Download Case Study: Manufacturing SCADA, Metadata and SAP Integration
A leading US manufacturer of building materials had an existing automated work order management solution that involved counting maintenance driving metrics on PLC’s, alongside defined trigger points. AVEVA System Platform was then capable of calling SAP (BAPI’s) to trigger the specific work orders associated with predefined work plans.
However, this approach involved making manual changes to PLC’s and AVEVA System Platform with each new device that was encountered, or when new parameters were required. Similarly, when the SAP work order was completed and counters needed to be reset to zero, connections to the PLC would be required to make the change.
This approach carried operational risk with each of these changes, and significant manual effort with each new device or reset process.
