From enquiry to order with SAP, from order to cast part with OPTI.V7
SAP is the world’s leading ERP system providing integrated IT support for company business processes such as those in sales, production, materials management, finance, controlling and personnel as well as in research/development and marketing.
MES/PPC-systems – process-oriented production management systems – form the link between the ERP system at the company management level and the actual production process but cannot simply be put to use in any particular sector. Implementation can only be successful if both process and company-specific requirements are taken into account. This is particularly true for the foundry industry.
This realization, which had been confirmed so often in practice, was the reason why SAP AG and RGU GmbH decided to develop and implement a specific solution for the foundry industry. This integration solution has already been applied successfully in the GMH Foundry Group foundries, at Fritz Winter Eisengießerei GmbH &Co. KG and at KSB GmbH, and it now continues to be developed as the SAP standard solution “All for Foundry” with the All for One Seeb AG.
The diversity and variety of production procedures in foundries are characterised by linking continuous and non-continuous processes which demand special planning systems for scheduling and production planning such as those implemented in RGU OPTIV7.
This integration solution combines the strengths of both systems:
- The throughput of volume and value flows in the leading ERP system, in particular in commercial departments and controlling, combined
- with the comprehensive MES/PPC solutions for foundries and similar companies covering all production and process-related tasks.
