Standard Statuses in TM at a glance
When working with TM, I find it useful to look at all statuses at one glance, thus I am pasting here a summary power point of the standard statuses and how they are updated by EM. Hope, you find it useful.
The execution status at the header can be used to exclude FOs from the cockpit that have arrived at the final destination.
It allows you to show only freight orders that are “in execution” in a POWL.
The handling execution status on FO item level can be used to check what is the current status of the FU (loaded or unloaded ) but it does not say where.
For example, on the Fo item tab, customers can see which one of the FUs was already loaded. But, it changes to unloaded when its delivered and always shows the latest status.
The handling execution status on the stop level says what the status is AND where.
The cargo receipt status allows seeing if one product on a FU was delivered.
If you use standard EM events UNLOAD_END and LOAD_END to do your loadings and unloadings, these statuses will be updated automatically.
In addition, the logistics execution status on the FO header is updated with the last event which is visible on the FO POWLs.
A complete explanation can be found in the TM application help in the following link:
I would be interested to know the various statuses exchanged with EWM and what action in EWM updates the various status in TM and vice versa.
Will ask around. I have 5 EWM experts around me. But, please tell me which actions you are referring to. Goods issue posting and goods receipt posting? Because stock transfer postings would only be relevant for TM if you do the transfer using a truck and if you want to follow the transportation. Please clarify and I will try to get an answer.
I am actually looking for all std processes between SAP TM and SAP EWM including GR/GI /Transfer postings. I am not exactly sure what action in EWM updates what statuses in TM and vice versa. I think in sdn forum we need to post more articles on TM-EWM integration
regarding post goods issue and post goods receipt, I do not think that there is standard integration. What I have done in several implementations is to generate a loading event at goods issue and an unload event at goods receipt. I have triggered these via exits in ERP at goods posting. How the loading event set the statuses at product, FU and FO level in TM is described above. I hope, there will be direct and standard integration for GI and GR soon. Regards
a) However in SAP TM/EWM 9.3 version for outbound process in case we update the GI status in EWM, I am sure it should trigger TM status /update event information using std interface.
b) I am not sure for inbound process in EWM is there any status updates from EWM to TM?
c) Lastly can you kindly check with EWM experts if we can actually update GI quantity in EWM or is it done only in ECC?
