The main flows covered are:

Inbound processes

Goods receipt and Putaway

Production supply

Staging of production components (integrated with SAP PP)


Pick or Pick&Pack of items to be shipped

Inventory counts

Inventory counts and any other physical movement of items

Stock movements

Track all internal physical flows

Inventory tracking by pallet or other container number

Featuring additional tools

SAP WM also provides extensions for managing transshipment flows (cross docking with SAP LE-DCK), value-added operations (labeling, re-packing, marking, etc. with SAP LE-VAS), Task and resources management and optimization (TRM) yard and door management (with SAP LE-YM).
