Agha Steel Deploys Fiori enabled SAP!

Karachi (Muhammad Yasir) Agha Steel Industries is all set to implement “Pakistan’s 1st End-to-End Fiori-Enabled SAP on Cloud” in collaboration with SAP, Ernest & Young, TallyMarks and IBL Unisys. This end-to- end driven technology elevates the quality precision to the highest level by producing large production volumes without any human error. The project is aimed to upgrade the technological capabilities as well as operational harness of Agha Steel Industries. The kick-off ceremony of the event held today.

This up-gradation would transfer the supply chain of Agha Steel Industries (ASI) on the paradigms of lean manufacturing by elevating its operational and strategic agility, adaptability and alignment. SAP ERP has proven track record of reducing inventory holding cost and presently 10% to 15% reduction in cost is projected from this technological up gradation. It is also expected that system will reduce the data storage space requiring less amount of space to store high data volumes. Furthermore, compact storage would result into better throughput by reducing the manufacturing cycle time.

Speaking at the occasion CEO of Agha Steel Industries, Mr. Hussain Agha emphasized that global steel industry was moving at disruptive speed and to keep pace with it, Pakistani steel producers had to be highly competitive. This latest, state of the art, solution makes it possible for an organization to be ambidextrous by allowing organization to maintain a fit between its cost effectiveness, product quality and innovativeness.

He further clarified that phrase “zero man intervention” coined for this new system did not mean elimination of human resource from the production processes. Instead, this represents the capability of the new system to help the human resource quarters in dramatically improving their efficiency and effectiveness. Doing so, the new system not only delivers better customer experience, but also bridges the demand and supply gap. In addition, the adoption of SAP Fiori tool will simplify the user interface; help to display data in a clearer and more intuitive way and make data entry easier.

SAP-Pakistan Country Head Mr. Saqib told that the system would transfer the supply chain of Agha steel on the paradigms of lean manufacturing by elevating its operational and strategic agility, adaptability and alignment. From the strategic management perspective, system will provide the real time information to the stakeholders for precise decision making.
