The process ofstock removal includes picking goods from storage bins in the warehouse and staging them in the destination storage bin. If you use the Warehouse Management system (WMS), you create a transfer order (TO) for all warehouse movements. You therefore execute stock removal based on a stock removal transfer order. The printed transfer order serves as a picking list.
To make the search for the right material for stock removal easier, the Warehouse Management system offersstock removal strategies. WMS selects the storage type and exact storage bin from which the material is to be picked, according to the stock removal strategy.
The following figure explains the process flow of stock removal from the WM managed warehouse, based on an outbound delivery:
To remove the material from storage you create a transfer order (TO) for the outbound delivery. Several TO items can be created from one outbound delivery item. This is the case, for example, if you have to pick the material for item 2 of the outbound delivery from three different source storage bins in order to remove the quantity specified in the outbound delivery from storage. Item 2 of the outbound delivery creates three TO items.
