SAP EWM – Expected Good Receipts

Expected receipts are used to create inbound deliveries. You can also create a goods receipt in the EWM system without an inbound delivery.

Advantages of Using a Good Receipt

This process occurs in the EWM system only.

If your ERP system is down, you can still execute the expected goods receipt in EWM. An expected goods receipt is based on the data in production order, so it can be used as a preview of the goods receipt.

This process requires two documents to be used in the EWM system, which are −

  • Notification Expected goods receipt
  • Expected goods receipt

These documents can be created and transferred using the following two methods −

  • Push Scenario − The process is triggered in ERP by executing the report /SPE/INB_EGR_CREATE.

  • Pull Scenario − The process is triggered in EWM by executing the report /SCWM/ERP_DLV_DELETE.
