This note describes how the special features of repetitive manufacturing are to be taken into account in the integration with Extended Warehouse Management (EWM).
You enter a confirmation for repetitive manufacturing in the ERP system; for example, via transaction MFBF using the physical data.  If the receiving storage location is managed in EWM, the system creates an inbound delivery instead of posting the goods receipt directly.  The inbound delivery is distributed to the EWM system where the goods receipt is posted and the material is put away.

Other terms


Reason and Prerequisites

The following delivery processing steps (which are generally possible in EWM) are not supported by repetitive manufacturing in the ERP system:

  • Partial goods receipts; for example, when confirming the warehouse task in the putaway process
  • Changing the delivery quantity
  • Delivery split
  • Manually creating the inbound delivery
  • Backflushing from an EWM storage location

The EWM system provides processes with which difference processes are executed without changes to the quantity in the inbound deliveries and without splits.  The document types and item types required for the delivery are included in the BC set /SCWM/DLV_PRODUCTION_REP_MAN.  The exact procedure is explained below.
