Using ERP Delivery Number as the EWM Document Number (ODO) in Embedded EWM

Purpose: In this blog, we will see how to have the ERP delivery number be listed as the EWM document number, which eliminates the need for separate EWM document numbers in embedded EWM. This can be setup for all inbound and outbound deliveries and can be used in a decentralized system as well. For more details about how to enable this functionality for a decentralized system, please see: 2933644 – Usage of LE-delivery number for EWM ODO | SAP Knowledge Base Article

Required Configuration:

Inbound Delivery Configuration

SAP IMG > SCM EWM > EWM > Goods Receipt Process > Inbound Delivery > Define Document Types for Inbound Delivery Process


Outbound Delivery Configuration

SAP IMG > SCM EWM > EWM > Goods Issue Process > Outbound Delivery > Define Document Types for Outbound Delivery Process


Results: Now you when searching in the monitor, you can see the document number updates with ERP delivery number. Deliveries created before implementing this configuration update will remain the same and have different LE delivery & EWM delivery numbers


Conclusion: In this blog post, I demonstrated how to update EWM document numbers to match ERP/LE delivery numbers thus allowing a better user experience when searching for inbound and outbound deliveries.
