MM Configuration: Maintain Storage Location




Step by step SAP Material Management (MM) Configuration: Maintain Storage Location

A Storage Location is a storage area comprising warehouses in close proximity.

A Storage Location is represented by a plant-unique 4-digit alpha-numeric.

Material stocks can be differentiated, on a quantity basis, within one plant according to storage location.

Storage locations are always created for a plant.

It is possible to store material data specific to a storage location, such as storage bin.

Physical inventories are carried out at storage location level.


We can define Storage Location in a SAP R/3 client with T-code: SPRO / OX09.
