Digital Enterprise Core – Efficient core processes with SAP

Smart digitalization solutions for efficient processes

In the area of Digital Enterprise Core, we consult and support our customers in all logistic & operational processes. Efficient end-to-end processes play an important role in every company and our goal is to create the best possible process security and transparency with the lowest possible transaction costs for our customers. For many companies, the SAP ERP (ECC or S/4) system is more than ever the central core application for many business-critical processes. The expectations of the stakeholders of these processes have been rising for some years now in terms of usability and openness (as summarized in sales, for example, under the term “customer journey”), process penetration and transparency (as it is increasingly becoming standard in manufacturing processes) or mobility (individual process steps are performed on different devices). In addition to the new possibilities of an SAP S/4 HANA system, additional applications (SAP or non-SAP, on-premise or increasingly cloud) are used for this purpose.

concircle creates digitalization solutions that meet current business requirements on the basis of an integrated, efficient and manageable application landscape. So that your company remains unique.

Processes

Request to Order Processing

Customer inquiries are often non-binding. The seller should first check the price at which a certain product can be delivered; this is followed by an offer and order. The process behind this can be very complex, which is why product configuration dialogs, from warehouse queries to production inquiries, must be mastered. IT-supported processes ensure fast, reliable and centralized handling. We offer

  • Easy handling of complex configuration dialogs (SAP Variant Configuration, SAP Business Rules Framework)
  • Online Configuration options with modern SAP Backend Connection
  • Global availability check (market allocation, worldwide product availability, simulative production requests)
  • Evaluations of stock levels (SAP Business Warehouse Analyses)
Production Data Acquisition

With modern tools such as build.me from SAP we can very quickly create prototypes for UI5 PDA applications. These are created directly with the end users. We then implement these mock-ups in short sprints and can realize very short lead times. Our project experience spans materials management, production and maintenance processes. In the backend we consistently rely on the standard processes of SAP. In workplace design, we consult on the correct use of mobile or stationary hardware or the moderate use of paper or other means of identification.

Procurement and Production Planning

The timely provision of products to customer requirements is a multi-stage process; the decisive factor here is the stocking level. Sales planning is used to stock products or materials in the right quantities to keep delivery times short. Make-or-buy decisions are made and capacity bottlenecks and setup optimization problems are solved. Production planning is divided into different horizons, whereby a distinction is made between long-term capacity planning and detailed planning on a shift-by-shift basis.

Product Structure Management / Variant Configuration

Product structure management is used to create hierarchical relationships between the components of a product – these form the product structure. A product structure includes material masters, parts lists and work plans. The classification of material masters supports the reuse of materials and thus reduces the planning effort. We are specialized in the area of variant configuration via flexible rules and offer with conFIGURE an innovative solution in the SAP environment.

Warehouse Logistics

We approach warehouse logistics from the digitalization side. Instead of old-fashioned warehouse solutions, we consistently rely on integrative warehouse processes and state-of-the-art logistics apps. Together with the hardware of our partner Zebra, we have already implemented numerous warehouse applications from classic barcodes to 2d barcodes and RFID solutions.

Intralogistics

Intralogistics refers to the logistical flow of materials and goods within a company’s premises – in contrast to the transport of goods outside a factory. Thanks to better handhelds and extensive network coverage, logistics functions such as reading RFID and NFC chips, as well as personnel logins, time account access and quality checks, are increasingly mobile.

Maintenance Management

The active organization of internal company maintenance tasks is becoming increasingly important. Measures such as inspection, maintenance and repair are used to assess the current status and to maintain and restore the target status. Processes such as these are increasingly being handled on a mobile basis. Our solutions range from order entry to the execution of maintenance tasks and feedback of the results – simple and user-friendly.

Quality Management

Quality describes the extent to which a product meets previously defined criteria. Quality management thus includes all measures to improve the product and service quality of a company. This begins with the incoming goods inspection, continues with quality-specific process data acquisition and ends with customer-specific test protocols. For integrated solutions, complex system landscapes such as ERP, MES, warehouse systems, LIMS or plant control systems often have to be mastered.

Complaint Management

If a product does not meet the customer’s expectations, a complaint will be made. Complaint management thus serves the structured processing of complaints. The aim is to identify problems and implement process improvements. For this purpose we offer SAP ERP based processes with modern, web-based SAP UI5 front-end. This ensures a fast and convenient complaints system already in the field service.

Master Data Management

Increasing process complexity and rising data volumes – to master these challenges, systematic master data management is required. Master data management describes the strategic management of master data, the basic, constant data of a company.

Ideas Management and CIP

Kaizen, also called CIP (continuous improvement process), is used with the goal of continuous process optimization – there is great potential here. Modern IT tools enable mobile data collection and increase the transparency of the processes handled. Thanks to access to existing data, information can be retrieved and evaluated at a later date. Through continuous innovation management new ideas can be implemented.
