Last part of the web seminar trilogy “The right SCM route before, during and after Corona” by LogiPlus and aflexio | 16 July 2020
On 16 July 2020, the supply chain and SAP experts from LogiPlus and aflexio will host the third online seminar in their three-part event series. This time they are taking the theme of the classic movie “Back to the Future”. Under the title “Back to the Supply Chain Future! What you can take along from the time before Corona.” the supply chain specialists use success stories to describe in a striking way how efficiency increases in the warehouse and in planning can be achieved quickly and in a targeted manner.
Analogous to the cult movie “Back to the Future” from the 1980s, in which Marty McFly returns to the past to positively influence the future, the supply chain experts from LogiPlus and aflexio also go back to the past with the participants. Project examples will be used to highlight which measures worked to optimise the supply chain in the time before Corona. And it will be shown how companies can take these concepts and solutions into the future and transform them in order to continue to be successful in the future – especially in volatile times.
The web seminar is divided into the focus topics warehouse logistics and supply chain planning. The first part will be given by the Supply Chain Planning experts from aflexio. Under the title “The Supply Chain Paradox: How to find stability even in volatile times!” aflexio Managing Director Martin Pesch will present how to meet the challenges of complexity and volatility with an integrated planning strategy and still achieve a stable supply chain with a reasonable amount of effort.
Increasing warehouse efficiency with SAP EWM
Thilo Matheis, founder and managing director of the LogiPlus Group, then enters the digital stage. In his presentation “Efficiency increases in the warehouse: technically feasible does not always make logistical sense”, the SAP EWM pioneer will focus on which measures will lead to success and a quick ROI. And which ones do not.
“My concern is to make it clear that the logistics processes have absolute priority and should be supported by the SAP software. And that it is a mistake if the logistics processes are subordinated to the software.”, is how Matheis describes the focus in this seminar.
“Nevertheless, as the market-leading warehouse management software, SAP EWM offers immense opportunities to eliminate pain points in the warehouse, even at very short notice. That’s why SAP EWM is the right vehicle to set up the supply chain properly for the future. Just like the DeLorean was the perfect vehicle for Michael J. Fox in “Back to the Future”.“, adds Matheis.
