Diehl Aircabin: two become one – keeping system harmonization always under control
During the past two years, Diehl Aerosystems, a division of the Diehl Group, drew up and enacted a new IT strategy for all of its business units. The goal was to use synergies across the division more effectively. An important line of action in this regard was harmonizing the processes of the division’s business units.
In 2012, Diehl Service Modules GmbH (formerly Mühlenberg) was integrated into the division. Diehl Aircabin faced the challenge of consolidating its business processes with the new business unit, and launched the first major harmonization project in the division together with the new affiliated company.
Up until its integration into the division, Diehl Service Modules worked with a Kifos solution from Sage bäurer GmbH as its ERP system. Within the scope of this harm-onization project, all of the associated logistics processes were to be discontinued and replaced with Diehl Aircabin’s processes. To do so, the processes were to be transferred to the existing SAP® ERP system.
