Digital Manufacturing Execution Tasks

SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud for Execution: Work in process management and reporting:

  • Manage and release orders for execution on the shop floor
  • Production operators use the configurable PODs (Production Operator Dashboards) that were created in the POD Designer to capture and report execution data
  • An SFC is a unique WIP identifier representing a specific instance of the material being built during the manufacturing process and allows for full traceability of the product.
  • The SFC represents the quantity of the product to be produced, depending on the lot size of its material. An SFC can be a serialized or non-serialized (lot).

SAP Digital Manufacturing Work in Process

Execution and Discrete Manufacturing

The Production Operator Dashboard (POD) in SAP Digital Manufacturing is a customizable and interactive interface designed for manufacturing operators. It provides real-time visibility and control over production processes, allowing operators to monitor key performance indicators, manage tasks, and quickly respond to manufacturing events. The POD's user-friendly design, including drag-and-drop functionality and preview options, enhances operational efficiency and decision-making on the shop floor.

  • Support operators with a highly flexible and intuitive user interface (POD)
  • Configure and design the POD based on user requirements
  • Display execution-relevant information on production orders
  • Guide operators through work instructions in the POD
  • Support of data collections
  • Logging of defects and subsequent rework and repair actions using the nonconformance functionality
  • Provides product serialization and re-identification
  • Recording of assembled components for traceability and to trigger goods movements
  • Monitor OEE using established KPIs in the POD
  • Post-operation activity-level yield confirmations happen automatically, as well as goods receipts as units are completed

Execute Production Order in Order POD

Operator can see the details of the order (including batch) and execute the following activities:

  • Start Operation
  • Report Activities
  • Report Yield and Scrap
  • Report Material Consumption
  • Data Collection
  • Complete Operation
  • Report Goods receipt header material
  • Report Goods Receipt for Co-products and Batch products
  • Valuate batch during Goods receipt (update batch characteristics)

The operator can execute the following activities in Post-Production POD:

  1. Report Goods receipt for Production Order
  2. Report Data Collection for Production Order

Overall Equipment Effectiveness

  • Optimizing the machine efficiency by utilizing the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) functionality
  • Real-time visibility via related KPIs
  • Production Operator Dashboard (POD) is configured to show OEE KPIs.
  • The straightforward user interface allows production operators to report machine status change easily
  • Detailed OEE insights and root cause analysis

Work in process management and reporting

Capture the digital twin of the production process presented by the following reports:

  • The Product Genealogy Report displays the details of the component data collected for an SFC
  • The Product History Report displays the activity of an SFC over a period of time for Discrete Industries and a Batch over a period of time for Process Industries (see more details)

Execution and Process Industries

Designed specifically for the process industry, it enables businesses to optimize production processes, ensure quality and compliance, and enhance operational agility. By leveraging real-time data and analytics, SAP Digital Manufacturing Execution empowers companies to make informed decisions, reduce downtime, and maximize productivity.

  • Input parameters and report terminology will be set automatically either to Process or Discrete based on the Industry type for the Plant specified in a User profile.
  • Users can search by Batch, Material, or Order after pressing a value help button.

Modular Production

Modular production in SAP Digital Manufacturing refers to the flexible and scalable approach to manufacturing processes, where production systems are designed in self-contained, interchangeable modules. This concept allows manufacturers to quickly adapt to changing production requirements, market demands, or new product introductions. By integrating with SAP's digital tools, modular production enhances efficiency and agility, enabling manufacturers to reconfigure production lines and processes with minimal downtime and optimal resource utilization. This approach is particularly valuable in industries requiring high customization and rapid response to market trends.
