Now available: SAP Connected Manufacturing rapid-deployment solution released in Q2/2015

Dear IoT Community,

We are pleased to announce the availability of he SAP Connected Manufacturing rapid-deployment solution on June 8, 2015. The combined software and services best practices approach significantly lowers implementation time and effort. Your customer can now Launch the Future of Industry 4.0 with SAP Connected Manufacturing rapid-deployment solution!

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

SAP Connected Manufacturing rapid-deployment solution V1.150  – Implement in as little as 13 weeks

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.

The rapid-deployment solution includes two scope options:

  1. The process for Discrete Manufacturing is an example for the Industry 4.0 key capabilities using the main scenarios of the underlying rapid-deployment solutions. It supports the core execution processes e.g. WIP management, traceability, non-conformance, inventory management, embedded SAP Visual Enterprise viewer and machine integration facilitated by SAP Plant Connectivity.
  2. The scenario for Process Industry describes the manufacturing of bulk products in an integrated business scenario using SAP ERP/PLM and SAP MII. The result is the coating for the assembly line coating process. Leveraging the SAP MII development infrastructure and prebuilt, standard-compliant integration to SAP ERP and shop floor systems, the batch manufacturing with SAP MII templates, integrate and synchronize manufacturing enterprise, operations, and device data.


Key features and benefits are:

  • Real-time “lot size of one” production in high-volume production scenarios for addressing individual customer requirements
  • Integration of top floor to the shop floor (and vice versa) to minimize disruption including machine integration into production cycle
  • Simplify and minimize manual interaction
  • Allow data capture from the source
  • Enabling discrete and process manufacturing
  • Product visualization to ease assembly control
  • Gain new insights into the shop floor based on trends and prediction with HANA capabilities

Target Market

  • Relevant Customer Segment: SAP Installed Base, dormant accounts, Net New
  • Market Segment Scope: Customers running ERP using PP, MM, PM, QM, SAP ME. Package can be run globally. RDS available in English.
  • Target Industries: All Discrete and Process Manufacturing industries (e.g. A&D, Automotive, Chemicals, Consumer Products, High Tech, IM&C, Life Science, Mill, Mining)
