The number of proposed storage types for putaways and stock removals was limited up to now to 10. Beginning with Release 4.0, it is now possible to define up to 30 proposed storage types in Customizing. The number of storage types on the preparation screen for stock removal has been increased only to 15, for space reasons. You can maintain the other 15 by pressing a push-button in a dialog box. You can also set the storage types using the Customer Exit for the Storage Type Search for stock removal.

The number of storage unit types allowed for a storage type has been increased from 10 to 30.

The number ofstorage bin types allowed for a storage unit type has been increased from 10 to 30.

The number of storage sections in which goods can be stored or in which you search for a bin has been increased from 10 to 30.

Up to now, a maximum of 14 items were managed in a bin with strategy P. As of Release 4.0, up to 99 items can be managed in a bin.

Further notes

We do not recommend using the new fields too much, for performance reasons. If, for example, you have a storage type with the storage section check and the SUT check, and the thirtieth storage bin type in the thirtieth storage section is found by the system, this means this is the nine-hundreth access to the index of empty bins.
