Features

Since catch weight products have both a logistics unit of measure and a catch weight unit of measure, the following areas of Extended Warehouse Management are affected:

Integration with SAP ERP

For more information about the integration of EWM and SAP ERP, see Integration with Catch Weight .

Product Master

For more information about catch-weight-related enhancements of the product master and about the different units of measure in EWM, see Changes in the Product Master and Units of Measure .

EWM Processes

For more information about catch weight enhancements with respect to goods movements, warehouse tasks, handling units, and so on, see Effects on Processes in EWM .

Delivery

Physical Inventory

For more information about physical inventory, see Catch Weight in Physical Inventory .

Radio Frequency

In Extended Warehouse Management (EWM), you can also process catch weight products using mobile data entry devices.

In the RF transactions, the system automatically checks in the background whether the product is a catch weight product or not. If the product is catch-weight-relevant, the system displays a corresponding catch weight indicator in the RF transactions. After the logistics quantity has been entered, the system automatically opens an additional screen for entering the catch weight quantity.

This affects several different areas of the RF framework, such as deconsolidation, count entry, putaway, picking, packing, physical inventory, and ad hoc movements.

Quality Inspection

Warehouse Management Monitor

When catch weight products are evaluated in the warehouse management monitor, the quantity is displayed in the catch weight unit of measure in addition to the logistics unit of measure.
