SAP EWM Introduction • The basic functions of the Warehouse are to provide solution for receiving, storage and shipping. The involved basic processes are always incoming and outgoing materials, goods receipt and goods issue, procurement and distribution • But recently the warehouses are evolved to facilitate full scale, high volume and flow through distribution operations aiming to hold less inventory and still providing goods to customers much faster than earlier with more precise timing • Extended Warehouse Management was introduced in October, 2006. Although it is not a replacement for the SAP standard Warehouse Management application, it represents a new generation of SAP warehouse management software
Benefits of EWM • SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM) offers you flexible, automated support for processing various goods movements and for managing stocks in your warehouse complex. • The system supports planned and efficient processing of all logistics activities in your warehouse. It is the most advanced and flexible of the warehouse solutions offered by SAP • EWM is designed for the execution of complex supply chain networks. It is recommended for warehouses or distribution centerswith high volume in number of articles or number of parts to be moved, vast product differences (size, weight, model year, serial numbers, country of origin, batch and valuation), complex cross docking requirements and order fulfillmentprocesses, detailed packaging and shipping logistics.
SAP WM Solutions • The SAP ERP warehouse management system remains a viable alternative for many warehouses • The introduction of the SAP Extended Warehouse Management System does not mean that it replaces the SAP WM system. It just means that there is now an additional alternative for those warehouses that require the functionality provided by EWM • An SAP customer can implement the SAP WM system for some warehouses and EWM for other warehouses in its enterprise • One of the main differences between the SAP WM system and the SAP EWM system is that functionally, the WM system in more inward focused
SCM EWM • In 2005, SAP announced the availability of its Service Parts Management (SPM) System. Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) was an integral component of this system. However, today, EWM is considered a standalone application that can be used in any warehousing environment and it does not require any connection to SPM • •Since it's introduction, SAP has continuously enhanced EWM . In August, 2007, EWM was upgraded with a number of functional additions and with the LaborManagement component. This release is called EWM 2007 • •From ERP point of view, EWM is a decentralized WM solution. • •This means that inbound and outbound deliveries are mandatory. They are created in the ERP system and replicated to a SCM system with EWM. Besides the main functionality as inventory management on storage bin level, storage bin determination for incoming goods and stock removal for outgoing goods, stock transfers and physical inventory, various additional functionalities are possible to optimize the warehouse management
Data Transfer between ERP & EWM • For the communication between the ERP system and the EWM system (wetherthis is part of a bigger SCM system, a standalone system, or an add-on) two different functions are used. • •Master data, like material master, customers, and vendors, which are centrally maintained in the ERP system, are transferred to the EWM system through the Core Interface (CIF). The CIF is the standard and long proven interface solution for the SAP SCM system and SAP Advanced Planning and Optimization, so it was simply reused for the EWM integration. The master data is only transferred from ERP to EWM; there is no communication back via CIF. • •For communicating delivery information between the systems, a separate distribution model, which uses queued remote function calls (qRFCs), is set up. This distribution model exists already in SAP EWM. You have to create it in customizing in ERP for every warehouse number you activate as administrated by SAP EWM.
