Aicomp’s add-on “VCPowerPack” for SAP® ERP successfully running at SAICA
Aicomp announced today that SAICA Group, one of the largest European packaging manufacturers, recently implemented its industry solution “Packaging,” in two Spanish plants.
Aicomp, an SAP partner, developed “Packaging” as part of its ”VCPowerPack” for SAP® ERP. The implementation will help SAICA optimize processes and keep prices competitive.
As a long-term Aicomp customer, SAICA systematically continues the introduction of SAP software to replace its old systems. With this industry solution complementary to SAP ERP, SAICA aims to improve the efficiency of its business processes and remain one of the largest packaging manufacturers in the European market.
VCPowerPack extends functionalities of the SAP ERP application to configure different products in real time. Further, it allows the configuration of those products depending on the customer’s requirements by using a new customizing functionality. The software supports several modules within the same customizing functionality based on a standardized framework solution. Thus VCPowerPack can be implemented for a broad range of purposes.
With this Aicomp solution, SAICA receives a wide variety of functions. This includes the detailed “VCPowerPack” product configuration for all packaging types needed within the SAICA production program and market offerings. This configuration encompasses production operation settings for technical restrictions checks, setup and runtime calculation, several master data tables for raw materials and production resource tools. In addition, the solution provides SAICA with tightly integrated standard components of SAP ERP. The detailed and precise costing, as well as price determination, are also part of the tool. Automated master-data creation in the background, interface integrations with production planning tools, web applications and CAD drawing systems support the overall process design.
Through the implementation of VCPowerPack-Packaging, the level of automation is increased and optimizes the production processes. In addition, the data redundancy avoidance leads to exact calculations and pricing. This allows SAICA to establish fair market prices and to consider the costs for each sales item.
