Unleash the full potential of your SAP Manufacturing Suite and DM with FORCE EDGE CONNECT. Machines can be connected to existing SAP systems regardless of age and machine manufacturer, creating the basic prerequisite for data-driven manufacturing. Thanks to FORCE EDGE CONNECT, machine connection has become a standard routine. The complexity and time required to connect a new machine are significantly reduced, which means that the added value of digitalization can be realized more quickly.

SAP Use Cases

Maintain transparency over manufacturing

FORCE EDGE CONNECT automatically delivers machine status, warnings, and quantity messages to SAP Manufacturing Suite and DM. This lays the foundation for efficient LEAN management. In addition, unexpected situations can be reported and responded to more quickly.

Manage manufacturing from the top floor

Thanks to the bidirectional communication of the FORCE EDGE CONNECT, data can be sent directly from SAP Manufacturing Suite and DM, ERP or other systems to the machine. Production processes can thus be controlled via SAP Manufacturing Suite and DM.

Collect energy and other consumption of machines

The FORCE EDGE CONNECT sends temperature, energy, and other consumption data from each machine to the SAP Manufacturing Suite and DM. This creates the data basis to determine the CO2 footprint for production or end products. Energy consumption can be analyzed per plant, and production order and optimization potential can be identified.
