SAP EWM - Deconsolidation


The deconsolidation function can be used to divide handling units across different putaway handling units. This is required when the deconsolidate handling unit contains different products and these products has to be put away in different storage sections.

This is defined under consolidation groups for storage control.

Navigate to Extended Warehouse management → Goods Issue Process → Define Consolidation Group.

Consolidation Group

When a deconsolidation is defined in EWM, it is required for the following reasons in warehouse management −

  • The activity areas for the products within an HU are different.

  • The activity areas for the products within an HU are the same, but the consolidation groups are different.

  • The activity areas and consolidation groups for the products within an HU are the same, but the maximum number of warehouse tasks for the HU has been exceeded.

Deconsolidation Feature − When extended warehouse performs deconsolidation, a warehouse task is created for each handling unit item, which deconsolidation takes into account.
