SAP Manufacturing Execution PCo Extensions

The “SAP ME Plant Connectivity (PCo) Extensions” have now been made available to customers and partners via SAP Developer Network (SDN).  Included with the extensions are an implementation guide and example scripts.  The package delivers a file monitor agent and an ME destination to support the integration of factory floor equipment to SAP ME for discrete manufacturing industries.  The package provides a light-weight, configurable, transformation and transaction engine and scripting capability, in the ME Destination, to support conditional processing.  The delivered examples illustrate the parsing of a machine generated data file and the communication of some of this data to SAP ME via web services.

PCo and the SAP ME PCo Extensions enable SAP ME to:

  • Ensure that the correct components are going to be installed
  • Track the Work in Process
  • Collect traceability information from equipment
  • Stop equipment to prevent the creation of bad product
  • Log a nonconformance when a problem occurs at equipment
  • Supply equipment with needed information, such as component material data
