SAP S/4HANA EWM <=> Production Integration

Integration of Extended Warehouse Management into PP

You can use SAP EWM in conjunction with the following PP application components:

  • Production Orders

  • Process Orders

  • Repetitive Manufacturing

  • Kanban

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control cycle, you specify the EWM-managed storage location from which the material required for production is to be withdrawn and the production supply area in which this material is to be staged.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

    This Control Cycle Category indicates 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

    This Control Cycle Category indicates 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.

  • Hi Sriram,


    I hope you can help me with an issue I’m having with Best Practice Script 1VB (“Production Integration – Component Consumption and Receipt in Warehouse”. In fact we are using a “fully activated appliance 1809”, so all BP packages for S4HANA are installed, configured and activated.

    In script 1VB I’m supposed to release production orders which then create PMRs in EWM. This works fine – The PMR is created.

    But the next step fails: The system does not create warehouse tasks when I execute /SCWM/STAGE for this order. All I’m getting is the message /SCWM/PWR504 “All staging proposal quantities are 0; no staging needed” when I enter the production order.

    Setup in transaction /SCWM/PSASTAGE has been made properly (according to BP script 2AI). The BADI /SCWM/EX_MFG_STAGE_INFO is not implemented (meaning the SAP fallback implementation is executed, which I check in debugging, it is going in there, but the exit selects nothing… (ET_ITEMS)). Stock has been uploaded to storage bins by doing an initial stock upload as described in script 1FU.


    When I read documentation, I find nothing about that PMRs need to be released or something before the warehouse task can be created. Correct? The PMR has (just like the script says) status “Not started” and the production status is “Released”.


    Can you pinpoint me to what could be missing here in the setup? Thanks in advance!
