Integration between SAP MES and SAP ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) or S/4HANA is crucial for seamlessly coordinating a company's manufacturing processes and ensuring that production data and resources are managed efficiently. SAP not only offers standard interfaces to all relevant SAP ERP modules, but also fully thought-out end-to-end integration scenarios in order to optimally map the respective processes across systems.
This includes the integration of the following ERP modules:
- SAP PP (SAP Production Planning and Control)
- SAP PP/DS (SAP Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling)
- SAP QM (SAP Quality Management)
- SAP PM (SAP Plant Maintenance)
- SAP EWM (SAP Extended Warehouse Management)
- SAP HCM (SAP Human Capital Management)
- SAP Success Factors
The most important advantages at a glance:
- Provision of various end-to-end integration scenarios including best practices
- Standardized and cross-system data semantics
- Maintenance-friendly standard interfaces
- Upgrade and release capability
- Error reduction through consistent processes based on SAP standard software
To ensure that the right materials are always available at the right workplace at the right time during production, all the systems involved need to interact with each other. We at IGZ recognized the central importance of this interaction in the form of seamless integration at an early stage and soon implemented the first highly integrated, cross-divisional SAP projects from production (SAP MES) and logistics (SAP EWM). The know-how gained in the process was implemented in the form of best-practice solutions based exclusively on SAP standard software, which have made a significant contribution to the functional scope of SAP standard products as we know them today.
SAP MES includes various end-to-end integration scenarios to provide companies with end-to-end process modeling for common integration scenarios between production and logistics (in conjunction with SAP EWM).
Further advantages of integrating SAP MES and SAP EWM:
- Master and transaction data can be tracked and used across systems
- Integration enables inventory and online transparency, machine integration and process optimization, among other things
- Comprehensive process and inventory transparency as well as an unhindered flow of information in the warehouse and production
- Automated "just-in-time" provision based on MES planning data
- Optimized production capacity utilization due to increased flexibility
- More efficient order picking and savings in storage space as well as a reduction in stock in circulation and inventory levels

Given the challenging times we live in, integrated production logistics is an often underestimated success factor. In this white paper, you will therefore learn about the benefits of an integrated process organization (for example in the form of MES-controlled provision for production supply) and how you can integrate and implement this with the familiar SAP solutions.
