Effects on Existing Data
If you import the IS-CWM 605 software and activate the business function /CWM/CM_2: CWM, Completion of Architecture and New Processes, you can access their dataset (master and movement data), and use the Financial Accounting, Controlling and Materials Management components in a CWM system more or less as in the standard system.
If you use a CWM release with the components Logistics Inventory Management Engine (LIME) and Inventory Accounting (Fin-BAC-INV), data migration is essential.
This concerns customers who have activated the following business function of the old architecture:
- /CWM/BF Catch Weight Management
- and possibly /CWM/APPL_INTEGRATION_1 CWM, Innovations in Logistics and Accounting.
You can only activate the business functions provided with enhancement package 5 for Catch Weight Management if you have already carried out the data migration. Only once the migration is successful can you activate the business functions /CWM/CM_1, /CWM/CM_2 and /CWM/FMP that are based on the new architecture. As of enhancement package 5, migration tools are available that enable a straightforward step by step migration to the new architecture.
1) Install enhancement package IS-CWM 605
The migration program is available immediately after you have installed EHP5 without having to make any additional activation.
2) Carry out migration
Using the migration tools, you can migrate the data of the old architecture, in particular the Logistics Inventory Management Engine (LIME) and Inventory Accounting (FIN-BAC-INV) components.
3) Activate business function /CWM/CM_2
Following successful migration, you have to first activate the new architecture with the business function /CWM/CM_1 CWM, Innovations in Logistics and Accounting. Having activated this business function, the Logistics Inventory Management Engine (LIME) and Inventory Accounting (FIN-BAC-INV) components are no longer available in Catch Weight Management IS-CWM 605. Inventory valuation and management is now done using the corresponding standard components.
You can then activate business function /CWM/CM_2: CWM, Completion of Architecture and New Processes, and use the Financial Accounting, Controlling and Materials Management components in a CWM system more or less as in the standard system.
If you have to migrate data, you are advised to plan an appropriate migration project.
Within this project you have to note that in subareas there can be differences of function between the old architecture and the new, and with this in mind you have to carry out the relevant change management, for example for new or changed transactions and processes. An example of this is the discontinuation of FAI* transactions in Inventory Accounting.
Customers who are planning a migration are advised to get in contact with SAP Solution Management for Catch Weight Management at an early stage.
