Integration of Extended Warehouse Management into PP
You can use SAP EWM in conjunction with the following PP application components:
EWM Control Cycle
With the EWM control cycle, you specify the EWM-managed storage location from which the material required for production is to be withdrawn and the production supply area in which this material is to be staged. In addition, you specify the staging type.
The following control cycle categories are possible in conjunction with SAP-EWM:
Control cycle for EWM
Control Cycle Categoryindicates that the source and destination that you specify in the control cycle are EWM-managed. You can use this control cycle category for production and process orders only.
Control cycle EWM-IM
Control Cycle Categoryindicates that the source is EWM-managed and the destination MM-IM-managed. You can use this control cycle category for production and process orders as well as for repetitive manufacturing.
In SAP EWM Advanced Production Integration, Staging and Consumption are two different steps for Production Planning Integration.
- Staging and Consumption by Production orders.
Staging and Consumption for production is performed on the basis of a production material request (PMR) in SAP EWM. The PMR is created during WM material staging in SAP ERP and sent to SAP EWM. It represents the manufacturing order in SAP EWM.
