At Hunter Douglas, there was a disconnect between ERP and shop floor, resulting in anomalies in business processes and very limited control parameters that caused inconsistency in its overall enterprise-wide manufacturing functionalities. High-complexity product models and disparate shop floor systems with a local instance at each site necessitated Hunter Douglas to consider a global shop floor system integrated with the SAP S/4HANA enterprise solution. This allowed connectivity to a single source of data and supported by a common platform for label printing and equipment integration.
