ERP Organizational Structure for SAP EWM

EWM Enterprise Structure   

This blog will discuss about the ERP Organizational Structure for SAP Extended Warehouse Management System.

In SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM), the organizational structure within the SAP ERP system is closely linked to the warehouse management processes. Here's an overview of the key components of the organizational structure in SAP ERP for EWM;

  1. Plant (Company Code): In SAP ERP, a plant represents a physical location where goods are produced, stored, or distributed. Each plant is assigned to a company code and is associated with specific business processes, such as procurement, production, and sales. In the context of EWM, a plant serves as the highest-level organizational unit and is typically associated with one or more warehouses or distribution centers.

  2. Storage Location: A storage location is a subdivision of a plant where goods are stored within the warehouse. It represents a specific physical area within the plant where inventory is managed and tracked. In EWM, storage locations serve as the primary storage areas within the warehouse and are associated with specific storage types and bins.

3. Warehouse Number (Warehouse ID):

While warehouse-related data is primarily managed within SAP EWM, the warehouse number (or warehouse ID) is still relevant in SAP ERP as a reference to the warehouse or distribution center associated with a specific plant or storage location.

The warehouse number serves as a link between SAP ERP and SAP EWM, enabling integration and data exchange between the two systems.
