Solution aims to provide closed-loop traceability for tracking material and process data

Dernbach, Germany — December 13, 2005 — The traceability solution offered by manufacturing execution systems (MES) specialist iTAC Software has achieved "Powered by SAP NetWeaver" certification, the solution provider has announced.

Germany-based iTAC Software is a provider of software-based manufacturing execution MES systems, with core expertise in traceability embodied in the its "easy works" solution

SAP NetWeaver is an integration and application platform that forms the technical basis of third-party solutions from SAP partners. The integration of easy works as a traceability solution connects mySAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) to the shop floor, enabling coordination between the two levels and helping to ensure end-to-end business process modeling, according to iTAC Software.

Customers can benefit from this integration with template-based process models and system installations and have the opportunity to reduce the time and effort involved in integration and implementation. The SAP middleware technology facilitates the standardization and harmonization of the corporate IT infrastructure.

In addition, the vertical integration between the production and business levels enables customers to determine the exact level of material stocks because the inventory postings are automated, iTAC Software said.

Users can glean detailed information about various steps in the production process, helping to underpin quality and ensure that error-free products leave the factory, the solution provider said. "The preventive quality measures include early-warning mechanisms that enhance quality while reducing costs, enabling users to react faster to changes in the production or logistics process," iTAC Software said.

"Traceability is a key topic in the automotive industry, so we're pleased that SAP is extending its product range in this area by working with iTAC," said Dieter Meuser, founder and chief technology officer of iTAC Software. "The 'Powered by SAP NetWeaver' certification is a confirmation of our solution's high performance and marks us as a competent partner for traceability solutions in the SAP world."
