Dependent business function that you must additionally activate

Business Function LE, Extended Warehouse Management Integration LOG_LE_INTEGRATION

This business function enables you to use the SAP Extended Warehouse Management System in conjunction with the ERP system to administer the storage and staging of components and finished products. With the integration of EWM into the processes of production planning and control, you benefit from powerful EWM functions that enable you to optimize the flexibility and transparency of your warehouse.

By integrating SAP EWM with the PP processes, you can handle complete end-to-end processes with materials that are entirely or partly located at EWM-managed storage locations.

Through the use of EWM-managed warehouses, logistical processes become more transparent. For this reason, such integration facilitates better tracking of materials and better identification of weak points, thereby bringing an overall improvement in the supply chain or parts thereof.


SAP EWM is integrated in the following PP components:

  • Conventional manufacturing (production and process orders)

  • Kanban
