Shopfloor Process Automation

Hi SCN Members,

I need one suggestion from you. Please suggest me which will be helpful for my upcoming project requirement.

Scenario: My upcoming project is FMCG project which is having different types of FMCG product at a single location. They do not want to run SAP transactions manually because its time taking & requires several resource involvement. For that reason we want to go for fully automated SAP system implementation.

How we can do whole SAP process from procurement to pay, from production to delivery as fully automated. At least shop floor process automation is mandatory in initial part. From my point of view, inside ECC system we can develop some custom table & program to make production process automated but it will impact on system efficiency. To avoid this situation we can go for some external automation system like REDWOOD job.

Could you please suggest me what are the external automation system are available in market which we can use for our requirement. Which automation system will be most reliable, user friendly & cheaper. Please provide some information on REDWOOD system.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Siva,

    There are several SAP products designed specifically for your scenario. Take a look at SAP PCo (Plant Connectivity) and SAP MII (Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence).

    Plant Connectivity allows you to connect directly to numerous shop floor systems and equipment and will pass this data to SAP MII which can then visualize the data and/or then transact this data directly in ERP.

    Hope this helps.
