SAP Logistics

Our focus is on the modules of SAP logistics, which we explain to you in more detail. In addition, we explain the interaction of the SAP modules.

The framework is SAP Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). The ERP itself is composed of several modules. Each module represents a business field of application. The individual SAP modules are closely interlinked and form a “total complex”. The close interlocking ensures optimum interaction of the processes.

Modules of logistics

  • SAP MM – Materials Management; Materials
  • SAP SD – Sales and Distribution; Sales
  • SAP LES – Logistiscs Execution System; Shipping and warehouse management
  • SAP WM – Warehouse Management or Warehouse Management is a key component of Logistics Execution
  • SAP EWM – Extended Warehouse Management
  • SAP SRM – Stock Room Management as unofficial successor to SAP WM under S/4HANA

Materials
Material management, i.e. SAP MM, is considered a meta-module. It enables purchasing and procurement as well as inventory management and inventory. With the help of the MM module, the material masters are maintained and managed. The SAP MM module lays the foundations for the modules based on it.
Sales

The SAP SD module is a core of the SAP ERP. It maps complex documents such as quotation and order. In addition, sales maintain sigoats products as well as business partners and generates the billing document. Within sales, the master data from materials management is used. It creates deliveries with and without order reference using SAP ERP. It also links deliveries to transports. The documents build on each other, and the document flow is created as a result.

Logistics Execution
Logistics Execution handles the storage of the goods and the shipping. Warehouse management is one of the main components. It deals with the movement of goods. There is often talk of inbound (goods receipt), outbound (goods issue) and intralogistics (goods movements within the warehouse). The challenges to warehouse management have risen rapidly in recent years. The SAP WM is now reaching its performance limits.
Extended Warehouse Management
Consequently, SAP began implementing Extended Warehouse Management (EWM). In many areas, the EWM is more flexible than its predecessor and thus enables the mapping of demanding processes. The installation of the EEM is often decentralized. As a result, it is no longer an immediate component of the ERP. I recommend a decentralized implementation because it promises better performance.
Stock Room Management
Under S/4 HANA, the SAP WM will experience a revival as an integrative solution. Stock Room Management is considered an unofficial successor to SAP WM. Alternatively, it is also possible to use the SAP EWM embedded under S4/HANA.
