Embed new innovations enabled by the SAP S/4HANA Manufacturing solution
Live planning: Gain the ability to respond to demand and confirmed-order changes. Advanced planning and scheduling (APS), demand-driven replenishment (DDR), and drastically reduced material requirements planning (MRP) processing time improves transparency and responsiveness.
Real-time visibility of manufacturing operations: Visualize capacity utilization for work center and resources to understand load distribution and make real-time adjustments to available capacity, production order, and operation schedule.
Effective manufacturing change management: Bridge the gap between production design (eBOM) and manufacturing
(mBOM). Manage handovers and changes coming from engineering within a change record to track all process steps. Support for 3D visualization and animated work instructions are available with SAP 3D Visual Enterprise applications..
Complex manufacturing management with simplicity: Manage complex manufacturing with support for visualization and impact analysis in production engineering and operations. Model/unit effectivity for installation kits (breakdown of major assemblies into smaller pieces) is available throughout the end-to-end manufacturing process.
Mass production of individualized products: Produce personalized products ordered by customers with minimal human intervention. Product genealogy for every unit is maintained in the system for service and compliance needs. Collaborate with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and contract service providers to enable quick fulfillment of custom orders while reducing inventory and waste.
Predictive quality control: Monitor, regulate, and improve the quality of processes using statistical process control (SPC). Predictive algorithms for automated quality
defect detection and expedited corrective action are supported using the SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud solution
Improved EH&S risk and incident management: Embed safety and operational risk management into all of your operations by managing incidents effectively. Provide critical safety information to all employees – top floor to shop floor – to create an effective safety culture using the SAP Connected Worker Safety solution.
Real-time manufacturing insights: Have a real-time and drillable view of the performance metrics of all the production facilities globally. This enables identifying and implementing global manufacturing best practices. Define your own dashboards or adapt KPIs using SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud
Manufacturing Engineering: Production engineering and operations that extends SAP S/4HANA to bridge the gap between engineering and manufacturing through digital collaboration of manufacturing master data. Advanced visualization capabilities of production engineering and operations with 3D support in managing bills of material and work instructions.
Manufacturing Execution: Comprehensive change impact analysis that extends to the shop floor with the possibility to hold production orders in addition to assessing stock quantities prior to change implementation. SAP Fiori apps for production supervisor and production operator on mobile devices. Work queue to search and view the operation activities currently assigned to workers by production supervisors
Manufacturing Network: Manage the subcontracting process from planning to execution; monitor and integrate your business network. Integrate the external workforce into production execution; manage time and material handovers.
Manufacturing Analytics: Real-time alerts based on bottlenecks in production, such as time or component delays, and resources. Derive insights for action based on plant performance analytics. Track manufacturing costs with comparative analysis of planned versus actual production cost. SAP Fiori apps for production supervisors and operators that provide live production visibility, orchestration, and confirmation capabilities.
