MES solution from T.CON now certified "powered by SAP NetWeaver"

MES CAT Suite gets seal of approval

Plattling, February 26, 2013

The MES CAT Suite from SAP system provider T.CON, a state-of-the-art multi-lingual Manufacturing Execution System (MES), has received the "Powered by SAP NetWeaver" certificate from SAP Deutschland AG & Co. KG. With this seal of approval, the SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) confirms that MES CAT is 100% based on SAP NetWeaver technology, can be fully integrated into SAP ERP without interfaces and is ready for release without limitation.

Internationally operating manufacturing companies which carry out production in different locations and use SAP ERP can expand their standard SAP processes to include additional functions without making modifications using the Manufacturing Execution System from T.CON. On the one hand, data and key performance indicators from the manufacturing process can already be seamlessly integrated into the business information flow of the ERP solution as soon as it is generated and then be called up with the push of a button. This provides the management and factory managers with a continuous real-time view of production performance figures which serves as an important decision-making aid for managing machines, systems and personnel more efficiently and utilizing them in an optimum way. On the other hand, released manufacturing orders from SAP ERP are immediately available in the MES solution and therefore at the production factories as well, where the orders can then be processed without delay. This reduces processing time and increases delivery reliability in the eyes of the customer. The offline capability of the MES application ensures high availability of the manufacturing systems.

Companies choosing the "powered by SAP NetWeaver"-certified MES CAT Suite make the best use of their IT budget, since introduction projects can be completed quickly. Here, the application is delivered to the customer by T.CON after some pre-settings have been made and stored in the "SAP Business Configuration Sets". Cost-related benefits can also be gained in the area of end-user licensing, as the solution is qualified for the "SAP Platform User License" (PUL) model. MES CAT can also be implemented on any SAP NetWeaver installation, since a separate namespace is reserved in the SAP ERP system for the software. Last but not least, the documentation created by T.CON for the MES CAT Suite complies with current SAP guidelines.

"By certifying the MES CAT Suite as 'powered by SAP NetWeaver', SAP is confirming that our MES solution is based on leading-edge SAP technology, can be fully integrated into an existing SAP infrastructure and is not release-sensitive. Manufacturing companies using MES CAT therefore profit from high investment security and get a real-time view of their production activity, providing them with a lot of commercial benefits," explained Karl Fuchs, CEO of T.CON GmbH & Co. KG.
