Replenishment is defined as the movement of goods from the warehouse to the shipment locations. In SAP EWM, you can use predefined techniques for replenishment of storage bins. There are different replenishment control fields defined at the storage type level or storage bin level.

Planned Replenishment:

In planned replenishment the system calculates the replenishment in accordance with the defined minimum quantity and maximum quantity. Replenishment control is triggered when the stock is less than the minimum quantity. The system rounds down the replenishment quantity, in other words, the quantity of the warehouse task or the warehouse request, to a multiple of the minimum replenishment quantity.

Replenishment at storage type level or storage bin level

Define two storage types (NESB & NEST) and select replenishment level at storage bin level for fixed bins and storage type level respectively


select replenishment at storage type level


Create bin (fixed bin) for the storage type NESB T.Code : /n/scwm/ls01


Define one storage type (NEST) and select replenishment at storage type level


select replenishment at storage type level


Create one storage bin for the storage type NEST (NEST-01-01-07) T.Code : /n/scwm/ls01


Now go to spro and activate replenishment strategies in storage types (NESB and NEST)







warehouse process type 3010 is used for replenishment


Determine warehouse process type


Go to T.Code: /N/SCWM/FBINASN assign fixed bins for replenishment at storage bin level

one fixed bins is assigned to products


Go to T.Code: /N/SCWM/BINMAT and maintain the the fixed bin


NESB-FIXEDBIN200 is maintained for storage bin and execute it


here maintain minimum and maximum quantity of products for storage bins

Now go to T.Code: /n/scwm/mat1 create and add storage type NESB ,,manintain minimum replenisment quantity


now go to spro and maintain picking strategies for replenishment




Define stock removal control indicator





Go to T.Code : /n/scwm/repl and start planned replenishment


enter details like warehouse number, storage type and product execute it



replenishment run started  and warehouse task 103800 is created

now go to warehouse monitor and confirm the warehouse task 103800



fixed bin NESB-FIXEDBIN200 is replenished with 28 products

Replenishment at storage type (NEST)

Go to T.Code: /n/scwm/mat1 add storage type NEST in the storage type view enter maximum bins minimum replenishment quantity , minimum quantities and maximum quantities

now lets execute replenishment at storage type level


maintain minimum quantity maximum quantity and minimum replenishment quantity

Go to T.Code : /n/scwm/repl and start planned replenishment


enter details like warehouse number, storage type and product execute it




go to warehouse monitor and confirm the warehouse tasks


confirm the warehouse tasks 103801 and 103802


storage bin NEST-01-01-07 is replenished with 30 quantities

 

conclusion :

Replenishment is an internal process and is used to fill up a picking area in accordance with the demand for products.normally warehouses have primary picking zones and buffer zones to manage their inventory. These primary zones are maintained nearby to door areas to use as picking area and maintain with predefined maximum, minimum stock quantity levels. whenever any product stock level falls below minimum stock level, a replenishment WT executes to fill stock up to maximum level.

There are two levels to control replenishment process, one is at storage type level and other one is storage bin level. It means required material quantity can either be determined for the storage type as a whole or, in the case of a fixed bin scenario, for each individual fixed bin in the primary area.
