 Mat. 3 Mat. 3 Mat. 2 10 pcs 10 pcs Mat. 3  SAP AG 2002 Storage units are created in the system whenever materials are placed into storage in an SU-managed storage type. The stock placement is executed using the standard procedure for transfer order creation. If a homogeneous storage unit is placed into storage, this stock placement is covered by a single transfer order item. If a mixed storage unit is placed into storage, a single transfer order item is created for each individual material item in the storage unit.© SAP AG SCM631 2-10
  • 21. ID Point Goods Receipt area Shelf storage 1 1 2 2  SAP AG 2002 An ID point is a physical location in the warehouse where materials are identified for further processing. Purposes: 1. Verification of System Information to Actual Contents: Since storage units are identified by the storage unit number when placed into storage, the contents of each storage unit can be displayed. This makes it possible to do a rough comparison of the physical contents with the system information for a storage unit. 2. Contour Control: An automatic contour control can be carried out at the ID point to determine whether the storage unit is properly loaded. 3. Changing the Mode of Transport: Frequently, the mode of transport is changed at the ID point. Materials may be moved from a forklift to a conveyor system, for example. 4. To Determine the Final Destination: The destination bin in the final storage type is determined at the ID point. The destination bin is not assigned until the material arrives at the ID point. This ensures that the location of the bin is determined based on the most current information about available space in the storage type.© SAP AG SCM631 2-11
  • 22. Removing Storage Units via the Pick Point Shelf storage Goods issue area Pick point Pick point Rest  SAP AG 2002 Pick point: If stock is removed from a storage type where complete stock removal is defined, the storage unit with its entire quantity is first removed and transferred to a pick point within the warehouse. At this pick point, the required quantity is removed as required. The pick point might be a specific point along a conveyor where storage units have been transferred for order picking. The pick point might also be a marked floor area where entire pallets can be brought for picking materials.© SAP AG SCM631 2-12
  • 23. Stock Placement with Pre-planning Warehouse number 003 Goods receipt Goods receipt High rack storage High rack storage Production Production (SU Mgmt) (SU Mgmt) 1 ID point 2 2 Bulk storage Bulk storage (SU Mgmt) (SU Mgmt) 1 Pre-Planned TO 2 TO in physical warehouse  SAP AG 2002 Stock placement with pre-planning: If transfer orders are pre-planned, the storage units are first transferred from the goods receipt (GR) area to an ID point. As soon as the storage units physically arrive at the ID point, the transfer order items are confirmed, and a second transfer order is created to transfer the storage units to their final storage bin. To pre-plan, create the transfer order from the goods receipt area to the ID point in advance of the arrival of goods. The second transfer order moves material from the ID point to the final destination. The program RLVSPLRE can be run manually or in batch to delete the unused storage units after a specified number of days.© SAP AG SCM631 2-13
  • 24. Storage Unit Management: Topic Summary You are now able to: Define Storage Units and explain how to use them in the WM System Create a storage type that uses SUM with placement strategy ‘P’ Process material movements in the warehouse using storage units  SAP AG 2002© SAP AG SCM631 2-14
  • 25. Managing Bulk Materials: Objectives At the conclusion of this topic, you will be able to: Define a bulk storage area in the warehouse Process storage units into and out of bulk storage  SAP AG 1999© SAP AG SCM631 2-15
  • 26. Managing Bulk Materials: Business Scenario In one area of your warehouse, you manage mixed materials on pallets. These pallets can be stacked differently, depending on whether you are stacking large or small pallets. You have a business need to view how many of each material are stored on a given pallet. You want to manage each pallet of material as a storage unit.  SAP AG 2002© SAP AG SCM631 2-16
