Freeze book inventory in WMS level

Former Member

Dear All,

I wonder if in WMS level there is a freeze book inventory option like in MM level ?

I want to execute the WMS cycle count inventory (LX26) with the "freeze book inventory" option.

"Freeze the book inventory", at the time of PI, when you enable this indicator, system take snap shot of Quantity and Value in internal tables. That means, you can't hold or stop your business operation during this process. This indicator has the effect that the current book inventory balance is recorded in the physical inventory document. The system compares the counted stock with the frozen book inventory balance to determine any inventory differences.

I know that is possible in Storage Location (MI01) - MM level, but I do not know how to do it in WMS inventory ?

Regards,

/Flavio Marcilio

Dear Flavio,

WM is very based on a real warehouse operation. If warehouse workers are counting the stocks for physical inventory, we can set block for the bin level or storage type level so that other warehouse operation, such as picking, does not have to stop it's operation for the physiscal inventory.

This means that you can still do IM goods movements with interim storage type or other storage types. But for the storage type in Physical Inventory, the block can only be released by clearing the bin once the inventory is complete. Please keep in mind that the Physical Inventory is more flexible than in IM, you can block one storage type for Physical Inventory while the business on other storage type is not affected.

However, due to the data complexity in WM, it is not possible to allow goods movement with the storage type in Physical Inventory. It is too risky that it is very easy to cause data inconsistency with goods movement.

Regards,

Mauro
