The 2022 SAP Extended Warehouse Management Advent Calendar
We have reached the closing month of 2022, and that means that the winter holiday season is upon us. So, in order to lighten the mood and lift up some spirits, the SAP EWM Product Management team has decided to continue the tradition we started last year with the SAP EWM Advent Calendar 2021.
For those not familiar with the calendar, and as a reminder of last year, the Advent Calendar is a Christmas tradition originating in Germany, which counts down the days until Christmas beginning with December 1st. For more information on how it works and how we will present this calendar in a virtual setting, please refer to last year’s article, linked above.
We will be updating this article with a new paragraph each day up until December 24th, so you can bookmark this page until then for easier access to the daily updates.
We hope you enjoy this article and that the information you will discover proves useful and exciting.
DAY 24: HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!!!!!!
We have reached the end of this year’s advent calendar, and what a year it has been. I would like to proudly thank our great development teams for their tireless work and dedication. Thanks to their efforts, we have not slowed down in delivering enhancements that all our customers can appreciate.
I also want to thank you, our dear customers and partners, for your continued support, and for providing the feedback and encouragement we needed to push forward.
This year is our second attempt at such a calendar, and I believe now we can mark this a new holiday tradition. Despite the amount of content we shared, I am certain there is a lot more that could be said and shown about SAP EWM, and even more so about SAP DSC Logistics. We will continue to publish as much as we can, so stay tuned, and stay curious.
And to close off, I want to acknowledge one last time the great SAP EWM development and product management teams. This is as much a celebration of them as it is of SAP EWM. I wish for all readers of this blog post a new year with more triumphs, satisfying projects (both in your professional and personal lives) as well as health and peace. May you enjoy to the fullest this holiday season with your loved ones, and I will see you in the next year!
Day 23: Sneak Preview – Warehouse Management in SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2302
Continuing yesterday’s trend, today I will share a brief look into the planned scope for the SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2302 release.
The scope of the upcoming Warehouse Management in SAP S/4HANA Cloud release is quite packed with many usability improvements (such as a new Fiori App to manage EWM Outbound Delivery Orders, and new Warehouse Analytics Content for SAP Analytics Cloud), many enhancements to core functionalities, as well as more custom extensibility options (such as additional features in pack stock API (HU) and new remote API for physical stock actions). One more highlight to mention is the additional investment in advanced production integration based on the Production Material Request.
To find out more about these topics and others that are part of the upcoming release, be sure to check out the linked document “Warehouse Management in SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2302 – Planned Scope”.
Day 22: Sneak Preview – EWM in SAP S/4HANA 2022 FPS01
Before we close out soon this year’s calendar, I would like to also give you a brief glimpse of the upcoming releases SAP will deliver early in 2023. First off today I want to share with you the planned scope for the upcoming SAP S/4HANA 2022 FPS01 release.
The new release will deliver more enhancements to features delivered in SAP S/4HANA 2022, as well as previous releases, such as:
- Advanced Shipping & Receiving enhancements
- MES integration enhancements
- Field Logistics Cross Docking enhancements
- More APIs
Other than enhancements, this release will also deliver new features, with the main highlight Machine Learning for Slotting.
To get a proper glimpse of the above mentioned topics and more, please check out the embedded “SAP EWM in SAP S/4HANA 2022 FPS01 Planned Scope” document.
Day 21: More Documentation on Available APIs
Today I would like to offer more documentation on APIs.
SAP Note 3078938 “APIs available in Extended Warehouse Management” gives an overview of APIs which are available for use in Extended Warehouse Management for local system calls, that is, APIs with no remote interface call scenarios from other systems.
SAP Knowledge Based Article 3115182 “Extended Warehouse Management – APIs” also contains the list of all APIs available for use in SAP Extended Warehouse Management, but also additional references to relevant notes that compliment the knowledge, such as a note that details Cloud EWM APIs for EWM embedded/ decentralized EWM based on SAP S/4HANA.
Day 20: More SAP Warehouse Robotics Sources for Additional Information
As we are approaching the end of the Advent Calendar, I want to share just some more information sources on one of the hottest topics from this year, namely SAP Warehouse Robotics. Earlier in the calendar we shared guides on how to implement SAP Warehouse Robotics, as well as shared the “What’s New” articles and slide decks which cover this topic in more depth. Today I would like to offer some more guidance and roadmap links you can use at your leisure:
- In the SAP Warehouse Robotics Online Help Portal you can find feature scope descriptions, answers to frequently asked questions, a video library about applications usage and features, and much more.
