A unique selling point of ORSOFT is seamless integration with SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA. Via a SAP SE certified interface, master and transaction data from the modules PP, PP/PI, PM, PS, QM, MM, SD are both being read and transformed into an internal data structure on the basis of which simulation and planning is carried out – the Digital Twin.
Diverse visualization options allow to obtain a comprehensive picture of the overall situation and quickly recognize correlations. This is a clear added value compared to SAP ERP transaction structure.
After planning has been carried out, the results are written back to the SAP ERP in a user-driven manner. SAP ERP is not only used like a database. Moreover, the planning solution is integrated into the business processes of this system. Data objects are transformed, integrative processing steps are triggered, releases are carried out, data is added and modified. This process integration is an important distinctive feature compared to classic interface technologies.
This Digital Twin also dissolves boundaries between planning levels and production. Every change made in a subsystem or the SAP ERP is available in real time in the Digital Twin and is immediately integrated into planning.
Feedback from production and usage decisions in quality control have an influence on operational planning and available stocks, and the effects on cross-plant medium-term planning are checked at the same time; a mandatory prerequisite for being able to plan and control the entire supply chain with ever shorter response times.
