Benefits for SAP customers:
- Elimination of redundant architecture
- Removal of the need for inventory synchronisation and interfaces
- Single-system (SAP) optimisation of warehouse management and material flow control
Our customers' primary objective is tighter SAP integration and the increase in efficiency, stability, transparency and quality that this brings, as well as reductions in ongoing operating costs. Picking solution run by SAP MFS (SAP Material Flow System) and SAP TRM (SAP Task and Resource Management) thereby create best preconditions.
SAP MFS (SAP Material Flow System)
SAP MFS (SAP Material Flow System) is an integrated segment within SAP EWM (SAP Extended Warehouse Management). The management of material flows in automated storage retrieval systems is the primary area for SAP MFS (SAP Material Flow System) deployment. Other application scenarios include complex, automated logistics centres for production and distribution.
SAP TRM (SAP Task and Resource Management)
SAP SAP TRM (Task and Resource Management) is an integral component of the SAP ERP (SAP Enterprise-Resource-Planning) system. SAP TRM (SAP Task and Resource Management) is deployed at both manual and automated warehouse handling sites, where it primarily supplements forklift and warehouse management control processes.
