SAP Delivers New Templates For Manufacturing Execution

SAP NEWSBYTE – February 09, 2010 – SAP AG is now delivering preconfigured, best practice templates for its SAP® Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII) application to support lightweight manufacturing execution in batch manufacturing industries. The batch manufacturing with SAP MII templates are cost-free and extend the architecture of SAP MII by providing prebuilt, plant and role-specific composites to support manufacturing preparation, execution, documentation, and reporting. Batch manufacturing with SAP MII is the result of a successful co-innovation project, leveraging the experience of SAP, SAP MII partners Ciber, Systec and Services and Trebing + Himstedt, as well as customer input.

The templates cover nine application areas: role-specific manufacturing operations cockpits, manufacturing order list, material identification, work instructions, quality control, production confirmation, shift book, monitoring and logging, and manufacturing performance. The templates are a complementary extension to the “Manufacturing Visibility, Intelligence and Integration” package, offered as part of the Best-Run Now initiative from SAP. The fast time-to-benefit is a key value driver for the Best-Run Now packages.

Sika AG, a manufacturer of specialty chemicals for construction and industry based in Baar, Switzerland, is the forerunner to the batch manufacturing project. The company defined and implemented SAP MII composites developed by SAP partner Trebing & Himstedt with a new plant opened to increase production of its Sikaflex product. Sika AG successfully made productive use of SAP MII for manufacturing execution with functionality for order execution, while enjoying lower licenses and implementation costs in comparison to traditional manufacturing execution systems. The results of these developments and implementation formed a central part of the new templates now being delivered.

The development of these templates showcases the strength of SAP MII as a highly specified infrastructure for developing plant to enterprise integration and creating powerful composites for manufacturing execution that can run decoupled from the enterprise resource planning (ERP) application SAP ERP. The pre-built templates can be used in their entirety or extended to meet additional customer requirements.
