SAP EWM Bin to Bin Transfer with Packing

0 Kudos

Hello Experts.

We have configured EWM with Handling Unit (HU). The Bin does not allow more than one HU as per the configuration.

Now, when moving material from one bin to another using /scwm/adhu, a bin was selected where existed an HU with exactly the same material and batch. The system packed the source HU into the Destination HU.

Physically this is not possible as the volume occupied by both the HUs combined cannot be kept in the same bin.

The Status on the monitoring report before the Warehouse Task is as follows (Source and Destination Bins Highlighted):

The Status on the monitoring report After the Warehouse Task is as follows, (Destination Bin Highlighted):

The quantity of material in bin A-1-36 is now added in bin A-1-03 and the net total stock is shown in bin A-1-03

As for the HU, following is the status:

Where the destination HU 1000198503 has a nested HU 1000198496 in it and the quantities are shown against each HU.

The system has packed the source HU into the existing HU at the destination bin. The quantity is updated as a whole and both parent and child HUs are kept in the same Bin.

Given the operations, we need to put a hard stop on it.

How to achieve it?

Can you please provide us with some guidelines?

Thank you,

Hello Khurram,

Another workaround could be to create a Transaction Variant in order to restrict posting in Destination HU field at time of Bin to Bin Transfer.

have done that and the system has restricted the movement of the HU while using the transaction /scwm/adprod. thus addressing the issue at hand.

thank you for the input.
