Sub storage location for Finished Goods Material

Former Member

Hi MM Gurus,

In our organization, FG materials are physically stored under different sub areas, even though the same lies under single storage location in SAP. Currently the users are downloading the stock information into excel and allocating the mentioned physical storage areas

Since the option of creating further storage locations at the same level or going for warehouse management is not feasible for us, can we resolve this issue by going for any sub storage location (sub dividing the existing storage location into physically storage sub areas)?

Requst your valuable suggestions in this regard.

Thanks & Regards,

What Mr. Irani says is true, but limited to ONE (1) BIN per material per SL. So, in case there are more such subdivisions, this will not work.

Therefore, you are left with two options: best is WM, and if not, then just define more SLs!

Yes your requirement is possible and I have seen it working in one of our client. They named the sub storage location, as STORAGE BIN, and this storage bin data is stored in material master under storage location view. This input field is created with help of abap.

This way your storage location is distributed under sub storage locations namely storage bin, this way you can create areas of your storage location without turning on warehouse management and then assign materials to the storage location and then to storage bin, thus meeting your requirement.
