In the future, SAP EWM will be based on S/4HANA, the advanced ERP system based on the centralized SAP HANA real-time database. This creates a standard data basis for all persons involved and reliable decisions can be made quickly.
The SAP EWM system focuses on the system mapping of the following warehouse logistics core processes:
- Goods receipt: inbound delivery and putaway
- Warehouse and inventory management: stockholding
- Goods issue: from picking and packing to outbound delivery
SAP EWM fulfills the highest requirements of warehouse automation with regard to functional scope and controllable complexity. The software enables, for instance, the implementation of complex conveyor systems, stacker control systems or automatic small parts storage areas (SPSA) within intralogistics. Yet, EWM is easy to use due to the user-friendly and role-based SAP Fiori user interface. Simple warehouse structures can also be mapped without any problems using SAP EWM.
