SEAMLESS HANDOVER FROM PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT TO MANUFACTURING
Factory Control Center | FCTR supports manufacturing planning with a seamless data flow between Product Development and Manufacturing.
The starting point is the release of product data, such as CAD models, drawings, bills of materials, etc. Subsequently, the tool data and NC data are generated to provide all the information required for the manufacturing process. Based on the control mechanisms of the SAP planning processes, it is ensured that all data, tools, and other operating resources are available on time, at the right machine.
It is very convenient to have all these steps carried out by an automated process, fully integrated in SAP. Because of this, Manufacturing Planning can be certain to access the most recent data at any time. In addition, there is process security and transparency for all involved parties.
