Accelerate Production for Spirit AeroSystems
Accelerate Production for Spirit AeroSystems
The manufacture and assembly of massive fuselage assemblies and other large structures generates a river of data. In fact, the bill of materials for a single fuselage alone can be millions of rows of data. In-house production processes and testing, as well as other manufacturers and customers created data flows that overwhelmed previous processes and information systems. Spirit’s customer base had grown substantially since their 2005 divestiture from Boeing, resulting in a $41 billion backlog of orders to fill. To address this backlog, meet increased customer demands and minimize additional capital investment, the company needed a way to improve throughput in the existing operational footprint. Spirit had a requirement from customers to increase fuselage production by 30%. To accomplish this goal, Spirit needed real-time information on its value chain and workflow. However, the two terabytes of data being pulled from their SAP ECC was unmanageable and overloaded their business warehouse. It had become time-consuming and difficult to pull aggregate data, disaggregate it for the needed information and then reassemble to create a report. During the 6-8 hours it took to build a report, another work shift (they run three per day) would have already taken place, thus the report content was out-of-date before it was ever delivered. As a result, supervisors often had to rely on manual efforts to provide charts, reports and analysis.

Dole processes 48,000 purchase orders each year from farmers across several countries and regions. In order to shorten the PO process, Dole needed to centralize all data and standardize and automate the tools, information, and practices used to manage procurement processes across the region, to save precious time and money. The company looked to SAP to streamline the entire procure-to-pay process.

Schaidt Innovations was purely a production site with no ERP IT infrastructure when started. So the company needed an ERP system and there was no time for a long, drawn-out implementation. And Schaidt did not have the resources or funding to invest in ERP IT development, customization, and support.

Asset Intelligence Network
SAP’s Asset Intelligence Network (AIN) is a secure cloud-based information exchange for equipment manufacturers, operators and maintenance providers in asset-intensive industriesBuilt on SAP’s HANA Cloud Platform, AIN (now generally available) will receive quarterly updates of new functionality based in part on early adopters’ feedback on future use casesSAP is working to tighten integration between AIN and its Predictive Maintenance and Service monitoring and analytics software.What AIN aims to provide is a single and central secure-cloud repository where OEMs, equipment operators and those firms which maintain that equipment can input or access all the latest information about the equipment they manufacture, use or service regardless of that content’s format.Using AIN, a manufacturer could make available all the content about each of its products, including manuals and maintenance recommendations. An equipment operator could then readily access any of that data as well as contribute updates on the particular configurations it’s using (via data from SAP ERP and Enterprise Asset Management) as well as real-time information from the equipment itself (through data from smart sensors attached to the equipment—think Internet of Things).

Object Management Group (OMG)
Object Management Group (OMG)
Object Management Group (OMG) is international, open membership, not-for-profit technology standards consortium. OMG standards are driven by vendors, end-users, academic institutions and government agencies. OMG Task Forces develop enterprise integration standards for a wide range of technologies and an even wider range of industries. OMG’s modeling standards, including the Unified Modeling Language® (UML®) and Model Driven Architecture® (MDA®), enable powerful visual design, execution and maintenance of software and other processes. OMG also hosts organizations such as the user-driven information-sharing Cloud Standards Customer Council™ (CSCC™) and the IT industry software quality standardization group, the Consortium for IT Software Quality™ (CISQ™). OMG also manages the Industrial Internet Consortium, the public-private partnership that was formed in 2014 with AT&T, Cisco, GE, IBM, and Intel to forward the development, adoption, and innovation of the Industrial IoT.Our members include hundreds of organizations including software end-users in over two dozen vertical markets (from finance to healthcare and automotive to insurance) and virtually every large organization in the technology industry. OMG’s one organization- one vote policy ensures that every member organization- whether large or small- has an effective voice in our voting process. At OMG, specification adoption is the starting point rather than the end of the process. Our “No Shelf-ware” policy bars all proposed specifications that do not have an implementation plan from being adopted by OMG. This guarantees that all OMG specifications are immediately useable. Furthermore, we do not just focus on the specification itself - we focus on the whole product: with corresponding seminars, workshops, certification, books and more! OMG hosts four technical meetings throughout the year. These meetings give OMG members and interested nonmembers the opportunity to collaborate in a centralized location, learn about technology standards products and processes at tutorials, and attend special information day events on current trending hot topics. While technical meetings provide a centralized location for Task Forces and Working Groups to work together, they are merely checkpoints with the bulk of the work between members taking place electronically via email, teleconferences, and on wikis.In addition to technical meetings, OMG acts as event producer for conferences and workshops for its members around the world, including the Internationalization & Unicode Conference.OMG maintains liaison relationships with dozens of other organizations including ISO (which publishes many OMG standards without edits), Health Level Seven (HL7), and the Data Transparency Coalition.

The Industrial Internet Consortium was founded in March 2014 to bring together the organizations and technologies necessary to accelerate the growth of the Industrial Internet by identifying, assembling and promoting best practices. Membership includes small and large technology innovators, vertical market leaders, researchers, universities and government organizations.Industrial Internet Consortium Working Groups coordinate and establish the priorities and enabling technologies of the Industrial Internet in order to accelerate market adoption and drive down the barriers to entry. There are currently 19 Working Groups and teams, broken into 7 broad areas: • Business Strategy and Solution Lifecycle• Legal• Marketing• Membership• Security• Technology• TestbedsThese groups are comprised of Industrial Internet Consortium member company representatives. Member companies can assign an unlimited number of individuals to the Working Groups, which follows the one vote, one company rule.Testbeds are a major focus and activity of the Industrial Internet Consortium and its members. The Testbed Working Group accelerates the creation of testbeds for the Industrial Internet and serves as the advisory body for testbed proposal activities for our members. It is the centralized group which collects testbed ideas from our member companies and provides the members with systematic yet flexible guidance for new testbed proposals. Our testbeds are where the innovation and opportunities of the Industrial Internet – new technologies, new applications, new products, new services, new processes – can be initiated, thought through, and rigorously tested to ascertain their usefulness and viability before coming to market. Learn more about testbeds in general and specific testbeds below.
