Launch the Future of Industry 4.0 with SAP Connected Manufacturing rapid-deployment solution

Dear IoT community,

your customer can Launch the Future of Industry 4.0 with SAP Connected Manufacturing rapid-deployment solution!

Visit SAP at the Hanover Fair 2015, April 13-17, 2015 (SAP RDS booth)

Why is Industry 4.0 a game changer?

Manufacturing in the digital world requires a new approach how to run the shop floor. the central Internet of things (IoT) keyword is Connectivity.

  • Connecting machines (Operations Technology) and IT(Information Technology)
  • Re-invent agility and flexibility in manufacturing processes (Batch size of One)
  • Using IT intelligence to empower production workers
  • Introduce smart products carrying information from design to recycling
  • Increasing responsiveness to qualify companies and maximize business results in a new digital world

Why SAP rapid-deployment solution?

The rapid-deployment approach with SAP Connected Manufacturing RDS supports maximizing business results and optimizing production through implementing integration from ERP enterprise level to manufacturing execution.

  • Address individual customer requirements through real-time “lot size of one” production in high-volume production scenarios
  • Enhance shop floor operations by delivering automation functionality through efficient shop floor equipment integration and bidirectional machine communication (integration of shop floor to the top floor)
  • Empower production workers through simplified and minimized manual interaction
  • Improve quality of the assembly process by a real-time overview of all quality issues and activities via an intuitive and flexible web interface
  • Improve assembly control through product visualization
  • Gain new insights into the shop floor based on trends and prediction with HANA Big Data Intelligence
  • SAP Manufacturing Execution (SAP ME) and SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII) orchestrate the workstations by connecting ERP2PLC with Plant Connectivity (SAP PCo)
