How ERP Movement Type is being determined from EWM


Could you explain me, how ERP Movement is being determined from EWM goods movement posting?

For example, when I upload the stock, ERP movement is determined at 561. When we do, Goods Receipt, ERP movement is determined as 101. How this movements are controlled or being determined.

    there are some systemtables, starting with "/SCWM/TIMBWA*", which are being used for the determination.

    • Hi,

      movement types are not really my area of expertise. But 711/712 is the standard movement type for physical inventory differences (so that is the only time these are used from EWM). If you say that they want to use 9xx for other materials, I assume that means these are non-standard, customer specific movement types. Then you can look in Customizing under "Interfaces --> ERP Integration --> Goods Movements".

    Hi Sathish Kumar Bachu

    Movement type table is SCWM/TIMBWA but if you want to change type type, you will use Badi /SCWM/EX_ERP_GOODSMVT_EXT. method name /SCWM/IF_EX_ERP_GOODSMVT~CHANGE_MATDOC.

    Best regards.

    In IM_MM there are other movement types for inventory differences, such as 701-718 for clearing of blocked stock, quality stock, etc. Can these also be used by EWM if, for example, blocked stock is to be cleared and movement type 718 is to be determined in the material document?
    Or EWM can only use the two 711, 712 by default and the others must be defined as customer-defined in Customizing?

    Thanks a lot
