  3. 3. Kitting with SAP EWM: Objectives This presentation provides a functional overview of the kitting process options available in SAP Extended Warehouse Management. The kitting process is illustrated by means of examples performed on a SAP SCM EWM system configured through standard BC sets. By attending this presentation you will have a clear understanding of the kitting process in SAP EWM and its fundamental applications. KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 3

  5. 5. Kitting with SAP EWM: Key concepts Kitting is the process of building kit products by assembling their component materials (raw materials, semi-finished products or finished products). In EWM the kitting process can take place in two forms: • Kit-to-Stock: when kitting is performed as a simple, streamlined manufacturing process with reference to an ERP production order or initiated through an EWM VAS order and the kit is put away in the warehouse. • Kit-to-Order: when kitting is performed in relation to a sales order for the kit. The disassembly of a kit into its component materials is called "reverse kitting". KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 5
  6. 6. Kitting with SAP EWM: Key concepts The bill of material is not stored in EWM: the kit structure is managed in EWM either through a VAS order (Kit-to-Stock) or through item level hierarchy in the Outbound Delivery Order (Kit-to-Order). Nested kitting (kit within a kit) is not currently supported but complex kit structures can be used in combination with the SCM iPPE when e.g. a sales order is created from CRM. Kits are physically assembled in a work center apart from the "kitting during picking" scenario where the picker is assembling the kit in the aisle (or no assembly is required).

  7. 7. Kitting with SAP EWM: Key concepts Process initiator Kitting flow type ERP Prod. Order Kit-to-Stock EWM process enablers VAS order is essential and automatically created when ERP leads, manually created when EWM leads. Post kit and components according to VAS order (backflush is possible). Pack and create putaway tasks for the kit (with or without POSC). EWM VAS Order ODO item hierarchy replicates BOM and kits are generated based on that. ERP Sales Order Kit-to-Order CRM Sales Order Kitting Work Center execution VAS order not mandatory (only needed for printing assembly instructions and for tracking duration/effort). Kitting during picking is also possible through pick-HU. Generate kit according to ODO item hierarchy. Kit dummy item is added automatically to pick-HU in kitting during picking. Create staging tasks for kit and components (with or without POSC). KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 7
  8. 8. Examples NB: in the following examples the ROD storage location is called 009I and the AFS storage location is called 009O. KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 8
  9. 9. Kitting with SAP EWM: Kit-to-Stock Kit-to-Stock initiated through a production order (1) The kit product is exploded according to the BOM into its component materials A and B. KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 9
  10. 10. Kitting with SAP EWM: Kit-to-Stock Kit-to-Stock initiated through a production order (2) The release of the production order automatically creates one outbound delivery for the components (delivery type HOD). And one inbound delivery for the kit (delivery type HID). Both deliveries are replicated to EWM via qRFC. KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 10
  11. 11. Kitting with SAP EWM: Kit-to-Stock Kit-to-Stock initiated through a production order (3) In the EWM system the two deliveries are linked to a VAS order that is automatically created. Packaging specifications with a kitting level must be maintained for this. KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 11
  12. 12. Kitting with SAP EWM: Kit-to-Stock Kit-to-Stock initiated through a production order (4) Warehouse tasks are created against the outbound delivery to supply the components to the kitting work center. The picking WTs are confirmed in RF (in this example the WOCR is configured for automatic pick-HU creation at WT creation): KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 12
  13. 13. Kitting with SAP EWM: Kit-to-Stock Kit-to-Stock initiated through a production order (5) At the kitting work center the components are goods-issued, the goods receipt for the kit is posted, the kit is packed into a new HU and the putaway WT is created for the same. KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 13
  14. 14. Kitting with SAP EWM: Kit-to-Stock Kit-to-Stock initiated through a production order (6) The putaway task for the kit is confirmed using RF, completing the process. On the ERP side, three material documents are posted reflecting the consumption of the component materials and the GR and stock type change of the kit from ROD to AFS. KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 14
  15. 15. Kitting with SAP EWM: Kit-to-Stock Kit-to-Stock initiated through a VAS order in EWM A similar Kit-to-Stock process can be initiated in EWM by manually creating a VAS order. This can be done either by referencing the ERP BOM or by listing the kit components (as shown here). Saving the VAS order generates one ODO for the components and one inbound delivery for the kit, which are replicated to the ERP system via qRFC. KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 15
  16. 16. Kitting with SAP EWM: Kit-to-Order Kit-to-Order initiated through an ERP sales order (1) In the Kit-to-Order process a sales order for the kit is created (in ERP or CRM) and delivered. The outbound delivery is replicated to EWM via qRFC, carrying the BOM structure. KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 16
  17. 17. Kitting with SAP EWM: Kit-to-Order Kit-to-Order initiated through an ERP sales order (2) The kit material in the ODO is not relevant for picking and the kit structure is represented by a level hierarchy among items. In this example the ODO is relevant for VAS so that a VAS order is created and a kitting work center is determined. KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 17
  18. 18. Kitting with SAP EWM: Kit-to-Order Kit-to-Order initiated through an ERP sales order (3) At the kitting work center the kits are generated based on the ODO item hierarchy and a dummy item is added for the kit header in the pick-HU. KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 18
  19. 19. Kitting with SAP EWM: Kit-to-Order Kit-to-Order initiated through an ERP sales order (4) Once the goods issue is posted for the ODO, a material document is posted in the ERP to reflect the consumption of the kit and the components, and the "temporary" goods receipt of the kit (movement type 521, configurable in ERP). KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 19
  20. 20. Kitting with SAP EWM: Reverse Kitting Reverse Kitting (1) Reverse kitting can only start from EWM by manually creating a VAS order, either with reference to a BOM or by listing the components. Saving the VAS order generates one ODO for the kit and one inbound delivery for the components, which are later replicated to the ERP system via qRFC. KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 20
  21. 21. Kitting with SAP EWM: Reverse Kitting Reverse Kitting (2) At the kitting work center the kit is disassembled and the goods receipt is posted for the components, which can be then packed and put away. KITTING W ITH SAP EW M – FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW 21
  22. 22. Kitting with SAP EWM: Reverse Kitting Reverse Kitting (3) In the ERP system three material documents have been posted to reflect the consumption of the dismantled kit, the goods receipt and stock type change of the components from ROD to AFS.