- For more information on how to integrate Warehouse Robotics with SAP EWM we provide more guidance on a dedicated SAP Help portal page.
- The SAP Warehouse Robotics roadmap page shows the planned scope for the future, and as it is subject to change, be sure to check it out from time to time for any new additions and changes.
Day 19: SAP Note on Rounding Residuals a.k.a. “Decimal Dust”
When we talk about “Rounding Residual” we refer to the difference between quantities caused by rounding in EWM. This is especially important in the communication with the ERP system, since the precision in EWM (14 decimal places) is different from the precision in ERP (3 decimal places). Rounding residuals become the root cause of significant inconsistencies such as:
- Apparent differences in inventory can occur in the case of fractional movements of the same quantity, especially when rounded with different levels of precision between EWM and ERP. When a goods movement (GM) completely clears the quantity in EWM, a residual quantity can remain in ERP, or the GM cannot even be posted because there is a negative (residual) quantity.
- In the case of postings with different units of measure in EWM, quantities below the displayed precision of 3 decimal places (in base unit of measure) can remain on a storage bin and cannot be removed with standard means.
To correct this issue, SAP has published two SAP Notes with the necessary corrections. Implementing SAP Note 3099371 “Reduce Rounding Residuals in EWM Integration” reduces decimal dust by adding the leftover residual quantity to the removed quantity of the goods movement that would keep it on the storage bin or by calculating and storing residuals in EWM and posting them to ERP when possible. This note is also a pre-requisite for SAP Note “Rounding Residuals (a.k.a. Decimal Dust) – Consulting Note”, which is the most recent corrective solution SAP has provided for Decimal Dust. The solution approach is that at each goods movement reported to ERP with a rounding difference in EWM, the rounding difference for the quantity is persisted in the difference analyser in EWM. Once the total amount of differences that are collected in the difference analyser for a stock key has reached a value that is detectable in ERP, it is possible to post these differences to ERP. For more information on the downsides of Rounding Residuals, as well as the solution approaches and how to implement them, please consult the linked notes.
Day 18: Another Major Achievement in 2022 – SAP Named Leader for Warehouse Management Systems in Gartner Magic Quadrant™
Today I would like to share some news that may have flown under the radar the past few months, and that is the fact that SAP was yet again recognized by Gartner as a Leader in Magic Quadrant™ for Transportation Management Systems and Magic Quadrant™ for Warehouse Management Systems. SAP is a leading provider in driving supply chain convergence, which is reflected in our integrated supply chain execution platform consisting of SAP Transportation Management, SAP Extended Warehouse Management and SAP Yard Logistics. We believe that our position as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant reports shows SAP’s continued commitment and investment in seamless, end-to-end supply chain management. To read more about this achievement, please read this featured article by our Solution Manager Till Dengel “SAP Named a 2022 Magic Quadrant™ Transportation Management Systems and Magic Quadrant™ for Warehouse Management Systems Leader by Gartner®”.
Day 17: Warehouse Management in SAP S/4HANA Cloud Training
Aside from a range of help portals, documentation, guides and “What’s New” slide decks, SAP also provides a variety of trainings that bolster a user’s knowledge and experience. These Do-It-Yourself trainings provide insights and examples when working with an SAP warehouse management system and familiarize users with the most essential warehouse processes and tasks. For example, for the scope items of Warehouse Management in SAP S/4HANA Cloud (also referred to as Public Cloud), there are excellent task tutorials available, such as for Warehouse Inbound Processing. From a process perspective, these can also be relevant for a SAP S/4HANA Private Cloud or On Premise deployments.
For more educational content, we also have a series of Warehouse Management Microlearnings, which provides easy to consume video tutorials on configuring and using various processes available in Warehouse Management for SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
Day 16: SAP Extended Warehouse Management for SAP S/4HANA Cloud, Functional Comparison and Deployment Options
For day 16, I just want to briefly share a blog post by one of our SAP colleagues, Laurent Gravier. In it, Laurent provides a brief overview of the SAP Extended Warehouse Management for SAP S/4HANA Cloud, private edition and of Warehouse Management in SAP S/4HANA Cloud, their functional differences, and the deployment options. If you are interested to find out more, please check out his article “SAP Extended Warehouse Management for SAP S/4HANA Cloud, private edition: functional comparison and deployment options”.
