Communiqué de presse - Le 11 avril 2022 - Aicomp’s and T.CON’s solutions benefit packaging manufacturers through industry collaboration

For almost 10 years, the Aicomp Group and SAP Gold Partner T.CON GmbH & Co. KG have been working together to implement ERP solution projects for the packaging market, with Aicomp as a leading provider of ERP solutions in the packaging industry and T.CON as an internationally active SAP consulting company with a focus on manufacturing companies. Collectively the two companies are now advancing their successful collaboration through a sales and implementation partnership with the goal of offering an inclusive ERP solution from a single source.

As a full-service SAP provider, T.CON is a specialist in setting up digitally integrated end-to-end processes in manufacturing companies. One focus of T.CON's SAP SE-certified expertise is on surface manufacturing, the mill products in the SAP Industry Solution Portfolio, and in particular the areas of paper, film, and coating. T.CON focuses on comprehensive SAP standard modules as well as industry solutions for planning and production optimization.

As an expert in complex SAP product configuration and SAP cloud solutions, Aicomp specializes in ERP industry solutions for the packaging market. Their primary focus began with corrugated board packaging (boxes, sheet and displays) and eventually expanded to include folding carton and flexible packaging. This is all possible due to their software product VCPowerPack, which facilitates everything from product configuration through costing, pricing, and finished goods material creation.

Together, T.CON and Aicomp benefit their customers by offering a solution that is already integrated in the SAP product configuration, offering their customers fast turnaround time for quotation requests, improving efficiencies, and optimizing production for waste reduction.

Integrated solutions are trending in the packaging market

"We have recognized for some time that in the market, especially within the packaging industry, there is increasing demand for integrated solutions. We are convinced that the products and solutions offered by our two companies ideally complement each other, and that we can offer our customers real added value based on their SAP systems," explains Jens Hennecke, CEO EMEA at Aicomp.

"The aim of the partnership between these two highly specialized companies, since they do complement each other perfectly, is to provide packaging manufacturers with end-to-end processes - from order to incoming payment on a system platform that is fully integrated with SAP," says Saša Mihajlović, Head of the Paper and Packaging Production Business Unit at T.CON.

In addition to dedicated SAP expertise, predefined industry logics and processes, both partners bring a range of highly specialized software products to their partnership that complement the standard SAP portfolio.

Aicomp is expanding its software solution portfolio with the SAP ERP add-on VCPowerPack which is utilized for real-time configuration and costing, and the SAP Sales Cloud from the SAP C/4HANA portfolio for customer relationship management. T.CON brings their TRIM SUITE software for waste optimization to the collaboration, which is used for paper, mill production, and corrugated board production. Their Manufacturing Execution System MES CAT for production execution supports production planning and control.

Best practice solutions that can be adapted as needed

"In order to provide more packaging manufacturers with a secure path to digitalization, our partnership will include the development of further preconfigured and fully integrated best-practice solutions - in other words, genuine solution packages that can be flexibly adapted to individual customer requirements as needed and with manageable effort. We are focusing on end-to-end industry-specific process optimization in conjunction with rapid implementation scenarios," says Christopher Stangl, head of the Discrete Manufacturing business unit at T.CON.

"The deep integration of these market-leading software products into SAP ERP enables packaging manufacturers to build specialized total solutions that guarantee high reliability and, thanks to state-of-the-art technology, allow agile scalability for future market and production requirements. Real-time data exchange and the ability to receive and process data without any manipulation are very significant. In addition, the maintenance effort is minimized by eliminating interfaces to external services," says Jeroen Koopman, CEO Americas at Aicomp.

Communiqué de presse - Le 11 avril 2022 - Shipping company Alfons Hakans trusted Steerprop to modernise the control system on Artemis, one of the longest-serving ASD tugs in the company’s fleet. Steerprop made the process quick, easy, and cost-efficient.

Back in 2019, the technical department at Alfons Hakans noticed a need to modernise and upgrade the propulsion control system on its Azimuth Stern Drive tug Artemis. It was no longer possible to get spare parts for its original control system; and although it was still reliable, for safety reasons the company decided to look for reasonable solutions for a full-scale upgrade.

