What is the Difference Between EWM and WM?

SAP EWM, from the simplest to the most complex supports all processes in the warehouse. Thanks to the flexibility of SAP EWM, inventory stocks and various goods movements can be efficiently managed. SAP has been offering a new solution for warehouse management with SAP EWM (Extended Warehouse Management) since 2006. The performance of this solution goes beyond the current and widely available SAP WM module.

  • Warehouse cockpit is a feature in SAP EWM that allows you to graphically view warehouse key figures and evaluate or track activities using specified chart types. 
  • SAP EWM also covers the packaging, handling, and transportation of hazardous substances in compliance with SAP Environmental Health & Safety EHS regulations. 
  • You can use slotting for items to evaluate storage concepts and automatically optimize the layout of a goods warehouse. 
  • Before placing different items in different storage sections, you should deconsolidate handling units that contain different products. 
  • You can also schedule labor times and resources more efficiently in SAP EWM, allowing you to make your Warehouse more competitive by effectively managing key resource management tasks. 
Sap EWM is similar to SAP WM in terms of features, but it offers more customization options, such as warehouse structure and picking/putaway processes. SAP EWM also incorporates new ideas such as activity zones, Work Centers, and Resources. 
EWM, according to SAP, is a more robust and versatile alternative to WM. EWM has the same basic core functionalities as WM, but adds features like labor management and internal routing. The WM module will no longer be produced, and its support period will end in 2025, according to the SAP roadmap. It’s time to start planning your SAP EWM migration!
