Customer

Entegris is a global leader in advanced materials science. Their SAP PLM journey began back in 2015 and continued with enhancements to their platform via LeverX Group’s BOM/Material Master Extension and Allocation Tool Solution (BMAX) described below.

CHALLENGE

CHALLENGE

Improving the time to value was a key business driver in the decision to implement the BMAX tool solution. Entegris desired a cost-effective, easily configurable tool that works within the SAP PLM suite vs. a stand-alone solution.

RESULTS

BMAX has allowed engineers to get a Material Number in SAP in a matter of seconds if needed. This PLM journey has brought agility to the production process, with a dramatic decrease in time lost due to creating and extending Materials; and a decrease in error due to the wrong people entering the wrong info at the wrong time. BMAX has allowed Entegris to automate data creation in a decentralized fashion, supporting the entry of the right data by the right people at the right time. Centralized data entry departments are a thing of the past; Entegris can now work in a parallel process. After a successful implementation in 2018, Entegris rolled out BMAX Worldwide to more than 15 plants, affecting over a hundred users.

The implementation of BMAX was just a first step in an overarching strategy to optimize our client’s product creation/change process. In the next phase, Entegris plans on rolling out the LeverX Group Integrated Process Solution (IPS), with BMAX integrated inside as a ‘subroutine’ or task that will be driven by a LeverX Group IPS, work-flow ticket.
