EHS management prerequisites

I have read some of the introductory links posted by Christopher, and I have an easy ( i think) question.

When a company decides they want to purchase SAP EHS Management, what other modules are a pre-requisite, or a given, in order to use it?

For example, if a company wants EHS Management, would MM and SD be a part of their purchase or a prerequisite?

Use of SAP EHS Management

SAP EHS Management is integrated very well in the SAP ERP processes. Normally it is not used as a "standalone" application/module. It support companies to be compliant regarding chemical products. The main integration points are:

  1. SAP MM
  2. SAP DMS
  3. SAP SD
  4. SAP PP
  5. SAP QM
  6. SAP PM

    Dear Scott

    to my understanding (I am not ! a SAP license expert) you (as the company) is buying a license to use SAP ERP. Part of SAP ERP are: MM.....; If you would like now to use SAP EHS Management you need on top License. So the story is (to my knowledge): first you need license SAP ERP and then on the top license EHS Management (please refer to discussion in SAP EHS Management for Beginners; a SAP EHS Management license contains now "more" in comparison to "history".

    If you check sap help: hierarchy should be clear: only for completeness:

    SAP ERP Central Components => Logistics => Environment, Health and Safety (on the same level are: MM, SD .... etc.)

    From technical point of view:

    SAP MM: this module is used to create the "Material". We need the material in many contexts of SAP EHS. You can use SAP EHS Management without having the material; but then there is nearly no integration possible with logistic processes as these are material driven

    SAP DMS: you need this (or similar option) to store reports; if you do not want to store reports (WWI reports) then you need no set up of SAP DMS; but as SAP DMS is part of SAP ERP ...

    SAP SD: this is the next important normal used integration option. Here we have: SDS distribution, use

    if DG topic etc.

    SAP PP => e.g. BOMBOS interface; Recipe Management ....

    SAP QM: there are something liek max 5 threads in this FORUM discussing the interface EHS <=> QM => rarely used

    SAP PM: mainly used in IHS ...

    I hope that you may be have now a better picture about that.

    Hello Scot

    EHSM is not a stand alone component , i will be the part of SAP Logistics , if you want to implement the EHSM , you need to buy the license of SAP Logistics Module in which all components like MM ,SD,PP,PM and EHS..etc will come (Refer below screen shot)

    if you want to implement the new EHSM New components like Product compliance ,Risk Assessment or Incident Management , you need to purchase additional license for these components(EHSM CE 4.0)

    Hope you are getting , if any questions pl . ping back
