SAP DMe Digital production control

What is SAP DMe?

SAP Digital Manufacturing for Execution (SAP DMe) is one of the functional components ofSAP Digital Manufacturing. SAP DMe is a cloud-based production control system for the detailed planning and control of orders and the targeted execution of all production processes.

What are the functions of SAP DMe?

SAP DMe connects the administrative ERP level with the store floor. It serves as a central production control system that can be used to precisely adjust and control the order-related use of resources and the work steps in production.

Workers are guided via easy-to-understand, graphical user interfaces(Production Operator Dashboards, PODs for short) , which virtually eliminates assembly errors. They can edit processes on these predefined PODs and adapt them individually to the requirements of the respective process. The POD functionalities range from simple order start and completion functions to the visualization of work instructions and complex, quality-assuring process steps.

The seamless, bidirectional connection of machines can be easily implemented using SAP Plant Connectivity (PCo)/Production Connector. This allows master data and transaction data to be synchronized from the ERP system to the store floor. All data generated during the production process is stored in full and can be viewed via the store floor control number (SFC, the unique ID of a product). This enables one hundred percent traceability, which means that all statutory quality requirements are met.

SAP DMe meets the requirements of modern, decentralized manufacturing companies by enabling manufacturing systems to be networked across large distances .

What are the advantages of SAP DMCe?

  • Detailed detailed planning and control of individual operational work steps down to workstation level
  • Central production control system for clear, transparent presentation of all production processes
  • Highly configurable, flexible Production Operator Dashboards as an interface between employee and machine
  • Display of work instructions (3D models, videos, PDFs, etc.)

  • End-to-end traceability - from production progress to the analysis of all recorded product data
  • Error recording and analysis
  • Machine connectivity - bidirectional connection of production systems from different manufacturers, direct connection of e.g. PLCs or systems
