a serial number had not been recorded as “passed that stage,” the part could not be booked to the next stage. Te stages included pouring, heat treat, NDT inspections, casting finishing, machining reception and finish machined. Te company has discovered


that its ERP program users often seek help on things they should know how to solve on their own. One challenge has been for the project leader to have time to continue the implementation of the system instead of troubleshooting and servicing internal customers. Proper training and user manuals personalized to POK have helped minimize this. Keeping the system up to date is a team effort and must be supervised. It is easy to leave inputting as an activity for the end of the


day, causing the data to be skewed. POK has launched a pilot trial of shop floor data collection where the operators them- selves input data in real time. POK didn’t begin with shop floor data collection from the beginning because it wanted to understand what information was worth having. ERP process owners played a role in identifying such data. 6. Shop Floor Data Collection Pilot Run: POK chose a


manufacturing cell that processes parts quickly for the pilot run of floor data collection. Te run was successful but came across several obstacles. Four computer screens were located in the manufacturing


cell. Quality plans were created for the products being pro- cessed and results were being input by the operators. If a part did not pass the inspection, it would instantly be booked into a “rework route,” helping POK obtain a rework and scrap percentage instantly. All the certificates to be sent to the customer, including NDT reports, dimensional verification reports, material test reports, hardness reports and shipping documents, were generated immediately, printed and placed with the parts. POK didn’t actually see results of the implementation until it could finally generate reports. Te ERP software works alongside SAP-owned report designing software. With both software programs, POK can generate any report and visualize any type of informa- tion. Knowing how to use the report-designing software has been an important factor in the success of the ERP program implementation. Giving people data they can use and analyze has been key for the acceptance of inputting data into the software in the first place. POK’s first major success was the automation of all cer-


tificates of conformance and material test results. Te spec- trometer and carbon and sulfur analyzer were linked to the ERP database, and the report was created in the reporting software. Tis reduced the amount of man-hours needed to put the information together by 70%, but most importantly, it did away with human error. Today, POK generates many reports through its ERP.


Supervisors receive daily, weekly or monthly automatically- generated email reports of relevant information about their


该公司已经发现其ERP 程序的使用人员经常请求 帮助,而这些问题本应该 他们自己解决。对项目负 责人的难题是,应该花时 间继续推进系统的运行, 而不是排除故障和维护内 部客户。针对POK公司的


个性化的培训和使用手册,最大限度地帮助减少这 一问题。保持系统更新需要团队努力,并且必须被 监督。


把本该实时输入的数据留在工作结束时输入的情况 容易发生,从而导致数据偏移。POK公司推出车间数 据采集的试点试验,操作者自己实时输入数据。 POK 公司没有从车间初始数据采集开始,因为它想了解什 么信息是值得拥有的。ERP程序负责人确定这些数据 发挥了作用。 6. 车间数据采集试运行:POK公司选择了快速制造 单元作为基础数据收集的运行试点。在克服了一些困 难后,该运行是成功的。


制造单元有4个电脑屏幕。产品按创建的质量规范 加工,结果被操作者输入系统。如果零件未通过验 收,它会立即被计入“返工路线”,能够在瞬间帮助 POK公司获得返工和报废百分比。所有需要发送给客 户的证明文件,包括无损检测报告,尺寸检测报告, 材料测试报告,硬度报告和货运单据,都被及时打印 并随零件放置。


直到最终可以生成报告,POK公司实际上并没有看 到实施的结果。


ERP软件和SAP-owned报告设计软件共同工作。 有这两个软件,POK公司可以生成任何报告和可视化 的信息。了解如何使用报告设计软件,已经成为ERP 项目实施成功的重要因素。给客户可以使用和分析的 数据,是输入数据的关键,应摆在软件验收的首位。 POK公司项目第一个重大成功是所有自动生成的证 明文件与材料试验结果保持一致。光谱仪和碳硫分析 仪被连接到ERP数据库,报告文件由报告软件创建。 结果是减少了汇总信息所需工时的70%,最重要的 是,它消除了人为错误。


目前,POK公司使用ERP系统生成很多报告。管理 者每天、每周或每月会收到与他们管理范围有关的、 自动生成的电子邮件报告。报告内容包括:
