Synchronous backflushing of handling units from repetitive manufacturing into EWM embedded in SAP S/4HANA 1909
Recently, the product owner of SAP EWM ”Joerg Michaelis” had recently published the blog Receiving from Production in SAP Extended Warehouse Management – Overview
The blog by SAP explains the integration of each aspect of Manufacturing( Discrete, Process and REM) with flow diagrams.
In this blog, backflushing(Receipt only) of Handling units from REM into EWM S/4 will be looked into greater details, the process flow and configuration.
The below process flow diagram is taken from above blog with a small correction. IM posting is triggered by 131 movement type, SAP needs to correct the process flow where 101 is depicted.
Cancelling backflushed Handling Units
Cancellation of backflushes of assemblies with the corresponding handling units can also be conducted. The cancellation is non-document-related for the handling unit. In other words, the HUs are canceled without reference to the backflush document for repetitive manufacturing. When a non-document-related cancellation takes place, the system re-explodes the bill of material and reverses the movement direction. In other words, the system posts negative component quantities.
This is how Handling units can be leveraged( Received and Consumed) from Repetitive manufacturing from Embedded EWM 1909.
In future blogs, I will write more on manufacturing EWM interface!
