1. Context

If you use the robots from the vendor Geek+ to move the handling units, you need to do the corresponding configurations in SAP EWM and SAP Warehouse Robotics and meet the following requirements in your business process.

2. Business Process and Configuration in SAP EWM

2.1 Entering the Robot Working Area

For example, in the following picture, you want to add the new HU (in the left corner) to the robot working area.

Suppose that you’ve defined the following storage bins as entry points:

  • PACK-I01-01

  • PACK-I01-02

  • PACK-I01-03

  • PACK-I01-04

You move the HU to either one of the bins above, for example, storage bin PACK-I01-01.

After that, SAP EWM creates a warehouse task to move the HU to the robot working area by a robot. In this case, PACK-I01-01 should be the source bin of the warehouse task, and a bin in the robot working area is the destination bin.

2.2 Leaving the Robot Working Area

For an existing HU in the robot working area that is leaving the robot working area, the HU must leave the area via some predefined storage bins. Those bins are known as the exit points with the technical name removePoint.

For example, in SAP EWM, you create a warehouse task to move the HU to the exit point, storage bin HANDOVER-01. The destination bin of the warehouse task should be bin HANDOVER-01. Once the HU is unloaded at the exit point, ensure that the HU is removed out of the exit point before SAP EWM sends another warehouse task that uses the same exit point as the destination bin. For more information, see the chapter of “Requirement HUs” (especially for the empty HUs)  Additional Requirements in SAP EWM.

3. Configurations in SAP Warehouse Robotics

When creating a robot process in app “Define Robot Process”-> step “Define Robot Process”, define the following additional parameters for the fleet management system:

Parameter Value
enterPoint Name of the SAP EWM storage bins which are used as an entrance
removePoint Name of the SAP EWM storage bins which are used as an exit


To conclude, if you're using robots from the vendor Geek+, remember to complete the configurations both in SAP EWM and SAP Warehouse Robotics. If you have any questions, share your thoughts by adding a comment.

1.  情景

如果你使用供应商Geek+的机器人来移动处理单元,你需要在SAP EWM和SAP Warehouse Robotics中进行相应的配置,并需要在业务流程中满足以下要求:


2. SAP EWM中的业务流程和配置

2.1 进入机器人工作区




  • PACK-I01-01

  • PACK-I01-02

  • PACK-I01-03

  • PACK-I01-04




2.2 离开机器人工作区


例如,在EWM中,你创建了一个仓库任务,将处理单元移动到出口点的存储仓位HANDOVER-01。仓库任务的目标仓位应该是仓位HANDOVER-01。一旦处理单元在出口点卸载,请确保在EWM发送使用相同出口点作为目标仓位的另一个仓库任务之前,将该处理单元移出出口点。有关更多信息,请参见Additional Requirements in SAP EWM(特别是对于空的处理单元的章节)。


3. SAP Warehouse Robotics中的配置

在应用程序“定义机器人流程”->“定义机器人流程” 步骤中创建机器人流程时,为车队管理系统定义以下附加参数:



enterPoint 用作入口的EWM存储仓位的名称
removePoint 用作出口的EWM存储仓位的名称
