SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM)
Dr Pepper Snapple Group has a combination of direct store delivery and warehouse delivery capabilities supported by their 21 manufacturing centers with more than 115 distribution centers. Nearly half of DPSG's annual volume is distributed through their company-owned bottling and distribution networks. The remainder is driven through third-party/licensed bottlers and distributors. DPS Group has also expanded into Mexico and the Caribbean where they operate primarily in the carbonated mineral water, flavored carbonated drinks, bottled water, and vegetable juice markets.
Thanks to SAP, Dr Pepper Snapple Group implemented the SAP® Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM) application, creating an integrated, repetitive manufacturing process, including the back flushing of components, with the SAP ERP application.
SAP’s solutions optimized loading and unloading with vehicle check-in and check-out. They enabled batch management for finished products, and designed a “shuttle” between facilities within warehouse complexes. SAP also introduced travel-distance optimization and cross-docking.
