How to Create Storage Location in SAP

What I s Storage locations in SAP

The storage location is the place where the materials are stored or it is the division of a plant into different areas so that the stock of materials can be kept there. It allows the differentiation of materials like raw material, semi-finished goods, and finished product within a plant.

For example, suppose we have a plant111 where we have created two storage locations B30 and  B40. Storage location B30 is used for the storage of raw materials and storage location B40 is used for the storage of finished products. It means within a plant111 different products or different materials are stored at different storage locations.

A plant can have multiple storage locations depending on the type of the product but at least one storage location is a must for a plant. The storage location is the four-digit alphanumeric key.
