Design and rollout SAP in Production

How we standardized processes and reduced ERP implementations and in-house developments


Our challenge

Develop a production template on the basis of which a Europe-wide rollout can take place. The goal was to consolidate different systems and reduce the number of ERP implementations and in-house developments.

In detail

Our success story

This was a consolidation project to reduce the number of ERP implementations and in-house developments in the MES (Manufacturing Execution System) and to standardize processes for all production sites. The connection of production facilities through in-house MES developments was very site-dependent and therefore very expensive in terms of maintenance and development costs. Several employees per site were responsible for operating the various MES applications. Scaling to additional sites was not possible. This was the motivation to develop a production template that could be used for all factories worldwide. Since SAP ERP was already in use as the leading enterprise software at the time, manufacturing solutions from SAP were investigated. SAP Manufacturing and Intelligence (SAP MII), which had been added to the portfolio a few years earlier, met all the requirements to serve as a standard information interface..

The rollout of the developed production templates was completed in all six of the customer’s companies, including Poland, Spain and the main plants in Germany. With the S95 integration layer based on SAP MII, some sites received real-time connectivity to SAP ERP for the first time. In other plants, the existing MES in-house developments were completely replaced. Even though the rollout phase was kept extremely short, a great deal of experience was incorporated into the further development of the templates.
