As companies grow and their logistics and supply chain operations become increasingly complex, they may find that they need more features and functionalities than what SAP ERP Warehouse Management offers. In those cases, they may consider integration with SAP Extended Warehouse Management.
SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) offers far greater functionality than is available in Warehouse Management (WM), such as Yard Management functionality, which enables optimized loading and unloading of transportation units, such as trucks or trailers. The Task Interleaving functionality in EWM reduces the occasions when a resource, such as a crane or forklift, moves around the warehouse without moving a product or a handling unit.
SAP EWM is an on-premises component of the SAP Supply Chain Management component, which itself is a part of the SAP Business Suite, whose other components include Customer Relationship Management and Supplier Relationship Management, among others.
