SAP Manufacturing Execution

With today’s global manufacturing enterprises, it’s more important than ever to implement tools that can streamline your workflow while increasing visibility across your organization. Maintaining a competitive edge requires meeting new challenges head on. Manufacturing plants and teams are often scattered around the world, often using different, and sometimes legacy, software systems to manage workflow. This makes it difficult to track data or provide accurate information and analytics across plant sites and work in progress. This lack of information can easily result in inconsistent processes and delayed delivery schedules. Successful, competitive companies use tools that provide visibility into data and processes from the shop floor to the executive office.

Drive better productivity — from the top down

Ciber’s Manufacturing Execution System (MES) powered by SAP’s Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (MII) application, provides clarity for production, warehouse and maintenance personnel with fewer risks and lower costs than a traditional implementation.

  • Dispatching
  • Order prioritization and sequencing
