Configuration of Warehouse Structure and Master


Data for SAP EWM

This document provides an overview of warehouse structure data and master data used in
the standard warehouse W001 or your own warehouse using SAP Extended Warehouse
Management (EWM).

The warehouse structure and master data are used in the business scenario Warehouse
Management with Preconfigured Processes [External].

Prerequisites
You have integrated SAP ERP 6.0 including SAP enhancement package 3 or higher with SAP
EWM 9.0. For more information, see Integration of SAP ERP with SAP EWM [External].

Prerequisites for Option 1


In SAP ERP, you have created a distribution channel 02 in addition to the distribution channel
01, that is delivered in the standard configuration. You do this as follows:

1. Copy the distribution channel 01 in Customizing for Enterprise Structure under


Definition Sales and Distribution Define, copy, delete, check distribution channel
and change the description to Distribtn Channel 02.

2. Change the reference distribution channel for customer and material master to 02 in

As an example the storage type T930 (Doors Inbound) is used and modeled in the system
as storage type for doors used in the business process Inbound Process with Repacking for
Putaway [External]. Two bins are assigned to the storage type T930. Another example is that
the stocks in storage type T051 are created upon returns or replenishment from storage types
T010, T020, and T050.

Process

To set up the warehouse structure in standard warehouse W001, implement all


configuration steps except the steps marked with Optional. These steps help you to
understand the configuration of the processes but do not require a manual activity.

To configure the warehouse structure in your own warehouse, implement all


configuration steps. In the steps marked with Optional, check if you need to adapt the

Checking the Warehouse Number

You can use this procedure to check the warehouse number W001.

This is an optional step in the configuration of the warehouse structure of W001.

In SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM), you combine an entire physical


warehouse under one warehouse number. You can use the warehouse number to manage
several storage facilities, which together form the complete warehouse complex.

On the warehouse number level you specify, for example, the number ranges for the relevant
EWM objects such as warehouse documents. Additionally, settings such as a unit of measure
for weight and volume are assigned. The warehouse number needs to be assigned to a
supply chain unit (SCU) in your system.

For more information about the assignment of the warehouse number to the SCU, see
Warehouse Integration into the ERP Enterprise Structure [External] in Integration of SAP ERP
with SAP EWM [External].

Procedure
1. Check the warehouse number definition in Customizing for Extended Warehouse
Management under Master Data Define Warehouse Numbers .

2. Check the warehouse number assignment in Customizing for Extended Warehouse


Management under Master Data Assign Warehouse Numbers .

3. Check the warehouse number control in Customizing for Extended Warehouse


Management under Master Data Define Warehouse Number Control .

Set up a weight and a volume unit that can be used to define the capacity of a bin
because the units are used for bin capacity check. In warehouse W001 the weight unit
is set to kilogram and the volume unit to cubic decimeter.

4. Check the number ranges for the warehouse number in Customizing for Extended
Warehouse Management under Master Data Define Number Ranges .

Warehouse-independent number ranges are also used for packaging


specification, quality management (QM), transportation units (TUs), and
shipping and receiving (S&R) activities.

5. Check the mapping of the EWM warehouse number to the ERP warehouse number
in Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management under Interfaces ERP

Checking Storage Types

You can use this procedure to check the storage types of warehouse number W001.

This is an optional step in the configuration of the warehouse structure of W001.

A storage type is a storage space, storage facility, or storage zone, which you define for a
warehouse number in SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM). The storage type is a
physical or logical subdivision of a warehouse complex, which is characterized by its
warehouse technologies, space required, organizational form, or function. A storage type
consists of one or more storage bins.

You can define the following commonly-used physical storage types in EWM:

Bulk storage area

General storage area

High rack storage area

Fixed bin storage area

Rack storage area

On storage type level you define the storage type role, for example, staging area group, work
center, doors, or standard storage type.

Characteristics per storage type are listed here to give you an overview about the main
characteristics from a business process and layout perspective (for example, physical
structure, number of bins, bin height, width and depth, how many pallets fit into a bin). Some
of those characteristics are defined on storage type level, some by settings of dependent
objects, and some by the use within the processes.

List of characteristics and how they are defined:

The storage type settings play a central role in the EWM configuration. For more
information, see the field helps in Customizing.

If you want to use the graphical warehouse layout for displaying the warehouse
structure, you need to set the storage type level according to the physical level in
which the storage type is used.

Procedure
1. Check that the storage types mentioned above exist in Customizing for Extended
Warehouse Management under Master Data Define Storage Type .

2. Check the settings below for the deletion of the fixed bin assignment for storage types
T050 and T051 in Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management under
Goods Receipt Process Strategies Delete Fixed Bin Assignment :

Checking Storage Sections

You can use this procedure to check the storage sections of warehouse number W001.

This is an optional step in the configuration of the warehouse structure of W001.

In SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM), a storage section is an organizational


subdivision of a storage type, which groups together storage bins with similar attributes for the
purpose of putaway. The criteria for grouping bins together are freely definable, for example,
heavy parts, bulky parts, fast-moving items, slow-moving items.

For more information about the storage sections defined for each storage type, see
Checking Storage Types [Page 13]. A storage type for doors does not contain any
storage section. A storage type for staging areas must contain a section for the door
determination. For standard storage types we recommend defining at least one
section as additional sections might be required for business processes other than
the preconfigured ones.

Prerequisites
Storage types are already defined in your system.

Procedure
1. In Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management, choose Master Data
Define Storage Section .

2. Check the following storage section definitions for warehouse number W001:

o Storage types T930, T940, and T941 do not have any storage sections
defined.

o Storage type T020 consists of two storage sections: S001 (Fast-Moving


Items) and S002 (Slow-Moving Items).

o Storage type T051 consists of three storage sections: S001 for small parts,
S002 for midsize parts and S003 for large parts.

o Storage type T830 for packing consists of two storage sections: SI01
(Inbound Section) and S001 (Main Section).

o All other storage types consist of a single storage section S001 (Total
Section).

Result
You have checked the configuration of the storage sections in warehouse number W001.

Checking Activity Areas and Activities

You can use this procedure to check the activity areas and activities of warehouse number
W001.

This is an optional step in the configuration of the warehouse structure of W001.

An activity area is a logical section of the warehouse that groups storage bins based on
defined warehouse activities.

Examples of activities include the following:

Putaway

Picking

Physical inventory

For each activity performed in an activity area, you can define a different bin sort sequence.

Activity areas can be generated from the storage types in Customizing for Extended
Warehouse Management under Master Data Activity Areas Generate Activity Area from
Storage Type . In this case the system automatically creates the activity area, assigns it to
the storage type, and defines a default sort sequence for each activity.

Prerequisites
Storage types are already defined in your system.

Procedure
1. Check the following activities defined in warehouse number W001 in Customizing for
Extended Warehouse Management under Master Data Activity Areas Activities
Define Activity :

Warehouse Number Activity Description Warehouse Process Category

An activity area is defined for the standard storage types T010, T020,
and T050. Additionally, the activity areas A001 and A002 are defined for
storage type T051 to separate the areas for picking of large parts and
picking of small and medium sized parts. For the clarification zone CL-
ZONE (storage type T970) an activity area is defined which is used for
putaway purposes. For physical inventory there are three activity areas
defined: Area PIA2 for the bins with fast-moving parts (storage type
T020, storage section S001) and area PIA1 for all other bins of the
standard storage types. Additionally, the activity area PIAC assigned to
storage bin CL-ZONE-PI in storage type T970 is used for unidentified
products found during physical inventory.

3. Check the assignment of the activity areas to the storage types in Customizing for
Extended Warehouse Management under Master Data Activity Areas Assign
Storage Bins to Activity Areas .

4. Check the sort sequence defined for each activity area and activity in Customizing for
Extended Warehouse Management under Master Data Activity Areas Define
Sort Sequence for Activity Area .

You can define the sort and pick-path sequence for activities within the activity area
to optimize the processes running in the warehouse.

Result
You have checked the activity areas and activities in warehouse number W001.

Creating Storage Bins

You use this procedure to create storage bins in warehouse number W001.

A storage type consists of a selection of storage spaces, which are called storage bins in SAP
Extended Warehouse Management (EWM). The storage bin is the smallest spatial unit in a
warehouse. Therefore, the storage bin represents the exact position in the warehouse where
products are and/or can be stored.

Since the address of a storage bin is frequently derived from a coordinate system, a storage
bin is often referred to as a coordinate. For example, the coordinate 01-02-03 could be a
storage bin in aisle 1, stack 2, and level 3.

You can create single storage bins manually or you can create multiple bins at one time using
a storage bin template. You use the functionality for bin generation in storage types with a
large number of bins.

The following table provides an overview of which bins need to be created manually and
which can be generated by template definition delivered by SAP.

Storage Type Storage Bin Creation

T010 (Pallet Rack Medium Parts) To be generated using templates 001 002

T020 (Pallet Rack Small Parts) To be generated using templates 003 010

T050 (Pallet Rack Large Parts) To be generated using templates 011 012

T051 (Rack All Size Parts) To be generated using templates 013 018

Other storage types To be created manually

You can also upload storage bins from an external file. To upload storage bin data from a
legacy system, on the SAP Easy Access screen for Extended Warehouse Management,
choose Interfaces Data Upload Load Storage Bins .

If you want to use the graphical warehouse layout to display the warehouse structure,
you need storage bin types for the created storage bins.

Storage bin types group storage bins according to their physical attributes (for
example, large bins, small bins).

In addition to that, coordinates for the bins and storage bin templates need to be set
up properly.

