Warehouse:

Controlling Warehouse Processes Efficiently and Transparently

Whether you are a component supplier in the automotive or electronics industry or a part and component manufacturer: Highly efficient and flexible warehouse processes are a competitive factor in our digital business environment. For this purpose, SAP has developed several applications:

  • SAP MM-IM, an integral part of the SAP module for materials management (SAP MM), offers simple functions for inventory management on a quantity and value basis at the storage location level – keyword static warehousing – and supports planning and entry of goods movements as well as physical inventory.
  • SAP Warehouse Management (SAP LES/WM), an integral part of the Logistics Execution (SAP LE) SAP module, covers the processes from goods receipt, to stock placement and stock removal, picking and shipping completely, and enables chaotic warehouse management.
  • Multi-level warehouse processes can be mapped with SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM). The application also allows the determination of the optimum storage bin, supports all warehouse types, and integrates stacker control systems, handling unit management (HUM), and material flow control (MFS).

Optimum Supply Strategy Support

Whether SAP WM or SAP EWM, the SAP warehouse software should optimally support your supply strategy – whether per forecast delivery schedule, Just in Time (JIT) or Just in Sequence (JIS) – and seamlessly integrate into your value chain.

However, the SAP Standard often covers special process requirements in the warehouse incompletely only, for example, with respect to container generation in the course of JIS processing, the creation of shipping documents, shipping labels and forms, or the determination of the correct net weight of the goods for customs.
