A Look at the SAP EWM with SAP S/4HANA Certification Exam

Extended warehouse management (EWM) is used to efficiently manage inventory in distribution centers and to support warehouse processes.


It allows companies to control the movement of goods into, out of, and within the warehouse to fulfill customer orders—but you probably already know this, assuming you’re here because you’re looking to become certified in EWM with SAP. If you’re preparing for exam C_S4EWM_2020, you’ve come to the right place! In this post, we’ll give you some background on the test.


About the C_S4EWM Certification Exam

The EWM certification exam is intended to verify that candidates have the necessary EWM knowledge required for becoming a consultant, and it is relevant for both embedded and decentralized EWM implementations with SAP S/4HANA. If you don’t have previous project experience, worry not! This isn’t a prerequisite, though it is recommended to combine SAP education courses and hands-on experience to optimize your success, since the exam will test your ability to apply the knowledge gained in training.


The exam consists of multiple-choice questions where you must select either one, two, or three correct answers. You are required to select all the correct answers to a question. Topics covered on the exam include:

  • Warehouse structure, resource management, and EWM master data
  • Inbound processes (value-added services, cross-docking, and quality management)
  • Outbound processes (wave management, cross-docking, and production integration)
  • Cross topics (labor management, exception handling, batches, and serial numbers)
  • System integration, master data, and delivery document customizing
  • Process- and layout-oriented storage control
  • Warehouse process types, warehouse task creation, and strategies
  • Internal processing (physical inventory and replenishment)
  • Warehouse management, shipping, and receiving
  • Warehouse order and warehouse order creation rules

To pass this 80-question online exam, you’ll need to score 63% or higher. You’re prohibited from using reference materials during the certification, so make sure to prepare thoroughly, whether that means you take part in various EWM courses, review SAP’s EWM learning journey, or study with our EWM certification guide.
