Hasco Vision is a leading automotive lighting provider supplying some of the largest car manufacturers with over 500 product lines. To respond to tough competition in the market, Hasco Vision decided to significantly increase automation and cut costs in its main distribution facility and chose Westernacher as implementation partner. Westernacher integrated SAP EWM with an autonomous mobile robot solution – the world’s first solution of its kind.
In order to achieve the goals, best-in-class processes are required that are supported by suitable IT systems and process specialists. Westernacher supports companies in the spare parts logistics business with the creation of concepts and prototypes and with the implementation of SAP systems. In the spare parts planning sector, we primarily work with SAP Service Parts Planning (SPP) – from 2005.
The service parts planning solution from SAP is also available on SAP S/4HANA. This is particularly suited to automotive companies that distribute large volumes of aftermarket service parts to numerous stocking locations. Switching to S/4HANA will further enhance the accuracy in demand forecast and efficiency in using your production capacity. S/4HANA contributes to faster processes, real-time visibility, and greatly improves decision-making, as it enables users to plan, execute and generate reports and analytics based on up-to-the-minute data.
Before sending packages from SAP EWM, ERP or TM, you first need an agreement with the respective CEP (courier, express and parcel) service provider. Each of these carriers will then have the data for the package, e.g. sender, recipient, size, weight, etc. to determine the label that should be applied.
