Introduction:

Now a days most of the all-value-added services are  being performed on the product in the warehouse before put away the products.

So, to execute the complex activities in the warehouse, we will follow Storage control processes.

Process oriented storage control is one of them.

Will see one POSC examples in inbound side with Unloading, deconsolidation and put away.

Configuration Steps:

  1. Define Process Oriented Storage Control


              1.1. Define external steps

1.2. Define storage process

1.3. Assign storage step process to storage process

1.4. Setup POSC

  1. Define Warehouse Process type

  2. Define process type determination indicator

  3. Determine Warehouse Process type

  4. Putaway Strategies


5.1. Define storage type search sequence

5.2. Assign storage type to storage type search sequence

5.3. Define put away control indicator

5,4. Specify storage type search sequence for putaway

  1. Specify work center layout

  2. Define work center

  3. Assign bin to Work Center--/N/SCWM/TWORKST

  4. Deconsolidation

    • Define attributes of deconsolidation

    • Specify deconsolidation station

    • Assign number range intervals to consolidation groups



  5. Assign Storage Bins to Activity Areas


Testing:

  1. Create Material Master

  2. Create Product Master--/N/SCWM/MAT1

  3. Create a PO---ME21N

  4. Create Inbound Delivery against to PO---VL31N

  5. Process the Inbound Delivery---N/SCWM/PRDI

    • Create Unloading task



  6. Confirm the WT---/N/SCWM/MON

  7. Deconsolidation Process---/N/SCWM/DCONS

  8. Confirm final putaway


 

  1. Define Process Oriented Storage Control


PATH: SPRO->REF IMG-> SCM EWM-> CROSS-PROCESS SETTINGS-> WAREHOUSE TASK-> DEFINE PROCESS ORIENTED STORAGE CONTROL

1.1. Define external steps


        1.2. Define storage process

     


     1.3. Assign storage process step to storage process


 

1.4. Setup POSC


We don’t enter AD03 step because, my put away will taken care by put away strategies.

  1. Define warehouse process type


PATH: SPRO-> REF IMG-> SCM EWM-> CROSS-PROCESS SETTINGS-> WAREHOUSE TASK-> DEFINE WAREHOUSE PROCESS TYPE





  1. Define process type determination indicator



    4. Determine warehouse process type




  1. Put away strategies


5.1. Define storage type search sequence

PATH: SPRO-> REF IMG-> SCM EWM->GOODS RECEIPT PROCESS-> STRATEGIES->             STORAGE TYPE SEARCH-> DEFINE STORAGE TYPE SEARCH SEQUENCE

We will create two STSS for two products so that it can go into two different storage types.



   5.2. Assign storage type to storage type search sequence.



   5.3. Define put away control indicator



   5.4. Specify storage type search sequence for putaway




  1. Specify work center layout


PATH: SPRO-> REF IMG-> SCM EWM-> EWM -> MASTER DATA-> WORK CENTER-> SPECIFY WORK CENTER LAYOUT




  1. Define work center





  1. Assign bin to Work Center--/N/SCWM/TWORKST





  1. Deconsolidation


    • 9.1.Define attributes of deconsolidation




PATH: SPRO-> REF IMG-> SCM EWM-> EWM-> GOODS RECEIPT        PROCESS>DECONSOLIDATION->DEFINE ATTRIBUTES OF DECONSOLIDATION

Enter the maximum number of WT for putaway HU and also in Deconsolidation HU.


   9.2. Specify deconsolidation station


   9.3. Assign number range intervals to consolidation groups




  1. Assign Storage Bins to Activity Areas



 

 

TESTING

 

Material Master--MM01-6133,6134

  1. Create two materials


Material-6133


 

Material-6134




  1. Extend this material master as Product Master---/N/SCWM/MAT1


Product-6133



Product-6134





  1. Create PO----ME21N



 

  1. Create Inbound delivery Against to PO---VL31N



In one HU we are going to pack two materials. (Assume these two products came in one HU)

Select the packaging material and two materials and click on Pack icon, it is distributed to EWM in 1 Pallet with two materials.




  1. Process the Inbound delivery----/N/SCWM/PRDI



In above screen in EWM we have one HU with two products in it.


   5.1. Create the unloading warehouse task


From the below picture we can observe that System determines storage process which  is assigned to WPT


 

Go to Monitor and check the warehouse order in Inbound delivery

PATH: Inbound delivery->Enter the Inbound delivery no-> Execute-> Select the line item and click on Inbound delivery item Button




 

  1. Check the Storage Process assigned to the warehouse process type, select the line item click on confirm WT in Background.




 

Once we confirm the unloading task system will create 3 more tasks, two are in waiting status -B, one more task for move the HU to Deconsolidation work center.



once deconsolidation process completed then it will turn to open.



Now do the deconsolidation in work center.

  1. Deconsolidation Process -----/N/SCWM/DCONS




Create two new Hus to pack individual products.



Once packed in two individual Hus click on complete HU process button.

  1. confirm the final put away task after deconsolidation.


(once deconsolidation process completed then it will turn to open.)




In Mon we can observe that two HU’s are going to different Bins.



Conclusion: By above configurations and testing, I hope you understand how we execute Deconsolidation in POSC process.
