Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor International Corporation (MCO-I) combines highly efficient turbomachinery meticulously manufactured in Japan with fast, fine-tuned local services in the Gulf Coast region. In early 2018 MCO-I requested a proposal for their migration from their parent’s SAP ECC to S/4HANA. After a thorough selection process Cognitus Consulting was awarded the contract.
MCO-I’s decision to move to S/4HANA was based on:
. The ability to bring in new and improved functionality available in S/4HANA and be able to adapt quicker to specific business requirements driven by customers
. Allowing End-to-end process understanding and downstream impact of actions among teams.
. Establishing a core team of super users to induce knowledge to their teams and to increase collaboration between teams
. Creating a robust systems and best practice driven business processes.
. Streamlining, efficient and effective use of systems to facilitate on-time delivery, billing and payment processes.
. Defining a strong inter-system architecture between SAP, CRM, TeamCenter and other systems.
Since MCO-I was already on SAP ECC, and pleased with some of the functionality, the decision was made to implement a greenfield S/4HANA and adopt some of this functionality from the parent company and convert the data from ECC to S/4HANA.
