Loads of stone from outside suppliers arrive by truck at Carmeuse’s production site. Recording these incoming deliveries in the ERP system (SAP) is done manually, based on different input systems and is therefore time-consuming and error-prone.
The data bot autmatically retrieves the data from the unloading terminal’s database. These data also include the access number (the “laisser-passer”) for the transport. Based on this access number, the bot looks up the corresponding SAP order number. Finally, this order number is used to record all delivery details in SAP.
The main benefit achieved by automating this process is that a lot of manual work is eliminated, with a positive impact on efficiency and costs. At the same time, error proneness also decreases and process continuity is always guaranteed.
