SAP/ERP Integration.



SAMA SAP or ERP interface can post your production & consumption data to SAP or ERP systems. Further, instructions from Planning or scheduling or SAP / ERP can be transferred to control systems. Multiple connectivity options are available such as web posting or client to ERP/SAP systems or OPC and ODBC.

Data from control system can be production or consumption data; both from continuous process and batch processes. Examples of continuous process data are production & consumption quantities such as instantaneous values, averages, maximum & minimum values, sum and totaliser values, statistical data such as standard deviation & variance as well as incremental values on all these. Analysis results or lab can be integrated.

Examples of batch data include Mass flow meters (MFM) or tank gaging in custody transfer applications, blending & pharma applications. A typical flow chart is presented here: Ordering

Typical setup :

1. SAP / ERP request to perform batch processing using existing meters and batch controllers will be received by though our Supra SAP interface.

2. The communication from interface to the batch controller/ meter can be via OPC DA / Modbus / ODBC.

3. Supra software will collect data from batch controllers / meters through OPC DA / Modbus / ODBC.

4. In the configuration, required tags can be selected or mapped & saved. The application will start the batch at the occurrence of Start Tag (based on condition) & stops the batch at the occurrence of End Tag (based on condition).

5. The captured batch can be posted to SAP in two methods: Automatic & Manual.

If automatic is selected, captured batch will be sent automatically to SAP at the occurrence of End Tag. If manual is selected, user can verify or modify the data & then post it to SAP manually.

6. A GUI screen is provided for connectivity to SAP configuration - user details & destination details of SAP machine is configured here. RFC details for connectivity to SAP will be saved in Supra Database.

7. Each transaction is saved in the Supra Database for future reference - to indicate the transaction status. If any transaction is failed, user can verify or modify the data, save it & then post it again to SAP from the transaction screen.
