SAP EWM in retail Environment

Dear EWM gurus,

Can you please guide me  some links for SAP EWM in a retail Environment for both Inbound and Outbound Flows.

How do we use MFS-EWM integration in retail environment ? 

Thanks and regards,

    Hello Aloka,

    in a retail environment performance is is a critical topic due to the high troughput volume. The following notes will provide some guidance:

    • 1423066 - Optimization of the performance in EWM
    • 1896480 - High Throughput Processes - Best Practices (MFS specific)
    • 1896197 - Sizing of Extended Warehouse Management - Best Practices

    Regards,

    Regarding inbound/outbound processing, if you run an SAP ECC Retail system you probably have activated Merchandise Distribution functionality in ECC.

    If this is the case, there's specific EWM help documentation on this topic.

    Merchandise Distribution - Cross-Docking (CD) - SAP Library

    Regarding EWM-MFS, I don't see any Retail specific customizing/functionality implications. It seems to me that it depends more on the MHE (Material Handling Equipment) and physical process characteristics than whether it's a Retail system.


    Hope this helps.
