Industry Sectors

Every industry and every company has special procedural and operational characteristics. Therefore, it is difficult for users to work efficiently within the processes for production and logistics with just the standard ERP system.

From the perspective of the central IT department, deviating from the standard could put release ability at risk and is thus not permissible. With ORSOFT Manufacturing Workbench, the procedural requirements are covered by standard software while ensuring the release ability of the ERP system.

ORSOFT solutions are used in different industry sectors:

  • in the manufacturing industry (machine construction, assembly line manufacturing, foundry, individual and series producers, automotive, steel, high-tech)
  • in the process industries (food processing, chemical and pharmaceutical industry, lubricant industry, refineries)
  • in the consumer goods sector (textiles, packaging, food, dairy ...)
  • in hospital planning

In each of these sectors, there are special processes mapped into the software to improve the planning result. Examples of some specific technical processes may be mentioned, which can be found in the ORSOFT Manufacturing Workbench for SAP® ERP, which is mapped and planned based on the SAP® ERP model without a second data storage:

  • continuous material throughputs and semi-continuous production
  • combined production
  • shelf life (ORSOFT Shelf Life)
  • parameter-based (feature-based) planning
  • tank- and silo management
  • energy balance calculations; fire and environmental loads

Especially this exact implementation of specific processes is often a competitive advantage of a company. Due to its unique technological concept, ORSOFT Manufacturing Workbench is able to integrate specific technological processes into the leading ERP system, without creating a second data storage or disrupting the release capability.
