                                           SAP-EWM- WAREHOUSE ORDER CREATION RULE

 Introduction : Warehouse Requirement:

There are 3 resource types are responsible to pick the material from a same storage type but, picking condition is Storage bin level based,

ewmbee786_0-1706956500496.png

Human Resource (picker) – 1st level picking,
Forklift- level 2 to level-5 picking,
High reach truck- level 6-10.

How system will assign 1st level picks to only Human Resources? level 2 to level 5 picking tasks should be assigned to Forklifts and level 6 to 10 should be High reach trucks.

How can We achieve the above requirement?

Ans: We can achieve the above requirement by one of the options called Warehouse Order Creation rule (WOCR)

Design:  1) we create three different Activity areas for 3 sections of levels.

                2)  Define and determine the Queue according to the Activity areas.

                 3) Assign these Queues to resource groups.

                3)  Removal strategies to pick

                4) WOCR rule determination for three different activity areas.

Configuration Steps:

  1. Define Storage Type, Storage Bin, Activity Area, Configurations and Master Data

1.1. Define Storage Type

  1. 2. Define Activity Area

1.3. Define Storage Bin Structure

1.4. Assign Storage Bins to Activity Areas

1.5. Define Sort Sequence for Activity Area

Easy Access

1.6. Do Bin Sorting--/N/SCWM/SBST

  1. Resource and Queue Management Config, Master Data

2.2. Define Queue Types

2.3. Define Queues

2.4. Define Queue Determination Criteria.

Easy Access:

2.5. Maintain Resource Group -/SCWM/RGRP

Create Picking Task for three Products One by one- Click on Create+Save.

First Create and Confirming the Task for 7074 product.

ewmbee786_50-1706956500927.png

For 7074 product system created a task assigned the Queue OT01 with WOCR- AA44.

Create the Warehouse Task for 7075 Product.

ewmbee786_51-1706956500949.png

For 7075 product system created a task assigned the Queue OT02 with WOCR- AA45.

Create the Warehouse Task for 7076 Product.

ewmbee786_52-1706956500991.png

For 7076 product system created a task assigned the Queue OT03 with WOCR- AA45.

There are three Warehouse Orders which is in “Open” Status.

ewmbee786_53-1706956501007.png

  1. Confirm this Warehouse Order in RFUI- /N/SCWM/RFUI for forklift resource.

ewmbee786_54-1706956501008.png

 Enter the Packaging Material and click on F2 Handling and select F4 Next.

ewmbee786_55-1706956501011.png

Scan the given information and Press Enter.

ewmbee786_57-1706956501021.png

  1. Go to Display Warehouse Order, we can see Whse Order- 2504 is Confirmed

ewmbee786_58-1706956501034.png

Conclusion:  Three different resource type can be access to three different queues by three different WOCR ( condition based Activity areas -levels ).
