  1. 1. PI: Platform for ERP & SCM Ron Kolz ERP Industry Manager
  2. 2. Agenda <ul><li>ERP, SCM and E-Business Challenges for Manufacturing </li></ul><ul><li>Need for Real-Time Plant Data </li></ul><ul><li>Recommendations </li></ul><ul><li>Summary </li></ul><ul><li>Questions </li></ul>
  3. 3. ERP Challenges Gartner Group, 1998 &quot;Manufacturing businesses that make investments in ERP-directed manufacturing applications that fail to provide for accurate real-time information from the process will achieve at least 50% lower ROI on those investments...&quot;
  4. 4. E-Business Challenges Goldman Sachs, Nov. 12, 1999 “ The real-time feature of B2B fosters constant communication between buyers and suppliers, revealing the dynamics of supply and demand in the marketplace…for determining price as well as for managing inventory . The ability to satisfy real-time needs will drive B2B .”
  5. 5. Requirement: Plant Data Order Status? Inventory? Equipment Availability? Quality?
  6. 6. ERP Needs Plant Data <ul><li>Initial ERP focus: Financials </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Now want plant/ERP integration </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Plant events impact business </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Real-time inventory (else more $$) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>ATP </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Asset Efficiency - operate to capacity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Timely, condition-based maintenance </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cycle Time - reduce order to delivery </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. E-Business Needs Plant Data <ul><li>Integrating suppliers & customers </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Easy to take orders </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Harder: Send to plant, get feedback </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Greater demands on manufacturing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Make faster, less inventory, MTO </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Notify Business of problems </li></ul><ul><ul><li>React to unplanned plant events </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Execution to plan expected (consistent quality, costs, and schedule) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Supply Chain Impact on Plant <ul><li>FROM </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Safety stocks and buffer inventory </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Focus on plant throughput, efficiency </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Disconnected from customers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Disruptions dealt with in supply chain (plant made what it made) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>TO </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Increased customer service with reduced global inventory </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Plant execution coordinated with enterprise plan </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ATP, Make to stock </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce mfg. variability </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Supply Chain Needs Plant Data <ul><li>Plant: Weakest link in order fulfillment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>But, highest value-add happens there </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Plant performance makes or breaks business </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Raw materials product: low cost, fast </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No access to data to optimize profits </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Raw material prices, product demand </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Need accurate information </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Else, more inventory at both ends of supply chain (i.e., high $$) </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Right Product at Right Time
  11. 11. Business Linked to Production Real-time plant systems enable the supply chain to respond to the market
  12. 12. Plant/Business Integration <ul><li>It’s clear integration important, but... </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Plants and ERP very different </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Real-time vs. transactional </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>IT folks don’t understand plants </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Translate ERP data to plant variables </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Plant systems fragmented </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Many ways to connect plant with ERP </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. Data Requirements <ul><li>Plant </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Real-time & historical data at high resolution (1 second) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Zoom to problem areas for analysis </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Business (ERP, SCM, etc) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Summarized data by major event </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reconciled data, calculations </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>One set of data for plant and business </li></ul></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Transforming Plant Data <ul><li>Calculations </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Business doesn’t want raw data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Example: material produced in batch </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Manual correction & audit trail </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Interface complicated devices </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Plants have significant investments: DCS, PLC, LIMS, SCADA </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Data volume, various protocols </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Overcome geography & culture </li></ul></ul></ul>
