Synchronous Kanban

Hi EWM Expert,

I'd come across below blog for synchronous replenishment of kanban card with WT.

But not sure if we can add multiple steps e.g. determine storage process & add multiple steps to replenish the stock.

Link :- https://blogs.sap.com/2020/03/09/new-kanban-replenishment-strategy-in-embedded-extended-warehouse-ma...

But I think since for POSC HU is mandatory therefore this does not seem possible.

Please correct me if possible.

Regards,

Ganesh

Hello,

You shoud be able to add multiple steps using POSC.

You need to assign storage proccess to WOCR.

I tested with process steps OB01, OB02 and OB03 and it worked properly.

HU stock at storage type level is not mandatory requirement for POSC to work. All you need to make sure is to have pick HU while confirming OB01 WT (in case, you don't have HU stock or you don't pick full HU). Once you have pick HU at pick WT confirmation, POSC will work. If you confirm pick WT w/o pick HU then system won't follow POSC.

Observation:

1-System makes the KANBAN FULL once pick step OB01 is confirmed. It should happen after OB03 is confirmed.

2- Staging area determination is not working as per /SCWM/STADET_OUT.

3- Staing area determination also not working as per destination bin maintained in WPT settings. However, if you have maintained any destination storage type/bin in WPT then it should be same as in control cycle.

If you need more steps like complex staging and loading then you should go for delivery based KANBAN model.

If you need OB01->PACK1->PACK2->PACK3->PACKn->OB03 then it should be possible with standard setup of POSC.

Hello Aslam,

Did you tried this for PSA EWM managed in separate sloc ? or PSA EWM managed in AFS?

Because I also observed different behavior for different scenario.

I tired the case with pick HU as you mentioned and added storage process in WOCR but some how it did not worked for me.

Can you please show how did you maintained the POSC?

Please show me the source & destination bin for both steps.

If I understand you have tried above scenario for synchronous kanban?

Can you please provide me your mail ID to connect offline? You can drop me mail at navalega@gmail.com

Also can you let me know what internal step did you used for external process step OB01, OB02 & OB03.

Since I want to move the product from high rack to hand over area then to stage area which wills supply to PSA.

High rack to Handover - WT1 Handover to Stage area WT2 & last WT3 to confirm to PSA area.

Note :- I do not want to use any work center while confirming this task all are just internal movements.

Hi Aslam,

I also tried for delivery based Kanban with POSC but somehow it is not working for me. Storage process & step get identified but not able to create subsequent steps in POSC.

Refer below screen shot

Note for S4 embedded delivery based POSC triggered TWPR i.e. posting change doc not OPS & TWPR WPT is not have PICK activity it has category 7 & activity STCH so not sure if this can be achieved in S4.

Please let me know when the WT gets created in EWM does it create other task as well this is difficult to understand can you please provide few more screen shot to understand how does system behaves?

Hi Aslam,

Main challenge here it to achieve this internal steps of movement without using work center and activity INTL as this is internal movement within a warehouse.

Hello,

You need to have atleast one work center to confirm the HU to have the sequence of POSC+LOSC.

You can also setup with full LOSC only. LOSC has some special restriction that you need to make sure- first pick WT must be either HU WT or if product WT then it must be with FULL HU widthdrawl.

I setup with POSC+LOSC

POSC has 3 steps OB01, OB02 and OB3K.

OB01 and OB02 are as per standard SAP. OB3K is copy of standard OB03 with destination bin maintained the same in PKMC CC.

LOSC has been setup from 8030 to PSA 1000.

It worked perfectly with synchronous WT creation. However, it is not so easy to put and see all relevant WT's together . I filtered by HU.

Better to setup this based on delivery model, so it will be easier to see all relevant tasks together attached to the TPS posting change delivery request in /SCWM/MON.

Process steps

Follow below screenshot. Once packing is confirmed then system creates 2 WT - first from packing to final PSA bin that will be inactive and second from packing to handover area 9090. System will follow typical LOSC setup from 8030 to 1000.

0020- Warehouse

9090- Handover area

9020- Staging area

1000- PSA area

For POSC to work you need to make sure either you are picking full HU or having pick HU while confirming OB01 pick step WT.

Observation: same as mentioned earlier. KANBAN gets FULL when step OB01 is confirmed. This is not correct. Please check with delivery model. It may work there correctly. I haven't tested that until now.

Good luck.

Hi Aslam,

Challenge here is if we use posting change the it is assign to standard WPT 4100 & after assigning WOCR still storage process not getting detected this behavior is really strange & if I create custom WPT then standard do not accept it.

No issue thanks for your help, I'll check why it is not working for me.

Hi Aslam,

Just one query for me somehow now WOCR not getting determined even though I assigned it to WPT. Any idea why I'm facing this issue.

I will suggest to assign WOCR to combination of warehouse no + AA + Activity. This is more flexible way to do . Have a look at this customising under cross process- warehouse order-......

Don't assign WOCR directly to WPT.

Hi Aslam,

I identified the issue it says -No packaging material is maintained for packing profile ZPAK. But I had created new packing profile & same is assigned to my WOCR rule & I'd assigned this WOCR to WPT but still WOCR not getting determined.

Is there any way this packing profile has been defaulted in the system. How can I check this? any idea.

Ganesh

What is your idea to use packing profile

You need to do additional setup for packing profile

1- Packing profile assignment to WOCR- done

2- Packaging specification needs to be created and valid condition records for the condition type 0BDL. here you link your packing profile.

3- Need to mention start bin for pick HU creation

If you don't have any special purpose then remove packing profile from the WOCR.

Hi Aslam,

I'm able to achieve this with with work center, but challenge here is to achieve this without using work center.
