SAP Voice Execution

Mastering Supply Chain Management with SAP 2012 | 22


SAP Execution Overview
• To make warehouses run we all need execution support

• Historically achieved with SAP WM + middleware RF / Voice


Execution Systems

• Typically this achieved highly optimised execution workflows


• However they came with
• Costly integration projects with disparate systems
• Significant ongoing maintenance and support costs
• Stifled continual improvement due to integration issues

Mastering Supply Chain Management with SAP 2012 | 23


SAP Execution Overview
• SAP Offering was enhanced with MDE small screen transactions
and SAPConsole
• Completely revolutionised RF Barcode Scanner support in SAP
• Enabled RF Scanners with Telnet Clients Direct to SAP
• Later ITSMobile enabled Industrial Web Browsers with much better screen
presentations

• In my Opinion
“The SAP MDE transactions missed the mark in terms of providing
highly optimise work flows”

Mastering Supply Chain Management with SAP 2012 | 24


SAP Execution Overview

• Most SAP WM users have developed at least some custom RF


Transactions to achieve better workflows
• Following the MDE Transaction Framework provided in SAP

• Icon Integration have a developed a new Framework in SAP for


building highly optimised execution workflows with RF, Voice and
Warehouse KPI’s in mind.
