  2. You create a transfer order for goods putaway.
  3. When you create the transfer order, the system determines the storage bin for the material on the basis of a predefined search strategy.

  4. You put away the goods from the goods receipt interim storage area in one or more storage bins, based on the transfer order.
  5. You confirm the transfer order and enter any differences.
  6. Once you confirm the transfer order, the goods are available in the system.
