Horst HeckhornContinues, from 11:00.

The presentation shows how SAP PLM7 core functionalities can help to navigate fast and elegant thru the immense business content “hidden” in SAP.

We’ll demonstrate the seamless integration of 3D CAD authoring environments from Dassault Systèmes and Siemens. You’ll see how we use the 3D CAD data with SAP 3D Visual Enterprise to support your users to make better decisions at an earlier time in the business process. In a realistic industry scenario we’ll explain the process driven data flow from your engineering department to purchasing and manufacturing – for a new product development and for a typical engineering change process. The entire presentation is LIVE – we’ll use slides only where they are helpful for a better understanding of the context!

PLM Special Interest Group meeting - Wednesday before conference

One Topic will be Customer Connection Focus Topic
 "Document Management System" .

The SAP Document Management System (DMS) is a software component relying on a large number of architectural components like Knowledge Provider (KPro), Content and Cache-Server, or TREX search.

Lets discuss status and alternatives since SAP sais they investigated intensely in opportunities of improving the product with a Customer Connection project. The result of our analysis is that till mid of 2013 SAP will not be able to offer a Customer Connection project focusing on the Document Management System. SAP tried to bring together a development team but found that the relevant experts are all staffed in highly prioritized development activities like improvement of the User Interfaces. We are told SAP will check your focus topic request again in mid-2013, and could we joint do someting in this area to speed up the process?

The leadership team om the Special Interest Group Johan Rusaanes, Manager SAP PDM Engineering Systems, FMC Technologies AS, Espen Leknes, Senior Consultant PLM, itelligence AS and EM Fahrer SBN/Adfahrer.

The tracks;

PLM for Portfolio and Project Management. Product development tools etc 

PLM in Process Industries - In process Industrie manufacturing, the products are created by using a formula or recipe to refine raw ingredients and the final product. The product cannot be broken down to its basic components. Aspirin is a product of process manufacturing.

PLM in Discrete Industries - Discrete manufacturing is an industry term for the manufacturing of finished products that are distinct items capable of being easily counted, touched or seen.

A discrete product can be broken down at the end of its lifecycle so its basic components can be recycled (In theory). An automobile is a product of discrete manufacturing.

In discrete manufacturing, the manufacturing floor works off orders to build something. Examples include toys, medical equipment, computers and cars. The resulting products are easily identifiable. In process manufacturing, the products are undifferentiated, for example oil, natural gas and salt.

Discrete manufacturing is often characterized by individual or separate unit production. Units can be produced in low volume with very high complexity or high volumes of low complexity. Low volume/high complexity production results in the need for an extremely flexible manufacturing system that can improve quality and time-to-market speed while cutting costs. High volume/low complexity production puts high premiums on inventory controls, lead times and reducing or limiting materials costs and waste.

Industry Profile - Discrete Manufacturing includes makers of consumer electronics, computer and accessories, appliances, and other household items, as well as "big ticket” consumer and commercial goods like cars and airplanes. Discrete Manufacturing companies make physical products that go directly to businesses and consumers, and assemblies that are used by other manufacturers.

adfahrer logoThe processes deployed in discrete manufacturing are not continuous in nature. Each process can be individually started or stopped and can be run at varying production rates. The final product may be produced out of single or multiple inputs. Producing a steel structure will need only one type of raw material - steel. Producing a mobile phone requires many different inputs, The plastic case, LCD display, the mainboard, PVC keypad, sockets, cables are made from different materials, at different places. This is different from Process manufacturing like production of paper or petroleum refining, where the end product is obtained by a continuous process or a set of continuous processes. Discrete manufacturing process allows for temporary stoppage of work in one area without affecting the entire unit, whereas continuous process manufacturing requires that entire production process be stopped.
