Intralogistics under SAP S/4HANAwith SAP Stock Room Management

Intralogistics under SAP S/4HANAwith SAP Stock Room Management

Stock Room Management is the new SAP solution for simple, manual warehouse logistics processes that replaces the former SAP LES/WM (also called SAP WM) system in SAP S/4HANA. This enables you to also map warehouse Management (WM) processes to a large extent with the new ERP S/4HANA system.

With more than 25 years of logistics experience and expertise, FIS supports you throughout the complete implementation of SAP Stock Room Management for small and medium-sized warehouses with manual processes. Many years of know-how in the SAP environment, especially with SAP ERP, enables the IT specialists at FIS to implement a reliably integrated supply chain across all upstream and downstream processes in your company.

  • Holistic process consulting and integration by FIS ensures the consistent supply chain

Service scope of Stock Room Management

Stock Room Management is primarily intended for existing customers with SAP WM implementations whose warehouse processes are already fully covered by this software and who do not require any updates or new developments (such as Fiori apps). The transition to the future-proof SAP Embedded EWM system under S/4HANA is therefore easier. Stock Room Management can therefore be an interim solution and intermediate step on the way to warehouse digitization.

It is a classic WM system with a limited range of functions. Some of the previously included functions, such as Cross Docking (WM-CD), Yard Management (WM-YM) or Value-Added Services (WM-VAS), can no longer be used in S/4HANA as from 2026.

This means that a simple, manual small parts warehouse can still be comprehensively mapped with Stock Room Management (for example, transfer orders for all manual warehouse movements including mobile processing).

The FIS/smw SAP optimization can be used as a supplement to Stock Room Management and makes working even more efficient and easier. The solution consists of additional features for subareas of warehouse logistics processes that can be used separately. This ensures that you can optimally implement your individual logistics requirements, such as mobile warehouse processes.

FAQ on SAP STOCK ROOM MANAGEMENT

SAP Stock Room Management is an SAP logistics software solution for simple, manual warehouse logistics processes and replaces SAP LES/WM (also called SAP WM) in SAP S/4HANA. Consequently, SAP Stock Room Management can also be used to map most of the SAP WM processes in the new S/4HANA ERP system. Embedded EWM, which is already included in the SAP S/4HANA core, is an alternative to Stock Room Management and represents the recommended SAP solution. 

  • Full integration into the SAP S/4HANA ERP system ensures consistent document flows 
  • Future-proof warehouse logistics through consistent integration scenarios when migrating to SAP EWM Basic or Advanced 
  • Individual developments and process mappings enable tailored solutions for your specific warehouse requirements 

With more than 25 years of SAP warehouse logistics experience, FIS supports you in the new implementation of SAP Stock Room Management and in the transition from SAP LES/WM to SAP Stock Room Management or SAP EWM. Field-tested additional functions by FIS complement the SAP standard version of Stock Room Management and therefore ensure more efficiency in your processes (e.g. mapping of mobile business processes). Holistic process consulting and integration by FIS ensures a consistent supply chain. 

SAP Stock Room Management is an alternative to SAP WM to use its functions for small and medium-sized warehouses even under SAP S/4HANA. It includes almost all SAP WM functions, with the exception of 

  • Task & Resource Management (WM-TRM) 
  • Value Added Services (WM-VAS) or “Logistische Zusatzleistungen” (Value-Added Services) (LZL) 
  • Cross Docking (WM-CD) 
  • Yard Management (WM-YM) 
  • Wave Management (Picking Waves; WM-TFM-CP) 
  • Local LES/WM (WM-DWM) 
  • LSR Interface (WM-LSR) 

The target group is particularly SAP customers who already use SAP WM and would like to continue using the solution under SAP S/4HANA – without extended functions or further development. SAP Stock Room Management can therefore be an alternative to the much more comprehensive SAP EWM solution. 

Stock Room Management has been available since the S/4HANA 1909 release. It is a license-related delimitation since the functions are already included in the current SAP WM version. This means that also new customers can use Stock Room Management. However, it is doubtful whether this variant makes strategic sense. In future, the recommended software solution for new customers is SAP EWM (embedded). 

SAP Stock Room Management is less suitable as soon as a company requires more comprehensive functions. Features such as the integration of automated storage techniques and the use of Fiori apps cannot be mapped by SAP Stock Room Management for instance. This requires the implementation of the SAP EWM intralogistics software, either as embedded system or locally as independent system.
