EWM Warehouse Organizational Structure

1. Warehouse Enterprise Organizational Structure


2. Warehouse Organizational Master Data


1. Define Warehouse Number


In this IMG activity you create warehouse numbers with a corresponding description.

In SAP Extended Warehouse Management, a warehouse complex is mapped as a warehouse number, which you can use to identify the warehouse complex. An essential factor for defining a warehouse number is the physical location. A warehouse number summarizes storage types and storage bins that are organized and managed together.


All operations in warehouse management, such as put-away or stock removals of products, are always executed within a warehouse number.


A warehouse number has the following attributes:

  • A warehouse number has a short description but no address.

  • You can store warehouse-specific product data.

  • Within a warehouse number, stocks are managed on a quantity basis and not on a value basis.

2. Copy Warehouse Number Customizing


In this IMG activity, you can copy all warehouse-number-dependent entries in Customizing tables into a new warehouse number. Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) determines the Customizing tables using the foreign key dependencies for the warehouse number. However, EWM does not copy the number range intervals.

5. Define Storage Type


In this Customizing activity, you define the various storage types within a warehouse number. A warehouse number is divided up into various storage types. A storage type is defined by its spatial or organizational attributes A storage type has a short description but no address, and you cannot store any storage-type-specific product data. Storage types are the highest level of organization.

Storage Types are grouping of storage bin that have similar attributes (for example, high rack storage area, bulk storage, goods receipt zones).

6. Define Storage Section


In this Customizing activity, you assign storage sections to a warehouse number and a storage type.


A storage section is an organizational unit within the storage type, which summarizes storage bins with common attributes for the purpose of put-away.

The use of storage sections in a storage type is only mandatory if you use storage section control or storage section search in the storage type.


Defining of Storage Section is not mandatory in EWM. (Example, Fast Moving Item, Slow Moving Item etc.)
