Delivery confirmation with EWM

Hello SCN,

I'm currently in the process of designing and planning a major upgrade to our warehouse infrastructure and management system. We are currently running an SAP WM module (for warehouse management duties), in conjunction with an SAP IM module (for consumption and tracking of the goods, once delivered from the warehouse).

The upgrade of our current system will see the introduction of both barcoding and RFID technologies. One requirement of the proposed system will be to confirm the delivery (time and location) of a given pallet/container/good. In our current environment, the lack of standard integration between our WM and IM environments has made this almost impossible, without considerable customisation.

My question is this: with an SAP EWM platform, can the confirmation of a successful warehouse delivery be extended to the point of delivery, as opposed to the point of despatch from the warehouse?

Any clarification here would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,

Jamie

Hi,

the data model does not allow to enter site (destination point) directly into the Date/Time information. However in standard EWM delivery you may maintain Site (Supply-Chain-Unit) in the same fashion as you maintain Date/Times. Locations are a sub-table to delivery header.

That means you may assign a partner role to your destination site and then maintain Date/Time type of delivery to whatever destination point.

Does this meet your requirement?

Regards,

Petr
