Let's get in touch.

Plattling-based SAP developer T.CON GmbH & Co. KG will be present at this year’s IT & Business in Stuttgart (October 23 – 25, 2012), guided by the slogan “Keep Up with Your Production Operations – Anytime, Anywhere.” The company will be focusing on the subjects of full ERP implementation, enterprise mobility, and SAP Rapid Deployment Solutions (SAP RDS) for the manufacturing industry.
Visitors who come to Hall 3, Booth F14 will be able to learn more about how SAP ERP and SAP Business-All-in-One solutions that are perfect for medium-sized businesses can help their companies fully map their value chains in an integrated manner and improve the efficiency and transparency of their processes – all the way from the receipt of orders to their shop floor.
To this end, the IT consulting specialist will be showcasing its pre-configured, industry-specific “T.CON All-in-One Rolls” software package, which is designed to be quickly implemented and is custom-tailored to meet the needs of companies that make and process reels, rolls, folio-size goods, and cut-size goods from a variety of materials. The application combines the advantages of SAP ERP with those of T.CON’s MES CAT Suite manufacturing execution solution, which is completely based on SAP technology.
This makes it possible to seamlessly integrate real-time data and KPIs from production into operational information flows, enabling management to better steer their company’s business thanks to the ability to quickly and flexibility adapt production processes to market changes. Moreover, the aforementioned KPIs provide important reference points for effectively improving product quality and increasing machine efficiency. This should come as no surprise, as the best-practice template is the result of T.CON’s extensive know-how and familiarity with the industry (a result of the company’s years of providing the sector with consulting services) and expands SAP’s standard functionalities with new ones that are invaluable for businesses in the field. These include, for instance, package tracking, production and block planning, cutting plans, cut optimization, and formulation management.
As for the subject of enterprise mobility, the SAP developer will be showcasing a series of mobile solutions that allow users to access real-time data from the SAP backend at any time, any place, and on any mobile device and that are designed to boost productivity. A perfect example is MES CAT mobile, which enables managers to look at the latest orders, machine utilization levels, and production KPIs on an iPad with a single swipe. In addition, a graphic planning table that can be used on iPads and other tablet computers shows information from the SAP work orders for each machine in a clearly laid out manner.
Meanwhile, T.CON’s “Mobile Maintenance Management” (MMM) and “Mobile Warehouse Management” (MWM) add-on solutions, which communicate seamlessly with SAP ERP, can be used to carry out maintenance and warehouse management processes with IT assistance, resulting in greater data quality. And, in addition to this, T.CON’s consultants will be showcasing SAP Mobile Platform-based mobile apps designed to make travel expense and expense report workflows easier and faster.
Finally, the company will be presenting the “SAP RDS for Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS)” and “SAP RDS for global Available-to-Promise-Check (gATP)” Rapid Deployment Solutions, which help improve internal supply chain processes and can be fully deployed and ready to work in 14 to 16 weeks. “SAP RDS for APS” is designed to ensure reliable production planning so that machine loads and warehouse stocks can be optimized, while “SAP RDS for gATP-Check” performs automatic availability checks for end products in order to ensure that delivery dates can always be met. These and other SAP RDS solutions are made up of pre-configured software and set implementation services.
