What is the Role of an SAP EWM Consultant?

What is SAP EWM?

First of all, we need to answer the question what is "SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM)?" SAP EWM, for short, can be understood as an efficient warehouse management system that allows companies to manage their warehouse inventories with high precision. Utilizing SAP EWM, companies are able to control warehouse movements and improve their operational processes with advanced functionality. Specifically, the SAP EWM module can run as an integrated module, integrated with SAP ERP S/4 HANA systems, or as a decentralized system. Integration with SAP / R3 is also foreseen. Combining maximum functionality and end-to-end process support for all warehouse types, SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM) is one of the most powerful warehouse management and control software packages globally. It provides end-to-end support for supply chain processes. In addition, SAP EWM is a component of SAP Supply Chain Management (SAP SCM).

Why is the use of an SAP EWM module recommended?

According to its name, SAP EWM is mainly needed by companies that have warehouse management processes. Warehouse Management is essential for companies because disruptions in the Warehouse Management processes can slow down or even stop the entire process of the company's operation. In the present day, most companies with warehouse management operations need the SAP EWM module to eliminate potential problems and make their warehouse management processes more functional and manageable.

Benefits of SAP EWM

SAP EWM has a wide range of benefits for companies. In the following, we will demonstrate the most important ones. SAP EWM facilitates companies to manage their resources in a flexible and most efficient way and increases inventory accuracy and transparency. Using the SAP EWM module, you can process inbound and outbound transactions, as well as inbound and outbound stock transfer functions in between. At the same time, it automates and facilitates the movement of goods by companies and provides flexible management by organizing complex processes in bulk warehouses.  Indeed, among the main advantages of SAP EWM is its perfect integration with the present SAP world and the possibility to use existing SAP expertise and related tools such as SAP Business Warehouse (SAP BW) to analyze massive data volumes. An additional advantage of SAP EWM is the high level of its standardization. Higher levels of standardization provide high employee satisfaction and maximum operational efficiency by minimizing the risk of faults and failure rates in routine operations. Extensive mobile warehouse functionality interconnects processes, or integrated material flow system delivered as standard with SAP EWM or value-added services are compelling arguments to invest in an SAP-EWM module.

What is the SAP EWM Consulting?

What are the Duties and Responsibilities of the SAP EWM Consultant?

Exemplarily daily tasks of an SAP EWM consultant include:  Depending on the requirements of the customers, their budget, IT procedures and standards, an SAP EWM consultant develops a suitable IT roadmap and implements it step by step.  On the other hand, a consultant can, for example, plan, supervise and implement national and international SAP EWM projects as a partial or overall project manager.
