Advanced Manufacturing

Manufacturing 4.0

The solution for the integration of shop floor processes in SAP ERP / SAP S/4HANA

Advanced Manufacturing provides many functions that would otherwise be outsourced to external MES systems and also communicates with machines and sensors to further automate production processes. Via intuitive SAP Fiori user interfaces, these functionalities are now mapped in SAP ERP and executed device-independently. With Advanced Manufacturing, all information, documents and media required for production orders are available to the user at runtime from SAP PP standard structures. In addition to the functions related to the production order, the solution also provides production-related apps such as Kanban, traceability, reporting and business intelligence.
