SAP Extended Warehouse Management EWM 9.0
With supply chains being adversely affected by market uncertainties, companies are facing greater challenges in managing their logistics environments. With SAP® software, you can plan, source, procure, store, transport, and deliver products all on a single, unified platform. The SAP Extended Warehouse Management application, an integral part of the SAP Supply Chain Management application, addresses advanced warehouse management functions and processes. It helps you achieve higher process and stock visibility, better warehouse planning, and more efficient distribution and storage processes.
The SAP EWM fits perfectly to complex and big warehouses with fully or partially automated equipment. On the other side it is also a perfect platform for less complex warehouses operating with Radio Frequency on a smaller amount of processes.
SAP EWM also contains an interface to external systems (warehouse control units), allowing you to integrate automated putaway and storage-retrieval systems, forklift control systems, conveyor systems, and other automated equipment for all product movements using standard application linking and embedding processing. A material flow system allows a direct connection to automatic storage and retrieval systems. You simply connect a programmable logic controller to SAP EWM. You can use this material flow system to control movement of handling units in automated systems, to activate or deactivate conveyor segments, to group conveyor segments, or to activate or deactivate correspondence at various levels. The warehouse monitor gives you visibility for monitoring communication points, current and previous flow, and the complete flow for a handling unit. SAP EWM gives you full control over warehouse processes, managing movements within the warehouse from the point of goods receipt to goods issue and extending to the yard from the time a trailer checks in all the way through to product checkout. It features the advanced functionality for slotting and rearrangement that keeps your products stored in optimum locations and the labor and resource management functionality that helps you manage your warehouse personnel and measure their effectiveness and efficiency. SAP EWM also gives you the tools you need to improve your warehouse efficiency. For example, when an exception to the normal process occurs, SAP EWM provides the functionality you need to keep the exception from becoming a major issue.
The application extends your real-time visibility and control of warehouse operations. It can transform your operations into an adaptive fulfillment supply chain in which communities of customers, suppliers, and partners share knowledge and resources to adjust intelligently to market conditions. With the ability to respond faster to changes in supply and demand, you increase your competitiveness and ultimately improve your bottom line.
SAP EWM offers support beyond the classical intralogistics. Here are some examples: The integrated Yard Management, Value Added Services, Cross Docking, Labor Management, Auto-ID-Handling and much more.
A central warehouse monitor in SAP EWM gives warehouse personnel complete and up-to-date visibility into all warehouse activity. The warehouse monitor displays information on picking, putaway, physical inventory, resource management, warehouse stocks, or any warehouse activity. Users can set up the monitor to show only the business processes that interest them. They can also use the monitor as an interactive tool for assigning, initiating, and controlling work. The warehouse cockpit improves user productivity with real-time or auto-refresh graphical displays, enabling instant access to the big picture on how a single process or many processes are running within predefined areas. A graphical warehouse layout allows you to define the structure of the warehouse and yard using a 2D graphical tool and can display resources and status information. Additionally, this enables navigation from graphics to related information.
