SAP EWM - Master Data

In the ERP system, you have master data which includes the details of the customer, vendor, plant and shipping point which are also used by the SCM. At the time of data transfer using CIM, this data is copied to the corresponding to SCM master data. For example, the location.

The master data that is transferred from the ERP system to the SCM system consists of fields like material description, unit of measures, weight volume details, etc. The product and location master data is used in all the applications of the SCM.

An integration model is created to perform data transfer, you can define master data type and selection criteria to find the material master data. Once this model is created you need to save and execute the model. To perform data transfer to the SCM system, you have to activate the model.
