Integrating the R/3 Warehouse Management (WM) module with mobile data entry devices and external warehouse management systems is made possible by two interfaces — Mobile Data Entry (MM-MOB), which enables mobile entry and transfer of data to and from SAP, and Warehouse Control Unit (WM-LSR), which enables the sending and receiving of information between the warehouse control units in the SAP environment and automated storage and retrieval systems, fork-lift control systems, picking systems, and carousels. These two interfaces open up a vast array of application scenarios. This article teaches developers the things you need to understand in order to implement an MM-MOB- or WM-LSR-based application scenario.
