3The Brose Group Implements SAP – One Site at a Time (1) The Brose Group supplies windows, doors, seat adjusters, and related products for more than 40 auto brands.In the 1990s, Brose enjoyed rapid growth but found that existing information system were unable to support the company’s emerging needs.Too many different information systems meant a lack of standardization and hampered communication among suppliers, plants, and customers.
4The Brose Group Implements SAP – One Site at a Time (2) Brose decided to standardize operations on SAP R/3, an ERP application licensed by SAP that supports more than a thousand different business processes.The Brose/SAP Consulting team decided on a pilot approach.The team constructed the implementation to be used as a prototype for installations at additional plants.
5The Brose Group Implements SAP – One Site at a Time (3) The first time that Brose/SAP consulting team installed system was in a new plant in Curitiba, Brazil. Developing the first implementation was no small feat, because it involved information systems for sales and distribution, material management, production planning, quality management, and financial accounting and control.The second implementation, in Puebla, Mexico, required just 6 months for first operational capability.And the next implementation, in Meerane, Germany, was operational in just 19 weeks.
6The Brose Group Implements SAP – One Site at a Time (4) Modern manufacturing seeks to improve productivity by reducing waste, which means eliminating ：-- Overproduction that leads to excess inventories-- Unavailable needed and parts, which idle workers and facilities-- Wasted motion and processing due to poorly plannedmaterials handling and operations activitiesManufacturing that eliminates these wastes is called lean manufacturing.
7The Brose Group Implements SAP – One Site at a Time (5) To accomplish lean manufacturing, SAP has invented a business process it calls just-in-sequence（JIS） manufacturing.JIS is an extension of just-in-time（JIT）, the pull manufacturing philosophy.Parts not only arrive just in time, but also arrive in just the correct sequence.To achieve JIS, Brose used SAP R/3 combined with a supplementary SAP module called SAP for Automotive with JIS.
8Question 1Reflect on the nature of JIS planning. In general terms, what kinds of data must Brose have in order to provide JIS to its customers? What does Brose need to know? It certainly needs a bill of materials for the items it produces. What other categories of information will Brose need?
9What does Brose need to know? (1) What kinds of data that will be used in the production.-- the name of Parts-- the quantity of Parts-- where the parts will be used-- when the parts will be needed-- what categories the parts belong-- products patternQuantity 數量
10What does Brose need to know? (2) What other categories of information will Brose need-- product scheduling-- the bill of materials specifying thecomponents needed for the product beingmade-- the time that product manufacture cost
12Question 2According to the description on page 396, the SAP system included applications for sales and distribution, materials management, production planning, quality management, and financial accounting and control. Describe, in general terms, features and functions of these applications that are necessary to provide JIS.根據 p.396的敘述，SAP 系統包含了針對「銷售和配銷、材料管理、生產規劃、品質管理、財務會計和控制」的應用程序。解釋在通常的情況下，這些應用程序的特性和功能that 是必要的以提供JIS。
13JIS is mainly implemented with automobile manufacturing. The Description of JISJust in Sequence (JIS) is an inventory strategy that matches Just In Time and complete fit in sequence with variation of assembly line production.When implemented successfully, JIS improves a company's return on assets (ROA), without loss in quality or overall efficiency.JIS is mainly implemented with automobile manufacturing.JIS的說明JIS是一個存貨策略，需要搭配 JIT 並且在符合帶有變異的裝配線生產序列的狀態下完成。當 JIS 成功地實作，JIS 增進了一家公司的資產報酬率 (ROA) ，也沒有失去品質 , 整體效率 。JIS 主要實作於汽車製造。
14The Efficiency of Sequencing The sequencing allows companies to eliminate supply buffers as soon as the quantity in component part buffers necessary is reduced to a minimum.If not sequencing according to scheduled variety of production, all required components must be stocked in buffers.序列的效益排序使得公司消除供應緩衝區的數量 ，當必要組成零件被減至最小值如果沒有按照生產順序來排序 ，則所有需要的組成零件都必須存放在緩衝區
15Implementing JIS concepts A production sequence or final assembly sequence must be shared upwards to suppliers and sub-contractors.Feedback to customers must be organized according to the scheduled output to earn all positive financial effects.For this reason, the actual production sequence must be "broadcast" out to all relevant parties once it is firm.實施 JIS 概念生產序列或是最終裝配序列 必須向上分享給供應商和分包商利用預先計劃的產出來辨識出回饋資訊給顧客，以賺得正面的財務效益基於這個理由，真實的生產序列必須廣播給所有相關的各方
16Limitations of JISIn many manufacturing operations, the actual production sequence cannot be planned ahead of time with enough certainty to enable sequencing.The main reason is that some manufacturing processes require re-work frequently so that a scheduled sequence becomes irrelevant.JIS 的限制實際生產序列沒有辦法有足夠把握地在時間之前正確地排序。主要的原因是因為有些製造程序需要頻繁地重工，因此一個預先計畫好的序列變的無關緊要。

30Question 3The Brose factory in Brazil produces more than doors for General Motors. The factory must coordinate the door orders with orders for other products and orders from other manufacturers. What kinds of IS are necessary to provide such coordinated manufacturing planning?
