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.
