Warehouse Controlling - SAP WM

Warehouse Management (WM) is integrated with the SAP Logistics Information System (LIS) to support the analysis of the physical flow of quantities and workload in the warehouse.

Warehouse Controlling evaluates and reduces the extensive information from Warehouse Management to a few essential performance measurements, thus allowing an analysis of weak areas with the aid of graphics. The evaluations for Warehouse Controlling are integrated with the Inventory Controlling menu as standard analyses. These analyses are based on statistical databases in Warehouse Controlling – called ”information structures” – into which important, upto- date performance measures are written directly from the warehousing applications. This data can be used for performance planning purposes.

Warehouse Controlling

All five standard analyses for Warehouse Controlling are based on data that is updated to the information structures S090 and S091.

The following five standard analyses for Warehouse Management are available in Inventory Controlling:

  • Picking/Putaway: For this analysis, the system displays the total weight and quantities of goods that were putaway, picked or returned.
  • Quantity flow: This analysis displays the quantities and weights that were moved in the warehouse. It also includes information about frequency and the average time expired between transfer requirement or delivery creation and transfer order creation.
  • Material putaway/picking: This analysis is based on the putaway and picking of a material or several materials and includes quantity and weight information for a specific time period.
  • Material flow: Quantity, weight and time required for material movements are considered in this analysis.
  • Movement types: This analysis is based on movement type and the storage types into or from which putaway or picking of stock takes place.

The following table provides an overview of the events that are updated by the information structures S090 and S091 once the update has been activated.
