The collaboration will combine SAP's scalable supply chain solutions, which builds on existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions for manufacturing, sales and procurement and can manage manufacturing performance, together with Fujitsu's systems integration services, which utilise its manufacturing expertise in a range of industries and operations.
The integrated offerings will initially be made available in Japan. Both companies are also considering future joint expansion to Asia and other regions around the world.
SAP Manufacturing Execution is capable of managing entire processes in manufacturing facilities, analysing them in real time and issuing reports. In addition, the system manages manufacturing performance for each production operation on-site, as well as information on quality and traceability, enabling the user to build a foundation for ensuring market quality and improving facilities.
The second solution, SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence, enables connection with, and data collection from, manufacturing execution systems (MES), systems that collect data from production lines, and a variety of on-site devices, such as PLCs, DCSs, SCADAs, and inspection equipment, as well as core systems such as ERP. At the same time, it supports optimal decision making through the analysis and visualisation of a wide variety of data from manufacturing facilities.
By deploying these solutions, operations data divided between various departments can be linked across the entire length of the supply chain, from sales to procurement, production and manufacturing, enabling visualisation and resolution of the various incidents which occur in manufacturing facilities.
