Implementing KANBAN-WM

Hi Gurus,

 

we are implementing KANBAN with WM for VERP materials in the pharmacology factory. We actived the replenishment strategy 0006 (for WM) and created a supply area, but SAP didn´t let us use the PK01 to create a new control cycle. System obligated us to inform the storing position for that material/plant/supply area.

 

Nevertheless, we also could´n use the PLK1 because in that transaction we could´n find where fulfill the replenishment strategy. Our solution was to create a new storage location (without WM) and then create all the KANBAN data for this new stor. loc. and then we trigger the NT/OT for the stor. loc. with WM.

 

My questions are:

 

1. There any other way to active Event-driven KANBAN-WM using the storage location with WM?

 

2. What is this storing position field in the PK01 and how can I fill it correctly?

 

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

 

Felipe Tavares

    Dear Felipe,

     

    Answers to your question:

    .1. There any other way to active Event-driven KANBAN-WM using the storage location with WM?

    -


    > It is easily possible to have a event driven KANBAN u2013WM using the storage location with WM.

    The perquisites are

    1.     Storage location should be WM managed.

    2.     Define the supply are u2013 transaction PK05- new entries-enter plant-supply area( enter as per your business requirement)-storage location- responsible to MRP controller u2013 automatic unloading point / unloading point.- Maintained the address for supply area.

    3.     Define the strategy in a given path as per your business requirement u2013 you have to choose proper movement type.

    4.     SPRO-production-KANBAN-Replenishment strategy-define in-house production strategy.

    5.     SPRO-production-KANBAN-Replenishment strategy-define external procurement strategy.

    6.     SPRO-production-KANBAN-Replenishment strategy-define stock transfer strategy.

    7.     PK01-create control cycle u2013use the production supply area/plant/storage location/ assign any one of the above strategy as per your requirement.

     

    2. What is this storing position field in the PK01 and how can I fill it correctly?

    > Storage position field is area where you are going to issue a material u2013 like in automobile industry u2013 engine assembly area/ chassis assembly/ door assembly etc.

     

    Hope it will help to configure KANBAN process, if you have any further doubts pl write back , we are having KANBAN process for internal WH movements.

     

    Thanks

      Hi Ompra,

       

      thanks for your answer.

       

      this storage location is in WM? Where do I define it? because when I try to create a supply area for WM it always ask me to fill this field but any entry is accept.

       

      Thanks again,

        HI Felipe,

        I am not getting what exactly you want to ask, while creating supply area following things need to enter.

        1 . plant

        2.supply area u2013 enter whatever u want

        3.storage location : source

        4.responsible ( MRP controller)

        While creating control cycle : PK01

        1.     material

        2.     plant

        3.     supply area ( which is defined in a earlier step)

        4.     IN STOCK TRANSFER Tab- stock transfer details ( spro-production-replenishment strategy)

        5.     Storage loc u2013 destination ( should be different then the source)

        Material should be extended to both storage loc.

        Pl let me know if required any further info.

        Thanx

        Om

          Hi Ompra,

           

          PK01, I insert Material, Plant and SUpply Area.

          Then it brings another fields. Right below Supply Area, it brings the field STORING POSITION. There´s no match code, and all the data I input there it shows an error message asking for this Storing Position. It´s a mandatory field and I don´t know what should I put in it.

           

          Regards,