“We noticed pretty quickly that it made sense to renew all parts related to the control of the propulsion units,” says technical manager Tuomas Raumanen. “Basically, everything between the master’s hands and propulsion units had to be replaced, including things like control levers, cables, computer units, and feedback sensors.”

Alfons Hakans began to look for suppliers, and Steerprop, located near Hakans’ headquarters, promptly gave a quotation. Raumanen notes that Hakans particularly appreciated the ease of communication and rapid responses, and this, topped with fast delivery and a reasonable price, made Steerprop an obvious choice.

Minimal downtime

The final order was confirmed at the end of 2020. First, Steerprop paid a few visits to get to know Artemis and its operations. During these visits, a timetable was set to ensure the downtime of the tug was kept to a minimum.

To decrease the amount of downtime, Hakans’ own workers and subcontractors started preliminary works, such as installing new cables and manufacturing foundations for electric cabinets, whilst the tug was still operating normally. Meanwhile, Steerprop was building the entire control system at their workshop.

“This way the installation time onboard would be as short as possible,” Raumanen says.

The installation began at the end of August. First, the old control system was dismantled, and the team ensured that all necessary cables had been installed. Next, all-electric cabinets related to the new system were installed, which was an easy process thanks to all the preliminary work.

Connecting the new cables to different units was the most time-consuming part, and it was completed on schedule. After seven days of work, it was time to run a test. During the sea trials, the adjusting of the final parameters was easily done as it had been considered already when planning the software.

Increased reliability

From the beginning of the installation to final approval from Alfons Hakans, installing the new control system took nine days in total.

“After sea trials and final adjustments, our masters and chief engineers were satisfied and also surprised how well the whole process went,” Raumanen says. “Of course it takes a while before masters and others get used to the new type of control levers, but that’s common when changes are made to older vessels.”

The biggest advantages in comparison to the old system are, in Raumanen’s view, that all adjustments are very easy to make, and the new system is significantly more reliable. The information the system provides about the status of the propulsion units is also much easier to understand.

In total, Raumanen estimates the upgrade to add 10 to 15 years to the lifecycle of the vessel.

“All in all, we’ve been satisfied with the new control system and will continue our good relationship with Steerprop in the future,” he notes.

Remote service diagnostics streamline maintenance

From Steerprop’s point of view, the co-operation with Alfons Hakans went extremely well. Technical Sales Manager Esa Peltomaa tells that Steerprop designers were in frequent contact with the personnel on board to ensure that the new system fitted existing spaces and locations as well as fulfilled the wishes of end-users.

Steerprop delivered a control system modified to existing propulsion, as well as a bridge control system with control levers, control panels, and relevant touch screens. Like Raumanen, Peltomaa says that the new system is more user-friendly than the old one, and it also conveys detailed information that makes service operations, changing settings, and calibrations easy and reliable.

Steerprop was also able to make customisations based on the customer’s wishes. For example, bridge control panels were customised to fit existing cabinets, and touch screen views, control panel buttons, and indications fit existing vessel functionalities and desired functions.

“By modernising the system, Steerprop also provided a capability for remote service diagnostics, which gives Steerprop’s service department the ability to diagnose faults and status of the system remotely,” Peltomaa explains. “This makes better service assistance possible by diagnosing possible faults even before the first service engineer’s visit on board.”

Essentially, the vessel has now been future-proofed. For example, should Alfons Hakans want to replace existing units with Steerprop’s azimuth propulsors, the existing control systems can be fully utilised with minimal changes to further improve cost-effectiveness.

“Steerprop guarantees the serviceability for our products for decades by using and selecting components that are not becoming obsolete as well as designing the system well enough that future upgrades are possible with minimal work,” Peltomaa concludes.

Steerprop

Steerprop is a leading designer and manufacturer of azimuth propulsion systems for the most demanding applications and toughest conditions. Since its founding in Finland in 2000, the company has delivered fit-for-purpose units for hundreds of vessels, including every third icebreaker in operation around the world. Steerprop’s unrivaled arctic experience and fit-for-purpose solutions are a testament to the company’s commitment to continuous development, steadfast dedication to meet the customers’ needs, and an unwavering resolve to perform.
