Delivery based production integration in SAP embedded EWM with error message in transaktion CO15

Dear all,

I am currently building up an embedded EWM on S/4HANA 1909 with the delivery based production integration.
I created all the master data and would like to test the first production order. I created one and would like to post the goods removal in CO15. On the view for the goods movement I put in all the relevant information manual and at the end I got the following warning/error message:

No embedded EWM possible as switch is off
Message no. RM_EWM001 

I do not understand where the issue is comming from. I debugged it already and found out, that the system is checking some global parameter G_COWB_CTRL-EWM_SYNC_POST but it is initial, so the message is raised. The global variable is set to " " already during the start of the transaction with the structure P_CONTROL and later on it is not changed.

The Message is raised in the following Program/Function/Line:


--> IF iv_ewm_sync_post = abap_true.

Can someone help me, why the system is thinking, that this process is not allowes and where do I find this switch? Or is the delivery based production integration not available anymore with an embedded EWM?

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Timm Mörsheim

    Is it link to repetitive manufacture ?

    I guess the below settings missing

    Could you try either disable synchronous in WH level settings or include addition settings for synchronous settings from the below link.

    Customizing for Extended Warehouse Management under Interfaces ->ERP Integration Goods Movements.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    • Hi Ajit,

      thanks for the hint. I already found this also, but I do not use the repetitive manufacturing, either the synchronous posting in the embedded EWM is activated. Nevertheless I try it to change the profiles and create a new production order, but it is not helping. I still got the same issue and the variable in the program is still on empty:

      EWM _SYNC_POST = ""

      There must be something else inside any profile, where this issue is comming from. Maybe it is also a bug in this case ;-)

      kind regards,
