As part of the implementation of SAP R/3 at the Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft in Kiel, Germany, Atlantec Enterprise Solutions has been chosen to develop the link from the Tribon Hull shipbuilding software to R/3.
The link is to be developed in close cooperation with HDW’s own software house, NIS Norddeutsche Informations-Systeme GmbH. Using information extracted from Tribon, the Topgallant software supplied by Atlantec Enterprise Solutions will prepare data for the ERP system.
The Topgallant solution to be provided will support both the initial transfer of data shortly before the burning start of each block, as well as any subsequent changes to that block during production. Using interactive tools supplied with Topgallant, all data can be tracked, verified and, if required, modified independently of Tribon.
The link to be provided by Topgallant will be used for all new construction programs in both the submarine and commercial shipbuilding departments at HDW. The software to be used at HDW includes the standard Topgallant infrastructure as well as customized adapters for Tribon and SAP R/3.
