Mapping complex processes with the SAP standard
A successful implementation or optimisation project in process-intensive industries is dependent on consistently conducted business process reengineering before the actual project. Take the opportunity to set up your company in a sustainably stable manner and invest the time and resources saved in your products.
With SAP S/4HANA, you can already efficiently map the processes typical for mechanical engineering in the core modules in the standard and thus significantly reduce unnecessary additional developments and the unnecessary use of further solutions.
Act now and exploit the full potential of an SAP S/4HANA system.
Sustainable processes - new business models
Of course, sustainability is also a big issue for the mechanical engineering industry. But in addition to reducing emissions in your own processes and supply chains, it's also about offering products and services that help your customers achieve sustainability.
Sometimes even small optimisations in processes are enough to reduce waste, prevent damage or recondition defective parts and products.
Reconditioned machines and products can then be reused or sold as "used", to name just one scenario that is not only good for the environment, but also for you and your customers.
Innovative company and product-specific processes
The efficient use of the SAP S/4HANA Variant Configurator for products and machines to be manufactured as soon as the customer order is received/entered enables a lean and secure manufacturing process even in cross-plant/company scenarios and avoids bottleneck situations or unnecessary rework.
The secure and transparent handling of warranty/guarantee processes from the end customer or dealer and also with third-party manufacturers for installed assemblies leads to increased efficiency and simplification of work as well as traceability, also with regard to new, possible product design vis-à-vis the customer.
Increase your customer satisfaction through efficient and predictive service processes. With IoT / predictive scenarios, you can act before the damage has occurred. For example, you can automatically trigger the production or procurement of spare parts or dispatch a technician and thus prevent long downtimes for your customers. Furthermore, you can determine under which circumstances recurring undesirable product / machine behaviour occurs and initiate appropriate measures for product or process optimisation.
