Tradition of Innovation for a Future of Success
Schaidt Innovations was purely a production site with no ERP IT infrastructure when started. So the company needed an ERP system and there was no time for a long, drawn-out implementation. And Schaidt did not have the resources or funding to invest in ERP IT development, customization, and support.
SAPSAP is the leading provider of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software used to integrate back-office functions such as distribution, accounting, human resources, and manufacturing. The backbone of SAP's products has been its on-premise offerings, spearheaded by its Business Suite, which includes ERP and customer relationship management (CRM) software, among others.Year founded: 1972Revenue: $17.6 billion (2014)NYSE: SAP
Schaidt Innovations manufactures and markets original designed products for the automotive, non-automotive telecommunications and IT, medical devices, and the electronic packaging and systems integration industries.

- USE CASES
Process Control & Optimization (PCO)Process Control and Optimization (PCO) is the discipline of adjusting a process to maintain or optimize a specified set of parameters without violating process constraints.The PCO market is being driven by rising demand for energy efficient production processes, safety and security concerns, and the development of IoT systems that can reliably predict process deviations.Fundamentally, there are three parameters that can be adjusted to affect optimal performance:- Equipment optimizationThe first step is to verify that the existing equipment is being used to its fullest advantage by examining operating data to identify equipment bottlenecks.- Operating proceduresOperating procedures may vary widely from person-to-person or from shift-to-shift. Automation of the plant can help significantly. But automation will be of no help if the operators take control and run the plant in manual.- Control optimizationIn a typical processing plant, such as a chemical plant or oil refinery, there are hundreds or even thousands of control loops. Each control loop is responsible for controlling one part of the process, such as maintaining a temperature, level, or flow. If the control loop is not properly designed and tuned, the process runs below its optimum. The process will be more expensive to operate, and equipment will wear out prematurely. For each control loop to run optimally, identification of sensor, valve, and tuning problems is important. It has been well documented that over 35% of control loops typically have problems. The process of continuously monitoring and optimizing the entire plant is sometimes called performance supervision.
