When you think about Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), feeding cows probably isn’t the first thing to come to mind. However, feed mixers from SILOKING help farmers achieve sustainable high yields with optimal quality through process optimization in dairy cattle feeding – all with the help of CIDEON’s deployment of efficient engineering on SAP PLM during their conversion to SAP ERP. This consolidation of the software landscape improves the future viability of the fast-growing, innovative, engineering company.

The challenge for CIDEON was to eliminate the duplication of multiple data assets, decrease administrative overhead, reduce the possibility of errors, and increase data visibility across the entire enterprise. To accomplish this, older heterogeneous software solutions for ERP and PLM were replaced by SAP, with full integration in the system, from sales to engineering to production.

CIDEON also deployed the SAP Engineering Control Center (ECTR) interface to Solid Edge, the CIDEON Conversion Engine for automated conversion of engineering data to viewable formats for downstream users, and CIDEON Import PDM for the migration of data from the PDM/PLM inventory system to SAP. CIDEON provided process consulting, installation, configuration, support for data migration and testing, customization, training, and support.

The result for SILOKING is an immediate reduction in multiple data maintenance efforts which improved data consistency, and increasing data quality and process security to support business growth and internationalization.
