Digital Manufacturing Use Cases

Standardized & cross-site shop floor connectivity

With SAP Plant Connectivity and FORCAM FORCE EDGE, all desired shop floor components can be transformed into data sources. This means that heterogeneous machine parks can be digitized in a standardized manner. Thanks to already integrated machine templates, you have the possibility to carry out independent roll-outs in the shortest possible time. All machine data is available to the higher-level ME and ERP systems from SAP in real time.

Higher efficiency & lower operating costs

With SAP Digital Manufacturing, all manufacturing steps in production can be tracked and monitored seamlessly and in real time. This means that precise information about the progress and status of production orders is available at all times. The automated recording of success-critical KPIs such as OEE enables conclusions to be drawn at any time about availability, performance or capacity utilization. With the help of reports & analyses, optimization opportunities can be continuously identified in order to significantly increase overall plant effectiveness.

Sustainable manufacturing through predictions & forecasts

Predictive maintenance requires the ability to intelligently process and evaluate large amounts of data in a short time. This is usually not possible with a local implementation. An IoT-based solution enables the storage and processing of terabytes of data – enriched with machine learning algorithms that are used to predict potential hazards and accurately determine when industrial equipment is likely to fail. The advantages are:

  • Improvement of service profitability
  • Increase in equipment availability
  • Reduction of maintenance costs