  • 27. Bulk Storage with SU Management Bulk storage SU SU 368 721 SU 369 SU SU 321 SU 921 864 Bin: B3-01 B3-02 B3-03 B3-04 SUT: I1 E1 E1 SU Mat.: A A B 462  SAP AG 2002 You may want to set up bulk storage with SU management, but you can also use bulk storage without SU management activated. You define the storage bins using blocks and rows. A row is managed as a storage bin. Bulk storage is often used to manage different types of storage units with different dimensions. For example, you might have standard pallets and industrial pallets. You can define the number of stacks and the stack height that can be accommodated for each pallet type. You can manage different storage unit types in bulk storage. The bulk storage indicator on the material master can be used to specify how a material is to be stored in bulk storage.© SAP AG SCM631 2-17
  • 28. SUM Bulk Storage with Partials and Mixed Storage SU SU 368 721 SU 369 SU SU 321 SU 921 864 SU 992  SAP AG 2002 With SU management, it is possible to manage partial pallets and mixed storage in bulk storage areas. One of the primary characteristics of tracking bulk storage under SU management is that the system does not keep a record of the exact location of a particular storage unit in a bin. Because of this, the system does not know which storage units are located in the front of a bin, making them accessible for picking. Since the system does not have a record of the actual structure of the storage units in a block, it cannot recommend specific storage units for order picking. During Transfer Order confirmation, the SU number must be specified.© SAP AG SCM631 2-18
  • 29. Stock Placement in Bulk Storage SU SU 368 721 SU 369 SU SU 321 SU 921 864 SU 992  SAP AG 2002 A storage bin can be blocked for further placement after the first stock removal. This block will automatically be removed when the bin is empty. You can have storage bins blocked for putaway by making a manual entry after a certain time (set in Customizing) has passed since the first stock placement. This block must be manually removed. You can set a blocking reason that is stored at the bin when you set the block with a time limit. As soon as the last stock removal takes place, this block is removed, as long as the blocking reason in the storage bin matches the blocking reason in Customizing.© SAP AG SCM631 2-19
  • 30. Managing Bulk Materials: Topic Summary You are now able to: Define a bulk storage area in the warehouse Process storage units into and out of bulk storage  SAP AG 1999© SAP AG SCM631 2-20
  • 31. Handling Unit Management At the conclusion of this unit, you will be able to: Explain the concept of a Handling Unit Describe how Handling Units and Storage Units fit together Describe the inbound and the outbound process with Handling Units  SAP AG 2002© SAP AG SCM631 2-21
  • 32. Definition: Handling Unit A Handling Unit is a physical collection of goods consisting of Packaging materials (e.g. pallet, carton, shrinkwrap, container) and Packed goods A Handling Unit has an unique identification number through which the related information can be read 123456  SAP AG 2002 Handling units (HUs) widen the pallet handling in warehouse and shipping logistics to all logistics components. Normally, a handling unit could be a pallet or a wire box, but the concept of handling unit is more generic and includes any type of grouped materials and their packaging material. In Warehouse Management, you can use handling units to process warehouse movements such as putaway, picking, or stock transfers. Handling units can be created in the warehouse, labeled, and also picked for existing deliveries.© SAP AG SCM631 2-22
  • 33. Handling Units in the Supply Chain Handling Units Describe what is packed how Have an identification number (licence plate eg. EAN128 or UCC128) Have a history Simplify the operation in the Supply Chain Are known by all logistic applications Enabling Goods movements without typing material numbers Customer specific packing Inventory control per  Handling Unit SAP AG 2002 Handling units simplify the processes in logistics. Any goods movement can be done for the handling unit. A handling unit is created only once. The content and the history information are kept in the handling unit and from there are available to the different logistics components.© SAP AG SCM631 2-23
  • 34.

