Key Features of SAP for Warehouse Management
While SAP systems have many distinct capabilities, applications, and benefits, there are specific features that can transform SAP Warehouse Management operations. These key features include warehouse structure and organization, putaway, interleaving and pickup optimization, task management, inventory and resource management, and warehouse data and analytics. When combined with barcoding technology, such as barcode scanners and barcode label printers, SAP WM is a powerful tool for efficiently managing any warehouse.
Warehouse Structure and Organization
BCC Distribution’s TranASAP RF scanning software can help organize SAP WM warehouse structure and operations. When used in conjunction with certified barcoding equipment, your teams can effortlessly catalog materials, bins and storage types, and incoming and outgoing shipments. Through real-time wireless connectivity, directly at the point of execution, accurate inventory data is updated and accessible for those on the network so your team can optimize workflows and operations around important warehouse components.
Putaway and Picking Optimization
In manufacturing and distribution, companies need to streamline material use and handling of incoming and outgoing shipments. TranASAP RF barcode scanning systems optimize putaway and picking strategies based on your storage types. SAP WM has the capability to recommend (user directed) ways to optimize storage location directional input for reduced travel time when handling inventory and incoming and outgoing shipments.
BCC Distribution’s barcoding system solution can also manage warehouse tasks such as shipping, picking, and packing. When combined with real-time barcoding solutions, the SAP software can update the inventory immediately, catching and correcting any errors as they occur. At BCC Distribution, our SAP-integrated 1D and 2D barcode scanning terminals scan each material, bin location, and validate quantity applicable to the order so as to process data fast to keep your warehouse moving.
Warehouse Data and Analytics
An additional feature of SAP Warehouse Management is the availability of significant warehouse data and analytics, requiring good data in to maintain system integrity and accuracy. These metrics and analytics are valuable insights that help further optimize warehouse operations. When implemented with BCC Distribution’s TranASAP RF barcode scanning solution, SAP software can provide logistics and reports on data points such as stock turnover, general warehouse performance, shipping efficiency, and storage utilization. SAP software adapts to the way businesses run their warehouses and in turn, provide key information on how to streamline them. The key is good data in, matched to disciplined business processes.
The full solution for SAP Warehouse Management increases warehouse productivity and efficiency for a number of different industries. These capabilities and applications are made possible when BCC Distribution’s mobilized and optimized SAP software is combined with barcode scanners, barcode labels, and rugged tablets that are certified to perform with the SAP software.
