Siemens AG: Inventory optimisation of high voltage arresters

Starting point

  • Replacement of a PC-DOS-based program for production planning and control used for the calculation of a non-linear high-voltage arrester
  • Reduction of inventory points by optimising the extraction algorithm

Solution

  • Analysis of legacy systems and design of target processes
  • Creation of product specifications for the implementation in SAP R/3
  • Design and specification of optimising the calculation algorithm for the design of arresters
  • Design of necessary configuration adaption in SAP Warehouse Management System
  • Project management as well as control of programming

Success

  • Complete product requirements / direct input for programming
  • Specification of optimised arrester extraction algorithm for the inventory reduction and consignment execution
  • Standardisation of production planning processes in SAP
