Stable production plan with embedded PP/DS on ERP

Flexible and at the same time efficiently designed process planning in manufacturing is one of the major challenges of a globally operating industrial manufacturer. In order to be able to reliably master the increasingly demanding planning in the future, Lechler decided to use the extended production planning PP/DS and the CONSILIO add-on solution for stable production planning as part of a complete SAP ERP on HANA implementation.

The result: the stabilization of job sequences and the optimal use of capacities by means of end-to-end, stable production planning ensure reliable scheduling of jobs without shifting priorities after order confirmation.

Implementation Highlights

  • SAP ERP on HANA complete implementation
  • SAP HANA embedded PP/DS
  • CONSILIO Add-on for stable production planning
  • Finite planning against limited capacities
  • Consideration of capacity, material and tool availability, customer priorities and personnel qualifications
  • Automated planning of complex order structures
  • Planning functions like graphical detailed planning board
  • Planning Simulations and Alert Monitor
  • Extensions for system-supported, interactive planning
  • Mold solution for injection molding

With the add-on for stable production planning in SAP HANA embedded PP/DS, CONSILIO offers a tool with which we were able to calm down our production and thus increase efficiency, since only new requirements are planned and integrated into the process under consideration of capacities and availabilities.
