Overview

Uplatz offers comprehensive training on SAP EWM module. This is video-based online course (self-paced training). You will be awarded Course Completion Certificate at the end of the course.

SAP EWM (Extended Warehouse Management) is part of SAP Supply Chain Management and supports inventory management and movement of goods in warehouses. This multi-client warehouse management solution has been designed for large distribution centers with complex and highly automated processes.

Inventory management and goods movements are closely linked. A warehouse can be mapped in the system down to storage bin level. The affiliation of SAP EWM to SAP SCM has the advantage of a strong integration in supply chain planning, collaboration, and supply chain visibility.

SAP EWM meets the requirements of advanced warehouse logistics from simple and manual warehouses to highly complex warehouses. One of the outstanding features of SAP EWM is its high flexibility, that can be used to meet the numerous requirements of different warehouse types. Integrated material flow control and high scalability of this SAP module are genuine added values for companies. Due to continued development, EWM fulfils the most important criteria for flexibly meeting your business requirements in the future. The system is rounded off by excellent user convenience.

SAP EWM is a unified software solution by SAP for flexible, automated support for processing various goods movement and managing stock in the warehouse. EWM module supports users with planned and efficient processing of complex logistics processes. SAP EWM brings together maximum functionality and comprehensive process support for all types of warehouses, and is thus one of the most powerful software suites for warehouse management and control worldwide.

The principal components within SAP EWM (SAP Extended Warehouse Management) include warehouse management (SAP Extended Warehouse Management) and material flow control (SAP Material Flow System).

In complex warehouse and distribution centers the classic basic functionality of a warehouse management system is no longer sufficient – such as support of goods-in and goods-out, replenishment and inventory management. Additional functions supporting complex processes are required, such as cross-docking, returns processing, additional logistics services, and multi-customer warehouses. Also, mapping material flow components with direct link to the programmable logic controllers is becoming increasingly important. In addition, to counter the cost pressures, resource and labor management functionality is required.

The performance of SAP EWM goes beyond the existing and widely available SAP WM module. SAP EWM is part of SAP Supply Chain Management (SAP SCM) and supports inventory management and movement of goods in warehouses. The multi-client warehouse management solution was designed for large distribution centers with complex and highly automated processes. Inventory management and goods movements are closely linked. A warehouse can be mapped in the system down to storage bin level. The affiliation to SAP SCM has the advantage of a strong integration in supply chain planning, collaboration, and supply chain visibility.

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.

Uplatz provides in-depth training on SAP EWM module with detailed practical sessions and hands-on demonstration of industry scenarios on SAP EWM system.

How SAP EWM is different from SAP WM?

SAP EWM is a part of SAP Supply Chain Management like Warehouse Management System but provides more robust and advanced features to manage key activities in the Warehouse. SAP EWM is similar to SAP WM but it provides more features like picking, put away, RF framework, Warehouse structure and more flexible options to manage the warehouse functions.

You can create new elements like an activity area, resources, labor management and work centers in SAP EWM which were not available in WM.

SAP EWM provides more a robust solution to manage warehouse functions in an organization. It is also a part of SAP Supply Chain Management and also supports all the processes within logistics and supply chain.

Some of the key benefits of SAP EWM system are:

  • Extensive EWM functionalities that are scalable for any bearing size/type
  • Individual developments and specific process illustrations adapt to the requirements of your warehouse
  • Seamless integration of upstream and downstream business processes in S/4HANA or SAP ERP ECC 6.0
  • Integration scenarios along the entire supply chain possible
  • Different deployment options possible, whether Embedded (integrated), By-Side (decentralized) or Hybrid

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
