OPPORTUNITES AND CHALLENGES

The company stood out from the outset for its ongoing scientific and technological cutting-edge research compared to its competitors. As a result of this focus on developing technical solutions and to meeting customers' needs, the company has numerous technical patents, and established itself on the world market. This led to the SMS Group, the world's largest manufacturer of equipment for the steel industry, asking it to be its partner during the 90s. It changed its name from S.I.M.A.C. to "SMS Meer S.p.A." in 2005 to indicate the values that are associated with SMS, such as innovation, reliability and after-sales service warranty.

AIMS

Lead time is an important factor in the market in which SMS MEER S.p.A. operates. By making investments focused on reducing time while continuing to improve the quality of every single department in a company, will enable the company to continue to be competitive and increase its customer base.

WHY SAP AND FORE

Being able to innovate so that SAP applications can be used, combined with the structured and standardized project methods adopted by FORE, has allowed us to pinpoint ambitious and challenging goals. The upgrade project plan, developed over a few weeks, positioned the company as an international centre of excellence for support in system engineering and technological issues.

KEY POINTS AND IMPLEMENTATION

FORE guided us in highlighting the important aspects of the project, from the upgrading to the consolidation of our wealth of information. In this way we achieved significant results in terms of data management and multi-level process integration.
This new reference base allows us to introduce functional innovation where it is deemed more useful.

BENEFITS

Many departments today can rely on well functioning verification and checking tools. The use of the Netweaver platform will allow us to extend this efficiency to other departments in our organization, ready to adopt international guidelines while at the same time adapting them to our own business model.
