The Challenge

As contract logistics provider for Philips Medizin Systeme GmbH, Müller Lila Logistik Deutschland GmbH operates a warehouse. So far, all warehouse tasks were managed via the existing SAP® system as well as a non-SAP® warehouse management system. The company wanted to replace the previous paper-based warehouse processes and accelerate process throughput times in the warehouse.

All postings had to be entered immediately and directly into the SAP® system. The aim was to make the transactions easier to manage and process.

Project Challenges

  • Integration of logistics processes into SAP®
  • Acceleration of throughput times
  • Connection of mobile data acquisition devices to SAP®
  • User-friendly dialogs
  • Acoustic warnings

The Solution

Due to its modular construction manner and multitude of existing SAP® standard transactions, the client opted for the ICS solution mobile4SAP®. Other factors that weighed into the decision was the use of SAP® ITSmobile, the standard for imaging of mobile processes recommended by SAP®, and the creation of all transactions in ABAP. In addition, SAP® ITSmobile supports the output of voice messages. The starting point of the ICS mobile4SAP® solution is the Basis Framework with which all customer needs are quickly and easily implemented.

From the 150 available mobile transactions of the mobile4SAP® solution, several SAP® transactions were selected and flexibly adapted to the customer needs.

Solution

  • Choice of 150 mobile transactions
  • Basis Framework
  • Connection via SAP® ITSmobile

The Result

Thanks to the use of the ICS solution mobile4SAP®, all paper-based storage tasks were replaced by MDE supported processes. As a result, processing times in the warehouse have been significantly expedited. All stock movements and inventory changes are recognized directly in SAP®. The user-friendly design of the transaction layouts contributed significantly to acceptance by end users. Due to the success of the project in the warehouse, additional transactions were selected from the mobile4SAP® package and expanded into production. The rollout of ICS mobile4SAP® to other international locations is planned.

Result

  • Replacement of paper-based storage tasks
  • Acceleration of processing times
  • Direct posting in SAP®
  • High user acceptance
The first step to your individual solution.
