HARTING and SAP demonstrate sensor-controlled processes from the Cloud

Joint exhibit at both trade fair stands at the Hannover Messe 2014 / Vertical integration within the enterprise / Maintenance processes automatically initiated

(PresseBox) (Berlin / Hannover / Espelkamp, ) HARTING Technology Group and software giant SAP are set to collaborate even closer at this year's Hannover Messe (April 7-11, 2014) show. Visitors to the two companies' trade fair stands will be shown the identical exhibit in the field of SMART SERVICES. Both exhibits will be connected to each other via sensors and the Cloud.

A pump will be exhibited to illustrate "the tangible Cloud". This concrete practical example will illustrate extensive vertical integration within the enterprise - meaning all the way from a machine's measurement data to back-end systems and onwards to the management of business processes.

What is new here is that specific maintenance processes can be initiated directly from data monitoring. Sensor readings are transmitted to the Cloud, from where concrete business processes are then performed. The M2M platform relays the system's sensor data into the SAP HANA database. The data is subjected to threshold analysis, meaning that the necessary maintenance tasks are automatically created in SAP ERP when critical values are reached. Planning and optimization of these maintenance tasks then takes place in SAP MRS, with the tasks subsequently sent to the maintenance technician via the SAP Syclo mobile platform. The technician can then carry out the relevant tasks and, if necessary, call up and display disassembly and assembly instructions via SAP Visual Enterprise.

Numerous other scenarios can be implemented using similar processes, e.g. condition based monitoring, predictive analytics, energy management, maintenance planning and asset information. The added value for the user is the latter's ability to implement customized business processes in line with the user's own requirements.
