Connection with external WMS - WM or Lean WM?

Dear all,

I have the following case:

SAP S/4 Hana system is handling the IM and WM is handled from external system. The client received electronic files for Goods receipts and wants to post them in the system. Then the actual GR must be performed in the external WM system. Based on the actual GR in WM system in SAP we must handle differences that may occur. I am thinking of one way to handle this issue:

1. SAP IM and WM with basic customizing and one bin. GR creates Transfer Requirement and when WM replies on the actual GR to perform TO to total section of the Warehouse. With this way client will be able to handle differences that may occur in SAP

Is there another way to handle this? Can this be done with Lean WM or inboind/ outbound deliveries in order to avoid implementation of WM that is more difficult for end user to handle?

Best Regards

Information provided by you is very limited and you need to look for all the possible scenario. (e.g. Receipt from external vendor short / excess scenario / Receipt of material from another plant short / excess scenario)

in my opinion you can go ahead without WM however you need to see other process Goods issue as well to decide

For a simple operation I suggest go with below logic
