Successful SAP ERP go-live at Sumitomo SBHPP

The Sumitomo Bakelite High Performance Plastics (SBHPP) division plant in Ghent is the first of three Sumitomo production sites in Europe to go live with SAP ERP. The business scope includes finance, sales & distribution, purchasing, logistics execution, warehouse management and transportation.

On top of this, a significant number of interfaces are supported with SAP Process Orchestration, including connections with quality control systems for raw materials and finished products, shop floor applications for production confirmation, a legacy plant maintenance application and the AS/400 production planning system.

The go-live went smoothly, with all business processes up and running as of the first day.
