Camstar Announces Broader Manufacturing Intelligence Solution for SAP

CHARLOTTE, N.C.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—February 6, 2008— Camstar Systems, Inc., a leading provider of Enterprise Manufacturing and Quality Systems and an SAP(R) Software Partner, announced today the release of its eDHR Intelligence(TM) version 4.2 application for Medical Device manufacturers. It is the industry's first application on SAP's xMII platform to provide an out-of-the-box method for Medical Device manufacturers to measure performance of the manufacturing operations with real-time KPIs delivered from Camstar Manufacturing(TM), the leading Manufacturing Execution System in the Medical Device industry.

The application offers full support of the manufacturing business process by automating the work order execution from SAP's ERP system to Camstar Manufacturing and progress reporting back in real time. eDHR Intelligence leverages Medical Device manufacturers' investment in the SAP platform by providing an out-of-the-box application built on the NetWeaver and xMII platform, which are the preferred SAP solutions for interoperability and intelligence for manufacturing.

The new features simplify the entire business process from Plan to Delivery. Manufacturers using eDHR Intelligence 4.2 will benefit from a composite view of production orders, detailed work-in-process prioritization and status, actual yields, expected completions, and ultimately delivery to the customer. Additional dashboard intelligence of aggregated KPIs, including production order yield by step, operation, lot and machine, is now available based on operational data from Camstar and SAP. The eDHR Intelligence solution integrates Camstar's best-in-class Manufacturing and Quality Execution solution with the SAP ERP application to address the unique challenges facing the Medical Device industry around risk mitigation, product/process complexity management and cost reduction. This service-oriented architecture (SOA)-based composite application empowers Medical Device manufacturers to reduce manufacturing variability, increase manufacturing efficiencies and ensure real-time intelligence and visibility.

"The eDHR Intelligence 4.2 composite application provides SAP customers with expanded value that will help them achieve enterprise operational excellence," said Scott Toney, President and CEO of Camstar. "In particular, the tight coupling of Camstar technology with the SAP xApp(TM) Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP xMII) composite application offers real-time communication of manufacturing data and global visibility into manufacturing operations through a single, role-based composite user experience."

Camstar delivers a comprehensive manufacturing application that is a highly configurable, best-in-class Manufacturing and Quality Execution System created to integrate quality into the manufacturing process and track and manage all production activity. Camstar provides global enterprises with the flexibility to meet individual plant requirements without software modifications, so each plant can maintain the required level of autonomy while leveraging a common manufacturing system supported across the entire production network.

Through SAP xApps Certified status, Camstar delivers on the promise of enterprise SOA following the principles and standards of SAP's composite architectural guidelines. Composite applications that are certified by the SAP Integration and Certification Center reuse, integrate and orchestrate functionalities from existing application assets in the context of an enterprise SOA, with only selective development of new functionality where needed to fill gaps. A composite application provides new application functionality, supports analysis followed by action (rather than mere read-only views), and enables the execution of business processes from start to finish.
