Additional Details

Synchronous goods movement allows you do to the following

  • Keep manual posting effort to a minimum

  • Improve visibility and control in your warehouse operations

  • Perform synchronous updates of stock in inventory management and in warehouse management

  • Post goods receipt from repetitive manufacturing into a bin-managed storage location without delivery and warehouse request documents

  • Post goods issue for consumption by backflush from a bin-managed production supply area without delivery and warehouse request documents

When the finished product is confirmed by repetitive manufacturing, the system automatically posts goods issue of the consumed materials from stock with the goods receipt of the finished product into the warehouse. The system posts the goods receipt and goods issue in one material document.

You can specify whether you want to create warehouse tasks for putaway automatically or manually for different products:

  • For products where you want to move the products from the goods receipt bin to the final storage bin, you can use automatic warehouse task creation to create the warehouse tasks during goods receipt posting.

  • For products where you want to pack the product into a handling unit before putaway, you can create the warehouse tasks manually after you have packed the handling unit.
