The Reputation of SAP WM

Hi WM expert!

Currently our client is considering to implement WM and eWM module.

It seems to be their requirement is very simple.  They just want to mange the stock by storage bin level in the system.

Currently all paper work is so much pain for them to handle.

By proposing the SAP WM, I am considering following points

1 . The effectiveness of WM

2.  What is business returns

3.  The Shortcome of WM

Especially #3 is very important, as clients managements and our internal consultant all says SAP WM is not good.

But they never tell how bad it is..

I would like to have your opinion.  Maybe agree or disagree.

Thank you in advance for your kindly reply!

      SAP will not develop any new functionality for WM in future. It will remain as is. So if you growth in future you want to consider that.

    Hi Jiro,

    I am not commenting about which one is better WM or EWM.

    of-course, EWM is new Warehouse management module so it have some added functionality to manage and movements of goods within Internal and outside of warehouse premises.

    Below is the functionality related differences:

    Hi Jiro,

    I would suggest WM if they want to maintain the stock at bin level and without much features. EWM is used for the warehouses complex requirements. WM is not bad, it depends on the requirement we choose a solution.
