SAP Distributed Manufacturing Improves 3D Printing for Digital Manufacturing


SAP recently introduced the new application, Distributed Manufacturing, at Hannover Messe 2017, April 24-28. Distributed Manufacturing is a result of "co-innovation with customers and service providers to make 3D printing a seamless part of digital manufacturing" with cost-effective local production, customization and rapid delivery.

SAP is integrated with distributed manufacturing through its Leonardo portfolio for the Internet of Things (IoT). Distributed manufacturing "provides a scalable process for manufacturers to collaborate with 3D printing companies, service and materials providers, and OEMs in open or private environments." SAP also combines with S/4HANA resulting in "the entire end-to-end, quote-to-contract process, enriching standard procurement objects with all required details on how to make the part through additive manufacturing" a reality.

Another part of SAP's distributed manufacturing implementation is expanded partnerships with HP Inc. and Jabil. HP has "plans to collaborate on eliminating friction in the process of evaluating and sourcing 3D print technology through integration with SAP's™ enterprise systems and network of partners." Jabil is also a player in SAP's distributing manufacturing plan: "Combining Jabil's™ manufacturing expertise with SAP Leonardo and manufacturing solutions, Jabil can create a digital twin to effectively manage the entire lifecycle of a part from design to production and recycling."
