Storage Locations



The delivering plant refers to the plant from which the goods are to be delivered to the customer, within a specific sales organization and distribution channel. The delivering plant is also used to calculate inventory. The plant may contain one or more storage locations. Storage location is a place where stock is kept physically.

The plant can be maintained in the following places:

  1. web store
  2. customer/product info record
  3. customer master record of the ship-to party
  4. material master record

Which delivering plant should be used to calculate inventory is defined according to priority as in the list above.

From this article you will learn how to configure delivering plants and storage locations for the Sana web store. If you set up a delivering plant and storage location for the Sana web store they will be used to calculate inventory, and those configured for customers and materials will be ignored.

In the main menu of the Sana add-on, click Webstore Configuration. Click Change Existing Webstore, then select your web store and click Continue. Expand the Products area. Use the Storage Locations table to set up the delivering plants and storage locations for the Sana web store.

The table below provides description of the fields in the Storage Location table.

Types of stock calculation

There are two types of stock calculation:

  • Available-to-promise (ATP)
  • Unrestricted

In the main menu of the Sana add-on, click Webstore Configuration. Click Change Existing Webstore, then select your webstore and click Continue. Expand the Products area.

In different projects sales managers want to show product availability (stock) the way that meets the requirements of their business.

If you use ATP stock calculation type, you can select different checking rules. The checking rule defines the checking procedure for ATP stock calculation, for example which receipts should be taken into account in the availability check. The A (SD order) checking rule is used by default, if no value is set.

 NOTE

Checking rules are available starting from Sana 9.3.1.

Using Unrestricted stock calculation type, you can show a quantity that is physically located in the warehouse and is not subject to any usage restrictions.

You can check stock amount using the Stock/Requirements List in SAP (MD04).
