Warehouse Management Restrictions

Hi Experts,

Regarding to the direct integration between Inventory Management and Warehouse Management, there's lack of restriction in warehouse management module for instance if we received materials from PO in MIGO then a material document will be posted in inventory level and open transfer requirement will be created in warehouse level, then we can transfer the same material or issue it to customer/cost center/ production in Inventory Management level without creating a transfer order for the open transfer requirement and without even a warning or error message appear to the user in Inventory Management level when he do that without completing WM's step.

Another example for data inconsistency between WM and IM, if we allocated material to sales order stock then material document will be posted in IM and an open posting change notice will be created in WM, then we can issue the same material in IM level without the need of completing posting change in WM level and if we issued this material before completing WM step "create TO for open PC" this will lead us to a big problem because materials already issued and it doesn't exist in our system then open posting change can't be closed and it'll be still open.

So Please explain how the two modules are integrated While there're no restrictions for performing WM step before doing further steps in Inventory Management.

Finally how we can restrict or force the user to perform Warehouse Management's steps before going to further Inventory Management's steps. Thanks
