Are you looking for support or purchase information?

Out of the box connectivity with SAP, ERP LN, Baan, IBM Maximo and other ERP systems. Set of standard interfaces (ODBC, OLE DB), web service, XML, OPC, TCP/IP as well as specific protocols to communicate to external systems, equipment and control system.

ABB solution reduces the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for integration of ERP and plant systems by using a standard product for all vertical integrations, rather than custom developed point to point solutions.

ABB has a standardized SAP certified interface that uses ISA-95, SAP’s supported standard for vertical integration in the manufacturing industries. Using these standard certified components dramatically reduces project risk. This also lowers validation efforts for regulated industries.

With true system interoperability, the Integration module of the Enterprise Connectivity Solution (ECS) offers a foundation for highly scalable and flexible ABB Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES). ECS works with all your installed plant systems and helps you get the most value out of the investments you’ve already made.

The integration capability of the System 800xA DCS architecture (on which ECS is built) allows the data to reside in its original system, eliminating the need to replicate it into another historian, reducing cost and improving reliability.
Analyst's opinion: Allen Avery – ARC
"Doing large customized ERP integration is a waste of money"

In ARC’s view, ABB's Enterprise Connectivity (ECS) provides customers with one of the only productized ERP integration platforms on the market today. It drives out much of the complexity and the customization associated with ERP integration

Example

A company with 20 production sites may need at least 50 interfaces to SAP components. SAP has stated that programming and maintenance can cost around $20,000 per interface point; the total costs over a five year period are roughly $5 million. With ABB solution, only one standard interface to SAP is required.
