For the physical inventory, your aim is to have completely inventoried all storage bins and stock at the end of the physical inventory year. You can display the status of this completeness (inventory progress) in the warehouse management monitor, and at the following levels:

  • Storage-bin-related
  • Product-related
  • For cycle counting


Product-Related Physical Inventory Progress

A product is completely inventoried if you have counted all stock of this product per physical inventory area and party entitled to dispose. Here also, the completeness is retained.

When you post the physical inventory document, the system performs a completeness check. To save time and ease the workload on the system, you can also schedule this completeness check as a background job that the system can perform nightly, for example.

To avoid goods movements during the physical inventory, we recommend you count the entire stock for each physical inventory area within a short space of time, or that you lock it during the physical inventory. The following example shows the effect goods movements have on how the completeness check behaves.

Product X is located in physical inventory M and in storage bins A, B and C.
Physical Inventory Without Movements
For each physical inventory document, the system checks whether it is the last open physical inventory document. If it is the last open physical inventory document, the system sets the completeness. If you first count A, then B, and finally C, the system sets the completeness when you have counted C. If you then move stock from B to D, for example, this does not affect the completeness since this is retained.
Physical Inventory With Movements
After you have counted A and B, you move the product from A to D. If you then want to count C, the system identifies that the product is located in B, C and D, meaning the physical inventory document for C is not the last open physical inventory document. For this reason, it does not set completeness.

For product-related physical inventory progress, storage-bin-related documents are also counted. However, the reverse is not true.

In the above example, if you perform a storage-bin-related physical inventory in A but a product-related physical inventory in B and C, then all products are completely inventoried in the product-related physical inventory progress, because A is counted too. For the storage-bin-related physical inventory progress, the storage bins are not completely inventoried since B and C are not counted along with A.

For the system to be able to make a statement about the completeness, stock of the product in question must exist in at least one storage bin in the warehouse. If the product does not exist in a physical inventory area (zero stock), the system does not make statement for this physical inventory area (it does not make an entry). If the product exists in every physical inventory area apart from this one and was completely inventoried, the entire warehouse is completely inventoried.

Product-related physical inventory progress always relates to one physical inventory period, such as a physical inventory year.

Physical Inventory Progress for Cycle Counting

Physical inventory progress for cycle counting is the same as that for product-related physical inventory progress, apart from the fact that it relates to the interval in which you count the product and not the physical inventory period. For example, if you have defined for product A that you have to count it once every month, you have to recount it every month for it to then be completely inventoried at the end of the month. However, the first count is enough to satisfy legal requirements.


If you want to perform the completeness check online (post physical inventory document), you have to set the CompCheck (Completeness Check Online/Offline (Report) indicator.

For more information, see the Implementation Guide (IMG) for SCM Basis under Physical Inventory ->Basic Settings ->Define Physical Inventory Area.

The stock for the product must be available in the system.



Warehouse number (mandatory), activity area, product, party entitled to dispose (mandatory)

Standard Variants


The results list displays whether:

  • a product is already complete (X) or incomplete ( ) in a particular activity area
  • the completeness indicator can be set for a product in an activity area, or whether it is set (N) if the activity area was not yet complete
  • no stock exists for a product in an activity area


You can execute the report in simulation mode. In this simulation, the system determines the completeness but does not update it. Completeness can be determined or set for the current period (physical inventory year) or for the previous period (physical inventory year). You can also control whether to set completeness for products that have no stock in the warehouse for party entitled to dispose.

To display the physical inventory progress, on the launchpad, choose Extended Warehouse Management->Monitoring ->Warehouse Management Monitor, and in the warehouse management monitor choose Physical Inventory ->InvProgress.
