How to define storage locations in SAP MM

Storage location is a place where inventories are physically kept within a plant. You have to define at least one storage location for a plant. In material management module (MM module) storage location is the lowest point.

You can define it by using transaction code OX09 or following path;

SPRO > Enterprise structure > Definition > Material Management > Maintain Storage Locations

Enter the plant number for which you want to create it and press new entries. Enter a number and description. By selecting it you need to double click on “address of storage location” to enter its address.

Save it 

Automatic creation

SPRO > Material Management > Inventory Management and physical inventory > goods receipt > create storage location automatically

You need to set automatic creation for the plants. Just tick the options and save it. In the same way you can also create it for movement types.