Day 15: How-to Guide for SAP Global Trade Services Integration in EWM on S/4HANA
Continuing the thread of lesser-known guides SAP has published, today I want to quickly share the How-To Guide on integrating SAP Global Trade Services (SAP GTS) with SAP EWM in SAP S/4HANA. The integration with SAP GTS helps EWM to execute customs and compliance checks on warehouse request documents in several different processes. With SAP Note 3233696 “SAP GTS Integration in EWM on S/4HANA – How-To Guide” you can find the mentioned document as an attachment. The guide describes the relevant processes and the necessary customizing steps which need to be executed in the EWM system to have a working EWM-GTS Integration.
Day 14: Interesting EWM Note Search Feature
As we presented and will continue to present many SAP Notes in this blog post as well as others, today I want to share with you a method to make the process of searching notes easier and more efficient.
In the following blog post Anke Genis describes an interesting note search feature called expert filter option ‘SAP TopSolutions’.
There are situations when users search for specific SAP Notes/KBAs and experience some trouble in narrowing down the long result list to the most relevant SAP Notes & KBAs.
SAP is offering a helpful feature with the search filter ‘SAP TopSolutions’ as Document Type. If your result list is too long, just use search filter ‘Document Type = SAP TopSolutions’ to obtain only SAP Notes & KBAs that were recommended already to a high number of customers or are considered by support engineers as important SAP Notes & KBAs.
In the blog post Anke emphasizes an additional feature: You can even subscribe to your search. That way you will be informed if new SAP Notes & KBAs get classified as SAP TopSolutions.
Day 13: Build a Post Processing Framework (PPF) Action to Create an Outbound Delivery when Loading is Complete
As soon as all the products are loaded onto the vehicle you want to trigger follow-up actions in ERP, e.g. printing of the LE delivery note. For that purpose, an outbound delivery (final delivery) must be created in SAP EWM which sends all the relevant information to the LE delivery. Some customers want to automate the EWM outbound delivery creation based on the loading status of the delivery.
SAP Note 3191686 “Build a PPF Action for creating an Outbound Delivery when loading is completed” aims to provide an overview about the creation of a custom specific PPF action in order to create the outbound delivery in EWM automatically with setting the loading status of the EWM outbound delivery order header to the value ‘Completed’. See the attached document of the note for a detailed instruction.
Day 12: Application Programming Interfaces for Warehousing
We have mentioned our list of APIs available for warehousing multiple times in the past. This set of protocols and methods that allow to connect business processes across your system landscape has an extensive list of warehouse specific APIs, ranging from inbound and outbound order processing to physical inventory management, to warehouse bin assignments.
Today I want to dedicate a little paragraph to that list, as I feel it would be good to have it highlighted for easier access in its own section. Our growing list of warehouse specific APIs can be found via our help portal, accessible here.
I also encourage visiting the API Business Hub and typing “Warehouse” in the search function. There, you can find specific business documentations as attachments for each API, as well as more resource details.
Day 11: Frequently Asked Questions about System Architecture
As readers and visitors of our SAP EWM community page may be aware, SAP provides extensive documentation on all aspects of how to set up SAP Extended Warehouse Management systems, which integration options available, as well as guidance for implementations. However, some questions require a faster answer, and with some of our blog posts, we try to answer those questions. In our “The SAP Extended Warehouse Management FAQ Series: System Architecture” blog post, we answer the following questions:
- Which deployment options are available?
- How can we harmonize material numbers if we have multiple ERP systems connected to the same decentral EWM on SAP S/4HANA?
- Can we connect Decentral SAP EWM on SAP S/4HANA to SAP S/4HANA Cloud?
- Can we run the new Advanced Shipping & Receiving with decentral SAP EWM?
- Are there any plans for an integration with Global Trade Services via SAP Transportation Management?
- Can we use SAP Transportation Management (SAP TM) and Decentral SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM) on the same SAP S/4HANA system and client?
- Can we run other applications as well on the same system as decentral SAP EWM?
- Is there a source for guides or best practices documents for SAP Extended Warehouse Management?
Our FAQ blog series will continue in 2023, so stay tuned for more.
