If you are in the metals industry- including steel, zinc, nickel, aluminum (or aluminium!) – there is a new SAP.com site that might be of use to you.
Metal companies are increasingly seeing digital technology as a key enabler in re-inventing business processes that will help drive sustainable growth and ensure production availability while continuing to drive down costs and risks. Sometimes we talk about the broader challenges that Mill Products companies face – or even Energy and Natural Resources industries face – broader categories that include metals. But we also know that companies want to know what others are doing in their direct or closely related industries.
We now have an SAP.com site dedicated to metals industry. We will continue to refresh this site with the newest customer stories, thought leadership commentary and white papers that you can look at as you continue down your digital transformation journey. Some examples that you can find talk about how:
- Severstal is ensuring uninterrupted output and timely delivery of orders to customers, while enhancing asset reliability and reducing breakdowns, with SAP solutions for multiresource scheduling and mobile asset management
- Tangshan Steel saved 425 million Yuan in maintenance costs in the first year after deploying the SAP Enterprise Asset Management– and cut spare parts by 21% and overhaul costs by 59% in the first six months
- Joris Ide Group uses the SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII) to increase order visibility; improve reporting for executives, managers, and operators; and reduce waste and errors.
