Safety features assurance in manufacturing plants by SAP

Hi Experts,

I'm inquisitive to know how does SAP Manufacturing look into solutions regarding safety aspects in manufacturing plants. Any thoughts?

For an instance, if you are reffering to any chemical plant, where 2 hazardous chemicals flow into a reactor through 2 different pipes, can we monitor that the vessels or pipes are not contaminated by water or any other chemical polutants through any functionality of SAP ME/MII?

Can we put a check on any sort of oversimplified mistakes done by a plant operator and revert it back before the process goes wrong?

    SAP ME is more suitable for discrete manufacturing rather than for chamical production - see here.

    But anyway, SAP ME has notification mechanism which,for example, can be triggered by violating limits of Data Collection Group parameters which can be collected automatically by shop floor machines and sent to SAP ME. So, with some customization to basic SAP ME, the solution can be tailored to the needs of your case. The main question is how to map your production process into SAP ME master data.

    The most wonderful thing about SAP Manufacturing software is its ability to expand on efficiency. Writing the correct data into the conditions will result in a desired effect. You should discuss this with your IT section or Supply Chain SAP ERP Manager. Remember, the system is growing, and it is capable of being given advanced instruction.

    I hope this helped.
