Understanding EWM's Decision Logic in Handling Purchase Order Receipts

Hello everyone,

I'm seeking insights into how the Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) system operates within an ERP framework, specifically regarding the handling of purchase order receipts. I'm curious about:

1. How does EWM determine the storage location and warehouse number for goods received?

2. What process does EWM follow to decide on the specific storage type and Bin for goods?

3. Could anyone elaborate on the decision-making logic throughout this process?

4. If there are different scenarios, can you please explain how the decision routes vary in these situations?

Any detailed explanation or resource sharing on this topic would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

About the process / logic or we could say strategy I have found the following Help portal link:
