Cetec ERP

For our business, Cetec ERP works very well because of all the capabilities it has with traceability, restrictions, and access, and having the data live for any user to see at the same time. The way the system is set up for order processing is more strict which is better for us since it helps with accuracy and traceability. For the production side, since our company is not a manufacturing site, it can be a little overwhelming since there are a lot of fields/data that we do not use, simply because it does not apply to us. Other than that module being a little too advanced for our company, all of the features included "out of the box" are well worth the affordable price that they have for this ERP system.

SAP Manufacturing Execution

SAP Manufacturing Execution is suitable for desecrate manufacturing. For the complex routing of the product, this software ensures users do not by mistake start executing the wrong steps. This is the best tool to track and work on nonconformance and rework scenarios. This is most suitable when the landscape has SAP ERP in place.

Pros

Cetec ERP

  • Training and Implementation.
  • Support is great.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Manufacturing Execution

  • Visual routing ensures the production line layout is as appropriate as shown on the application.
  • Production house needs a lot of data to do an in-process inspection of the product. ERP might not need that. SAP ME provides that place to do every data collection.
  • Nonconformance functionality ensures when needed the product goes to the appropriate station to get repaired. Also, data collection can raise NC and can move the product to a particular station to get an issue corrected.
  • All the information is well integrated with SAP ERP and makes SAP ME more valuable for the organization.
  • SAP MII also comes along with SAP ME helps to get the application well integrated with the shop floor equipment.

Cons

Cetec ERP

  • Role Descriptions: There are default roles that Cetec ERP has already created for you. However, these roles are not detailed as to what access each role has and it makes it difficult to assign these default roles.
  • Reporting: While Cetec ERP's default reports are detailed, there is only minimal customization of reports allowed out of the box. They do have an add-on available for purchase where you can freely customize reports, but our company isn't at that point to purchase this add-on as we only need a small bit of customization beyond what comes out of the box.

SAP Manufacturing Execution

  • ODS or the BI part of the ME needed more improvement.
  • The archiving job needs to be more robust.
  • Database indexes need to me more analyzed and setup as per the organization requirement.
  • SAP MII UI integration plugin to be developed for increased usability of this application.

Alternatives Considered

Cetec ERP

We had been a customer of Cetec on their Legacy system for 20+ years and were always satisfied with their product and support.

SAP Manufacturing Execution

There was no product evaluated before using SAP ME. This replaced the custom homegrown MES system. The custom MES system had a lot of issues with the integration with SAP ERP. While evaluating the situation, SAP MII was the initial tool used to create the integration of the custom MES. We later found the fully functional tool SAP ME off the shelf had several functionalities out of the box.

Return on Investment

Cetec ERP

  • Accuracy: Now that we can restrict access to approved users, our accuracy of inventory has improved.
  • Financial Cleanup: Importing financials that were not yet balanced from previous system caused a ripple and we now have to clean up in this new system.
Alan Galvan | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Manufacturing Execution

  • Production house is more efficient now.
  • Less paperwork improved means less unproductive work on the shop floor.
  • Regulatory audits are more efficient.
