SAP Extended Warehouse Management EWM 7.0 EHP 2
The broad-ranging product portfolio of SSI Schaefer is rounded off with innovative IT solutions based on our own standards as well as those of SAP technology. As a strategic SAP Service Partner, we can offer you a comprehensive package of solutions for IT-based projects that extends from consultancy on process optimisation and technical IT hardware components to the implementation and the customisation of logistical SAP products - all from a single source. Depending on your warehouse concept, we offer you various services and solutions to realise your ambitions and bring about successful project conclusions. We use either the SAP EWM or SAP LES/TRM logistics modules according to the task in question.
In-depth SAP consulting
Our consulting services range from in-depth consultancy on process optimisation, including any manual procedures involved, as well as looking at the product spectrum required; we also offer our expertise in the selection of the relevant IT hardware, such as servers, wireless components and printers. In addition, our consulting involves providing objective advice in the planning and implementation of logistics IT while taking account of parallel and downstream processes and the impact on related ERP modules – a complete range of services suitable for both retrofit projects as well as brand new logistics systems. For instance, our SAP specialists will show you whether and how individual material flow and control functions can be integrated into SAP, what technological aspects need to be considered, which interfaces are required and where connections are possible that do not require media conversions and interfaces, and they will also develop the sustainable, future-proof migration and IT concepts required.
Many years of experience with complex SAP projects across a wide range of sectors have given us the opportunity to develop a broad base of special and customised solutions: we have already implemented more than 300 turnkey logistics systems as a general contractor. As a SAP partner, we support not just SMEs but also global players in the selection, introduction and commissioning of SAP products – areas in which SSI Schaefer has already demonstrated its abilities in numerous successful projects. We offer you the security of having on board an experienced and SAP-approved implementation partner possessing the latest IT skills and technical expertise. We can provide references from all the best known sectors, including retail, industry, automotive, food production, 3PL, paper and packaging, frozen products and the pharmaceutical and chemical industries.
It goes without saying that in addition to manual and semi-automated solutions, we also implement IT solutions for fully-automated warehouses. We will also tailor logistical SAP products to your requirements according to your warehouse concept and the level of automation on your premises.
Efficient logistics combines a plethora of highly complex individual steps to produce a perfectly coordinated flow of data and material. What is important to us is the overall customer solution, not the individual software product. This is why we analyse and provide objective consultancy on the best possible way of integrating SAP systems and modules into intralogistic processes. As part of our value-oriented consultancy, we provide you with targeted support in the choice of the suitable software solution that takes account of your logistics requirements and IT strategies. Together, we will draw up and evaluate the criteria in order to arrive at objective decisions that will stand the test of time. The structure and the interaction between the processes are at the heart of every project. In the course of an all-encompassing review, we analyse and optimise your logistical functions with the aim of establishing resilient SCM processes for you, your customers and suppliers through efficient vertical and horizontal integration, which may even extend beyond the scope of the system itself.
Added value is not created by the simple interfacing of various types of technology and automation – it is the specific design, technological integration and configuration of the functions to provide universal SAP ERP processes that support our assertion that we implement first-class
solutions. If you wish, we can carry out the overall implementation of the SAP solution, from initial system configuration through end-to-end customisation to the development of individual add-ons and the creation of all the system interfaces necessary to satisfy your project-specific requirements.
We develop all our SAP projects using the SAP Solution Manager in order to ensure that the projects run efficiently and smoothly. From collating your requirements and the production of a functional specification through the implementation and test phase to going live and user training, our staff are totally familiar with the methods and functions of Solution Manager. Solution Manager handles all central planning and documentation tasks and controls the system configuration.
From the preparatory phase and planning through to the implementation and monitoring of the project – we support you at every stage, never losing focus and keeping the aims of your
project at the forefront. We see ourselves as your long-term logistics partner. In addition to the classical project management disciplines, we assist you during your SAP projects in defining objectives, time and workload planning, and in the areas of risk and change management.
We will jointly develop a customised logistics and IT solution according to the complexity of the task and the selected logistic solutions. Depending on your warehouse concept, we offer you various services and solutions to realise your specific ambitions and bring about successful project conclusions. It is not possible to make a general pricing statement in advance, as the amount of effort required will only become apparent on completion of a detailed planning and analysis phase.
Consistent, transparent business processes
Our WAMAS logistics software provides you with a tried and tested, upgradeable software product. WAMAS steers, controls, monitors and optimises the processes in manual, semi and fully automated warehouses. Consistent and transparent business processes visualised in WAMAS ensure flexible and efficient management of your logistics systems.
Together, we work out the optimal and most economical solution for your warehouse based on your core business processes. Our WAMAS systems provide you with tools that will improve warehouse performance, guide users easily and safely through the various processes and provide the information required to control the warehouse.
The standard version of WAMAS itself contains a large number of the business processes used in conjunction with a warehouse. It also has a range of customisation options that enable it to be configured to reflect your logistics processes.
Heterogeneity – diverse system solutions consolidated
The technological and functional strength of WAMAS also becomes apparent through the consolidation of the most diverse warehouse and order picking facilities – including combinations of automated and manual warehouse and picking systems – within a single system. WAMAS technology guarantees optimisation of the flow of goods across processes and functionalities as well as providing resource management across various warehousing zones.
Our WAMAS logistics software is deployed in over 400 projects, providing an efficient and transparent material flow for renowned companies throughout Europe.