For more information, see Checking the Graphical Warehouse Layout [Page 47].

Prerequisites
Storage types, storage sections, activity areas, and activities are already defined in your
system.

Procedure
1. Check the following storage bin types in Customizing for Extended Warehouse
Management under Master Data Storage Bins Define Storage Bin Types :

For bin type R27L a max. capacity of 300 is maintained to allow three
europallets with a total capacity of 100 each to be stored in such a bin
(type).

2. Check bin access types in Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management under
Master Data Storage Bins Define Bin Access Types .

You define the bin access type as a resource type qualification. Each bin access type
reflects a resource types ability to access stock located in a specific type of physical
area in the warehouse.

Checking Staging Areas

You can use this procedure to check the staging areas defined in warehouse number W001.

This is an optional step in the configuration of the warehouse structure of W001.

Staging areas are storage sections that fall within a storage type with role D. Staging areas
are used to provide interim storage for goods after unloading or before loading. During
loading, the sequence of the bins in the staging area can be used as a loading sequence.

A staging area is defined in the system by a storage type (called staging area group), a
storage section (called staging area), and one or several storage bins (called staging bays).
Additionally, it must be defined as a staging area in the system. A staging area can be
assigned to one or several doors.

Prerequisites
Storage types with type role D are already defined in your system. They contain at least one
storage section and one storage bin.

Procedure
1. In Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management, choose Master Data
Staging Areas Define Staging Areas .

2. Check the following staging areas defined for warehouse number W001:

Configuring Doors

You use this procedure to configure the doors in warehouse number W001 and assign them
to staging areas.

Most steps of this procedure are optional for warehouse number W001.

A door is a location in the warehouse where the goods arrive at or leave the warehouse. The
door is an organizational unit that you assign to the warehouse number.

A door is defined in the system by a door number and a storage bin (door bin). The storage
bin must be located in a storage type with storage type role F. The storage type does not
contain any storage section. Furthermore, a door is assigned to a staging area.

In warehouse number W001, the doors used in inbound processes are separated from the
doors used in outbound processes.

Prerequisites
Storage types with type role F are already defined in your system. They contain at least one
storage bin.

Staging areas are already defined in your system.

Creating Vendors, Customers, and Carriers

You use this procedure to create the vendors, customers, and carriers used in the
preconfigured business processes in warehouse number W001. You create the vendors,
customers, and carriers in SAP ERP first. They are transferred automatically to SAP
Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) using Core Interface (CIF). In EWM, the vendors,
customers, and carriers are automatically created as locations and business partners.
Business partners are mainly used in the delivery processing, locations in the EWM routing
guide.

Prerequisites
In SAP ERP you have created a distribution channel 02 in addition to the distribution channel
01 delivered in standard as follows:

1. You have copied the distribution channel 01 in Customizing for Enterprise Structure
under Definition Sales and Distribution Define, copy, delete, check distribution
channel and changed the description to Distribtn Channel 02.

2. You have changed the reference distribution channel for customer and material
master to 02 in Customizing for Sales and Distribution under Master Data Define
Common Distribution Channels .

Procedure
1. Create vendors in SAP ERP.

Configuration of Warehouse Structure and Master Data for SAP EWM 51


SAP Library

Important settings:

o Account group

Choose an account group for which CIF is set up, for example, LIEF (Vendor
(ext.number assgnmnt)).

o Confirmation Control

In the purchasing data, choose a confirmation control for which inbound


deliveries are mandatory, for example, 0004 (Inbound Delivery).

2. Create carriers in SAP ERP.

Important settings:

o Account group

Choose account group 0005 (Forwarding agent).

3. Create customers in SAP ERP.

Important settings:

o Account group

Choose an account group for which CIF is set up, for example, KUNA
(Customer (ext.number assgnmnt)).

o Distribution Channels (see prerequisites above)

As the outbound business processes use different sales unit of measures,


you need to create customer master data in two distribution channels.
Distribution channel 01 is used to deliver eaches to the customers in the
business process Outbound Process Using Pick-HUs as Shipping HUs.
Distribution channel 02 is used to deliver cartons to the customers in the
business process Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing,
Staging, and Loading.

o Address

Since the Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging, and
Loading uses different routes to the customers and for each route different
travel distances and transportation durations are defined, we recommend to
maintain the following cities and postal codes for the customers:

Customer Postal code City

CUST001 60311 Frankfurt on the Main

CUST002 55116 Mainz

CUST003 50667 Cologne

CUST004 66111 Saarbrucken

o Region

Each customer is located in a different region. The system copies the


geocoordinates of the region into the EWM location master data. The
geocoordinates are used for distance and transportation duration calculation
in the EWM routing guide in the business process Outbound Process Using
Pick-HUs as Shipping HUs.

