Keywords: SAP PP-PI, PI-sheet, weighing, ERP scale, weighin bar, Digitalization, Reporting
The legacy weighing system used in the plant in China needed an upgrade due to several reasons, and the decision was to implement a new and improved weighing solution based on SAP PI-sheet functionality.
The new solution has now been used for a week, and the feedback from the weighing operators is very positive. Some of the statements are:
- The weighing PI-sheet provides a complete overview on the weighing process.
- The new process has simplified the process: Non-value adding process steps in the old solution were removed.
- Increased visibility through a weighing bar supports the operator and reduces the risk of errors.
Tianjin's Manufacturing head Yuzhong Peng adds that the new solution complies fully with data integrity requirements and that there are significant savings on maintenance and service cost.
