The warehouse of tomorrow, today

Ubiquitous Computing, Internet of Things, Machine Learning

The past half-a-decade has seen the birth and explosive adoption of technologies which not only redefined the game, but also became or are becoming “a given” of everyday life and business. Supply chain and intralogistics seem to have remained rather indifferent to these technologies and trends, yet this state of affairs may find itself momentarily challenged by the business environment, either demand or competition driven. 

Efficiently balance workload variability in your warehouse with Labour Management in SAP EWM.

Every warehouse manager, whether working for an ice-cream producer, a sunglass manufacturer or any other company, is aware of the workload variation in the warehouse. Many managers wonder how to accommodate this workload variability. Knowing upfront what workload is expected and balancing the resources accordingly are imperative to control this variability. Furthermore, it is important to track the actual performance of resources to be able to act proactively in case of deviations from the initial plan.