This unique identification takes place through an identification number. For consistency, it is appropriate to assign a unique number to each handling unit. Within a client, the uniqueness of the number can be ensured through a number range object. Only with the assignment of a serialized shipping container (SSCC-18) can you guarantee that the identification number is unique throughout all the systems.© SAP AG SCM631 2-24
  • 35. Handling Units and Warehouse Management Handling Units Storage Units and Have the same Identification Number (SSCC) Can be nested Know all quant information Know serial numbers Aggregate all materials from nested Handling Units Know packaging materials Are generated automatically by the Handling Unit  SAP AG 2002 Handling units are known in Warehouse Management. A handling unit in the warehouse becomes a storage unit. The storage unit recognizes the sum of the materials and their related quantities. Handling units are part of the packing hierarchies (resulting from nesting) and their serial numbers relate to them. If the stock is changed, it follows that both the storage unit and the handling unit are changed as well.© SAP AG SCM631 2-25
  • 36. Creation of an Handling Unit Manually Taking the packaging material Naming the pallet according to SSCC18 Packing the materials Printing a label Automatically A quantity of material to be packed with packing instructions leads to a number of Handling Units with the same content + =  SAP AG 2002 Packing is an independent function within logistics. You can create handling units and assign material items at any point in the packing dialog by entering a packaging material. You can pack the handling units you created into other handling units, and so on, forming as many packing levels as you like (multi- level packing). Automatic packing allows you to use packing proposals to create handling units automatically in the background. The proposal includes both packaging material and the content for each handling unit.© SAP AG SCM631 2-26
  • 37. Business Processes Inbound Inbound business processes covered with Handling Unit Management Goods Receipt Process Handling Units in the inbound delivery/ASN Quality Management with Handling Units Putaway in the warehouse Production Replenishment Order dependent (Pick Parts) Order independent Special processes in Production Material Reconciliation  SAP AG 2002 Goods receipt and putaway are two basic warehouse processes, which take place when goods are delivered from a vendor or from production. The putaway process includes putting away goods in storage bins in the warehouse. You can use the putaway strategies in Warehouse Management to find a suitable bin easily. When a vendor notifies the goods recipient of the delivery of goods by using a shipping notification, this can also contain packaging information. The shipping notification generates an inbound delivery that includes the packing data from the shipping notification. Also, an inspection lot in Quality Management can be created for the handling units, and the stock is then posted into quality inspection stock upon goods receipt. For production supply, you can carry out material staging of production order components with handling units in conjunction with Warehouse Management. You can also use material reconciliation with handling units. Material reconciliation is used to analyze and verify ingredients at the end of the production process in process manufacturing. It allows comparison of the material quantity that actually flowed in with the planned quantity or the quantity of the material produced.© SAP AG SCM631 2-27
  • 38. Goods Receipt with Handling Units Inbound Delivery/ ASN Inbound containing Handling Shipment Unit numbers HU-Nr. 69179 123456 HU-Nr. 69180 123456 HU-Nr. 69181 Transfer- order Putaway Goods Receipt- posting HU-Nr. 69179 HU-Nr. 69180 HU-Nr. 69181 Putaway confirmation  SAP AG 2002 You can generate putaway transfer orders for inbound deliveries or for handling units. If there is more than one Handling Unit in an inbound delivery, the putaway TO is split up in single transfer orders for every single handling units. You can create transfer orders before or after GR postings in Inventory Management. If you carry out the putaway before the GR posting, the storage unit is at the destination bin of the transfer order. A negative quant with the storage unit number is generated in the source storage bin of the transfer order. During goods receipt posting for the inbound delivery, negative quants in the GR area are deleted and the system notes in the storage unit that partial picks are now possible.© SAP AG SCM631 2-28
  • 39. Business Processes Outbound Outbound business processes covered by Handling Unit Management: Finished Goods processes in production Packing in production Goods Receipt from production Picking and packing Pick Handling Units Handling Units in the Delivery Handling Units and RF Delivery Split with Handling Units Handling Units in the shipment Plant to plant movements  SAP AG 2002 Packing finished goods in production means you can group material produced from a production order in handling units. You pack the material and post goods receipt with reference to the handling unit or to the order. This means that material can be divided between several handling units. Since all inventory is principally managed with handling units, it is necessary, even for pick TOs, that the stock is repacked into handling units. Using the mobile data processing function, you can perform quick and error-free data transfer, because the data entered through scanning the bar codes is posted synchronously in SAP R/3. Handling units are useful in transportation as well, because a container could be packed into a truck.© SAP AG SCM631 2-29
  • 40. Goods Issue with Handling Units Outbound Delivery Picking Transfer Order ASN HU-Nr. 69179 HU-Nr. 69180 HU-Nr. 69179 HU-Nr. 69181 HU-Nr. 69180 HU-Nr. 69181 Goods Issue Outbound Shipment  SAP AG 2002 During picking, if a complete stock pick is made, it is possible to leave the stock in the storage unit and post only the stock to another bin. In Customizing, you can define by storage type or movement type whether the system should transfer the entire handling unit in the confirmation transaction as a default. When confirming a transfer order for a delivery, the pick-handling units are reported to the delivery. This allows the picking and packing to take place with handling units in one step.© SAP AG SCM631 2-30
  • 41. Pick Handling Units Partial picking quantities or lower-level Handling Units are transferred to a picking container. This picking container represents a Handling Unit itself, the pick Handling Unit. Process steps for picking are: Taking an empty pick Handling Unit Getting the stock with the options of: Full Handling Units Item Transfer Handling Unit to Handling Unit Nested Handling Unit to Pick Handling Unit Unpack Stock from Nested Handling Unit to Pick Handling Unit Splitting the TO Item, if Pick Handling Unit overflows  SAP AG 2002 Picking for deliveries with handling units basically involves a pick-and-pack scenario. This means that after the transfer order is confirmed, the pick-Handling Unit is always assigned to the delivery. The result is that the delivery is always packed completely after finished confirmation.© SAP AG SCM631 2-31
  • 42. Functions of RF and Handling Units The functions of radio frequency processing with HUs are: Pick and Pack Pack and Unpack Load and Unload Handling Unit Detail Handling Unit Labels LM18 Handling Unit Inquiry LM19 Handling Unit - Pack LM22 Handling Unit - Unpack LM24 Packing HU by Delivery LM25 Unpack HU by Delivery LM35 Load Control - Detail by HU LM45 Pick and Pack LM46 Pick and Pack by Delivery LM66 Goods Issue by HU LM76 Goods Receipt by HU  SAP AG 2002 Pick and pack allows you to pack goods during the picking process. If you select a handling unit for an outbound delivery, you can specify the packaging material that you want to use and pack the goods directly. The handling-unit identification is assigned to the transfer order for picking. Pack and unpack, with its the radio frequency function, supports creation of handling units during goods receipt and in the warehouse. You can use loading and unloading functions to control the loading and unloading of handling units from or onto different means of transport. You can use the corresponding inquiry function to call up detailed information about handling units. The radio frequency function also supports printing of handling unit labels.© SAP AG SCM631 2-32

