ASPA has made the implementation of SAP WM warehouse management solution in the facilities of Silesia Plastic (Poland), a company belonging to the Spanish company Grupo Antolín.
The warehouse management application is integrated with the SAP PP integrated production planning module and; with this new system it has full control over the location of materials in the warehouse, as well as updated information in real time about pallets, containers and boxes in the warehouse. Reports on employment levels and pending operations, and the ability to plan and assign tasks to workers allow easy management of store managers.
The map management warehouse system, which has all the information about the different types of pallet, available capacities, strategies and picking location, etc., generates an increase in the utilization of the warehouse and releases the responsible in charge, who now only have to assist to inquiries from operators in exceptional situations.
The efficiency of the warehouse operations has increased, resulting in the productivity of the workers who have at all times in barrows all the information about pending tasks, thus avoiding downtime and consultations to those responsible.
The project was carried out during the first half of 2011.
