SAP BAiO - Valley Longwall

Improved efficiency and business performance visibility for mining equipment company

Oxygen, A DXC Technology Company completed an SAP Business All-in-One implementation for Valley Longwall International (VLI) that streamlined its operations and gave the specialised mining equipment company a platform for ongoing business improvement.

“The SAP Business All-in-One solution was a perfect fit for our manufacturing business. It supports all our key operations: from the shop floor to the back office, and from products sales to customer service.”
Gerard Velayuthen, GM – Supply Chain, Valley Longwall International Pty. Ltd.

Faced with a range of inherited inefficiencies due to a number of mergers and acquisitions, VLI recognised the need for an industrial scale ERP planning solution. It decided to implement SAP Business All-in-One in order to create a platform for optimal business efficiency and integrated processing across all its operations.

The executive team at VLI identified specific requirements for improvements to its business operations management. For enhanced material requirements planning, it needed the ability to look at sales orders and determine the demand for spare parts, lead times, suppliers, inventory levels and capacity planning. The team also wanted to automate the bill of materials process to accurately detail parts, allocate raw materials to products, assign parts to a job, and provide a job cost estimate and job instructions.
