Advanced features available with SAP ME (SAP Manufacturing Execution) 6.1

For some years now, SAP has been offering a powerful MES system in the form of Manufacturing Execution (SAP ME), which represents a perfect addition to the existing functionality in SAP ERP. In this way, existing production planning is extended by making SAP-integrated production control and handling available to the shop-floor.

A host of new features in SAP ME (SAP Manufacturing Execution) 6.1 makes it clear that it has established itself as a "global player" in the broad-based market for MES systems.

  • Additional standard integration scenarios with SAP ERP modules
  • Extended documentation with how-to guides in order to facilitate onboarding
  • Accelerated installation and introduction via user-guided system configuration

Many satisfied users confirm the corresponding advantages (e.g. data synchronicity, ERP-MES process consistency, savings in administrative effort).
