SAP Warehouse Management (SAP EWM) is a component of SAP Logistics Execution system (SAP LE) and deals with the following tasks:

  • Inventory management in randomly-organized and fixed-bin storage types
  • Processing all relevant movements and tasks in the warehouse, such as goods receipt, goods issue, movements within the warehouse.

The EWM application component is not installed as a stand-alone solution, but is integrated in all areas of the SAP business system (such as MM, SD, PP, QM, TM).

Based on the complexity of the warehouse operations and the business requirements, a [Lean EWM], or a standard EWM or a [Decentralized EWM] or an Extended EWM can be selected for implementation.
