The Global Data Sciences team successfully completed a multi--phase system integration project which married a wide range of enterprise technologies together in order to create a cohesive and manageable shop floor control environment. "This project was comprehensive and involved tight integration between multiple systems such as SAP's BOM (Bill of Material) management system, shop floor PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers) and a variety of home grown and legacy systems." Michael Mantzke - CEO Global Data Sciences, Inc. The challenge facing Global Data Sciences was to identify, unravel and document the thousands of processes and components crucial to the physical manufacture of nearly 35,000 finished goods items per day. An even greater challenge was to develop an integration plan which could be implemented as a seamless running change without disruption to the daily production process.
