    • Asset visibility and optimization: enabling management by exception. This demonstration shows how asset visibility and optimization allows you to access detailed information to pinpoint problems, follow up on identified issues, analyze and implement strategies for improvement, and evaluate the results. Enabling you to gain a single version of the truth, take action to optimize performance, and solve problems to enhance customer satisfaction. Access detailed information to pinpoint problems. Hector Aguillara is a plant manager. He uses SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence to compare the performance of his company's plants. He then looks at details on his own plant. He checks environment, health, and safety data and sees no problems. But when he checks production KPIs, he sees a red arrow that indicates a downward trend in overall equipment effectiveness. With just a few clicks, he can drill down to identify the problem production line. He can see that low mill-center availability is causing the poor performance. The mill center has a high percentage of unplanned downtime. Hector will ask the line manager to investigate the problem. Follow up on identified issues. John Bradley is a line manager. Hector has asked him to investigate the mill-center-availability problem. John uses SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence to access operations and maintenance data. He sees irregular patterns that indicate a problem with a drive motor. He can see that the software has already assigned the motor a "maintenance required" status. He needs to verify that the issue is also noted in the maintenance system. He opens the SAP Visual Information for Plants application by NRX and sees a maintenance notice for the drive motor. John will ask the reliability engineer to look into the problem further. Implement strategies for improvement. Jane Fergusson is a reliability engineer. John has asked her to look into the reliability of the drive motor. Jane checks her reliability-centered-maintenance solution, which is built on the SAP NetWeaver technology platform. She reviews the risk matrix, which takes into account safety, environment, and production. She sees that the recommended course of action is to overhaul the drive motor more frequently. She checks the benefits summary to judge the financial impact of the recommendation. Increasing the overhaul frequency is beneficial, because failure is costly and would adversely affect customer fulfillment. Jane will implement this strategy by adjusting the corresponding maintenance plan in SAP ERP. Evaluate the results. Hector Aguillera, the plant manager, reviews plant performance now that the new maintenance strategy is in place. He checks his plant and sees that the production line now has a green arrow that indicates an upward trend. The new maintenance strategy is a success. Asset visibility and optimization allows you to gain a single version of the truth, take action to optimize performance, and solve problems to enhance customer satisfaction.
