embedded EWM: setup of BP, SCU, location

Hi all,

we are setting up embedded EWM (S/4HANA 1610). Do business partner, supply chain unit and location have to be set up manually as there is no CIF?

Thank you for your answer.

Kind regards

    Hello Annette,

    it is correct that CIF is no more required in S/4 for embedded EWM.

    The most important objects here are the business partners (e.g. ship from/vendor in inbound deliveries or ship to/customer in outbound deliveries ). Here the customer/vendor business partners are reused in EWM. As CVI (customer vendor integration is used in S/4, a BP should automatically have a relation to a vendor/customer.

    The only objects you need to set up manually (but this was also before like this is the supply chain unit for the warehouse which you assign to your warehouse).

    Best regards

    Markus

    Have a look on the SAP OSSNOTE 2347770, Gothrough with the pdf document "Basic Settings for SAP EWM in SAP S/4HANA" attached along with this note

    This will guide you with initial setup with detail about what to create and what not (e.g. Business prartner, SCU)
