With a new optimized technical solution for processing manufactured tires on pallets from MES, there is now more control between MES and
M. This involved replacing a large part of customization with standard SAP functionality after going live at Apollo Vredestein.
With a steerable and controllable interface, improved Material Requirement Planning (MRP) has been achieved. As a result, the biggest advantage for Apollo Vredestein is visibility and availability of inventory.
Through the new SAP Process Integration (PI) interface between the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and SAP ERP, now:
- Inbound deliveries booked directly into SAP Extended Warehouse Management
- Production orders created from plan orders
- Consumption is charged off based on real-time data from the MES system
- Production orders automatically confirmed
