742: Warehouse and DC Management (WM): Configuration Guide

1 Introduction
Stock figures are stored in Inventory Management (IM) at storage location level. When stock keeping for
larger warehouses storage is chaotic, that means, when the same articles are stored in several places in
the warehouse and different strategies are used throughout the warehouse, the enhanced functionality of
the Warehouse Management module (WM) has to be used.
The WM module is situated underneath inventory management at storage location level and manages
stocks at storage bin level. It enables you to map complex warehouse structures, with several storage
bins for each article and different putaway and stock removal strategies, within one warehouse.
The scenario of distribution center logistics with warehouse management is based on a completely
installed WM warehouse structure, which is connected to inventory management at storage location level.
This document lists all necessary settings as well additional settings made in the article master, site
master and customizing. Unless stated otherwise, the guide settings for master data sets of
HARDGOODS, FASHION and FOOD. Differences specific to each master data set are noted at the
appropriate points in the guide.

2 Preparation
Before you start installing this building block, you must install prerequisite building blocks. For more
information, see the Building Block Prerequisites Matrix for SAP Best Practices Baseline Package.

3 Master Data
The setup of the Master Data required for the Warehouse Management Best Practice scenarios is
described in the following documents :
Generic:

Configuration Guide 780

Fashion

Configuration Guide 781

Food

Configuration Guide 782

Hard Goods

Configuration Guide 783

These documents detail the settings for the Sites (Distribution Centres), Customers, Vendors, and
Articles.
The creation of the Storage Bin master data, and an Output Condition record required for the Return
Delivery scenario, is also outlined in these documents.

5. In To Warehouse no. enter PC1'

Background:
The copied warehouse number forms the foundation for the definition of an own warehouse. Building onto
a copied warehouse number is less complex than the creation of a new warehouse.

Remarks:
Subsequently the description of the warehouse number should be changed.

Background:
K01 maps a picking area with flat goods. The characteristic value is individual (for example, shelf). Per
bin, multiple articles or variants of a generic article can be stored (Mixed storage). Putaway is according
to fixed bin; pick according to expiry date (food) or FIFO.
Storage sections allow for division of a storage type into multiple areas. For example, dividing the picking
area in a fast turnaround area (easy to reach bins / short paths) and slow turnaround area (hard to reach
bins / long paths). During the creation of the storage bins, they must be assigned a storage section.
Therefore, even if the storage type is not to be divided, a storage section entire section must be created.

Remarks:
Additional storage types can be created in an analogous way.

Background:
'R01' is a reserve warehouse with palette places (for example, high rack warehouse). If needed, goods
can be moved to the picking area K01. A pallet assembled as much as possible from one article in goods
receipt is put away here completely (Mixed storage is possible so that variants of generic articles can be
stored). The putaway is done according to the free space strategy; pick according to expiry date (food)
or FIFO.
Storage sections allow for division of a storage type into multiple areas. For example, dividing the picking
area in a fast turnaround area (easy to reach bins / short paths) and slow turnaround area (hard to reach
bins / long paths). During the creation of the storage bins, they must be assigned a storage section.
Therefore, even if the storage type is not to be divided, a storage section entire section must be created.

Background:
The storage bin structure specifies the structure of the numbering of the storage bins, for example,
sequential numbering, passage/level, 3D coordinates, etc. During creation all the bins defined within the
structure are created automatically. Single bins may be deleted as long as they are not occupied by
merchandise.

4.1.12

Generate Interim Storage Bins

Prerequisites
PCS warehouse number and storage types must exist.

Procedure
1. Access the activity using one of the following navigation options:

2. Generate interim storage bins for warehouse number 'PC1'.


3. In the warehouse number, enter 'PC1'

Background:
Some interface storage types do not use dynamic storage locations or cannot create these when goods
movements without references are posted. For this a interim storage bin has to be created to take up the
moved quants.
Example: Storage bin IN-ZONE of storage type 902 (GR area external rcpts) takes up inbound goods
which where created without reference to an order (Movement type 501).

Remarks:
The names of the interface storage types are defined in the WM movement type.

