Success Story: DAW Sweden runs SAP EWM S/4HANA Embedded

DAW, Europe's largest private manufacturer of building paints, hits the mark with SAP EWM and LogiPlus

Exploiting the full potential of a holistically integrated warehouse management system with SAP S/4HANA Embedded

DAW SE is the largest private manufacturer of building paints and thermal insulation in Europe. The group of companies is headquartered in Germany in Ober-Ramstadt in Hesse and is represented at numerous locations in around 40 countries worldwide with around 5,600 employees. DAW is the umbrella for many strong brands such as Alpina, Caparol or Alligator.

Initial situation at DAW SE

DAW had to make the strategically important decision as to which ERP system should be used in the entire group in the long term. After the choice fell on SAP S/4HANA, a global roll-out plan determined which locations were to be transformed and when.

In this context, SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) was chosen as the warehouse management system. In order to benefit from a holistically integrated system in combination with SAP S/4HANA, DAW chose SAP S/4HANA Embedded as the implementation option.

The first location in this SAP EWM rollout series was Sweden. The warehouse there is around 3,600 sqm in size and comprises almost 4,300 systemic storage locations.

About the project goals and the implementation

After the successful cooperation in the SAP EWM project at the headquarters in Ober-Ramstadt, LogiPlus was again chosen for the implementation in Sweden.

With this project DAW pursued the goal of increasing process stability by converting to a system-managed warehouse. At the same time, accuracy and efficiency in the warehouse were to be increased by switching to scanning processes. In addition, the aim of this project was to create the basis for a long-term optimisation of the warehouse processes with regard to worldwide roll-outs.

The implementation was carried out within a very short period of time with the release SAP EWM S/4HANA 1809 in the Embedded Basic version. In addition, the graphic design studio LP MobileGRAFIX developed by LogiPlus was used to optimise usability for warehouse employees.
