Early adopters of Industry 4.0 leverage Machine-to-Machine (M2M), Internet of Things (IOT) and Machine-to-Enterprise (M2E) integration for achieving the next level of productivity improvements through latest technological advancements. Agile manufacturing operations in the Industry 4.0 paradigm are required to respond to changing customer needs, faster Innovation to Delivery, better visibility into Production and better human interfaces.
EXA has significant subject matter expertise in Discrete and Process Manufacturing Industry processes. This is coupled with our strong consulting and development skills in the SAP Manufacturing stack comprising MII, MES, PCo and OEE. Our advisors can help you in evaluating your manufacturing software systems and identifying potential improvements. Our technical architects can design, develop and implement recommended solutions to help realize your business commitments.
SAP Manufacturing Integration & Intelligence (MII)
SAP MII drives plant performance improvements. It simplifies integration with shop floor automation systems and SAP ERP manufacturing processes. Further, custom solutions for unique manufacturing scenarios can be developed using the MII workbench.
SAP MES enables the use of enterprise-wide real-time data to make key manufacturing decisions. This helps in optimizing plant performance- improving profitability, increasing quality and reducing variation.
Key customer benefits include higher product and process quality, better throughput, streamlined compliance, optimized asset utilization and better control of shop floor processes though SAP.
SAP Plant Connectivity (PCo)
SAP PCo enables the exchange of information between SAP and other industry specific data sources such as process control systems and plant historians. The Notification Process of PCo monitors production facilities, records exceptions (such as rule violations or changes in measurement readings) and reports them to a destination system. Destination systems, such as SAP MII, use the Query Process of PCo to query specific source system tags. This data can be displayed on a dashboard.
Our advisors can help you in setting up the SAP PCo Infrastructure and connect your control systems, control devices, SCADA systems, Plant Historians to SAP MII, MES systems and SAP ERP.
SAP Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)
OEE provides real-time visibility into production performance by aggregating real time manufacturing data, performing real-time calculations and presenting OEE metrics of Utilization, Availability, Performance and Quality. Since it runs on SAP HANA, OEE reporting is possible across the entire organization, Regions and Plants.
