Follmann Chemie optimises warehouse management through real-time transparency in SAP EWM. With LP EasyDashboard.

How the LogiPlus Add-On LP EasyDashboard has significantly increased the efficiency of controlling processes in the warehouse.

With the LP EasyDashboard add-on, Follmann Chemie creates real-time transparency across all warehouse activities and thus optimises warehouse management

Follmann Chemie GmbH, based in Minden, specialises in the production of special chemicals for the design of surfaces and compounds. The family-owned company was faced with the challenge of improving warehouse monitoring. Due to the complexity within the three company groups, their enormous warehouse activities and the use of a complex Excel cockpit with SQL interfaces to SAP WM, Follmann Chemie had to update the data manually two to three times a day.

This led to long loading times and large amounts of data, which meant that analyses, reporting and control measures could only be carried out with a very long delay. In view of the upcoming migration from SAP WM to SAP EWM as an embedded version, the chemical specialist was faced with an important decision: should the previous Excel cockpit be converted on an EWM basis or replaced by a modern tool?

Requirements and decision in favour of LP EasyDashboard as the new tool

Follmann Chemie decided in favour of a modern new tool with regard to future viability and had corresponding requirements. The tool must enable real-time access to all relevant data and ensure automatic updating. Real-time reactions should be made possible and questions about the workload in the warehouse should be answered immediately. It should also be intuitive to use, as ease of use is essential for acceptance and efficiency.

In order to significantly increase the efficiency of the controlling processes and transparency, Follmann Chemie decided to introduce the LogiPlus add-on LP EasyDashboard to display the relevant SAP EWM data in real time.

Our LP EasyDashboard add-on enables real-time visualisation of key figures from the various warehouse areas – from goods receipt and inventory management to goods issue.

We deliver our solution with various visually appealing standard dashboards. These summarise the most important key figures from the warehouse. In addition, customised dashboards can be created that are adapted to the customer’s processes and requirements.

The dashboards generated online are browser-based. And on any end device – from Smart TV as a large monitor directly in the warehouse to PC to the warehouse manager’s mobile phone.

The charts are configured in the SAPUI5-based front end with just a few clicks and allow access to various SAP standard data sources (e.g. SAP EWM Monitor) as well as customised data sources (e.g. CDS).

Areas of application for LP EasyDashboard at Follmann Chemie

What is LP EasyDashboard used for?

At the moment, the focus is on dispatch logistics. The add-on is currently mainly used to integrate and visualise outbound data from the SAP EWM warehouse monitor and CDS data sources.

In the future, data for the delivery cockpit, intralogistics and production supply and disposal will also be integrated.

Which levels use the add-on?

LP EasyDashboard is currently used at various levels. These are primarily logistics, shift and team management. It also plays an important role in the daily stand-up meetings on the shop floor.

In the future, the use of dashboards directly on the shop floor via screens is also planned.
