Detailed Process Description
The SAP Best Practices packages cover Lean Warehouse Management (Lean WM) functionalities for processing goods receipts and goods issues (inventory management takes place solely at storage location level not at storage bin level).
Using Lean WM, you process the warehouse movements in basically the same way as if using the Warehouse Management System: you work with deliveries, and you create transfer orders for these deliveries. These transfer orders serve as pick lists.
