An essential part of Schoeller-Bleckmann‘s success is its knowledge in manufacturing processes and technologies. SAP‘s ERP software is used as the main system in the sales, purchasing, financial accounting and contract manufacturing departments. A separate quality system is deployed in a custom solution.
To causally relate and digitally depict all information, the enterprise content management system from OPTIMAL SYSTEMS (ECM) was implemented. Due to the introduction of digital records, multiple-interlinked elements of the manufacturing process can be depicted in a very transparent way. Altogether, the solution was rapidly accepted by staff members because, on the one hand, proven structures were maintained and, on the other hand, the fast access to all information provides a better overview of processes. Moreover, extensive search possibilities as well as a direct view of digital files provide individual departments with different levels of knowledge.
