Successful implementation of SAP® WM with a mobile solution
Project duration: 6 months
For more than 30 years, the ISOLITE Group has been the innovation and technology leader for insulation and sealing systems in the high-temperature range between 400 and 1,600 °C. With four locations in Europe, North America and Asia, ISOLITE supplies almost all well-known OEMs and system manufacturers in the automotive, aerospace and commercial vehicle industries worldwide. ISOLITE‘s high-temperature insulation systems help to widely improve exhaust gas aftertreatment and thus reduce consumption and emission levels. In addition to conserving energy and heat in the exhaust gas stream and protecting surrounding components, ISOLITE systems enable wide-ranging acoustic insulation options – from thermoacoustic insulation of a diesel particulate filter to complete enclosure of a gas turbine in power plant construction.
Initial situation and project aims:
Isolite uses an external warehouse management system with connection to mobile devices in all warehouses. The ERP software is SAP® ERP 6.0 without a distinctive warehouse management. The WLAN coverage is not comprehensive. In order to eliminate error-proneness and interface limitations, SAP® WM including a mobile online solution is to be introduced for a new warehouse building. Warehouse management is to be implemented for three locations in Germany and one location in the USA. The processes from goods receipt to delivery will be carried out on a mobile basis via the scanner-based Mobisys solution (MSB®), including control of mobile printers.
