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.
- Integration of logistics processes into SAP®
- Acceleration of throughput times
- Connection of mobile data capturing devices to SAP®
- User-friendly dialogs
- Acoustic warnings
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.
- Choice of 150 mobile transactions
- Basis Framework
- Connection via SAP® ITSmobile
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.
- Replacement of paper-based storage tasks
- Acceleration of processing times
- Direct posting in SAP®
- High user acceptance