  • 45. Storage Unit Management - Exercises Unit: Storage Unit Management Topic: Storage Unit Management In this exercise, you will: • Create a storage type for SU-managed materials • Customize your SU-managed area to use bin sectioning • Post a goods receipt • Create and confirm a transfer order with an SU number • Display a storage unit In one area of your warehouse, you manage spools of cable for maintenance purposes. It is a business requirement to know how many meters of cable are on a spool. The amount of cable on a spool can vary by about 50 meters. You want to manage these spools using storage unit management so you can see for each storage unit how many meters of cable you have. These spools are stored on industrial size pallets (IP) in a section of the warehouse that is laid out in aisles. 1-1 Verify that Storage Unit Management is allowed in your warehouse then create a new storage type in your warehouse using SUM for spool storage. 1-1-1 Go to the control parameters for your warehouse and verify that SU Management is active. 1-1-2 Create a new storage type 008 for spool storage by coping storage type 007. Activate SU mgmt, deactivate Storage Section Search, and change the description to Spool Storage. 1-1-3 Because you created the new storage type 008, you also need to create a storage section 001. Create the storage section 001- Total Section. 1-1-4 Also because you created the new storage type 008, you must allow the storage unit type IP to be stored there. Go to customizing the strategies, under storage bin type search and allow this pallet size in your new storage type. 1-1-5 Also within Strategies, define bin sectioning for storage type 008. Bin sectioning is available in the placement strategy for pallets. In section A of storage type 008, you have 4 bin sections, (1-4). You must also allow industrial pallets to be stored in the bin section for storage type 008.© SAP AG SCM631 2-35
  • 46. 1-1-6 For the test, you want to direct your spool receipts to storage type 008. Change the storage tyope search sequence so that the cables are sent to storage type 008. Define a new storage type indicator 008, then create the search sequence to direct materials with this indicator into storage type 008. 1-1-7 Create material C-1030-##, Material Type Trading Good, and Industry Sector Mechanical Engineering. Copy material C-1030 and attach the new storage type placement / removal indicator. Create the Basic Data 1, Purchasing, Warehouse 1 & 2, and Accounting 1 views for plant 1000 and your warehouse 1##. On the Warehouse Management 1 & 2 views, enter the stock placement and removal indicator 008. A standard spool should carry 500 meters of cable, but the exact amount of meters on each spool could vary. Enter the palletization data as 500m per IP. 1-1-8 You will need to create some bins in your storage type that will represent the pallets. Create manually bins P-001, P-002, and P-003 for storage type 008, storage section 001 in your warehouse. The storage bin type = P1. 2-1 Test your configuration settings. 2-1-1 Execute a goods receipt without PO for the material C-1030-## quantity 2078 M. 2-1-2 Create a TO for the material you just received. You have received 4 spools with the following lengths: 498, 530, 510, 540. Enter the corresponding palletization data and save. Transfer order number ___________________ Confirm the transfer order. Display the bin. How many quants are in the bin? ___________ How many bin sections are occupied? _______ Storage unit numbers: (1)____________________ (2)____________________ (3)____________________ (4)____________________© SAP AG SCM631 2-36
  • 47. Management - Exercises Unit: Storage Unit Management Topic: Bulk Storage In this exercise, you will: • Customize the bulk storage area • Modify a material master record • Post a goods receipt without reference • Create and confirm a transfer order to bulk storage • Create a goods issue from bulk storage In one area of your warehouse, you manage mixed materials on pallets. These pallets can be stacked in different ways, depending on whether you are stacking large or small pallets. You have a business need to see how many of each material are stored on a given pallet. You want to manage each pallet of material as a storage unit 3-1 Customize the bulk area. 3-1-1 Verify the storage type control for your bulk materials. Find the record for your warehouse and storage type 004. Is management of partial quantities allowed? _________ 3-1-2 You must modify storage type 004 in your warehouse to use storage unit management. Verify that the placement strategy for storage type 004 is Bulk and the removal strategy is FIFO. Activate SU Management. Allow mixed storage without limitation. Remove the entry 001 from the Return Storage Type field. Change the data where necessary. 3-1-3 Now you must return to the storage type control in the first step above to set the totals info. Set the totals column to 1 – Totals info not batch specific. 3-1-4 Define the block structure.

