Function documentationAssignment of Storage Bins to a Production Supply Area (PSA)

 

You do not assign a storage bin to a production supply area (PSA) directly, instead you define the storage bin in which you want to stage a particular product or product group within a PSA. By making this assignment, you define the following:

  • Determination of the storage bin for staging to the PSA

  • Determination of the storage bin for the consumption of products from the PSA

  • Determination of the storage bin for the physical inventory in the PSA

  • Controlling staging of crate parts

  • Various monitoring functions, such as displaying stock for a PSA, or displaying the storage bins for a PSA

For the organizational models (1) Production storage location in EWM and (2) AFS-Production storage location, the product is stored in this bin from staging until consumption posting.

For the organizational models (3) IM storage location and (4) Production storage location in another warehouse number, the product is stored in this bin after picking. However, the stock is posted to the staging outbound delivery during goods issue posting.

Features

Assignment of Storage Bins to a Production Supply Area (PSA)

You can manage the storage bin assignment at multiple levels for each PSA:

  • Default storage bin for each party entitled to dispose

  • Storage bin for each party entitled to dispose and product group

  • Storage bin for each party entitled to dispose and product

For the organizational models (3) IM storage location and (4) Production storage location in another warehouse number, you do not need to enter a storage bin. As an alternative, you can select the Staging Determination for Outbound Delivery indicator. In this case, the system determines the staging area as in the standard outbound delivery process.

For the storage bin assignment for each product group, you must also do the following:

  • Define a product group type in Customizing.
