Project Description In the course of the SAP implementation at the Ostfildern headquarters, SuPCIS-L8 was implemented as the new Warehouse Management System at MairDumont.
With the new application software a pallet high-bay warehouse is being operated as a supplies area with forklifts using radio data transmission. Furthermore an automated container conveyor system as well as paperless picking via Pick by Light and Put to Light are managed by the WMS. A strong emphasis was placed on the WMS support of special
processes for a more efficient handling. Thus two-staged processes ensure streamlined processing of one item orders, withdrawals of great quantities and supplies in containers for continuous flow racks at goods-to-man picking stations.
A separate picking zone was set up for campaigns. Order consolidation processes and various special processing requests (value added services) at the packing station are supported by the WMS.
