Revolutionizing Warehousing with SAP EWM and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs): SCM Champs Success Story

New Delhi (India), June 27: In the rapidly evolving world of logistics and supply chain management, integrating cutting-edge technology is crucial for maintaining efficiency and competitiveness. SCM Champs, led by visionary CEO Mr. Prabhjot Singh, stands at the forefront of this transformation. One groundbreaking innovation championed by SCM Champs is the integration of SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs). This article explores how SAP EWM and AMRs can optimize warehouse operations, enhance flexibility, and significantly improve order fulfillment processes.

Case Study: Transforming an Omnichannel Warehouse

A major retail company in the US faced significant challenges in its omnichannel warehouse, including slow order processing, frequent inventory inaccuracies, and high labor costs. SCM Champs implemented an integrated solution of SAP EWM and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs), leading to a remarkable transformation:

  • Order Processing Time: Reduced by 40% due to automated picking and transportation of goods.
  • Inventory Accuracy: Improved to 99%, eliminating costly errors and stock discrepancies.
  • Labor Efficiency: Human workers reassigned to strategic roles focused on quality control and customer service, while AMRs handled repetitive and time-consuming tasks.
  • Scalability: During peak seasons, additional AMRs were deployed to handle increased order volumes without significant lead times or extensive training.

This integration, spearheaded by SCM Champs, revolutionized warehouse operations and showcased the profound impact of combining SAP EWM with AMR technology.

Understanding SAP Extended Warehouse Management

SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) is a robust solution designed to manage intricate warehouse operations seamlessly. Unlike traditional warehouse management systems, SAP EWM offers advanced functionalities to handle high-volume inventory movements and complex storage needs. Key features include real-time tracking and management of inventory levels, integration with automated systems and equipment for enhanced warehouse automation, streamlined picking, packing, and shipping processes for efficient order fulfillment, and the efficient allocation and utilization of labor and equipment through resource management. Additionally, SAP EWM provides the flexibility and scalability needed to adapt to changing business needs and growing operations. 

The Role of Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs)

Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) are revolutionizing warehouse operations by delivering unparalleled efficiency and flexibility. Unlike traditional automated guided vehicles (AGVs), AMRs use sophisticated sensors and artificial intelligence to navigate dynamic environments without fixed paths. Key benefits of AMRs include enhanced productivity through around-the-clock operation, significantly boosting throughput. They offer remarkable flexibility, being easily reprogrammed to adapt to new tasks or changes in warehouse layout. Safety is also a crucial advantage, as AMRs are equipped with advanced sensors to avoid collisions, ensuring safe operations alongside human workers. Additionally, AMRs provide cost-efficiency by reducing labor costs and minimizing errors in inventory handling. 

“Integrating SAP EWM with Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) creates a powerhouse of efficiency and precision. SAP EWM communicates directly with AMRs, dispatching tasks and receiving real-time updates on inventory movements to ensure synchronized operations. This integration enables faster and more accurate order picking, packing, and shipping. AMRs transport goods to packing stations where human workers or automated systems complete the packing process, minimizing delays and errors. Additionally, SAP EWM’s advanced slotting and storage management features, paired with the mobility of AMRs, maximize warehouse space utilization. Real-time data from AMRs, managed through SAP EWM, gives warehouse managers unprecedented visibility into inventory levels and movements, facilitating better decision-making. As business needs evolve, this combination offers unmatched scalability, allowing new robots to be added with minimal disruption and SAP EWM configuration to accommodate new workflows and processes,” says Prabhjot Singh, spokesperson for SCM Champs.

SCM Champs play a crucial role in implementing innovative technologies, enabling businesses to harness the full potential of AMRs and achieve significant improvements in efficiency and accuracy in their warehouse operations.