Configuration of Warehouse Structure and Master Data for SAP EWM 52


SAP Library

o Transportation zone

It is not necessary to assign a transportation zone to the customers for the


outbound business processes.

o Order combination

If the checkbox is selected, you can create cross-delivery HUs in the


outbound business processes in EWM.

o Shipping conditions

Enter shipping conditions 01 in the sales area data on distribution channel


level. Together with the plant and the loading group of the products they are
used to determine the shipping point of the outbound delivery in the outbound
business processes.

Additionally, you can use shipping conditions in the route determination in


EWM. They are not used in the current outbound business processes
because the delivery types are sufficient to determine different routes in the
outbound business processes.

o Terms of payment

Terms of payment are necessary to create billing documents in the business


process Customer Returns with Quality Inspection.

o Incoterms

Incoterms are necessary to create a sales order in the business processes


Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging, and Loading and
Customer Returns with Quality Inspection. Therefore it is necessary to
maintain the Incoterms for distribution channel 01 and 02.

4. In EWM, change the business partners for the carriers in business partner (BP) role
CRM010 Carrier:

After the CIF transfer, the carriers exist in EWM as business partner with BP role
Business Partner (Gen.). The carriers must also exist in BP role Carrier in EWM for
the creation of transportation units with carrier as well as for the creation of carrier
profiles in the EWM routing guide.

1. On the SAP Easy Access screen for Extended Warehouse Management,


choose Master Data Maintain Business Partner .

2. Select the business partner CARR001.

3. In the Change in BP role field, enter Carrier (Maintained).

4. Save your entries.

Result
The vendors, customers, and carriers you have created in SAP ERP exist as business
partners and locations in EWM and can be used in the preconfigured business processes in
warehouse number W001.

Checking Handling Unit Types

You can use this procedure to check the handling unit (HU) types and HU type groups used in
the preconfigured business processes in warehouse number W001.

HU types are used to describe the spatial appearance of a handling unit, and thus to find the
optimum storage bins, or to check whether a handling unit can be stored in a storage bin.

Additionally, you may group the HU types into warehouse-specific HU type groups. By
assigning the HU type groups to the resource types, for example, you are able to control
which resource is able to handle which HUs within the resource management.

HU types are independent from the warehouse number. This means they are valid for
all warehouse numbers in the client.

This procedure is an optional step in the configuration of master data in warehouse

Creating Palletization and Packaging Data

You use this procedure to create palletization and packaging data for the products. In
warehouse number W001, you define palletization and packaging data using the following
methods:

Alternative units of measure for products (without HU)

A combination of alternative units of measure for products and packaging


specifications for standard HU types (with HU)

Packaging specifications for products (with or without HU)

Packaging specification for pick-handling units

You can create packaging specifications for products, for standard HU types, and for pick-
handling units (HUs). The packaging specifications for products are related to the units of
measure (UoM) defined for the products. In warehouse W001 the units of measure used for
small and medium parts are EA (each), CAR (carton), and PAL (pallet), the units of measure
used for large parts are EA and PAL. The packaging specifications for standard HU types and
for pick-HUs consist primarily of a packaging material (for example, europallet, wire basket, or
carton), as well as an HU type and the HU relevance flag.

Work steps and auxiliary packaging materials are not used in the packaging
specifications for the preconfigured business processes of warehouse number W001.

In warehouse number W001, palletization and packaging data is used for the following
functions:

Palletization and setting of alternative UoM in an inbound process without HU

For this function you use either alternative units of measure, for example, for small
parts, or packaging specifications for products, for example, large parts.

In the Inbound Process Without Packing Information (Manual GR) [External] and
Inbound Process Without Packing Information (Manual WT) [External], product
PROD-S01 is packed in 900 EA or 18 CAR per pallet. You receive 36 cartons on 2
pallets from your vendor. Based on the alternative units of measure defined for the
product, the system automatically creates two putaway warehouse tasks (in the case
of automatic warehouse task creation upon goods receipt) or proposes to create two
putaway warehouse tasks (in the case of manual warehouse task creation). In the
warehouse task, the alternative unit of measure is PAL. In the quant data in the
source bin and in the destination bin in storage type T020, the alternative unit of
measure is CAR, as this is the preferred unit of measure.

In the Inbound Process Without Packing Information (Manual GR) [External] and
Inbound Process Without Packing Information (Manual WT) [External], product
PROD-L01 is packed in 4 EA per pallet. You receive 8 EA from your vendor. Based on
the packaging specification defined for the product, the system automatically creates
two putaway warehouse tasks (in the case of automatic warehouse task creation

Configuration of Warehouse Structure and Master Data for SAP EWM 71


SAP Library

upon goods receipt) or proposes to create two putaway warehouse tasks (in the case
of manual warehouse task creation). In the warehouse task and in the quant data in
the destination bin in storage type T020, the alternative unit of measure is PAL and
the HU type is E1 (europallet).

