SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM)
Accelerating value with optimized and automated warehouse operations
Keeping a warehouse running smoothly evidently depends on transparent and accurate inventory – and wise and flexible resource management. In addition, human resources and equipment assets have to be improved constantly, with the help of techniques as interleaving tasks and implementing controls for space and equipment usage. With SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM), these objectives can be met.
To contribute effectively to the corporate bottom line, warehouse operations have to be automated and optimized – starting from goods receipt, through storage, to packing and shipping.
The impact of SAP EWM
With SAP EWM it is possible to orchestrate inbound and outbound processes and all storage or retrieval operations in between. By integrating warehouse management with the production management and delivery processing power of SAP enterprise software, it is feasible to keep planning and execution tightly meshed.
Another point is to consistently organize and monitor goods movement triggered by processes for procurement, shipping, production supply/receipt, quality management, transportation management, and foreign trade compliance. Through SAP EWM the full visibility into inventory and logistics is given, in addition with advanced support for special services like the creation of kits and modules and comprehensive analytics for strategic reporting and operational optimization.
SAP EWM also includes functions for transportation cross-docking, import and export quality management, picking from goods receipt, and push deployment. Another factor is the readiness to implement the latest technologies for pick-by-voice, augmented reality and radio-frequency identification (RFID).
