Macon, France – February 1st, 2010 – Sescoi International SAS today announced that version 3 of its
WorkPLAN Enterprise ERP solution for project-based manufacturing has achieved certified integration with SAP® applications. The certification is also valid for the
MyWorkPLAN V3 job management software solution, which is technically identical to WorkPLAN Enterprise V3. Through this certified integration with SAP solutions, Sescoi will provide customers with the ability to exchange data between the WorkPLAN Enterprise ERP or MyWorkPLAN job management systems and SAP applications. Companies will then be able to benefit from the specialized manufacturing and project-management tools built into Sescoi’s software, which are geared towards maximizing productivity and efficiency.
The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that WorkPLAN Enterprise V3 (and implicitely MyWorkPLAN V3, which technically uses the same SAP interface) integrates with the SAP ERP application via the integration scenario for plant data collection for shop-floor controls (PP-PDC 4.6).
“We are delighted to announce the successful achievement of SAP certification for WorkPLAN Enterprise V3,” said Jordi Ferrer, ERP business development manager at Sescoi International. “The ability of WorkPLAN Enterprise and MyWorkPLAN to leverage the business potential of assets provided by solutions from SAP and other vendors will prove highly beneficial to current and future customer engagements.”
WorkPLAN Enterprise and MyWorkPLAN can receive jobs or task lists from SAP ERP, detailing parts and quantities of components to be produced. The software then manages the manufacturing process, including the production planning and scheduling, production performance monitoring, and recording the time spent on each task by each employee or machine in real time, using touch screens, bar-code readers or data-entry forms. Project-based departments or companies, who will particularly benefit from WorkPLAN Enterprise, will be able to manage the complete lifecycle of their products in the software, including a history of engineering changes, quality compliance, and the resources used.
As production proceeds, data can be fed back into the SAP solution in the form of time taken, events completed and parts produced. Detail such as set-up times, processing times, teardown times, quantities completed, reworked or scrapped can be included in the information flow. Real-time recording of this information in WorkPLAN Enterprise helps keep the SAP solution-based system up to date, producing a dynamic exchange of data and safeguards the business information, so when it’s presented to managers, it reflects the true and current status of manufacture.
Global and midsized companies using SAP solutions will benefit from this new integration, which will enable them to optimize the performance of specialized areas within their organizations, such as engineering departments or manufacturing units of molds, dies or prototypes. Specifically, they’ll benefit from the specialist manufacturing management expertise built into WorkPLAN Enterprise and MyWorkPLAN.
