SAP A&D Innovation Days

March 4-6, 2024 | Savannah, GA

The aerospace and defense industry had mixed results in 2023 but there was far more good than bad. Commercial air travel increased while accidents and fatalities dropped to record lows. As we begin 2024, potential growth could be impacted by the ongoing challenges of supply chain complexity, long lead times, cybersecurity risks, talent shortages, and logistical issues. Long-term solutions must be put in place quickly.

Working with data management in the aerospace and defense industry has specific and complex challenges when it comes to regulations, data handling, logistics, security, and more. Those challenges become exponentially more complex when looking at major IT transformation projects, yet a modern IT infrastructure is key to staying competitive.

Join SNP and Northrop Grumman

At this year’s SAP A&D Innovation Days event in Savannah, GA, we’re sponsoring a session with our customer Northrop Grumman for a results-orientated discussion on NGC and SNP’s approaches to the data migration aspect of NGC's 1ERP program

Join us on Wednesday, 6 March at 3:10pm in the Oglethorpe Auditorium and hear about how Northrup Grumman Corporation effectively manages industry and company-specific SAP data migration requirements to transition from ECC to S/4HANA.

Your speakers:

Consulting Manager Technical US Service

The SAP S/4 program at Northrup Grumman Corporation (NGC) is one of the most significant and challenging 1ERP SAP projects the company has undertaken. The complexity stems from (1) the distinctive data and process requirements of the Aerospace & Defense sector, as well as (2) NGC's established business practices that are crucial for delivering differentiated products and operations. At the heart of any major transformation endeavor like this is data migration, and the aforementioned complexities impact what data gets migrated, how the data transforms, where it needs to go, etc. Join us for a results-oriented discussion regarding the requirements, solutions, and approaches chosen to address the data migration aspect of NGC's 1ERP program.

With the help of the SNP transformation approach, we were able to adapt to current process requirements (New General Ledger) and convert our finance system to S/4HANA in one step.This created the basis for developing a uniform, central financial system for Airbus Commercial Aircraft.

Airbus: SNP BLUEFIELD™ provides turbo thrust for data migration

Airbus Commercial Aircraft currently uses five large local ERP systems with different structures and characteristics. Its mediumterm goal is to centralize the local finance processes on one uniform platform (Central Finance). SNP was tasked with accelerating the data migration to rapidly obtain results that could be evaluated and, leveraging the flexibility of the tool SNP Transformation Backbone with SAP LT and the expertise of SNP specialists, to provide the best possible response to project requirements and changes. The task in the first stage of the project was to adapt the future central system to current general ledger requirements in one step using the BLUEFIELDTM approach and to perform the upgrade to S/4HANA.

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.