This new lubricant is considered a hazardous material and must be stored accordingly. You need to configure your warehouse for storage of hazardous materials, create the hazardous material master records and assign them to the appropriate material master records. 1-1 Create the warehouse structure for storage of hazardous materials. 1-1-1 Hazardous materials storage type 006 has been previously defined; however, no bins have been created. Create four (4) bins 001 through 004 in the appropriate storage type and storage section. Assign fire containment section B to the stoarge bins with a maximum weight of 1000kg. You can create these bins manually or automatically using the template. 1-1-2 Go into the IMG and activate the hazardous materials check. This check is activated by storage type. Normally, you would activate the hazardous material check in every storage type except your interim storage types so that hazardous materials do not get incorrectly stored in inappropriate areas. For the purposes of this exercise, we will activate the hazardous materials check only in storage type 006. For your warehouse 1## and storage type 006, activate the hazardous material check for the storage type level only. The lubricant is considered a water pollutant. 1-1-3 After you have activated the check, verify the region code for your warehouse (set to the country code of your choice).© SAP AG SCM631 3-11

  • 83. Scenario: Goods Receipt Storage Type 005 Item 1 GR Area Storage Type 015 Item2  SAP AG 2002 In this business scenario, a goods receipt with two items is to be processed in the warehouse. The materials are to be put away in two different areas of the warehouse. What is the time estimate for this process versus the actual time taken? Performance data used in the Warehouse Management system is contained in the transfer order header and include both planned and actual data. Planned data is calculated, pre-existing target data that pertain to the processing of a WM transfer order. The planned TO processing time is the target time, or the time that is expected (planned) for a worker to process an entire transfer order (with one or several items). Actual data is the actual information about the processing of a transfer order. This data includes worker (personnel number), duration (actual time required to process the transfer order), start date and time, end date and time, and TO processing comment code.© SAP AG SCM631 4-5
  • 84. Calculation of Target Data Header Calculations Transfer Order TIME(WM) = Sum[PLAN(Item)] + PLAN(Setup) + PLAN(Travel) TIME(TOTAL) = TIME(WM) + TIME(EXTERNAL) 1 2 Item Level Calculation Plan(Item) = PLAN(Constant) + PLAN (Variable)  SAP AG 2002 The planned processing time in the Transfer Order (TO) header is the processing time for the entire TO as calculated by WM. The planned TO processing time references the time unit (for example, minutes or seconds) that is calculated for the warehouse number. It is calculated as the sum of the planned processing times for the TO items, the setup times and the travel times. TIME(WM) = Sum[PLAN(ITEM)] + PLAN(SETUP) + PLAN(TRAVEL) The total planned processing time includes the planned processing time in WM plus the planned processing time that was transmitted from an external system to WM: TIME(TOTAL) = TIME(WM) + TIME(EXTERNAL) The planned processing time for the TO item is calculated from a constant processing time. For example, the planned setup time for the stock removal process for a TO item is added to the quantity dependent or variable processing time (for example, the processing time required to pick 10 cartons from a storage bin). The formula is: PLAN(Item) = PLAN(Constant) + PLAN(Variable)© SAP AG SCM631 4-6

This data includes the personnel number of the worker and the actual time or the stop and start times. The data is stored in the TO header. The indicator: Actual time required in TO controls whether the entry of actual time for a transfer order is necessary and in which format it is to appear. This indicator also controls which dialog box appears. Depending on the indicator you choose, the system selects the fields that are to be displayed for data entry. With transaction LT1A, you can correct the data in the transfer order afterwards.© SAP AG SCM631 4-7

Use of Actual Data Control of Transfer Order execution Assign a processor prior to the TO execution Recording work accomplished as statistical information Worker and processing time for performance control Selecting workers prior to processing transfer orders Creating processing data for incentive wages Worker, planned and processing times  SAP AG 2002 The transaction Single Entry of Actual Data allows you to assign a processor, using that persons personnel number. This transaction uses report RLLT6300, which requires a variant that is created in Customizing. You can transfer performance data to Human Resources (HR) via batch, and calculate incentive wages there. The batch program, RLT1HR00 (Interface WM pick orders → HR performance wage), calls an HR function module, which generates BAPIs to be processed in HR.© SAP AG SCM631 4-8

Splitting Transfer Orders for Large Deliveries Goal: Balanced workload based on volume and time TO #1 Transfer order as pick list Automatic split criteria : Company DEL M Company TO #2 Picking area Invoice Invoice Planned time of Transfer Order Weight Delivery TO #3 Volume User Exit Transfer Orders  SAP AG 2003 Using the key for the movement type, the source and destination storage type, you can assign a performance data profile to a transfer order. Since the storage types in the transfer order are not at the header but at the item level, an implicit split is executed for the transfer order with a performance data profile. This means that the performance data profile applies to all items. For organizational reasons an explicit split might be desired, for example, a split according to picking areas or a parameter limit with respect to volume, weight or target time. Appropriate sorting of the TO items is a prerequisite for a suitable split.© SAP AG SCM631 4-10
  • 89. Transfer Order Splitting DELIVERY Transfer Order Not fulfilled Split Criteria? Fulfilled Transfer Transfer Transfer Order Order Order  SAP AG 2002 To achieve a balanced distribution of the workload of the warehouse, transfer orders can be split. Together with the splitting process, dynamic sorting of the TO items takes place. For this sorting process, you can use the sequence field in the storage bin. This field allows you to enter the exact sequence in which the storage bins are to be processed. Transfer orders are split by a profile for the warehouse number. You can split the transfer orders by storage type and picking area: Target time (header information), volume, and weight as value limits. User exits are available for sorting and for splitting.© SAP AG SCM631 4-11

Queue  SAP AG 2002 Putaway process The warehouse employee scans the storage unit or the transfer order; with this information, the system tells him where to put the goods. When the goods are placed in the bin, the bin can be verified. This concludes the putaway process. Picking process The warehouse employee looks at a radio frequency terminal. This terminal displays the next transfer order, which indicates where to pick the next materials. At the bin the material or the EAN number can be verified by scanning it. Then the goods are taken to the goods issue area. Load control Packing and unpacking can be controlled by RF devices. There are different selection criteria such as loading for a shipment or for an outbound delivery, on the basis of identifiable shipping units. Inventory The physical inventory can be processed for storage bins or storage units. The user can choose a specific bin to be counted, or may be assigned to an inventory document at its creation time. After this, the user can work in a system-guided way. Stock information Information about material stock can be displayed. This supports selection by storage bins, goods receipt date, and shelf-life expiration date. Queue At TO creation time, transfer orders are assigned to different queues, thereby building workloads in those queues. To react in a flexible way to changes in workload or the available resources, you can change the assignment of the user to a queue.© SAP AG SCM631 5-10

