conOS - Operation Scheduling powered by S/4 Hana

We take your interactive planning to a new level. We know the existing possibilities of interactive SAP production planning, such as the PPDS planning boards or the old ERP planning boards inside out and implement them continuously. But our claim is more: With conOS, an SAP add-on, we demonstrate the power of the latest SAP technologies:

Short- and medium-term planning is highly dependent on changes in production progress, goods movements, incoming customer orders and machine conditions. With conOS, such events are immediately included in the planning. This turns interactive planning into a control station or simply a monitor for the shopfloor.

Smart rules support flexible actions on the planning board. This allows you to determine how planning should react to production progress: Let's assume, for example, that a workstation has completed the process faster than planned. Now you can create a model that shows this information immediately in the planning and that allows you to start the subsequent processes on the same workstation earlier.

The standard version runs on S/4 Hana 1909. However, it is even possible with restrictions to use conOS with earlier SAP releases. In addition, we have planned to use conOS in a simple version as a module for SAP ME (Manufacturing Execution, the standard MES solution of SAP) and to process information (progress, machine data) from SAP ME.
