Our customer, a major wholesaler of sporting goods, was experiencing rapid growth and planned to move to a newly expanded facility with increased automation. The customer already had in place a ECC/EWM AFS-based system which Advanced Solutions had helped implement a year earlier. The customer wanted to use a leading WCS from a third party and integrate it to SAP EWM, leveraging the benefits of both technologies. The new system would support a Pick-to tote process including a putwall for high-volume order fulfillment.
Using a combination of SAP EWM-MFS and Advanced WCS middleware, the team was able to leverage MFS capabilities where the WCS was deficient, and utilize Advanced Solutions web service-based middleware to communicate from the WCS to SAP EWM in near real time. The wholesaler moved into the new distribution center and was automated within six months.