31OutlineIS that provide coordinated manufacturing planning 1. Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) ♦ What is MES ♦ Function of MES 2. Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) ♦ What is APS ♦ Function of MESCompare MES & APS ♦ Similarity ♦ Difference
32What Is MESMES is an modular information system that can manage operations from receiving the order, internal production began to product completion, planning and coordinating all production activities.It can make products on-time delivery, improve inventory turns by making manufacturing schedule.When production activities in an emergency, you can also provide on-site emergency treatment information.MES(Manufacturing Execution System，製造執行管理系統/生產執行系統。
33Function of MESFunction for coordinated manufacturing planning : 1. Manufacturing/Operations SchedulingCollecting and analyzing data from orders, and concluding useful information like priority or characteristic of orders. Then making manufacturing scheduling by those information.2. Dispatching production ordersAssigning operations that are necessary. Allow modifying schedule that has made if there had any exception event occurring.
34What Is APSAPS has powerful manufacturing planning and scheduling functions. Because it uses many progressive management planning techniques, including Theory of Constraints (Theory of Constraints, TOC), Operations Research (Operations Research, OR), genetic algorithms play (Genetic Algorithms, GA), etc.It’s used to support and coordinate the manufacturing planning-related decisions. Limited resources, the pursuit of the balance between supply and demand planning; the same time, the use of information storage and analysis capabilities in the shortest possible time, to achieve the most effective planning.先進規劃與排程系統 (Advanced Planning and Scheduling,APS)
35Function of APS(1)Function for coordinated manufacturing planning : 1.Synchronized planningAccording to business objectives, while considering the company's overall supply and demand conditions, it makes supply planning and demand planning Optimization planningAt the same time taking into consideration corporate limits, to work out a feasible and optimized manufacturing planning.
36Function of APS(2) 3. Real-time planning Collecting a variety of real-time production data and real-time analysis and planning immediately, so planners can deal with many unexpected situations. It can deal with exception event such as delays in the supply of materials or emergency plug single immediately and quickly Provide decision support capabilities APS predicted by simulation, and analysis tools available will help planners to use in the analysis, and then made the right decisions.
37Compare MES & APS(1) Similarity： MES Reducing manufacturing cycle. AdvantageMESReducing manufacturing cycle.Reducing order processing error.Reducing time of managing schedule.Dealing with exception event .Satisfying customer’s order rapidly and Flexibility.APS
38Compare MES & APS(2) Difference： MES APS Advantage Disadvantage MES is a huge system, which includes all operations in the production process, not just the scheduling plan. Selecting it at the same time, also get other functions such as collect information, coordination, implementation and supervision of production functions.However, if you just want to find a system for schedule planning, many of its features may be with your original system to produce conflict.APSAfter comparing with MES, APS as a system for schedule planning, which can be both its advantages, but also can be a disadvantage, depending on the needs of the administrator why.
40Question 4Brazilians speak Portuguese, workers in the United States speak English and Spanish, and personnel at the Brose headquarters speak German. Summarize challenges to Brose and SAP Consulting when implementing a system for users who speak four different languages and live in (at least) four different cultures.
42Language Differences(1) 1.Communication and understanding problem :Cause : users may not understand how to operate systemSolution : need to provide multi-languages functions, but some translation may not be very accurate.(e.g. computer=laptop=desk-top computer=notebook but laptop focus on putting it on the lap, desk-top computer usually put on the desk, notebook is focus on it's portable ,even it means all the same thing, but it focus on different things. Cause Americans call it based on it's use.)