Day 10: Advanced Shipping & Receiving Setup Guide
In several previous blog posts, we have covered the new simplified integration between SAP Transportation Management and SAP Extended Warehouse Management, called Advanced Shipping & Receiving. Originally released in SAP S/4HANA 2020 FPS01, we continuously work on deepening and enhancing this integration with new scenarios and features.
For this advent calendar section, I want to share the Advanced Shipping and Receiving guide which explains the scenarios for the inbound and outbound logistics processes, as well as instructs on how to re-create these scenarios, copy entries and change them, or to correct accidental changes. The ASR guide can be found as an attachment in SAP Note 3225241 “Advanced Shipping and Receiving – Setup Guide”.
You can also find more information on Advanced Shipping and Receiving by accessing this link from our SAP Help Portal page.
Day 9: Guides for SAP Warehouse Robotics
We have previously presented the release in this year of SAP Warehouse Robotics, most recently in the SAP S/4HANA 2022 What’s New for SAP EWM blog article.
Released in May of 2022, SAP Warehouse Robotics is a product that is built on the SAP Business Technology Platform. It can be used to automate the warehouse operations using robots, for example, to move handling units (HUs) from source storage bins to destination storage bins. It has an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) agnostic architecture, which offers maximum flexibility and freedom of choice when onboarding new robots.
What we haven’t share previously however, are the various guides our teams have prepared about SAP Warehouse Robotics and the corresponding integration services.
With SAP Note 3198030 “How-To Guides for SAP Warehouse Robotics”, you can find in the attachment section the guides for the following functions:
- Onboarding of SAP Warehouse Robotics
- How to Prepare Kubernetes Environment
- How to Deploy Robot Adapter
- Developer’s Guide for Robot Adapter
- Sample Codes for Robot Adapter
We hope these guides will aid you in onboarding and growing your fleet of warehouse robots.
Day 8: Release Information and Restrictions of SAP EWM on SAP S/4HANA 2022
For the 8th day of the advent calendar, I want to reshare an essential document SAP is updating with each release. We link it often at the end of every release article, yet I feel this is the best opportunity to highlight in its own separate article. I am referring of course to the “Overview of Functional and Technical Differences between Extended Warehouse Management in SAP S/4HANA OP 2022 and SAP EWM 9.5” document.
SAP Note 3218648 “SAP S/4HANA 2022: Release information and restrictions for EWM in SAP S/4HANA” contains release information and restrictions when using embedded Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) in SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 2022.
SAP Note 3218673 “Release information and restrictions of Decentralized EWM on SAP S/4HANA 2022” contains release information and restrictions when using Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) on a separate decentralized SAP S/4HANA system, on-premise edition 2022.
Both notes contain as an attachment the overview document of functional and technical differences mentioned above.
One more recommendation is to check the SAP Note 1606493 „SAP EWM Deployment Options Best Practices“ which supports in deliberating which available deployment option of SAP EWM must be chosen.
Day 7: Welcome (back) to the Podcast
In today’s brief advent reveal, I want to share the spotlight again on the great and very informative podcast led by Andreas Rupp and Matthias Nater, solution advisors for digital supply chain, and some of the most knowledgeable colleagues I had to pleasure to work with.
In their latest podcast episode, they cover SAP EWM in the cloud, how the system looks like, what does it do, and what are the benefits of it.
But of course, there are a lot more exciting topics covered in the podcast, such as automation with SAP EWM and its history, production logistics, migrations from existing SAP Business Suite EWM implementations and from SAP LE-WM implementations, mobile warehousing, and much more.
So with all that said, I highly encourage you to check out and follow the Extended Warehouse Management Podcast with Andreas and Matthias (available in both English and German).
Day 6: Updates to the list of “How-to” Guides for SAP Extended Warehouse Management
When we redesigned our SAP EWM Community page, we also created a new list of all our SAP EWM How-to guides for easier access and convenience. Something that we did not communicate throughout the year are the updates to some of the guides in the list. So today, I would like to mention some of the updated ones, with links to access them so you can read more about the updates.
- Configuration of ABAP Push Channels TCP for Material Flow System in Extended Warehouse Management – this guide describes how you can configure EWM to directly communicate with PLCs.
- Basic Settings for SAP EWM in SAP S/4HANA – this document describes the basic settings for using SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM) in SAP S/4HANA.
- How To Program Warehouse Order Processing in Extended Warehouse Management – this guide describes what you need to consider when you create custom developments involving the business objects for warehouse order processing in the Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) component of SAP S/4HANA 2022 or later.
- How to Configure Email Alerting for qRFC – this guide describes how to reduce the QRFC monitoring effort by using an alert. This way, the users responsible for solving the issue receive an email or an SMS to inform them about the failed queue. They don’t have to monitor the queues actively.
- How To Add Application Content to the Warehouse Management Monitor – this guide shows examples of how the content of the warehouse management monitor can be enhanced and adjusted so you can build your own warehouse management monitor content.
- Radio Frequency – this guide describes how to begin working in the radio frequency (RF) framework, the answers to frequently asked questions, and common errors to avoid.
- Pick by Voice – this guide describes the parts of SAP EWM and ITS used to create a voice-enabled transaction.
We will keep updating the list with more guides, as well as update existing ones, so be sure to bookmark the list and stay tuned.
Day 5: Recap of the Warehouse Management features delivered in the major SAP S/4HANA releases in 2022
In today’s featured advent contribution, I would like to reflect on the achievements of our developers that worked hard on delivering an incredible scope of features and updates with each SAP S/4HANA release this year. To that end, I will re-share here the “What’s New” articles and presentations that we published with each release. In ascending chronological order, these are:
- SAP Extended Warehouse Management in SAP S/4HANA 2021 FPS01 – What’s New – With this release, we focused our efforts to further improve the new SAP TM-EWM integration also known as Advanced Shipping and Receiving (ASR), added new features to enhance the user experience, provided new integration and migration options, and worked on a range of other continuous improvements.
- SAP Warehouse Management in SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2202 – What’s New – In this Cloud release we enhanced the integration between production and warehousing, improved the user experience by enhancing the scan fields for HU identification, expanded the list of available APIs, and more.
- SAP Warehouse Management in SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2208 – What’s New – In this Cloud release we delivered a wide range of new features and enhancements covering many areas in the warehousing process, such as packing proposals for inbound and outbound deliveries, more Quality Management developments, cross-docking for field logistics, new monitor functions, more user experience enhancements, many new extensibility options, and much more.
- SAP Extended Warehouse Management in SAP S/4HANA 2022 – What’s New – In this release we continued to invest in stronger integration with Quality Management, Manufacturing and Transportation solutions, delivered features tailored for the retail/wholesale/fashion automotive & oil and gas industries, worked on enhancing usability and user experience and much more.
Day 4: SAP EarlyWatch Alert can now identify missing side effect solving SAP Notes
As we have recapped some support and guidance tools on Day 3, today I would like to present some recent updates to one of the available tools. Back in our “SAP EWM Support and Guidance Tools” blog post, we featured the SAP EarlyWatch Alert. One of the best introductions for this tool was written by Rozyta Mary, in her article from July 2021 “Introduction of application specific Extended Warehouse Management Checks in SAP EarlyWatch Alert”.
In November of 2022, Rozyta has provided an update on a new feature available in SAP EarlyWatch Alert.
There may be cases when after implementation of a SAP Note, some side effects can appear in the system. While SAP provides fast fixes and corrections of these side effects, they must be manually tracked down.
With the new development for SAP EarlyWatch Alert however, the tool can pro-actively alert customers when they implement an SAP Note that is known to cause issues in the past. With an automated process established between SAP Notes and SAP EarlyWatch Alert, the tool is updated with the latest information on SAP Notes which solve side effects. With this, it can check the status on implemented SAP Notes, and provide alerts in case side effect solving SAP Notes are required.
You can find out more about this feature in Rozyta’s article “SAP EarlyWatch Alert now identifies missing Side Effect Solving Sap Notes”.
DAY 3: Support & Guidance Tools available for SAP Extended Warehouse Management
As it is the weekend, today I would like to only dedicate a few moments to recap some useful articles we published during this year. The articles I wish to highlight concern the most useful support tools SAP provides. These can be used during an implementation project to identify inconsistencies and errors before full deployment, or to troubleshoot an issue when identified in a productive system. The tools we presented are:
- The SAP EWM Check Monitor
- The SAP EarlyWatch Alert
- The SAP Note Analyzer
- The ABAP Test Cockpit
- The Support Assistant for SAP EWM
You can find out more about each tool, as well as the sources for more information on how to implement and use them, in our blog post “The SAP Extended Warehouse Management FAQ Series: Support & Guidance Tools”.
