Erfurt was planning their sales activities with the help of a sub system. This quite complicated planning was no longer up-to-date. Figures from the ERP system were not used and a synchronization of data was only with many efforts. T.CON provided the solution. On the basis of SAP BW, T.CON implemented the Integrated Business Planning (IBP) for showing any planning scenarios with the help of different recognised standard algorithms. Available data from SAP ERP but also forecast figures provided by each business manager can create the basis for different planning scenarios. Our solution supports all associates to make their planning processes to run smoothly, efficient and transparent.

Our certified MES system ensures ideal interaction of SAP ERP and MES; the quality of production data could have been improved considerably with the solid data basis in MES. But how to manage and evaluate this growing amount of data? T.CON implemented a Big Data analysis tool based on Hadoop. Steinbeis now works with a tool which flexibly combines any process parameters in real time with the corresponding visualisation. Difficulties during the production process can be detected immediately so that measures can be taken if necessary.
For one of our most important long-term customers, we have been able to create considerable added values associated with their group reporting and were involved in the development of a group-wide BI strategy.

Valid key figures are necessary indicators for the current situation, core processes are faster and more efficient. SAP can fully document and follow all processes at any time; raw material and all components of each product can be traced back. This transparency is necessary also to meet with the compliance guidelines e.g. of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other international regulations.
