viastore Systems Describes Ideal Implementation of SAP in Automated Warehouse

viastore Systems, a leading material handling automation systems and software company, released a whitepaper titled, “Deploying SAP EWM or WM in your conventional or automated warehouse? Here’s how to get the most out of your integration.”

The chances of success increase considerably when a company selects a solution partner with intralogistics experience. One with extensive expertise in connecting different material flow technologies to standard SAP solutions without third-party middleware as well as has extensive experience with numerous WMS and WCS implementations. The ideal integration/implementation partner will provide significant value to their customers when helping them deploy SAP solutions.

The ideal SAP EWM or WM implementation will produce the following outcomes:

  • Faster overall processing time and throughput for key order fulfillment operations, including receiving, putaway, replenishment, picking, value added services (VAS), packaging and shipping.
  • Faster reporting and key performance indicators (KPIs) provided in real time.
  • A substantial decrease in an operation’s overall software and integration footprint, enabling more streamlined support, upgrades and troubleshooting.
  • Faster communication within the overall solution.
  • Development of Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity of (machine to machine) connections to gain operational efficiencies.
  • A significant reduction in custom programmed code.
  • For EWM implementations, the ability to control subordinate automated systems—such as pallet, case and/or tote automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) or shuttle systems, carousels and vertical lift machines (VLMs), automatic guided vehicles (AGVs), conveyors and sortation, in-line print and apply, in-line scales, and more—by connecting these automated technologies directly to SAP warehouse management and material flow software and systems.
  • Ability to process Big Data across multiple global sites with HANA, which eliminates batch processing by instead utilizing a table of memory-stored data elements for on-the-fly reporting calculated only upon request (but not maintained in long-term storage).