Proposal of packaging material at the packing station in an inbound process with HU

For this function, you use either packaging specifications for products, for example,
product PROD-M01, or a combination of alternative units of measure for the products
and packaging specifications for standard HU types, for example, PROD-M11.

The packaging specification for standard HU types is used in this function


only. The advantage of this type of packaging specification is that you do
not have to create packaging specifications for each product.

In the Inbound Process with Repacking for Putaway [External], product PROD-M01 is
packed in 48 EA or 12 CAR per pallet. You receive 96 EA from your vendor. Based on
the packaging specification defined for the product, the system proposes to build two
HUs at the inbound packing station, each with 48 EA in packaging material
EUROPALLET. In the warehouse task and in the HU data the alternative unit of
measure is PAL and the HU type is E1 (europallet).

In the Inbound Process with Repacking for Putaway [External], product PROD-M11 is
packed in the same way as PROD-M01, but you do not define a packaging
specification for the product. Instead, you use a packaging specification for the
standard HU type. The system proposes to build two HUs at the inbound packing
station, each with 12 CAR, in packaging material EUROPALLET. The quantity of 12
CAR is proposed from the alternative units of measure defined for the product; the
packaging material EUROPALLET and the HU type E1 are proposed from the
packaging specification for standard HU types. In the quant data in the destination bin
in storage type T020, the alternative unit of measure is CAR, as this is the preferred
unit of measure

Determination of alternative UoM for picking warehouse tasks without HUs

For this function you use either alternative units of measure or packaging
specifications for products.

In the business process Automatic Replenishment [External], the warehouse worker


should pick one carton from the source bin for product PROD-S01. In the source bin
in storage type T020, the quant has a quantity of 18 CAR (equal to 900 EA). As the
quant in the source bin is managed in cartons, the system creates a replenishment
warehouse task of 1 CAR (equal to 50 EA) for the movement of the product from
storage type T020 to storage type T051. In the warehouse task, the alternative unit of
measure is CAR. In the quant data in the destination bin in storage type T051, the
alternative unit of measure is EA, as the destination storage type is set up to store the
quants in base unit of measure only.

Configuration of Warehouse Structure and Master Data for SAP EWM 72


SAP Library

In the business process Automatic Replenishment [External], the warehouse worker


should pick one pallet from the source bin for product PROD-L01. Based on the
packaging specifications defined for the product, the system creates a replenishment
warehouse task of 1 PAL (equal to 4 EA) for the movement of the product from
storage type T050 to storage type T051. In the warehouse task, the alternative unit of
measure is PAL, and the HU type is E1 (europallet). In the quant data in the
destination bin in storage type T051, the alternative unit of measure is EA, as the
destination storage type is set up to store the quants in base unit of measure only.

Determination of packaging material for pick-HUs in outbound processes

For this function you use packaging specifications for pick-HUs.

In the Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging, and Loading
[External], the warehouse worker picks cartons (small and medium parts) or eaches
(large parts) and puts them into a wire basket (equal to pick-HU). In the Outbound
Process Using Pick-HUs as Shipping HUs [External], the warehouse worker picks
eaches and puts them into a small, medium, or large carton (equal to pick-HU).
Depending on the packaging specification defined for the packaging profile used in
the process and on the weight/volume of the products to pick, the system creates a
pick-HU with packaging material WIRE_BASKET, EUROPALLET, CARTON_S,
CARTON_M, or CARTON_L.

A packaging specification can only be used in a process if the following prerequisites are met:

A determination procedure is assigned to the function in the warehouse

A condition type is assigned to the determination procedure in the system

The packaging specification contains a condition record for the condition type
assigned to the procedure

When you use the same packaging specification for several functions, you create several
condition records for the packaging specification.

The packaging specification settings and the packaging specifications themselves are
not warehouse-dependent. When you create the condition record for a packaging
specification, you enter the supply chain unit of the warehouse, thus making the
packaging specification valid in your warehouse.

You can reduce the number of packaging specifications for products by creating a
packaging specification for one product and entering this product as the reference
product in the product master data (packaging data) of all similar products. However,
you still have to create the condition records for each product.

Prerequisites
You have created the work centers, products, packaging materials, and HU types.

Procedure
1. Check the number ranges for packaging specifications and element groups in the
following way:

1. In Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management, choose Master


Data Packaging Specification Define Number Range for Packaging
Specification .

2. Choose Display Intervals.

3. Check that the following number ranges are defined as internal number
ranges:

Number Range Used For

01 Work steps (not used in the preconfigured business processes)

02 Packaging specifications

03 Element groups

2. Check that the number range 03 is assigned to the element groups in Customizing
for Extended Warehouse Management under Master Data Packaging
Specification Define General Packaging Specification Parameters .

Element groups are created automatically when you maintain a packaging material in
a packaging specification. For this reason, you must assign a number range for the
element groups in the general parameters for packaging specifications.

