SAP offers two warehouse management systems
(WMS) to support this: the first one, SAP WM application,
was first introduced as a submodule of the Materials Management
application within SAP R/3. The second is SAP EWM, developed
as a component of SAP Supply Chain Management. SAP EWM is
similar to SAP WM functionality, but with more flexibility
in building objects like warehouse structure, picking, put
away, and more.
With SAP S/4HANA 1610, we are introducing
Extended Warehouse Management integrated into the S/4HANA
core. This is one more deployment option, and not a replacement
of the decentralized EWM, that definitely is and will be
a valid option.

As manufacturers need to shift from mass production
into mass personalization, this brings many challenges from
a quality perspective as well. With SAP S/4HANA 1610, QM
is coming integrated in the core of the application, supporting
all processes in quality engineering and quality improvement.
Throughout SAP S/4HANA, quality management
data and processes have been streamlined and integrated.
And of course, we have end-users like quality manager or
quality inspector in mind when we built new applications.
Those apps increase the usability for the end users, and
the efficiency of the overall processes.
