Prettl Automotive SUVI SAP Implementation
Case Study

Implementation Turnaround
Prettl management realized that in order to become a Tier 1 company, they needed a robust, scalable and replicable platform aligned with industry best practices. However, less than optimal internal stakeholder support and a lack of expert guidance by the consulting partner caused the project to become stagnant for months.

Services Delivered SAP implementation and systems integration consulting services, including nearshore software factory services. 8+ months stalled complex project completed in 18 weeks Prettl’s current systems did not provide the needed scalability. In addition, a need for integrating and standardizing business processes and master data across plants in different geographies became a top priority. Prettl decided to implement and enhance a pre-existing logistics corporate template that would serve as the basis to provide this extended functionality and standardization, which in turn would facilitate integration with customers and suppliers utilizing the same platform. The starting point included the following processes: •Order to Cash (Sales and Distribution) •Procure to Pay (Materials Management) •Plan to Produce (Production Planning, Warehouse Management) •Record to Report (Finance and Controlling) Less than optimal internal stakeholder support and a lack of expert guidance by the consulting partner caused the project to become stagnant for months. Needed a robust, scalable and replicable platform. NEORIS provided a quick turn around on a stalled project. NEORIS was hired to perform a quick turn around as the project was not making the expected progress. We started with a rapid assessment that served as the starting point for a go-live plan within a four-month period over the initial nine month implementation timeframe. A highly experienced team was put in place, including project and technical management, functional consultants and the NEORIS software factory for RICEF development. SAP modules included SD, PP, MM, WM, Finance and Controlling. NEORIS created a very proactive environment with 100% of key user dedication that included Corporate IT and other external consultants both in the U.S. and in Mexico, in addition to NEORIS’ Nearshore Software Factory. This allowed NEORIS to compress what would normally be a several months-long project into a four-month effort—without sacrificing quality or attention to detail--where the team successfully executed the approach described above. The approach involved several parallel fronts, including: •A template gap/fit analysis and accelerated blueprint •Data migration •Missing configuration •RICEF (Reports, Interfaces, Conversions, Enhancements and Forms) •Testing •Training cut-over •Go-live support for the operations in the U.S. and Mexico. 33 locations | 19 countries 7,200 employees 4 business units Automotive Electronics Energy Consumer Goods www.Prettl.com Prettl Automotive SUVI SAP Implementation | CASE STUDY Background The SUVI (Software Update VI) project was undertaken by the Automotive Division / Sensors, Cable and Cable Assembly internationally across the U.S. and Mexico. Sensors for steering systems and seat occupancy modules for automobiles are some of the products lines that require know-how in the area of injection molding technology, cable assembly and electronics. Flexible assembly boards enable short setup times for different models and ensure the high quality build of complex cable assemblies. Testing devices specially designed to customer requirements guarantee a complete final electrical inspection. Prettl works with their customers from planning to logistics development and concepts creation for product optimization and just in time delivery. Implementation Turnaround. Prettl management realized that in order to become a Tier 1 company, they needed a robust, scalable and replicable platform aligned with industry best practices. However, less than optimal internal stakeholder support and a lack of expert guidance by the consulting partner caused the project to become stagnant for months.

NEORIS took over the implementation and turned around the project, providing project management, technical and functional expertise and methodology. NEORIS played a key role, mediating between and managing the different stakeholders, namely the project sponsors, internal project management, business owners both in the U.S. and Mexico, Corporate IT and other external consultants. In addition to the subject matter expertise required and provided, NEORIS played a key role in managing communications to generate visibility so that the project owners could make timely decisions, which directly impacted the project results. The project went live successfully in 18 weeks and without major disruptions to the operations. This implementation will serve as the basis for an updated Global Corporate Template to be adopted by the company and deployed in additional facilities in Mexico and throughout Latin America. The project went live successfully in 18 weeks and without major disruptions to the operations. Prettl Automotive SUVI SAP Implementation | CASE STUDY When our project stagnated, we needed to find a solution, fast. With NEORIS, we found a partner who understood our pressing needs. They have the domain expertise, tools and resources and were able to turn the situation around, achieving a seamless and non- eventful go-live in 18 weeks whereas others have failed to do so in 8+ months.
