Federal Mogul Migrates to Cloud MES Platform for Increased Agility

Federal Mogul Powertrain Otomotiv A.Ş. is a leading producer of automotive original equipment (OEM) and spare parts for prestigious brands, such as Mercedes-Benz, Bentley, Caterpillar, Nissan and many more. Their challenge was adapting to an uncertain market. The company selected SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud (DMC), a cloud MES platform, as part of their digital transformation to remain competitive. The cloud-first strategy involves a digital manufacturing execution system (MES) as part of an overall business migration to an advanced ERP in the cloud. Upon completion of the project, the three manufacturing sites located in Turkey would become more agile and adaptable to market changes.

With manual processes, there is a lack of real-time production insight that can lead to inefficiencies and increase risks from missing information or data entry errors. Operations and machines are also generating a high volume of data. Cloud MES solutions connect your shop floor equipment to your business systems for global visibility across all your plants. A cloud-based server can collect all your data in real-time, providing instant information to your management team, floor manager and maintenance team.
