Catch Weight Management in ECC Article Master

Former Member

Hi All

We are currently in the process of implementing EWM. We would like to use EWM's Catch Weight Management feature. We do not intend to activate ECC CW.

In order for us for use CW at EWM level, Catch Weight needs to be activated in ECC article master by setting "Parallel Unit of Measure".

However, SAP does not allow us to do this (by default) for existing articles.

One option is to create new CW articles. Unfortunately, this is not something the business will accept.

There is a workaround which is to implement BAdI: Check Changes Made to Units of Measure.

However, we are nervous about implementing this BAdI given the unknowns and financial implications it may have. No one in SAP has been able to give us a definitive answer.    

It must be noted that will needs to be done for articles at a new warehouse which will not have any valuation.

Please advise.

Reply from Jinoy - Any specific reason as why you don't want CW to be activated at ECC side ? just trying to understand rationale behind it ?

Reply from Jinoy - Can we create a test in Quality environment and perform steps to activate same and see if its working as expected from process side as well.

Reply from Jinoy   Since these products are not valuated i suppose we will have least  financial impacts .We  have to  ensure from inventory angle if its working as expected.

Worth giving a try  SA , lets analyze as how it goes ?

Thanks