At the time of publishing this article in July 2022, the ABAP Test Cockpit did not have any SAP EWM specific checks available. As stated in the Day 2 calendar update, the SAP EWM ATC checks were released in October 2022. As such, we prepared a dedicated article providing an overview of those checks, alongside more informational and guidance resources specific to this topic.
To find out more on these checks, please access our blog post “The SAP Extended Warehouse Management FAQ Series: The ABAP Test Cockpit Checks for SAP EWM”.
DAY 2: New Guide on How to Program Warehouse Order Processing (WOP) in SAP Extended Warehouse Management
With the SAP S/4HANA 2022, which we covered in a previous blog post, there were a few other releases which might have flown under the radar. In October, we also covered the ABAP Test Cockpit checks for SAP EWM. However, aside from the new features and functions released for SAP EWM, and the new ATC checks, we have published a brand new How-to-Guide, which we made available in the list of available How-to-Guides which can be found on our SAP EWM Community page.
We felt this guide deserves its own spotlight, as it provides essential guidance for those customers that create custom developments involving the SAP EWM component. This guide covers three broad sections:
- Business Objects in Warehouse Core and How to Access Them Programmatically goes through the fundamentals of managing transactions in SAP EWM, introduces the main business objects relevant to WOP, as well as the main database tables, function modules and methods to access the main business objects in custom developments.
- The Extensibility chapter explores the extensibility options for the main business objects, including the relevant Business Add-Ins (BAdIs) in warehouse order processing.
- In the Additional Considerations section there are recommendations for custom developments, and the main points for system performance. This guide also provides an overview of the new ABAP Test Cockpit (ATC) checks for developments in SAP EWM.
So whether you are a consultant or developer that is planning or working on an EWM project, or if you are a solution architect that is aligning customer requirements and solution designs to standard functionality, this how-to guide will provide guidance and recommendations that you may seek. You can find out more by finding the guide in the “How-to Guides” list linked above, or by clicking directly on this link.
DAY 1: Modernized RF Screens using SAP GUI for HTML and SAP Screen Personas
We have highlighted in previous release blogs and articles the option to modernize RF screens with a range of customization options using SAP GUI for HTML and SAP Screen Personas. In today’s first advent calendar reveal, we will provide a plethora of resources that you can use to familiarize yourselves with these RF customization options.
For context, SAP EWM delivers for warehouse processes 130+ RF logical transactions for working with mobile devices in a warehouse. They cover processes like:
- Loading and unloading
- Physical inventory
- Internal movements
- Quality management
Recently we modernized RF screens by using SAP GUI for HTML. Compared to ITSmobile technology used so far, ABAP dynpros built in the RF framework do not require an extra step of generating HTML pages. Instead, they can be directly accessed by an URL in SAPGUI for HTML on the RF device. Important to note is that ITSmobile will still be supported to safeguard investments of our large customer base.
The benefits of the new approach are:
- RF screens in SAP GUI for HTML will be rendered in the newest visual harmonized theme of SAP. So, the look & feel stays state of the art.
- SAP Screen Personas can be applied to adapt the screens to individual customer needs.
- The new design runs out of the box in the industry browser of the RF device. This holds true for all standard RF logical transactions as well as for customer build RF Framework based screens.
We also want to share a demo video, which shows a basic picking process. Three alternatives of the RF screens are depicted:
- Plain ITSmobile (without being adapted per custom Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) or Visual Editor)
- Plain SAP GUI for HTML and
- SAP GUI for HTML with SAP Screen Personas
The demo illustrates what could be achieved by applying SAP Screen Personas:
- Size of pushbuttons have been increased
- Color of background pushbutton and fonts have been changed
- Font and font size changed
- New screen elements e.g. screen title, icons, pictures, logo introduced
- Fields hidden
- Screens restructured
- Reduced menu entries
- New pushbuttons with actions to prefill field values and automate steps introduced by using scripting in SAP Screen Personas
To find out more on how to implement and use these new customization options, please refer to the following sources:
- RF using SAP GUI for HTML in SAP note 3048632
- How-To Guides
Also good to know is a list of features that were recently delivered in this context:
- In S/4HANA 2020 OP we delivered
- Logging and tracing and portrait mode in RF transactions Link
- In S/4HANA 2021 OP
- In S/4HANA 2022 OP
Our work on providing modern and user friendly mobile options for warehouse operators will continue, so be sure to stay informed by visiting our SAP EWM Community page.
