SAP Digital Manufacturing is a manufacturing execution system (MES) of near real-time data and analytics. It helps you connect your top-floor business systems to your shop-floor equipment for global visibility across all plants, while orchestrating execution and monitoring production operations down to the individual work center.
In this course, we’ll provide an introduction to key functionality for each component of SAP Digital Manufacturing by walking through a simplified manufacturing process. The course will cover both process and discrete manufacturing, including equipment automation in SAP Digital Manufacturing for execution, scheduling in SAP Digital Manufacturing for resource orchestration, and monitoring production KPIs in SAP Digital Manufacturing for insights.
