Hi,

1 may i know what is storage location? and what is the use to have storage location?

A storage location is a physical location used for storage of goods. It is defined in the system as a 4 character (alpha-numeric) code. All storage locations are created for a plant using OX09. At MM-IM level storage location is lowest level at which stocks are maintained, but if WM module is implemented, then the stocks are maintained at BIN level.

2 is it a physical place?

Yes, as during audit you would have to show the location.

3 only in MM? SD also use storage location?

To my knowledge not relevant for SD, as the stocks are managed as customer stock which is a special segment, but please verify the same with SD consultant.

Hope the above helps.

Regards,

Vivek

Hi,

A storage location is the place where stock is physically kept within a plant.

A storage location has the following attributes:

There may be one or more storage locations within a plant.

A storage location has a description and at least one address.

It is possible to store material data specific to a storage location.

Stocks are managed only on a quantity basis and not on a value basis at storage location level.

Physical inventories are carried out at storage location level.

A storage location can be assigned to a warehouse number in the Warehouse Management System. You can assign more than one storage location to the same warehouse number within a plant.

Storage locations are always created for a plant.

Thanks
