Production

Production processes in high efficiency, flexibility and transparency

For automotive suppliers as well as parts and component manufacturers, which deliver to their customers based on forecast delivery schedules or JIS (Just in Sequence) processes, integrated and thus efficient processes affect the competitive position just the same in production as in logistics.

Lack of practical mapping in the SAP standard

Decisive for problem-free production planning and control (PP) and material requirements planning (MRP) in production are, among others: sales and revenue forecasts for planned material, inspection and monitoring of purchase quantities, BDE or backflush feedback for produced parts including consumed material, but also replenishment control per KANBAN or using other material control systems.

However, the standard functions of SAP ERP do not always map these special sequences practically. To compensate for these deficits, the SAP Standard is adjusted using in-house programming or hard-coded, non-configurable extensions. Efficiency, effectiveness, and transparency suffer from this. The same is true, if these processes are shifted into non-SAP applications.

Towards Industry 4.0 with add-ons and MES

This situation can be remedied using SAP-based add-ons, which seamlessly integrate in SAP ERP, can be released, and extend the SAP Standard by the required functions without modifications, as well as using JIS applications such as LOJISTIX®. Using such add-ons resp. such a JIS application, detailed planning in production and JIS production can be optimized and a pull-controlled production in line with Lean principles realized.

If the ERP processes as well as the sequences and data in production are additionally digitally networked and synchronized with a Shop Floor solution and/or Manufacturing Execution System (MES), transparency increases noticeably, and you can increase the productivity of your company sustainably. At the same time, you accomplish an important step in the direction of Industry 4.0.

Scenarios for SAP ERP and LOJISTIX

With this concentrated know-how, we support the development of your integrated solution, whether you use SAP or non-SAP software:

  • Does your company use SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA? Then the SPEEDI solutions "Sales and Revenue Forecast" and "Monitoring of Minimum and Maximum Purchase Quantity" extend the SAP standard in the areas of PP as well as MRP. In combination with the solutions from the SAP Manufacturing Suite, an integrated platform is created with which you can efficiently and transparently control production-related processes at all levels.
  • With LOJISTIX, whether in combination with SAP software or as a stand-alone solution, you can digitize JIS processes step by step. Our JIS application enables M2M communication and thus direct data exchange with your production facilities and supports all logistics processes relevant for JIS processing. The MES VALERIS is ideally suited for mapping complex production processes on the shopfloor.
