EWM of SCM 5.0 - Tons of Issues

Post by SP0526 » Sun Mar 04, 2007 12:38 am


Has anyone integrated SAP R/3 4.7 and EWM of SCM 5.0? It has got lot of issues in the following areas.

1. Master Data - Business Partners - Customers are transferred to EWM as locations with location type 1010. But it is not transferred as business partners.

2. Transactional Data - The Qrfc is not working for inbound and outbound deliveries and the IDOC interface is not creating the delivery request at EWM.

3. Internal warehouse processes - The simple thing like physical inventory document is not created. For physical inventory document, the system is asking the business partner, responsible person to dispose, shipping office, etc...

In general the whole EWM module is so cumbersome and non user friendly.

The documentation is so vague and it doesn't give any specifics.

It looks so great in the power point. But in reality this package got lot of holes.Please explore thoroughly before making any decision on EWM.

Has anyone faced the similar issues?

If you have any inputs, please let me know.

Thanks for your input.

it looks like intergration between ERP and EWM system has not defined properly. if the connections are established roperly QRFC should work fine.

I think while assigning warehouse you have not entered the business partner. In this IMG activity, you assign warehouse numbers to the master data supply chain unit. You should only make this assignment once for each warehouse number. Make sure that the owner of the warehouse and the default party entitled to dispose refer to business partners that already exist. The default party entitled to dispose is proposed, for example, when you manually create a warehouse request.

hope this helps you.
