The cooperation between SAP and Pepperl+Fuchs will soon be consolidated as announced by the two companies at this year's ACHEMA trade fair in Frankfurt. The IoT cooperation in the process industry includes coordinated development of joint solutions, as well as sales and implementation. 

The cooperation centers on two areas:    

Condition Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance for Production Plants

Lowering maintenance costs by preventing and reducing downtime is the main focus of the companies’ collaboration. Pepperl+Fuchs and its subsidiary Neoception provide components for harmonized IoT communication between field devices and the SAP Leonardo innovation platform. Apps and analytical tools from field device manufacturers can be seamlessly integrated into the platform. With this, SAP optimizes the interplay between field device service requirements and manufacturers’ operation and maintenance processes. 

IoT Solutions for Product Logistics in Continuous Processes

The goal is increasing efficiency of container management to ensure a sound supply chain from manufacturer to end user. For its part, Pepperl+Fuchs supplies autonomous level sensors that connect wirelessly to the SAP cloud platform. 

“By working with Pepperl+Fuchs, we can further advance the integration of IT and OT,” says Hala Zeine, President of Digital Supply Chain and Manufacturing at SAP. “This enables us to tap into the added value that modern field devices can generate—also at the business level.”  

Dr. Gunther Kegel, CEO of Pepperl+Fuchs, adds: “We want to offer process plant operators solutions based on the NAMUR open architecture. To optimize plant performance, information is provided that is already available in field devices but, until now, has usually gone unused.”
