SAP EWM – Pick Driven Replenishment / User based replenishment / Direct Replenishment.

At time of picking the stock for internal use, if WH operator do not find the sufficient /no stock in the source storage type (in Ideal replenishment process – planned, system usually create the replenishment warehouse task), the warehouse operator self-creates the replenishment task to pick the material from replenishment storage type to source storage type and refill the stock in source type. In Direct replenishment, the replenishment of stock is started during a bin denial when an exception code refers to the internal process code Replenishment. The system calculates the replenishment in accordance with the maximum and minimum quantity. Here it assumes that the quantity at the storage bin is zero. The system rounds down the replenishment quantity to a multiple of the minimum replenishment quantity.

Direct replenishment can be performed by the picker (picker-directed replenishment). In this case, a warehouse task is displayed for the replenishment as the next item to be processed in the picker’s warehouse order. As a prerequisite, the system must have found stock in the permitted storage types. Picker-directed replenishment is only possible in radio frequency scenarios.