3. Check the level types LT01 and LT02 in Customizing for Extended Warehouse
Management under Master Data Packaging Specification Maintain Structure of
Packaging Specification Define Level Type .

The packaging specifications in warehouse W001 contain one or two levels. For each
level you define a level type. Since one level might be a carton or a pallet, you do not
define any value proposals here. In subsequent steps you assign an element type
(PACK for packaging material) to the level type, the level type to a level set, and the
level set to a packaging specification group. You can also restrict the allowed
packaging material types for an element type.

Configuration of Warehouse Structure and Master Data for SAP EWM 81


SAP Library

In warehouse W001 the level types are defined as in the following table. The level
types do not contain any value proposal as it is assumed that you create packaging
specifications by copying an existing packaging specification.

Packaging Specification Level Level Element Allowed Packaging


Group Set Type Type Material Types

PG01 (one level) LS01 LT01 PACK PT01, PT03

PG02 (two levels) LS02 LT01 PACK PT01, PT03

LT02 PACK PT01, PT03

As an alternative you could define value proposals such as quantity classification or


HU type for each level. In this case you would need to define more level types, level
sets and packaging specification groups as in the following table:

Packaging Level Level Type Element Allowed Packaging


Specification Group Set Type Material Types

PG02 (EA-CAR-PAL) LS02 LT01 with Qty PACK PT01, PT03

HU type E1

PG03 (repack LS03 LT03 with HU type PACK PT01, PT03


inbound) E1

PG04 (pick-HU) LS04 LT04 w/o attributes PACK PT01, PT03

4. Check the element typesPACK and AUX in Customizing for Extended Warehouse
Management under Master Data Packaging Specification Maintain Structure of
Packaging Specification Define Element Type .

With the element types, you can distinguish main packaging materials and auxiliary
packaging materials. In the preconfigured business processes of warehouse W001,
only main packaging materials are used.

5. Check the level sets in Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management under
Master Data Packaging Specification Maintain Structure of Packaging
Specification Define Level Set .

With the level sets you combine level types and element types as described above. In
warehouse W001 we distinguish between packaging specifications with one level
(level set LS01) and packaging specifications with two levels (level set LS02).

Check that level sets LS01 and LS02 are defined and that level types and element
types are assigned to each level set as described in the first table in step 3.

6. Check the assignment of packaging material types PT01 and PT03 to element type
PACK in Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management under Master Data

Configuration of Warehouse Structure and Master Data for SAP EWM 82


SAP Library

Packaging Specification Maintain Structure of Packaging Specification Assign


Packaging Material Type to Element Type .

In Creating Packaging Materials [Page 67] you have checked the existence of the
packaging material type PT01 used in warehouse number W001. Here you check that
only packaging materials with packaging material type PT01 are allowed as main
packaging material in packaging specifications. For this purpose you check the
assignment of the packaging material type of the packaging material to the element
type used in the level set of the packaging specification group. If no packaging
material types are assigned to an element type, then all packaging materials are valid
in the level element.

This is an optional step in the creation of packaging specifications.

7. Check the packaging specification groups PG01 and PG02 in Customizing for
Extended Warehouse Management under Master Data Packaging Specification
Define Packaging Specification Group .

When you create a packaging specification, you must enter a packaging specification
group. It contains settings such as the level set and the number range for the
packaging specification. Furthermore, you define in a packaging specification group
whether a condition record must exist before a user can activate a packaging
specification.

Packaging Specification Description Number Level Act.

8. Check that the determination procedures are assigned to warehouse number W001 in
Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management under Master Data Define
Warehouse Number Control .

You must assign a determination procedure for each function on warehouse number
level. When executing this function, the system determines a packaging specification
by searching for a condition record of the condition type assigned to the procedure.

9. Create the packaging specifications for the products and the pick-HUs on the SAP
Easy Access screen for Extended Warehouse Management under Master Data
Packaging Specification Maintain Packaging Specification .

Create the packaging specifications for each product and pick-HU as described in the
overview tables. Enter the content and the level data. In the Determination field of the
packaging specification header, create the condition records used for the
determination of the packaging specification in the business processes.

You do not need to enter any weight, volume, or capacity data. They are filled
automatically upon saving.

Configuration of Warehouse Structure and Master Data for SAP EWM 83

To create a packaging specification for a new product, you can copy an


existing packaging specification, enter the number of the new product,
change the description of the packaging specification, and adapt the
target quantity for each level.

Creating Routes

You use this procedure to create routes used in the following business processes in
warehouse number W001:

Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging, and Loading [External]

Outbound Process Using Pick-HUs as Shipping HUs [External]

The route determination for outbound deliveries is based on the routing guide. The routing
guide works with the following:

Location master data defined for the warehouse and for the customers

Business partner master data defined for the carriers

In both outbound business processes the route determination and scheduling is done in SAP
Extended Warehouse Management (EWM).

