Streamlining warehouse & distribution operations with SAP EWM
Headquartered in the Asia Pacific region, the client is leading private logistics payer with specializations in sophisticated supply chain designs.
The client’s existing SAP Extended Warehouse Management platform was used to accelerate high-volume repository tasks, but needed many gaps to be addressed on priority.
A high degree of inventory variations ranging from retail goods, pharmaceuticals, to petroleum products and defense supplies needed a holistic oversight on its extended warehouses network, located at disparate airports. The client required an efficient tracking, handling and storage of continuous mining outputs in specific geographies, systematic monitoring the specialized safety requirements concerning the storage of dangerous goods (DG), as well as complete inventory visibility of the critical tactical supplies required by the ADF. The client also needed its unique warehousing strategies to conform to its customers’ business models as well as the stringent regulatory complexities associated with international trade and business sustainability.
YASH consultants understood the client’s business needs and recommended an upgrade of the SAP EWM platform using the ‘sidecar methodology’. The ensured the retention of the flexibility of the earlier service framework to accommodate the requisites of both the SAP and non-SAP centric customers. The team also incorporated advanced features that helped resolve various inventory management complexities, validated production benchmarks, ensured adherence to EHS protocols for DGs, introduced RPA for warehouse operations and more.
The upgradation of SAP EWM helped achieve greater flexibility in the modelling of warehouse and inventory processes. This not only enhanced the visibility and governance for the client, but also improved the compliance architecture, preempting business risks before they occurred. With the addition of value-added functionalities, YASH team was able to increase the situational awareness through a multidimensional and in-depth reporting framework, as well as facilitated business transformation towards Warehouse 4.0.