43Language Differences(2) 2.Accent problem :Cause : users may make misunderstanding when contacting company talking about the system problemsSolution: use automatic online translators (Portuguese、 English、German、Spanish) or use s instead of phone.(link – someone is asking for help and saying “we are sinking”, but the one get this message heard wrongly as the word “thinking”, so he asked what are you thinking about?)3.口音不同(Accent) >accent is very heavy in German , and lighter in USA and speaking is very fast in brazilian
44Language Differences(3) 3. Dialect problem :Cause : users may make misunderstanding or not understand when contacting company talking about the system problemsSolution : use each country's official language, rather than 1 standard language(e.g. Brazil use Portuguese ; Germany use German ; USA use English )and use automatic online translators (Portuguese、English、 German、Spanish)
45Cultural Differences(1) Thoughts problem :Jokes 1: If there’s a fly in the beer, Chinese may drink it half then ask for compensate , then do it again at next store, put fly in the beer ; American will find lawyer immediately ; French won’t pay ; England people may say something humorous ; but German may pick fly out ,and test seriously whether there are germs in the beer. (link)想法不一樣(Thoughts) 還有一則笑話是說，如果啤酒裏有一個蒼蠅，中國人會直接喝半杯 在要求賠償 ,在到下一家做一次 把蒼蠅放到啤酒裡;美國人會馬上找律師，法國人會拒不付錢，英國人會幽默幾句，而德國人則會用鑷子夾出蒼蠅，並慎重其事地化驗啤酒裏是否已經有了細菌。(http://www.epochtimes.com/b5/6/11/28/n htm)
46Cultural Differences(2) Joke 2 :If losing one dollar in the street , Chinese spit and say the one who pick it up then buy some medicine; American may call police, report case and left phone number, then leaving with chewing gum; England people never panic, just walk away gentlemanly; Japanese must hate himself without carefulness, and Examines himself repeatedly at home; German may draw coordinate within losing 100 meter square , and using magnifier to search it .(link)一則是說，若是在大街上遺失一元錢，中國人而是狠狠地在地上吐口吐沫，然後大罵一句："哼，誰拾到誰就去買藥吃！"於是心理上就平衡了。這種阿Ｑ主義曾被魯迅先生深刻地批判過，我們周圍就有這樣的人，不算醜化。,,,,英國人決不驚慌，至多聳一下肩就依然很紳士地往前走去，好象什麽事也沒發生一樣。美國人則很可能喚來警察，報案 之後留下電話，然後嚼著口香糖揚長而去。日本人一定很痛恨自己的粗心大意，回到家中反復檢討，決不讓自己再遺失第二次。惟獨德國人與衆不同，會立即在遺失 地點的１００平方米之內，劃上座標和方格，一格一格地用放大鏡去尋找。
47Cultural Differences(3) 1.Thoughts problem :Cause : the ways users operate system may differentSolution : Ask them why they do things this way, maybe the system need to correct to be more simple to use ,train users how to use, and communicate more(e.g. of communicate more : Make presentation, , write reports…etc.)
48Cultural Differences(4) 2. Habits problem :Cause : the ways users operate system may different(e.g. Germans are more careful than others)Solution : make guidelines for operating system and train users how to manipulatesystem
49Cultural Differences(5) 3. Management form problem :Cause : Brose headquarters may cause management system failureSolution : There are 3 management types :1.Arbitrary 2.democracy 3.mixedChoose what it suits for users, and train users how to manage and maintain system .專斷型、混合型、民主型三種
50Cultural Differences(6) 4 . Emphasize on products problem :Cause : the needs of function when users operate system may different.Solution : After hearing all users’ opinions, making the best method to fit different needs.(e.g. US focus on efficiency , but Germany focus on quality, then find a way to manage system and produce very few defection to make it safely and high production.)4Emphasize on productsex: US—efficiency <Lexus、Toyota、GM、Ford>(銷量大) ; Germany—quality<BMW、Porsche、Benz、Audi>(技术含量高，安全性高)

72Question 66.1 Brose seeks to provide JIS service to its customers. Does this goal necessitate that Brose suppliers also provide JIS service to Brose?6.2 What can Brose do if its suppliers do not provide such service?6.3 Is there any reason why Brose would not want them to provide such service?
736.1 Brose seeks to provide JIS service to its customers. Does this goal necessitate thatBrose suppliers also provide JIS service toBrose?Yes, this goal necessitates that Brose suppliers also provide JIS service to Brose.1. Pick-to-sequence:Reduce buffers in production area, improving wip and cycle time.2. Ship-to-sequence then Receive-to-sequence:Reduce the amount of component and semi-finished goods inventory overall in the plant, freeing up cash, and reducing carrying costs.3. Make-Assemble-Build-to-sequence:Reduce the amount of finished goods or semi-finished goods in inventory, freeing up additional cash, and reducing carrying costs.
746.2 What can Brose do if its suppliers do not provide JIS service?Brose can:1. Zero inventory makes Brose dosen’t need to spend any cost on building storehouse.2. Efficient productions by JIS service.3. Show the SAP Appraisal table to Brose suppliers to prove Brose have had a lower cost by JIS service.