The warehouse delivers goods to four customers situated in four different regions:

In the Outbound Process Using Waves, Pick-HUs, Packing, Staging, and Loading
you define four different routes to transport the goods from the warehouse to each
customer. Each route contains only one leg (from the warehouse to the customer)
and departs once a week at a predefined time. The goods are transported by truck by
a carrier (CARR001).

In the Outbound Process Using Pick-HUs as Shipping HUs you define a single route
for the overnight delivery of small quantities to the four customers in one transport.
The route contains four legs (from the warehouse to first customer, from the first to
the second customer, and so on) and departs daily at 18:00. The goods are
transported by van.

Prerequisites
For the Outbound Process Using Pick-HUs as Shipping HUs you have maintained
geocoordinates for the regions of the customers in Customizing for SAP NetWeaver
under General Settings Set Geocoding Process Geographical Data for Countries
and Regions . The geocoordinates (longitude and latitude) of the region are copied
automatically to the location master data of the plant and of the customers during CIF
transfer and are used for the distance and travel time calculation.

You have maintained address data including a region for the customers and the plant
in SAP ERP and they are contained in the location master data in EWM, for example,
in the location master data PLPL01 (plant PL01) and CUCUST001 (customer
CUST001).

You have assigned the supply chain unit of the plant (for example, PLPL01) to the
warehouse.

You have defined the means of transport used in the Inbound Process with
Repacking for Putaway and in the Outbound Process Using Wave Pick-HU, Packing,
Staging, and Loading to create transportation units. For more information, see
Checking Means of Transport [Page 63].

Procedure
1. Check the activation of the routing guide in the current client in Customizing for SCM
Basis under Routing Guide General Settings for Route Determination .

Check that the Activate RG checkbox is selected. A cost profile in not required in the
outbound business processes.

2. Check definition of request types for routing guide in Customizing for SCM Basis
under Routing Guide Define Request Types for Routing Guide .

In the outbound business processes a different route determination is defined for


each outbound delivery order type. As an alternative, you can define a different route
determination for each shipping condition.

In case of route determination depending on the outbound delivery order type, you
must define a routing guide request type for each outbound delivery order type. The
routing guide request type must be identical with the outbound delivery order type.

Request Type Used in Business Processes

OUTS Outbound Process Using Pick-HUs as Shipping HUs

OUTB Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging, and Loading

3. Check the transportation zone hierarchy structure. For the route determination it is
necessary to define a transportation zone hierarchy structure and a transportation
zone hierarchy.

5. Check the activation of route determination for the following outbound deliveries in
Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management under Goods Issue Process
Outbound Delivery Route Determination Activate or Deactivate Route
Determination .

In addition to the activation of the routing guide on client level, the route determination
must be activated for outbound deliveries. In the outbound business processes the
route determination is activated in warehouse W001 for each outbound delivery order
type.

For more information, see the documentation of this Customizing activity in the
system.

6. Check that scheduling within route determination for your warehouse, document type,
and document category is defined.

In the outbound business processes most customer orders should be delivered with
the next possible route departure. Therefore the delivery date is usually todays date
and EWM executes a forward scheduling based on todays date. EWM executes only
a backward scheduling in case a customer specifies a requested delivery date in the

Configuration of Warehouse Structure and Master Data for SAP EWM 87


SAP Library

future. As a result of scheduling, the planned date/time of departure from yard and
the planned delivery date/time are changed. Planned picking, loading, and goods
issue (GI) dates coming from ERP are not taken into account in the scheduling.

Customer CUST004 orders some goods on Monday. The customer does not wish an
overnight delivery. The carrier delivers goods to this customer every Friday morning.
As a result of the forward scheduling, the delivery date is automatically changed to
Friday morning and the planned date of departure from yard is changed to Thursday
afternoon.

In this Customizing activity you define if a backward or forward scheduling is done


and which dates are taken into account in the scheduling and which dates/times are
changed as a result of the scheduling.

For more information, see the documentation of this Customizing activity in the
system.

1. In Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management, choose Goods

3. Select the document type OUTB.

4. In the Dialog Structure choose Date/Time Types.

5. Check that the following entries exist:

Date/Time Type

TDELIVERY

TOUTYARD

6. Repeat steps 24 for document type OUTS.

7. Assign departure calendar for route scheduling to supply chain unit.

In this step you create the five departure calendars used in the outbound business
processes and assign them to the supply chain unit of the warehouse. In the route

Configuration of Warehouse Structure and Master Data for SAP EWM 88

definition, you can only use departure calendars assigned to the start location (that is,
supply chain unit of the warehouse).

1. On the SAP Easy Access screen for Extended Warehouse Management,


choose Master Data Shipping and Receiving Route Determination
Assign Calendar to Supply Chain Unit .

