Challenges and Benefits


  • Minimize impacts on service, shipping and billing operational procedures;
  • Ensure availability and reliability of inventory and cost information with required details to meet management and accounting consolidation criteria;
  • Stratify cost composition of DC inventory items, allowing separation of production costs and aggregate costs with the factory purchasing operation (taxes and freight);
  • Adapt warehouse system to optimize use of the new DC shipping line;
  • Transfer quality control process to the DC.


  • Implementation completed in a short time, even before the DC construction was finished;
  • Increased control of the shipping process, allowing information by shipping or shipment group of the amount that is available for picking and what is still pending to be reserved for picking;
  • Increased storage area for finished goods as well as shipping and customer service capabilities;
  • High accuracy in management information and high level of detail in the breakdown of inventory costs;
  • Very low operational impact (using the same routines that users were already adapted);
  • Clearing physical space in the factory;
  • Increased inventory turnover due to increased shipping capacity.


  • Using scanners (SAP Console) to automate the warehouse process and SAP PI for picking interface (Knapp);
  • Activating Ledger Material and AVR (Alternative Valuation Run) features to enable stratified information of costs in inventory composition;
  • Setup of transfer processes between companies for DC supply and between centers for transfer between DC and other regional distributors;
  • Use of ASAP methodology for project control with 2 integrated test cycles.
