An Enterprise-wide Solution for Discrete Manufacturing businesses on SAP S/4HANA

Discrete Manufacturing: An Overview

In discrete manufacturing, distinct items are produced in low volumes with high complexity or high volumes with low complexity. The production processes are not continuous and each process can be started or stopped at various production sites and at various production rates.

This strategy is used in various industries such as Automotive, High-tech, Industrial Machinery & Components, Aerospace & Defense etc. Automotive Manufacturers use this strategy to manufacture Cars, Trucks, Automotive Components etc. It is also used in Consumer Electronics to manufacture Laptops, Servers, Personal Computers, TVs, Mobiles, Washing Machines, Refrigerators etc.

Major challenges related to manufacturing, installations and services in this industry are:

Large number of Product Variants

Hybrid production processes - MTO, MTS, ETO, ATO
