For Siemens Energy, which helps maintain one-fifth of the world’s large-scale power plants, forecasting spare part needs is crucial. Mistakes are hard to fix: It can take months to build a set of blades for a modern turbine.
And yet, not too long ago Siemens’ sales representatives struggled to tell clients when critical parts were going to be available. The company’s SAP enterprise resource planning software couldn’t distill all the complex details of the manufacturing process into an accurate forecast for delivery of finished parts. Other areas of the company, from shipping to invoicing, were likewise frustrated by the lack of useful information available from the SAP system.
