Enics Schweiz AG achieves higher transparency in production with SAP MES

Production transparency improved by a step-by-step expansion towards uniform traceability for production processes This was achieved by using the future-oriented SAP Manufacturing Execution Platform (SAP ME).

Enics Schweiz AG is the top technology partner in the field of industrial electronics and medical devices. The universal and integrated solutions the company offers are based on a comprehensive palette of services within engineering, manufacturing, after-sales , and demand and supply chain management.

For reasons of efficiency and capacity, the Supervisory Board and Management Board decided to invest in comprehensive optimisation work on warehouse and production logistics at the company's Turgi site, so as to increase transparency while also standardising production processes.

This step was necessary not only to ensure the reliability of production for the future, but also to honour the company's vision of "becoming the leading EMS provider in industrial electronics and medical devices worldwide".

To improve production efficiency, the choice was made to deploy SAP Manufacturing Execution (ME). This represents the systematic expansion of the SAP ME (SAP Manufacturing Execution) IT strategy adopted by Enics. With board-level traceability, setup optimisations (MSL classification management) and ERP integration for initial data, significant improvements have been achieved in online transparency. The related analyses and reports are completed using Business Objects. A further requirement is SIPLACE interfacing for SMD traceability per board. SAP-machine connectivity (SMD handling machinery) has resulted in simplifications to working processes.

With its company-wide SAP ME (SAP Manufacturing Execution) strategy, Enics Schweiz AG has set its sights on a uniform system architecture by deploying an integrated, consistent solution to all of its manufacturing facilities.

"The deployment of this innovative SAP SCM technology plus SAP Manufacturing Execution (SAP ME) to boost our efficiency and transparency means that we can now face the future in confidence. With our reliable partner IGZ at our side, we have been able to benefit from their extensive logistics and SAP expertise and bring innovative ideas into our logistics optimisation work."
