Rarely material flow is equal for all products and all areas within a warehouse. Often multiple people and resources are involved in transportation. Products must be partially deconsolidated in goods receipt or consolidated in goods issue processes. To control the material flow through different stations and allow transportation from ressource to ressource EWM has integrated Storage Control.
With Storage Control paths stock placement and stock removal can be specified process-oriented or layout-oriented over multiple stations by EWM. So processes like counting or deconsolidation at good receipt or packaging at goods issue can be carried out automatically. Storage Control enables material flow over multiple intermediate storage types.
