What is the difference between TM7.0 and SCM7.0?
I have heard that they have some relationship.
Could you gurus explain in detail how are they related to each other: differences and similarities.
Thanks! Pints guaranteed.

hopefully I can help you.
SAP Transportation Management 7.0 belongs to the SAP Business Suite Supply Chain Management 7.0. You can use SAP TM 7.0 in two different ways: First, you can use SAP TM 7.0 as stand-alone System without any other SAP Products. Second, you can use SAP TM 7.0 in connection to SAP ERP and also SAP ERP LES. So you can perform the planning, transportation service provider selection, tendering and subcontracting and continuous movements in SAP TM without changing any processes in SAP ERP (Integration is done with IDocs). Actually, there are several other scenario possible to use SAP TM in SAP SCM processes for Transportation Management especially execution.
Futhermore, SAP Transportation Management 7.0 is based on SCM Basis, SAP NetWeaver and use the SCM Optimizer. In addition, SAP TM is delivered with SAP Event Management, which is also a part of SAP SCM.
