Initial situation and project aims:
At the time of the project start, approximately 36,000 part number items were managed in ten decentralized warehouses in the trial logistics area. The warehouse processes were subjected to a redesign. In the new central warehouse, the processes were mapped on the basis of SAP ERP 6.0 with WM and integrated into the existing company processes. Newly introduced was the support of warehouse tasks by mobile devices, i.e. the feedback via paper entry and offline connected MDEs was transferred to an online process. The now specified, guided processes support and relieve the warehouse staff, resulting in an improvement in quality and efficiency.