Background:
The entries here mean that articles without a type indicator are putaway into 'R01' and picked out of 'K01',
or when not there, out of every other storage type (***).
With TypKz 'RES', 'R01' is used for putaway and pick, and when this is not successful ('R01' full during
putaway or empty during pick) 'K01' is used.
TypKz 'KOM' means that, that putaway is done into in 'K01', if 'R01' is full and pick is done out of 'K01'. If
'K01' is empty; pick is not done out of 'R01' but warehouse-internal replenishment is waited for (pick type
remains 'K01').
'BLK' means pick and Putaway out of/into 'B01' (bulky goods).

Enter an 'X' in row 'PC1' - 'R01' in the column 'Section Check active'.

Background:
Storage section indicators are entered in the article master and control (here) the putaway of fast-selling
and slow-selling goods in the appropriate storage sections. Without an indicator or with indicator '001', a
bin in the fast turnaround area is sought; with the indicator '002', the article is slow-seller. If there is no
space in the intended area, a bin is sought in the other storage section.

Remarks:
A similar procedure would be possible for the storage type K01, but since here fixed bins are assigned per
article, a storage section check during Putaway would not be sensible.

Background:
The storage bin type search and check means that storage units are only put away into bins that can
contain them. In the example, the storage units 'GB' and 'E1' (assumed: both have a height of 1 meter)
and 'E2' (height 2m) are created. The storage bin types are 'E1' (Height 1m) and 'E2' (Height 2m). With
the storage bin type search, it must be taken care of that no 2m high storage units are put into 1m high
storage bins.

Background:
In the wave picks profile the properties of a wave pick are summarized, especially the capacity
limitations. The profile is then allocated to the timeslots. As many profiles are needed as different capacity
situations occur in the warehouse.
The Creat. type means that outbound deliveries are bundled in waves whose compare times are within
a timeslot of the planned timeslot group.

Remarks:
The settings of 3-7 pick items per wave are selected for demo purposes and will need to be set to realistic
values in the customer project. Other restrictions (according to weight, value, etc.) or combinations
thereof can also be selected.

A timeslot is time period in which outbound deliveries (whose compare times must be within the timeslot)
can be combined into a wave pick. In this way, one wave pick is formed per timeslot (if there are any
outbound deliveries within the timeslot).
By allocating a wave pick profile to a timeslot it is possible to model capacity restrictions.

Parameters - Settings:
For the newly created storage types 'R01', 'K01', 'B01' (Hardgoods), 'H01' (Fashion) and 'F01' (Food), set
'PZ' ('Continuous inventory') as the physical inventory type.
In storage type 'R01', delete the flags 'ZeroCkIn' and 'ZeroCheck'. This is however only necessary for use
as a demo system, so that Zero Checks are not constantly needed during picking. In actual operation,
these flag settings can be desirable.

Background:
It can be set per storage type which physical inventory type should be used.
The use of Zero Checks in high-rack warehouses makes sense since a bin is always empty when an
entire pallet is picked.

Copy the entries of movement type 101, 501, 601 and 999 resp. all warehouse types from warehouse
number '001' onto 'PC1'.
Reduce all durations to 1 sec.

Background:
Only after the critical duration period the process is displayed in the warehouse monitor. These
durations are to be redefined in the project according to customer requirements. For demo
purposes these durations have been reduced to 1 sec. so that the objects become critical immediately
after creation and thus appear in the warehouse monitor.
In the customer project it is advised to maintain critical durations for all further movement types.

Background:
The workload table is the central reference for the rough workload estimate.
Here a variable load per UoM and a fixed load per item have to be maintained in work seconds for each
combination of warehouse number, storage type, warehouse operation, Unit-of-measure load category
and logistic load category.

Remarks:
The values maintained here are incomplete in terms of logistic load category and are only maintained for
the outbound processes. The selected durations are arbitrary and the maintained data thus serve as an
example only. If the rough workload estimate is to be used in a customer project the complete expansion
and completion of the entries has to take place.

Check/enter your settings.

Background:
Currently picking in the DC takes place via two separate storage locations, 0001 for lean WM and 0003
for full WM. For articles that need to be managed in the full WM the storage condition WM has to be
maintained in the article master. These settings are only used when 'MALA' is set as a rule for picking
determination

Remarks:
Customizing of the reference DC (R100) needs to be completed before creating further sites. Alternatively
settings have to be also maintained manually for VZ01. This customizing setting is copied from the
reference site when creating sites.
