This strategy is based on whether the quantity required in the warehouse task is large or small. For example, you have a storage type in a warehouse in which you store small quantities of products (a storage type with a fixed storage bin structure). You also have a reserve storage area where you store larger quantities.
The system decides whether it is dealing with a small quantity or a large quantity, depending on the quantity required in the warehouse task. It proposes that stock be removed from either the storage bin of the small quantity storage type or from the storage bin of the large quantity storage type. The system uses the quantity of the standard HU in accordance with the packaging specification as the criterion.
The following figure shows the processing of small and large quantities:
In the example shown in the figure, two storage types are used to fill delivery notes from Sales and Distribution:
· Fixed bin storage
· High Rack Storage Area
The system selects the quant from a storage bin in fixed bin storage, if the required quantity is less than or equal to the quantity of the standard HU in accordance with the packaging specification. If the required quantity is greater than the quantity of the standard HU in accordance with the packaging specification, the system searches for the quant in high rack storage.
See Strategy: Partial Quantities First with the exception that you have defined and assigned two storage type search sequences.
