Implementing B2MML with SAP
The Procter & Gamble MES organization is implementing B2MML with SAP. When starting, we found several obstacles including; Lack of examples of B2MML; No desire from the SAP company to pursue a B2MML interface; Our lack of XML skills; Missing automatic interfaces in SAP. Several factors in our favor included: Support for B2MML at management level in our Information Exchange, Material Movement/Warehouse, SAP Production Execution, and MES organizations; we could use an existing SAP Business Connector infrastructure; our key MES vendor was actively developing a B2MML interface; The WBF XML working group was willing to exchange information.
