Dock Appointment Scheduling EWM

Hi,

Can you use DAS (Dock Appointment Scheduling) for non-EWM shipments? We have EWM and ECC shipping locations in one physical location and we are looking at DAS.

Can we use DAS standalone for the ECC shipments? Do we need to transfer specific data (shipments etc.) from ECC to the SCM system.

Regards,

Dom

    Hi,

    you can indeed use DAS standalone. But standalone then really means "standalone", that means without any connection to a delivery. You would use that for a warehouse which is either WM managed or even not WM managed, but without any integration. I had a customer once interested in this, this was for a place where trucks delivered milk. So there is no real warehouse, and DAS was intended just for knowing which truck come when.

    Hi Juergen,

    Thanks for the reply. My understanding is that you can use ECC shipments in DAS if you transfer them to EWM as TUs. Is that a normal process? Is it possible to switch on this transfer via basic config and then only use the TUs for DAS? We would need the full TU functionality in EWM as we manage our shipment processing in ECC.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    "My understanding is that you can use ECC shipments in DAS if you transfer them to EWM as TUs."

    I would explain it the other way around: when you activate the integration of ERP shipments / LE-TRA with EWM, then your ERP shipment is a TU in EWM. And then you can use DAS for appointment scheduling.

    "Is it possible to switch on this transfer via basic config and then only use the TUs for DAS?"

    DAS does not really know TUs, it knows appointments. And appointments are connected to a TU in EWM (in an integrated scenario).

    "We would need the full TU functionality in EWM as we manage our shipment processing in ECC."

    I guess you want to write that "we would NOT need"? Well, how much you do with the TU in EWM is you decision. You do not need to use Yard Management. But you should first understand how the LE-TRA - EWM integration works, as not all things you do today in ERP might work the same way. Or you have to move away from the standard integration scenario, as for example all status in the shipment document are supposed to be set from EWM (via the TU).
