Variant Configuration in SAP

Last 5th July DERWID attended the 11th Conference about Variant Manufacturing and Variant Management in Sankt Leon – Rot, organized by Sybit together with SAP and msg treorbis.

We explained the highlights of 3D Configuration in SAP Fiori in partnership with msg Treorbis and the unlimited possibilities of Variant Configuration.  As a matter of fact, the production of the future needs to be always faster, more individual, more intuitive to continue to satisfy the wishes of customers.

It is increasingly important to be able to easily configure and order even complex machines, tools, components or devices adapted to specific needs online. Variant configuration thus gains new and important importance – also for management.

INDUSTRY 4.0 and the supply chain integration

For the regular operation of a business, to manage at best the purchase and sales process is fundamental. The key to optimizing these processes is a solution to automate the communications with suppliers, customers and business partners, that could integrate all data and flows related to the supply chain. All this, in particular if we consider the current context of Industry 4.0.

Industry 4.0: innovation of processes

If we think about Industry 4.0, we immediately imagine the factory, now “smart” – as a place where something is manufactured. But Industry 4.0 is more than this: it is an innovation of processes, which involves also other departments in the company, and indeed, not only a single company is interested, but also all the actors in the chain, or rather network.

Today the consumer is the center. The traditional value chain evolves and becomes a collaborative network, it is no more a value chain but a value network, thanks to the new technologies, such as the Internet of Things, social media, cloud and big data.

In order to reach the goal to mass-produce according to a more flexible logic, and therefore offering increasingly personalized products to customers, innovative and more efficient ways of production, but also for the procurement of raw materials, are searched. Just in time and individual production of the factory 4.0 leads to a stock reduction, both incoming and outgoing: therefore the procurement of raw materials is less foreseeable.

The interoperability between companies and data safely exchanged in real time are fundamental to develop this new collaborative logic in the context of Industry 4.0. Many are the resulting advantages: from cost reduction to an increased speed in processes.

Business Integration for the supply chain

In order to ensure the full interoperability and automate the communications, regardless of the type of partner or its origin and of the technologies used (formats, channels, etc.), it is essential to adopt flexible and reliable solutions, that allow a safe, accurate and precise data exchange.

DERWID, with the business integration platform D/bip, offers the ideal tool for a secure electronic data interchange, an any to any converter suitable for any type of format – without limits.

To exchange and manage automatically all the data related to your supply chain won’t be a problem anymore.

D/bip enables the management of both transmissions for the sales cycle and for the purchasing cycle. Thanks to the integrated and automated management of orders, order confirmations, delivery notes, invoices and many other types of documents, you could increase savings and efficiency.

Traditionally the first automated flows are orders and invoices. Thanks to the integrated management of orders and invoices:

  • you eliminate data entry risks
  • you rapidly receive orders and all is documented
  • you automate also price checking processes
  • you eliminate the manual entry of price lists
  • the invoice is automatically checked according to the previous corresponding documents in the flow
  • and therefore you only have to manage anomalies

If you fully automate the management of other documents such as order confirmations, etc., the optimization and advantages further increase.

If you automate also the delivery notes flow, it is possible to improve the management of goods receipt and unloading.

In fact with a delivery note, the sender forwards to the receiver a note to inform him of the goods arrival on a given day, with a list of the materials that will be delivered. If you automate the process, you could anticipate the goods taking over operations in the warehouse and automatically check the material that will be delivered according to the orders. Moreover, if you receive previously a detailed list of the materials in the packaging and pallets, it is possible to automatically prepare also the labels, with all the information necessary for the storage (production lot, expiration, weight, volume, etc.): so it is possible to uniform the labels management inside the warehouse.

Thanks to the integrated management of the delivery notes:

  • you anticipate the operations for goods receipt, such as the place preparation in the warehouse, etc.
  • you improve the handling of labels
  • the document is already verified according to the order/order confirmation