756.3 Is there any reason why Brose would not want Brose suppliers to provide JIS service? If the inflation of raw materials is happened, the zero inventory will make Brose get the raw materials more expensive, that is, if the suppliers have the stocks, Brose will get much cheaper raw materials to save its costs.
76How Brose suppliers provide JIS to Brose 1. A production sequence or final assembly sequence must be shared upwards to suppliers and sub-contractors.2. Production sequence must be "broadcast" out to all relevant parties once it is firm. This "broadcast" can be done over the phone, paper, , or other automated IT system.3. Once the sequence is broadcast, each party must immediately take action to deliver sequenced parts in time.4. Quality inspection and poka-yoke must be implemented in the sequencing step to guarantee that the sequenced components match the assembly sequence perfectly.
77Poka-yoke1. A poka-yoke is any mechanism in a lean manufacturing process that helps an equipment operator avoid (yokeru) mistakes (poka).2. Its purpose is to eliminate product defects by preventing, correcting, or drawing attention to human errors as they occur.
79Question 7Describe Three Specific Ways That Brose’s Investment In SAP Will Help It Survive The Automotive Crisis.
80CrisisBrose found that too many IS will cause lack of standardization and hampered communication.When using the new ERP application, Brose’s employers do not really know how it works.Brose increased productivity, but cause some problem.OverproductionUnavailable needed parts.Wasted process
81Specific Ways Use SAP R/3- an ERP application licensed by SAP SAP lead the projectLean ManufacturingJust in Sequence
82SAP R/3Definition:SAP R/3 is the former name of the main enterprise resource planning software produced by SAP AG.An enterprise-wide information system designed to coordinate all the resources, information, and activities needed to complete business process.SAP公司的R / 3 是以前的名稱，主要 企業資源規劃 軟件製作的 SAP公司 。 這是一個企業級信息系統，旨在協調所有的資源，信息和活動所需的完整的業務流程
83SAP R/3 SAP R/3 solve crisis 1. Brose use SAP R/3 to standardize operations.
84SAP lead the projectSAP team provided process consulting and implementation support and it trained users.SAP’s consultant and Brose’s experts worked openly , flexibly and constructively.
85Lean manufacturing Definition Lean Manufacturing , referred to as lean , eliminate waste non-use of continuous rather than batch processesSolve crisis 3It can eliminate excess inventoriesIt can eliminate idle workers and facilitiesIt can eliminate wasted process精益生產(Lean Manufacturing)，簡稱“精益”，利用杜絕浪費和無間斷的作業流程──而非分批和排隊等候──的一種生產方式。
86JISDefinition :JIS extends JIT so that parts not only arrive just in time , but also arrive in just the correct sequenceTo achieve JIS , Brose used SAP R/3 combined with a supplementary SAP module called SAP for Automotive with JISJIS solve crisis 3.為了達成精實生產，SAP發明了一種JIS的生產流。JIS 是JIT的延伸。JIS讓零件不僅剛好抵達，而且是以剛好正確的順序抵達。
90Introduction (1)Accelerated SAP (ASAP) is SAP’s standard implementation methodology.It contains the Roadmap, a step-by-step guide that incorporates experience from many years of implementing R/3.
91Introduction (2)The ASAP methodology adheres to a specific road map that addresses the following five general phases:
92Phase 1: Project Preparation During this phase the team goes through initial planning and preparation for SAP project.1Goal SettingDefine project goals and objectives2Implementation strategy1.Clarify the scope of implementation2.Establish the project organization and relevant committees and assign resources3Implementation SequenceDefine sequence in project has to be executed4TeamCore team + project team + consultant team5Sign OffAt the end of phase every above steps will be documented and will be signed off with the client
93Phase 2: Business Blueprint The purpose of this phase is to achieve a common understanding of how the company intends to run SAP to support their business.The result is the Business Blueprint, a detailed documentation of the results gathered during requirements workshops.
94Phase 3: RealizationThe purpose of this phase is to implement all the business process requirements based on the Business Blueprint.The system configuration methodology is provided in 2 work packages:1.Baseline (major scope)2.Final configuration (remaining scope).In this phase also we have create documentation for the configuration implemented and it has to be taken sign off from client.
95Phase 4: Final Preparation The purpose of this is to complete the final preparation,which includes to the following.1Unit TestingTesting within each module.2Integration TestingIntegrate testing of module ie., combine testing of all the modules which is implemented.3User training and TestingEnd users of each module will be provided training by corresponding module consultant. End user training document and user manuals has to be prepared.