2. Enter a supply chain unit, for example, PLPL01 and then choose Assign.

3. In the field Departure Cal., enter DAILY1800 and then choose Create.

4. On the Header Data tab page, enter the following data:

Description Years in the Past Years in the Future Time Zone Calendar

5 18:00:00 18:00:01

6. Choose Calculate Periods and then save the calendar.

7. Go back to the SCU Calendar Assignment screen and save the assignment
of the calendar to the supply chain unit.

8. Repeat the steps for creation and assignment of the following calendars:

MON1600 (weekday 1, time from 16:00:00 to 16:00:01)

TUE1600 (weekday 2, time from 16:00:00 to 16:00:01)

WED1600 (weekday 3, time from 16:00:00 to 16:00:01)

THU1800 (weekday 4, time from 18:00:00 to 18:00:01)

8. Create transportation lanes.

The transportation lanes are used in the Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU,
Packing, Staging, and Loading to define the transportation distance, the
transportation duration, and the additional retention time between a start location (for
example, warehouse), and a destination location (for example, customer) for a
specific means of transport (for example, truck). This data is used in the scheduling
within route determination.

The additional retention time is added to the transportation duration to calculate a


realistic delivery date/time at the customer. For example, a carrier leaving the
warehouse in the afternoon will not deliver the goods to the customer in the middle of
the night but in the morning of the next day.

Configuration of Warehouse Structure and Master Data for SAP EWM 89


SAP Library

The Outbound Process Using Pick-HUs as Shipping HUs does not use transportation
lanes. In this business process, the scheduling uses the average speed of the means
of transport and the geocoordinates of the starting location and the destination
location of each leg within the route.

1. On the SAP Easy Access screen for Extended Warehouse Management,


choose Master Data Shipping and Receiving Route Determination
Transportation Lane .

2. Enter the following data and choose Create:

9. Create carrier profile.

In the Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging, and Loading you
assign a carrier to the transportation unit used to deliver the goods to the customer.
The carrier must be assigned to the first leg of the route. For this, you must first
create a carrier profile for the carrier. In this step you define only the header data for
the carrier profile. The system automatically fills the transportation data upon
assignment of the carrier to a leg.

This step is not needed for the Outbound Process Using Pick-HUs as Shipping HUs.

1. On the SAP Easy Access screen for Extended Warehouse Management,


choose Master Data Shipping and Receiving Route Determination
Carrier Profile .

2. Create a carrier profile for carrier CARR001. You do not need to enter any
data beside the business partner number of the carrier.

Configuration of Warehouse Structure and Master Data for SAP EWM 90


SAP Library

10. Create route W001_OUTS for the Outbound Process Using Pick-HUs as Shipping
HUs.

For this business process you define a route with four legs for means of transport
MTR1 (van). The route departs every day at 18:00. The route has a lead time of 3
hours. This means that an outbound delivery must be created at least 3 hours before
route departure, otherwise it is assigned to the next route departure.

1. On the SAP Easy Access screen for Extended Warehouse Management,


choose Master Data Shipping and Receiving Route Determination
Maintain Route .

2. Create the following entry:

Route Description Validity From Validity (To)

W001_OUTS Route W001_OUTS 01.01.2010 31.12.2020

3. Create the following legs:

Leg Description Starting Destination Means of


Location Location Transport

L_W001_OUTS_01 Leg PLPL01 CUCUST001 MTR1


L_W001_OUTS_01

L_W001_OUTS_02 Leg CUCUST001 CUCUST002 MTR1

L_W001_OUTS_03

L_W001_OUTS_04 Leg CUCUST003 CUCUST004 MTR1


L_W001_OUTS_04

Alternatively, you can create a route with starting location PLPL01,


destination location CUCUST004, and a stop for each customer in
between.

4. Create an entry for request type OUTS (delivery order type used in this
process).

5. Create a lead time of 3 hours for request type OUTS.

6. Assign departure calendar DAILY1800 to request type OUTS for the first leg
of the route.

7. Save the route.

11. Create routes for the Outbound Process Using Wave, Pick-HU, Packing, Staging, and
Loading.

For this process you define for each customer a route with one leg for means of
transport MTR2 (truck). Proceed as described in the previous step using the following
data:

For replenishment, the bin access type from source and destination bin
is different but the resource is the same. Therefore, the bin access type
is not used for the queue determination of replenishment warehouse
tasks. For picking and scrapping, the source bin access type is used and
therefore the entry makes sense including the BAT. For putaway, the
destination bin access type is used and therefore the entry makes sense
including the BAT.

4. Check the following queue access sequences:

Procedure
1. Check the resource types.

You define the resource types to create a grouping of resources with similar technical
or physical qualifications. The resource type determines the preferences of its
constituent resources regarding bin access type and handling unit (HU) type group.

1. In the Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management, choose Cross


Process Settings Resource Management Define Resource Types .

2. Check the following definition of resource types:

Warehouse Number Resource Type Description

W001 RT01 Forklift Truck

W001 RT02 High Level Order Picker
