This process is explained using the transfer of a pallet from production into the warehouse as an example. The goods are brought to the identification point of a high rack storage area on a conveyor belt and are to be put away there.

  1. To create the transfer order, choose Logistics ® Logistics Execution ® Internal Warehouse Processes ® Stock transfer ® Create Transfer Order ® No Source Object in the SAP menu.
  1. In the initial screen, enter the warehouse number, WM movement type (103), quantity, material number, and plant. If you enter a storage unit type (in the Stor.unit type field), the system uses the unit type you enter instead of the storage unit type in the material master record (if available).

If you have a single storage unit type, choose Goto ® Single item to go to the item generation screen. If you are creating a transfer order for more than one storage unit type, choose Enter or Goto ® Preparation to go to the preparation screen where the system proposes storage unit types and quantities.

  1. If you selected the item generation screen (for a single storage unit type), the system proposes the destination storage bin and type, as well as the quantity of material that will be placed in the storage bin. The proposed values depend on the storage unit type and putaway strategy for the storage type, among other things. To create a transfer order that consists of only one item choose Enter. The system returns to the initial screen and issues a message that the transfer order has been created.

If you create a transfer order for more than one storage unit type, you arrive at the preparation screen. The system proposes the palletization from the material master record. You can accept the proposed values or overwrite them. Choose either Goto ® Generate TO item ® Foreground process, or Goto ® Generate TO item ® Background process, to create the transfer order items, which are displayed on the preparation screen.

To save the transfer order, choose Transfer order ® Post. The system returns to the initial screen and issues a message that the transfer order has been created.

The quantity is posted in WM via this transfer order. A negative quantity is posted to the goods receipt interim storage area, while a positive quantity is posted to the destination storage area. These individual quantities cancel each other out, balancing the WM total stock out to zero.

Displaying the Stock Balance

If you want to see the summarized stock overview for a particular material according to storage type, choose Logistics ® Logistics Execution ® Internal Warehouse Processes ® Bins and Stocks ® Display ® Total Stock per Material (Warehouse Management) in the SAP menu.

Posting Goods Receipt in IM

You complete this type of goods receipt by posting it in IM.

  1. Choose Logistics ® Logistics Execution ® Inbound Process ® Goods Receipt for Purchase Order, Order, Other Transactions ® Putaway ® Create Transfer Order ® For Material Document from the SAP menu.
  2. On the initial screen, enter (at least) movement type 101 with reference to the production order, and the plant.

The stock in IM is increased via this function. Additionally a positive quantity is posted to the goods receipt interim storage area in WM. This means that the negative quantity in the interim storage area is deleted, resulting in a positive quantity in the storage bin.