You customize this by the definition of the menu management in the Customizing of mobile data entry (in the IMG choose Logistics Execution → Mobile Data Entry → Define Menu Management). You can assign a specific transaction or menu to a dynamic menu, that is described by a text. Menus, in turn, are assigned to further menus or transactions. For example, you define a main menu MAIN00 that contains five menus and one transaction. The menus are Putaway Activities, Picking Activities, Inventory, Inquiry, and Load Control; the transaction is called Queue and leads to transaction LM77. When you select Putaway Activities, you are taken to the next menu, which contains more menus or transactions. You can customize the menus and transactions that occur for each user.© SAP AG SCM631 5-11

System Guided SU Barcode 10000001181  SAP AG 2002 The RF function leads the warehouse personnel through the warehouse activities step-by-step, by displaying the information of transfer orders on the RF Terminal. There are different possibilities to define the activity, for example, the transfer order that is to be processed next. The worker in the warehouse can scan the bar code of the transfer order and get the relevant information. Alternatively, the system can assign a transfer order to a worker by queue assignment. If you have chosen system-guided management, the sorting of the transfer orders can be customized. The different possibilities to sort the sequence are: (blank): Sorting by TO number 1: Sorting by creation date 2: Sorting by priority of the transfer order 3: Sorting by a user-exit© SAP AG SCM631 5-12

Radio Frequency: Queue Management Goods receipt Queue Goods receipt: TO TO #45 TO #46 #45 TO #46 Fixed bin High-rack storage storage TO #47 Queue Goods issue: Goods issue TO #47  SAP AG 2002 To organize the distribution of activities in the warehouse, you need to define queues that group similar activities. A queue that combines the activities for goods receipts can be defined and all related activities are assigned to this queue. Transfer orders for putaways are processed within this queue. Therefore, transfer orders and users are assigned to a queue. Queues are necessary to coordinate the different RF activities in the warehouse. The view for each user at an RF terminal is limited to transfer orders of that users current queue. Queues can be defined for different activities, doors, and areas in the warehouse number. This enables high flexibility for the definition of different queues that coordinate the processing of transfer orders.© SAP AG SCM631 5-14

Radio Frequency Monitor Queue Goods Receipt Queue Goods Issue TO #45 TO #46 TO #46 TO #46 TO #45 TOTO #48 #46 User Joe Strummer User Mick Jones TO #47 TO #51 TO#46 TO#48  SAP AG 2002 For the coordination of activities and users assigned to different queues, the central tool is the RF Monitor. It takes over the assignment of transfer orders created in the warehouse to queues. This assignment is based on the transfer type, and the source and destination data in the transfer order. You can also manage the workload and capacity of queues. You can display the number of assigned transfer orders and users, as well as the ratio of users to the workload in any particular queue. Individual transfer orders can be sorted by creation date and time, with additional detailed information. You can manually move transfer orders and users from one queue to another by dragging and dropping. This enables a quick and flexible response to unplanned situations. It is possible to forward transfer orders from one queue to another. If there is no user available to process the transfer order, you can automatically forward the transfer order without manual movement. The transfer priority of transfer orders can be changed and, as a result, the processing sequence can also be changed by that changed priority.© SAP AG SCM631 5-15

