Mentor Graphics' Valor Production Plan Tool Achieves SAP Certification


Reading time ( words)

Mentor Graphics Corporation today announced that its Valor Production Plan software has been certified by SAP as powered by the SAP® NetWeaver technology platform. The integration of the Valor Production Plan tool with SAP NetWeaver streamlines PCB assembly planning, including surface mount technology (SMT), manual assembly and test, helping to improve manufacturing efficiency and reduce operational cost. The Valor Production Plan solution can add finite printed circuit board (PCB) production planning to the SAP ERP application.

The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that Valor Production Plan integrates as a content package of SAP Process Integration technology (version 7.4) to exchange critical data with instances of SAP Business Suite software. As part of this certification, the Valor Production Plan software has demonstrated capabilities to exchange bill of material, work/purchase order and material availability check between SAP ERP 6.0 and Valor Production Plan. The SAP certification helps Mentor customers to quickly and easily integrate Valor Production Plan software into SAP solutions. This benefits customers by improving the interoperability of the Valor Production Plan tool with SAP applications and with the large ecosystem of solutions that run on SAP NetWeaver. Choosing an SAP-certified solution can also help reduce overall IT investment costs and risks.

The Valor Production Plan product increases manufacturing capacity and productivity by minimizing line downtime and product changeover. With increased product mix, lot size reductions, and short lifecycles, the Valor Production Plan tool is critical for electronics assembly manufacturing. This is an optimum, single solution for long-, medium- and short-term planning which improves on-time delivery with reduced capital expenditure.

"SAP certification is one of the most popular technology certifications recognized in the industry. This is a further validation of the strength of our solution," stated Dan Hoz, general manager of Mentor Graphics Valor Division. "The ability of our Valor tools to run on SAP NetWeaver and interoperate with other SAP NetWeaver–based solutions is highly beneficial to our global customers."
