The Challenge

In the automotive industry, niche products are becoming more and more important. The automobile industry has changed considerably over the past few years.

In a parallel to the growing individualization of our society, the range of models available from Audi has increased as well.

This facilitates Total Productivity Management (TPM), thus enhancing general productivity and creating important capacities that immediately process production data. FORCAM’s solution easily integrates into any ERP with special certification for SAP® allowing companies to link the shop floor - the process level with the top floor, the business planning level. FORCAM’s Advanced Shop Floor Management Technology fills the gap between machine control and SAP®ERP.
