Order Cockpit 4.0 - Maximum transparency across all production orders

Scheduled production or process orders are made available from SAP ERP (SAP Enterprise Resource Planning) (PP) after release in SAP ME/MII (SAP Manufacturing Execution/Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence) for production control. 

With SAP ME/MII-based (SAP Manufacturing Execution/Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence) detailed scheduling (interactive graphical console), with the inclusion of current shop floor information such as the current machine status, the jobs can be distributed and started taking into account the necessary and available resources on the available machines. 

Taking account of current shop floor information such as current machine status, all orders can be distributed considering the necessary and available resources on the available machines, due to the detailed scheduling (interactive graphical console) based on SAP ME/MII (SAP Manufacturing Execution/Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence).

The extremely high transparency across all production orders ensures optimum planning and the taking of secure decisions with simultaneous high resource utilisation.

Order Cockpit 4.0 Overview

  • Order fine-tuningTransparency of forthcoming, ongoing and processed production orders with graphic replanning function
  • Optimal asset utilisation
  • Exact planning of the production sequence, optimisation and readjustment ensures maximum tool utilisation and uniform utilisation of production capacity
  • Optimal resource utilisation
  • Assignment of orders to machines and systems, display of set-up times and visualisation of milestone breaches directly in production. Set planned downtime, order splitting and correction of order overlaps
  • Order Management
  • Deadline and quantity compliant order control and resource procurement of construction orders
  • Manual fine-tuning of the priorities
  • Optimisation of production processes and increasing productivity through improved resource allocation, production control and detailed planning
  • Avoidance of costly retooling
  • Avoidance of product changes or grade change to achieve meaningful production capacity. The fine-tuning of campaigns is also supported to minimise costly retooling and to increase productivity
