    SCM7324: Make SAP Do the Work: Moen’s Success Story of Implementing Discrete Manufacturing - In 2015, Moen embarked on an 18-month journey to move to the SAP Manufacturing Execution for Discrete Manufacturing rapid-deployment solution. The key objectives were to move away from customized solutions and to use standard functionality to plan, schedule, and execute production processes. Moen was able to build a business and system process that is stable, scalable, and repeatable. This resulted in a 30 percent increase in schedule attainment; 40 percent and 20 percent reduction in work-in-progress and plant inventory respectively; 55 percent cost reduction in cycle-count adjustment; and improved service levels. - Raj Veena, Moen; Brian Koester, Moen
