Explore SAP EWM: Default Party Entitled to Dispose
The purpose of this blog is to check how the Embedded S/4 Hana SAP EWM (2022) behaves when the EWM warehouse is linked to multiple Plants and the Party Entitled to Dispose (PED) is maintained for one of the plants at EWM Warehouse number control.
(Client – FMCG Industry) (Product – Fruit Juice in Tetrapak)
Definition of Default PED:
They both use the same physical space for their warehousing needs and are part of the same parent company, based out of Germany.
Product 25015 (Real Fruit Power Mixed Fruit Juice 1L) is manufactured in PG11 and stored in PG99, before final dispatch to supermarket stores, distributors, wholesalers and retailers.
So, the 2 plants are created in SAP S/4 Hana as Logical Entities but physically they have the same address and use the same warehouse space (EPG1).
50001 – Business Partner for Plant PG11
50015 – Business Partner for Plant PG99
Since, we can only store only one BP in Warehouse Number Control, we store 50001 as PED.
- For Plant PG11, Product 250015
2. For Plant PG99, Product 250015
Although SAP suggests to not maintain the Default Party Entitled to Dispose in case of multiple ERP plants linked to same EWM warehouse, even if we maintain the BP for one of the plant – at documents level, the system takes care of populating the correct PED per the plant owner.
Any guess, where does EWM read this Plant – PED assignment from to populate in the documents as seen above. Please post a comment.
Thank you for reading, please feel free to add inputs and also give suggestions on how to bog better 🙂
