Cross-Line Putaway in EWM vs. HU-Type/Bin-Type

0 Kudos

Hi everybody,

I would like to use a special sort sequence for my putaway strategy.

Here is my example:

I have defined three bins with my activity area CLSP:

Bin 01-01-01 with Bin -Type A - Sort Sequence CLSP 3

Bin 01-01-02 with Bin - Type B - Sort Sequence CLSP 2

Bin 01-01-03 with Bin - Type C - Sort Sequence CLSP 1

I aim to putaway in bin 01-01-03 first.

When I start my putaway process with HU-Type 01, I am getting always Bin - Number 01-01-01 first, because the search sequence for HU-Type / Bin - Type found Bin-Type A first.

I thought the sort number for CLSP has the main priority?

Does anyone have more experience with this issue?

Thanks.

Regards

Daniel

Thanks Jürgen. I will open an OSS-Note and ask SAP for a solution.

Hi Jürgen,

I deactivate my HU-Type-Check and I get the same result. Maybe it is a different logic, If I am using bulk storage? My storage type is one.

Hi,

as I wrote in my first answer, the system has a bug (in my opinion). Even if you do not activate the HU type check, the system uses the bin types to build a search pattern. You can see that in the log for the WT creation.

It does something like this:

Storage type 1 / section *** / bin type A
Storage type 1 / section *** / bin type B
Storage type 1 / section *** / bin type *** - the last entry means that there is no HU type check. But the first two entries are used first.

Hi Jürgen,

I am using one storage type with HU-Type-Check. All bins I mentioned are assigned to one storage type. My problem: The systems goes to table /SCWM/T303S and take the first sequence entry for the possible combination of HU-Type/Bin-Type and the sorting is not being considered. Our goal is to have the bin sorting done first then subsequent check for the HU-Type permitted for the bin-type.

Then the systems finds a pool of bins with the possible HU-/Bin-Types combination. Do I have the sorting in the pool of bins?

How can we archive our goal?

Thanks.

Hi,

"The systems goes to table /SCWM/T303S and take the first sequence entry for the possible combination of HU-Type/Bin-Type"

No idea what table it is - but yes, if you do a HU type check, you have a "preferred bin type, that is always considered first.

"and the sorting is not being considered. "

I am sure the sorting is being considered - but only within the bins with this prefered bin type.

"Our goal is to have the bin sorting done first then subsequent check for the HU-Type permitted for the bin-type."

But that is not how it works. It says "HU-Type check", but it is also a sequence or limitation you find with it.

What should happen if you do not have a sequence for CLSP?

Hi,

"I thought the sort number for CLSP has the main priority?"

Not really...

If you use things for the determination inside a storage type, like storage section or bin type, these are determined first. Inside lets say the first determined bin types, the sorting with CLSP is then used to search for bins. Starting with the first one which is there, after that CLSP controls the sequence.

So if you have an HU type which is using bin type A first, this is being used first.

BUT: do you use a HU type check or anything with bin types at all? Because there is a bug (in my opinion). If you assign bin types, the search sequence the system builds up always looks into the first bin type (whatever is "first". If you use A, B, C, this is the sequence. If you use E1, E2, that is also the sequence. It is just sorting this alphabetically / numerically). And this happens even if not bin type search / HU type check is active. Again, in my opinion it is a bug. On the other hand you can say that if you do assign bin type, you probably also do some determination using them.
