SAP EWM und Plant Connectivity: Performance?


Dear experts,

we are currently preparing for an internal project to implement SCM-EWM with EWM-MFS. We need to interface conveyor as well as high-rack shelf systems. I've already analyzed the current TCP/IP (socket-based) traffic between the control systems and the legacy system. Once again I'm afraid SAP will be too slow.🤪

I've searched many pages but haven't found any indication yet what the standard response time of the material flow control component in combination with PCo is. Scenario: SAP SCM-EWM Server 10 meters away from the conveyor (meaning "no" network delay), Release 7.02, PCo 2.2 connecting to one conveyor controller. No other system load. Telegram of controller saying "I've read SSCC barcode <xyz>". SAP responding: "Send SSCC <xyz> to conveyor area <ABC>". I'm interested in the typical time in ms between these two telegrams.

Any practical experience in that area?