  • 123. Radio Frequency - Exercises Unit: Radio Frequency At the conclusion of this exercise, you will be able to: • Configure the radio frequency processing in the SAP Warehouse Management System. • Set up the verification control for RF transactions. • Define the menu management within RF transactions. • Define and configure queues and the RF Monitor. In your warehouse, you use handheld terminals for paperfree communication. All transfer orders in the warehouse in the fixed bin area are processed via RF. You want to separate the inbound movements and the outbound movements into different work areas. Therefore, you define different queues. Goods receipts from inbound deliveries are processed completely from the mobile devices. You receive material from a purchse order and process the the stock placement and the goods receipt posting from the RF transaction. You create the inbound delivery yourself.. 1-1 For RF processing, you want to verify the storage bin where the worker places or removes the materials. Change the verification field of the storage bins in storage type 005 in your warehouse 1##. 1-1-1 The storage bins are named 400-## through 410-##. You do not want to verify the complete storage bin name but create a unique verification code for every bin. Create the verification field from the second and third characters of the bin name, for example bin 400-## has verification field 00. 1-1-2 Use the bin status report to display the changes. Display the verification fields using the ABAP List Viewer technique. 1-1-3 Assign material T-BW20-## to storage bin 402-## and material T-BW21-## to storage bin 405-##. Assign the putaway and stock removal type indicator FIX to the two materials because the storage type search sequence goes to storage type 005 first when this indicator is set.© SAP AG SCM631 5-33
  • 124. 1-2 For RF processing in the warehouse, you need to define the parameters regarding which data appears on the RF screens. When processing a TO with RF, you want the source bin of a movement to be available as soon as possible. Set the confirmation control in your warehouse accordingly. 1-2-1 Set a separate confirmation for material pick and transfer for your warehouse number 1##. 1-2-2 Set putaway and pick confirmation for the storage types 005 – Fixed Bin, 902 – GR Area External Receipts and 916 - Shipping Area Deliveries. 1-2-3 You find the confirmation control in Customizing of Warehouse Management. 2-1 Define the data you want to verify when processing a transfer order with RF. 2-1-1 Define two profiles, one for stock placement and one for stock removals in your warehouse 1##. For putaways, define profile IN1## with verification of destination bin and destination quantity. For removals, you want to use a profile OUT1## with verification of source bin and destination quantity. 2-1-2 Assign the verification profiles to the inbound and outbound movements. The respective movements are from the GR zone (storage type 902) to fixed bins (storage type 005) and from there to the shipping area for deliveries (storage type 916). The movement types are goods receipt purchase order (101) and GI for delivery (601). 2-2 Menu management defines the sequence of the screens on the RF terminal and the position and name of the pushbuttons. Copy the entries for the dynamic menu management from warehouse 001 to your warehouse 1##. 2-2-1 Name the default follow-up menus of the entry screen MAIN? 2-2-2 What are the follow-up transactions from the menu named PTWY01? 2-2-2 Since you do not use the storage unit or handling unit number for verification, you want to delete the transactions for selection by SU from the putaway menu PTWY01. Delete the transactions Select by SU and Clustered from the menu PTWY01 and move the remaining transactions to first, second and third position in this menu.© SAP AG SCM631 5-34
  • 125. 2-3 For the assignment of workload to workers in the warehouse, you want to use queues to organize the processes. Define different queues in your warehouse 1## for inbound and for outbound processing. You want to have different processors for inbound and outbound movements. 2-3-1 Define the queue GR001 – GR to fixed bin in your warehouse 1##. Also, define an outbound queue GI001 – GI fixed bin. 2-3-2 With a movement concerning storage type 005, the TO has to be processed in the appropriate queue. Assign the areas and the activities. Set the values for source storage section, destination storage section and door to ***. 2-3-3 Assign your user LO531-## to the inbound queue. Set the user to Active. Specify the default values for logging on, since there is the presentation screen 8X40 and the default menu MAIN.© SAP AG SCM631 5-35

These include the creation of sales or purchasing documents for different checks and subsequent invoice handling. The Warehouse Management system (WMS) includes functions that handle warehouse processes. These functions include planning aspects, goods receipt, storing and goods issue, and monitoring warehouse activities. Communication between ERP and WMS takes place through Business Application Programming Interfaces (BAPIs).© SAP AG SCM631 6-5
  • 140. Overview of Processes Sales Order Purchase Order BAPI In-/Outbound BAPI Outbound Inbound Delivery Delivery Replication Replication Delivery Transfer Order ERP ERP Confirmation TO BAPI BAPI Goods Issue Posting of Goods Receipt Confirmation goods movement Confirmation Invoice Invoice WMS  SAP AG 2002 For incoming as well as outgoing processes, the inbound or outbound delivery serves as a basis for activities in the warehouse. The delivery is created for a sales order or a purchase order. During creation of a delivery, the system establishes whether it is relevant for distribution (see note below). If it is, a BAPI is called when the delivery is saved. This BAPI starts the creation of an intermediate document (IDoc) and sends the delivery to the WMS. There, replication of the delivery is done. This replication serves as a basis for subsequent processes in the warehouse, such as creation and confirmation of transfer orders, printing shipping documents, and posting goods movements. Posting the goods issue (or goods receipt) clears the interim storage bin and calls a BAPI. This BAPI confirms to the ERP system the data that was created or changed in the WMS (such as, quantities, weight, packaging, and batches). When the confirmation is received in the ERP system, the goods movement is executed in Inventory Management. Note: The delivery is only relevant for distribution when all delivery items match in plant and storage location, and the combination of plant and storage location is allocated to a warehouse number. The warehouse number carries the information about a decentralized warehouse management system. To use this function, you have to use the delivery split by warehouse number. A delivery can be distributed only if all items are determined for this warehouse.© SAP AG SCM631 6-6
  • 141. Connection to Several ERP Systems Decentralized WMS ERP 1 ERP 2 ERP n  SAP AG 2003 The following prerequisites must be fulfilled if you connect several ERP systems to a decentralized WMS: Unique numbers for master data in decentralized WMS. The various customer master records, vendor master records, and material master records from the various ERP systems must have unique numbers so that a master records can always be read clearly in the decentralized WMS. Unique numbers for organizational units in decentralized WMS. The various plants and storage locations must have unique numbers in the decentralized WMS. Unique delivery numbers in the decentralized WMS. In the decentralized WMS, the deliveries from the various ERP systems must be unique. Make sure that on replication of the deliveries, they are unique in the decentralized system. (If the same delivery numbers come from several ERP systems, you can use customer exit V50S0001 and function module EXIT_SAPLV50S_001 to reassign the numbers. In this way, you can ensure that the delivery numbers in the decentralized system are unique.)© SAP AG SCM631 6-7

