Please go trough these carefully, hopefully you will find answer for your question:

If you do no wish to update stocks in your fixed bin warehouse at storage bin level, Lean WM provides you with the option of using the advantages of warehouse management through transfer orders in the same way as warehouse management using the WMS.

If you are already using the standard WM system, we recommend that you implement Lean WM in a further warehouse where no updating of stocks at storage bin level is necessary. In this way, you ensure that the processes for warehouse management are uniform in all warehouses.

Since Lean WM does not update stocks at storage bin level, you can display the stock quantities solely in Inventory Management (IM) and not with the stock overview function in WM. Also, you cannot process possible stock differences that occur in the warehouse using Lean WM, only using Inventory Management (MM-IM):
