SAP EWM - Extended Warehouse Management

In complex warehouse and distribution centres the classic basic functionality of a warehouse management system is no longer sufficient – such as support of goods-in and goods-out, replenishment and inventory management. Additional functions supporting complex processes are required, such as cross-docking, returns processing, additional logistics services, and multi-customer warehouses.

Also, mapping material flow components with direct link to the programmable logic controllers is becoming increasingly important. In addition, to counter the cost pressures, resource and labour management functionality is required.
Since 2006 SAP offers with SAP EWM (Extended Warehouse Management) a new solution for warehouse management. The performance of this solution goes beyond the existing and widely available SAP LES WM module.

SAP EWM is part of SAP Supply Chain Management (SAP SCM) and supports inventory management and movement of goods in warehouses. The multi-client warehouse management solution was designed for large distribution centers with complex and highly automated processes.

Inventory management and goods movements are closely linked. A warehouse can be mapped in the system down to storage bin level. The affiliation to SAP SCM has the advantage of a strong integration in supply chain planning, collaboration, and supply chain visibility.

EWM solutions implemented by Dematic meet the needs of users who, on the one hand, want to use standard software, and on the other hand need a solution tailored to individual needs.