You can make this kind of change either in the central system or in the decentralized system.© SAP AG SCM631 6-8
  • 143. Inventory Postings Posting Record IM 1 2 Posting Create delivery Distribute to WMS Physical stock movement Confirm to ERP Execute IM Posting  SAP AG 2002 In contrast with the integrated scenario, inventory postings in the ERP system are not posted immediately. With the creation of the IM posting, an inbound or outbound delivery is created and communicated to the WMS (in the same way as a delivery for a sales order or for a purchase order). With the confirmation of the delivery from the WMS, the posting in Inventory Management is executed automatically. To make this scenario possible, adjustments are required in Customizing for the warehouse number and for the reference movement type needed for the creation of the delivery. Stock movements are possible where material is moved out of or into WMS. Posting changes (for example, material X to material Y) are not yet possible. Stock movements are possible only in two steps; one-step movements are not possible in this scenario.© SAP AG SCM631 6-9
  • 144. Delivery as an Interface Distribution Status Not relevant A Relevant B Distributed C Confirmed  SAP AG 2002 In the decentralized scenario, the delivery is the main means of communication between the systems. To reconstruct the status of the inbound or outbound delivery in the ERP system, a distribution status is used. This status indicates whether there is a decentralized scenario. If this is the case, the status indicates whether the delivery is relevant for distribution, distributed, or already confirmed by the WMS. If the delivery has the status relevant, it can be changed (as long as a combination of plant/storage location is found in the header that is linked to a decentralized warehouse). When the delivery is saved, the distribution to the decentralized system takes place. An ERP delivery with the status distributed can be changed to a limited degree only. The delivery can be changed in the WMS only. With the goods movements postings in the WMS delivery, there is an automatic confirmation to the ERP system where the goods movements are executed in Inventory Management. To record this step, the distribution status is set to confirmed and the goods movement status is set to Completely processed. After this, invoicing can be processed.© SAP AG SCM631 6-10

This reference gets lost when the delivery is sent to the WMS because the previous documents are not distributed. A delivery item reference provides information about the previous documents using selected data from the purchase order or the sales order that is relevant for the WMS. The document flow to the previous document is not visible in the WMS.© SAP AG SCM631 6-11

In certain scenarios (for example, the generation of the distribution model and possible stock comparisons), direct communication is set up. To enable this communication, a distribution model must be generated that contains all objects for the information flow. In the IMG, there is a tool that enables you to maintain a distribution scenario. All objects are available that are sent or received by the systems. The distribution model is generated for an already existing warehouse number, and sets up the basis to communicate different information with the decentralized WMS. The objects that are to be distributed are made up from master data and application data. The distribution differs in each installation. Therefore, you should create your own message types (for example, material master, vendor master and customer master records). Customer master record and material master records have to be distributed, whereas vendor master records and classification depend on the necessity in their decentralized system. In principle, only the required master data should be distributed, so that the WMS can work efficiently. Data that has only local significance is maintained in the WMS (for example, Warehouse Management Views in the material master). Distribution of master data and application data from the ERP to the WMS: material master, customer master, vendor master, classification, inbound delivery, outbound delivery Distribution of master data and application data from the WMS to the ERP: batches master, confirmation inbound delivery, confirmation outbound delivery, inventory postings© SAP AG SCM631 6-12

Distribution Model: Procedure Define Message Types Define Message Types Generate Distribution Model Generate Distribution Model Generate Addresses (optional) Generate Addresses (optional) Generate Partner Profile Generate Partner Profile ERP Distribute Model to WMS Distribute Model to WMS WMS Generate Partner Profile Generate Partner Profile  SAP AG 2002 Before generation of the distribution model, the reduced message types for material master, customer master, and vendor master must be created. Also, logical systems must be defined for both the ERP system and the WMS. After this, you can start the generation per warehouse number. You have the option of using filters to distribute only certain views of the material or customer master. This can be useful if the material master is maintained for different organizational units, but data in the WMS is only needed for one organizational unit. If you need the address file, the distribution of the addresses is intended as an independent object. Therefore, you have a separate generation function on the final screen of the generation of the WMS distribution. After the generation, it is possible to generate the necessary partner profiles for all messages and methods in the created model view. Afterwards, the model view can be introduced to the WMS. The distribution model itself is sent to the WMS. With this step, the communication channels are known in the WMS. Finally, generate the partner profiles in the WMS. Note: Depending on whether both systems are provided by SAP, the distribution model is to be generated only (in SAP R/3) or to be generated in the ERP system and then distributed (when both systems are provided by SAP).© SAP AG SCM631 6-13
