Best practices for installing SAP
Dock Appointment Scheduling
“Collaboration with Carriers”
2
SAP Dock Appointment Scheduling
With SAP Dock Appointment Scheduling, you can plan and proceed with appointments for trucks or other
transportation units to arrive at the warehouse for loading or unloading. It also allows carriers chosen by the
warehouse to plan their own appointments directly in the warehouse’s system. In this way it provides work
leveling and helps to prevent bottlenecks at the warehouse where trucks arrive but there are no available
doors or staff and they must wait. It also helps the carriers to plan their transport more efficiently as they can
reduce the amount of time trucks have to wait at warehouses with this application.
You must install the desktop version of SAP NetWeaver Business Client 4.0 or higher to be able to use SAP
Dock Appointment Scheduling.
2.1

Security Information
With the increasing use of distributed systems and the Internet for managing business data, the demands on
security are also on the rise. When using a distributed system, you need to be sure that your data and
processes support your business needs without allowing unauthorized access to critical information. User
errors, negligence, or attempted manipulation of your system should not result in loss of information or
processing time. These demands on security apply likewise to SAP Dock Appointment Scheduling.
As security is so important, we strongly recommend that you read the SAP Extended Warehouse
Management Security Guide, on SAP Service Marketplace at service.sap.com/securityguides SAP
Business Suite Applications SAP SCM SAP Extended Warehouse Management
Warehouse Management 9.2 Security Guide .
