Warehouse Redesign at Hikvision
Recently HAND Europe, in joint force with our partner, InfinITy Business Consulting, participated in implementing an SAP driven warehouse management solution for HikVision’s warehouse located in the North of the Netherlands. With HikVision’s warehouse extension and increasing order amounts, the need for a more optimized and automated solution arose. The goal of the project was to implement the system solution before the extended warehouse goes into use. And in later phases adding more functionalities, including the introduction of Radio Frequency scanning.
During the project throughout different workshops, together with the domain experts, information on the current ways of working and main solution requirements were collected. In later phases also for the inbound warehousing process and for the inventory counting warehousing process. For each process the consultants presented a proof of concept to be accepted. In case certain concepts within the system did not fit the needs of HikVision, custom development took place in order to meet the given requirements to full extent.
The newly adopted solution is system guided, however allows for manual overwrites at all times. This helps mitigate a more seamless and easier transition from previously accustomed to ways of working and helps build trust with the system and the solution. In a later phase New Dynamic Cycle Counting was introduced. It enables HikVision to continue their current in and outbound operations while performing inventory counting. With the introduction of RF scanning, the counting can be performed on different quantity levels and allows the company to increase their inventory accuracy.
