Operaize Achieves SAP Silver Partner Status in the SAP PartnerEdge Program

Operaize announced that it has achieved SAP silver partner status in the SAP PartnerEdge program, enabling the company to help customers implement planning and scheduling scenarios in increasingly complex decision-making environments. The company helps businesses in the manufacturing industry to accelerate innovation for AI-based production planning and scheduling in the cloud.

Operaize offers a high-speed engine with solvers that complement capabilities for complex production planning and scheduling use cases. Operaize integrates its AI-based production planning and scheduling solution Cognitive Operations with the production planning component within SAP ERP Central Component (SAP ECC) and SAP S/4HANA.

The solution drives customer value using artificial intelligence to achieve speed and accuracy while managing complexity at the same time. This helps enable customers to take their operational excellence to new heights, according to the vendor.

The integration helps customers use the full set of capabilities within the production planning component for SAP ECC and SAP S/4HANA and Cognitive Operations.

Cognitive Operations is distinguished by its ability to incorporate unmatched number of constraints, frame conditions, and objectives to generate optimal planning solutions while iteratively learning from the previous experiences.

This integration can deliver the following benefits:

  • The ease and efficiency of the integration can enable customers to access Cognitive Operations® through SAP ECC and SAP S/4HANA quickly.
  • Knowledge representation can enable learnings on the generated plans and schedules that will improve over time.
  • The confidence of having analytics in place allows customers to measure key metrics and KPIs while maintaining a clean data source.
  • Fast scenario generations can allow decision making in real time whereas, today, customers struggle to make decisions quickly without compromising on quality.

This approach helps enable customers to look beyond productivity and become resilient players who rethink and reinvent their planning practices, according to the vendors.

“Our partnership with SAP is an important milestone for Operaize,” said Operaize CEO, Franz Felsmann. “As an SAP partner, we can extend our reach into the SAP ecosystem and help manufacturing companies to increase their effectiveness with our AI-based production planning platform.”
