Aerospace Systems Company, a division of Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) now uses the SAP S/4HANA Manufacturing solution.

SAP S/4HANA solutions are designed to accelerate processes by digitizing a huge amount of materials, which will improve work efficiency.

Dr. Akihito Sakai, associate officer, deputy general manager (Gifu plant, SCM & IOT), Manufacturing Division, Aerospace Systems Company, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, said “We recently completed the design work to deliver SAP S/4HANA Manufacturing for centralizing data management at every stage of the manufacturing process, which ultimately aims to drive greater efficiency and business outcomes.”

Building a clean ocean by 2030 is a priority for SAP

SAP has become a member of the World Economic Forum’s Global Plastic Action Partnership community. The main goal of the community is to create a clean ocean by 2030, by reducing the use of plastic and moving to alternatives to disposable plastics. Cooperation involves the introduction of new technologies and the optimization of waste management processes.

SAP, in turn, updated the Plastics Cloud, which will expand the companies’ liability policy and motivates them to use recycled materials, as well as monitor waste disposal. Plastics Cloud offers a partnership with a secondary materials marketplace based on Ariba Network. Thus, companies will be able to use recycled plastics and plastic alternatives in packaging.
