What is SAP S/4HANA Stock Room Management?

With SAP S/4HANA 1909, SAP released another option for customers who today use warehouse management to manage smaller warehouse processes. With SAP Stock Room Management, basic warehouse processes from the existing SAP LE-WM applications can continue to be used, but without the advanced functions of SAP EWM.

Stock Room Management allows customers to upgrade to SAP S/4HANA without having to perform a complete WM transformation. This will enable them to continue their already implemented logistics processes beyond 2025. The license is included in the S/4HANA Enterprise Management component.

What does this mean for customers currently using SAP LE-WM?

Customers who migrate to SAP S/4HANA can continue to use the warehouse management functions after the migration within the scope of compatibility. However, since the license to use the scope of compatibility expires at the end of 2025, customers will have to choose either an embedded EWM or the simple warehouse management functions of SAP S/4HANA Stock Room Management. SAP S/4HANA Stock Room Management functions include important warehouse management functions, but not all functions from the warehouse management compatibility scope.

Migration to S/4 HANA

What are the differences to SAP LE-WM?

Warehouse management is part of the ERP Central Component (ECC), whereas stock room management is implemented specifically for SAP S/4HANA. Although both components are based on the same data model and Stock Room Management covers many processes in the same way as Warehouse Management, Stock Room Management is only oriented towards basic warehouse processes.

Some of the functions that could previously be used with LE-WM will no longer be offered in the future:

Task & Resource Management
Value Added Services
Yard Management
Cross Docking
Wave Management

Decentralized Warehouse Management


Basically, it is a digitalized organization and management of warehouses to ensure an efficient flow of all logistics processes. SAP WM provides flexible and automatic support for the processing of all goods movements and the management of the stocks in the warehouse.

Through complete SAP integration, transactions from other SAP components lead to open activities in SAP WM and thus to movements in the warehouse


Functions of SAP LE-WM:

  • Defining and managing complex structures in your own warehouse
  • Fast and easy processing of goods movements from goods receipt, stock transfer to goods issue
  • Modern storage and retrieval procedures

Will Stock Room Management be further developed?

SAP does not intend to make such investments in SAP S/4HANA Stock Room Management. SAP EWM is the strategic product for warehouse management operations. SAP S/4HANA Stock Room Management is focused solely on supporting existing customers with their currently used functions.

How does Flexus support you thereby?

Our add-on solutions can continue to be used without problems even after switching to S/4HANA Stock Room Management. All applications are certified and already S/4HANA-Ready. Nevertheless, it is worth checking new requirements or extending existing applications before switching to S/4HANA, in order to start with suitable applications afterwards.

More Information


The target group are SAP customers who want to map their warehouse processes in SAP WM and continue to do so under SAP S/4 HANA. Especially simple and small warehouses, which would be overloaded by the complexity of SAP EWM, are particularly suitable for SAP Stock Room Management.

However, if new functionalities such as an MFS connection or multilevel transports are to be implemented in your company or are planned for the near future - there is no way around SAP EWM.

We would be happy to support you in finding the right strategy for your company and implementing it successfully.


In any case, we recommend a detailed analysis of your current logistics processes as well as the effects that need to be considered when switching to S/4HANA. We would be pleased to support you in the analysis of your previous processes and help you find the optimal path for your individual solution.
