Production key figures at a glance
delfortgroup AG optimized their production processes across the company with the implementation of T.CON’s MES CAT Suite. Production workflows could have been improved and are even more efficient now. The software is integrated seamlessly into the central SAP ERP system. A detailed analysis of latest key figures in production is possible at any time with the smooth exchange of data between all applications. At the same time SAP production orders are immediately sent to every machine so that there is no delay and production can be started. Our MES solution is installed locally; this increases the availability of machines.
Koehler is ready for Industry 4.0
Koehler implemented MES CAT all over the company and created an integrated solution for their production data acquisition. Production orders and any other goods movements are confirmed in real time and can be analysed immediately. In the context of Industry 4.0, they are working on follow-up projects in order to digitalise production more and more. All relevant machine data are analysed in real time in MES CAT and help production staff make decisions on solid figures. Even during production, production staff can intervene if necessary with the focus on reducing optimization times. With the application “Predictive Quality”, production can be run in compliance with quality specifications. Quality can be improved and scrap quantities reduced because all specifications can easily be checked and monitored.
More transparent production processes and cost analyses across all production steps
Due to the diversity of the products manufactured, the production area at Rapunzel is characterized by many different processes. A Manufacturing Execution System (MES) should digitally map this part of the value creation. Controlling could thus also work with data from production in SAP. Production and logistics processes could be further optimized. "We had the goal of making our production processes more transparent and enabling cost analyses across all production steps," says Roth.
Steinbeis Papier is one of the leading manufacturers in the paper recycling industry in Europe. For many years, they have been using SAP ERP and SAP APO for their supply chain.

Almost three centuries ago, in 1725, a family in Spain produced paper by hand. Today Miquel y Costas & Miquel is a global paper manufacturer, specialised in lightweight and fine papers. As the years went on and the company grew, Miquel y Costas & Miquel saw a need to find a new trim solution, which matched their requirements and growth. They decided for T.CON’s trim optimization solution TRIM SUITE, since it best tackles the additional complexity in terms of product variety in their plants. Above all, the aspects that impressed them the most were: Ability to trim sheet, reams and reels at the same time, stock management of reels, in-house and external cutting, customizability and integration in SAP. The project implementation took place entirely remotely and was a complete success.
