SAP Waste Management Configuration/Implementation Guide

Hi experts!

Does anyone have or know of a Configuration or Implementation Guide for SAP Waste Management module?

We have only found the building block guide from SAP and we wish to know if there other documents for implementing this module.

Thanks and best regards,

Fernando Montenegro

    Hi Fernando.

    You can use SAP help, I have to admit that Waste Management Best Practice isn't clear enough if you don't have a previous knowledge.

    The IMG implementation guide has all the info that you need, if you don't understand any points, just ask?

    Try to define the scope of your Waste management implementation:

    - Waste codes and properties of wastes are entered as specifications in the Basic Data and Tools component.

    - Which partner type would you need (waste generator, waste disposer, transporter)

    - Are you going to use WWI for disposal document?

    - A waste is the link between a specification and a material, and as a material you have to configure it en MM, WM,...

    - The integration with MM only work for create purchase order, if you are going to need purchase requisition, you will have to program.

      Hi Martin!

      Contracts are located in MM. Contracts aren't part of SAP EHS Waste Management scope.

      For more replies, I suggest you open a thread with this very same question.

      Thanks and best regards!

    Hi Fernando, I tried to contact you but it´s impossible if you are not following me 😔

    We are trying to decide if Waste Management is the optimal solution for our client.

    It´s difficult to access the right document in this moment and I think may be you could help us.

    Thanks in advance!

    • Dear Eliana

      I hope that you are not confused. But last hint as mentioned by Edward should help you. But I "struggle" a little bit if I read between your explanations. May be I try it different:

      If you have a SAP ERP up and running with MM-PM-LE-SD modules there are a number of reasons why you should check if EHS WM is an alternative. But you need to understand how SAP EHS WM support companies. Main topic is: to be "compliant". If you (or your company) generate "Waste" (in the sense of chemistry type of waste) you need to make your that you fulfill the legal demands (and there are many). If you or your company is really handling "Waste" (of chemicals) then you can fulfill the legal demands using EHS WM (and you support on the top your internal processes).

      It is "hard" work only to us MM, SD and other processes rto make the company "as compliant" as if you would use on the top EHS WM.

      Therefore: without any experience in SAP EHS you need 6 months (and this only to make sure that anybody as part of the team does "really" understand the EHS WM processes (EHS BD, EHS SAF, SAP MM etc. etc.) which you need to consider.

      If you need more support: please start a new thread.



      PS: There is a "small" enhancement of SAP EHS WM coming with EnhPack3 (refer to OSS note of Edward; but: Enhancement Packages provide only "on" top functionality (which could help clearly)

    Hi Fernando,

    what about waste disposal contracts?

    Are they "representable" in SAP EHS Waste Management, too?

    • Hi Martin.

      The waste disposal contract has the economic aspects in a MM contract, but the enviromental issues is in the waste approval, here you inform the partners (Waste Generator, Waste Disposer, Waste Transporter, Authority), the waste code (EWC in Europe), limits in easte quantity,...
