SAP EWM implementation based on a global SAP EWM template at the new Freudenberg Sealing Technologies distribution center at Bischofsheim, Germany

Freudenberg Sealing Technologies (FST) as the worldwide market leader in sealing technology built a new distribution center in Bischofsheim in Germany. This central warehouse is extremely important to Freudenberg. They supply customers in Europe and around the world from here.

Freudenberg Sealing Technologies choose LogiPlus as SAP EWM implementation and IT partner, as LogiPlus has the substantial size needed to support them worldwide and to offer specialisation in warehousing, logistics and especially in SAP EWM. For FST it was important to have a partner on the same footing who is innovative and who has an eye for innovations and new trends in the market.

Global SAP EWM Template

On this project, LogiPlus was responsible for the design and implementation of all intralogistical processes in SAP EWM. But this was not our first joint project with FST. In the United States, we already successfully implemented SAP EWM. There we had already generated a Freudenberg-specific SAP EWM template based on our LP PoweredEWM template.

Innovations

Based on the FST specific template, we integrated several innovations into the template for the distribution center in Bischofsheim such as:

Pick-by-Vision

One innovation at this location is the use of data glasses in a pick-by-vision process. We were able to connect the client directly to SAP, which leads to faster and more effective picking.

SAP EWM connection of AGVs

Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are being used at Bischofsheim. For one thing, they operate in an area of narrow aisles, yet they are still able to move pallets from point A to point B on the floor. We integrated them directly in SAP EWM. They are controlled from there and can be directed with complete transparency and used flexibly.

Intuitive packaging dialogues

LogiPlus puts a great deal of value on the optimal interaction between people working in the warehouse and the PC. This is especially evident in the packaging dialogue at FST, which we specifically developed to meet its needs. All work and mobile dialogues are very easy and intuitive with guidance from the system, so the user can concentrate on his tasks, namely picking, packaging, etc.

"Today we are the worldwide market leader in sealing technology and we built a new distribution center in Germany. For this project we choose LogiPlus as SAP EWM implementation partner as it has the substantial size needed to support us worldwide and offers specialisation in warehousing, logistics and especially SAP EWM."

LP PoweredEWM from LogiPlus

SAP experience from over 20 years

With the LP PoweredEWM system, LogiPlus uses a fully developed and extended SAP EWM system in the project. Our customer receives a fully defined warehouse, supplemented by field-proven enhancements from LogiPlus. These result from more than 20 years of experience with SAP-based warehouse management software.

Ready-defined workplace dialogues

Among other things, we deliver ready-defined workstation dialogues, stationary packing stations, picking stations on the conveyor system and ready-defined mobile processes. “Pick, pack and pass” scenarios are included as well as value added services and cross docking. An individually customisable LP Warehouse Control Center for controlling and monitoring the daily load is also part of our LogiPlus package.

Start together at 75%

In the implementation project, we directly use the latest version of LP PoweredEWM. The scope of services also includes MFS functionality with push channels for communication with a PLC. This significantly reduces the project complexity and runtime when implementing a SAP EWM system.

LP PoweredEWM is not a sample system or a sandbox. Our Rapid Deployment Solution is delivered SAP compliant and installed in your development system as a base. With LP PoweredEWM you too can start your implementation project at 75% instead of zero.
