Learn how PSE modernized their warehouse operations through SAP EWM, QM, and Batch Management to improve space utilization, increase inventory accuracy, empower its workforce, and support their field technicians more effectively.   Hear from Puget Sound Energy their reasons for change, key project highlights, key EWM functionality leveraged, and key business benefits achieved.   

Key Business Benefits:

  • Improve management and utilization of limited warehouse space to support a complex array of maintenance parts, tools, construction materials, and operating supplies
  • Increase inventory accuracy through bin-level management of the warehouse, and barcode scan verification and data entry vs. paper
  • Simplify vendor consignment management through stock determination and automated purchase at point of issue
  • Ease capture and management of serialized inventory through barcoding and SAP RF technologies
