Armac collaborated with BCC to develop a solution to integrate RIOsys with SAP ERP SAP Aerospace & Defense, and consequently obtain the Powered by SAP NetWeaver certificate, creating new opportunities for Armac within the aviation marketplace.
RIOsys, from Armac Systems, is a leading MRO inventory planning and optimization solution for the aviation industry.It is used by airlines and aircraft maintenance orgnisations for planning and optimization of rotable and consumable parts. Armac’s solution enables the organization to significantly reduce their MRO (maintenance, repair & overhaul) inventory investment, delivering annual inventory cost savings, while improving and maintaining service levels and delivering improved management control.
One of the unique features of RIOsys is its integration with ERP systems such as SAP. These actions include stock transfer orders and maintenance orders that are executed directly in SAP using the standard Plant Maintenance functionality. In order to integrate RIOsys solution with SAP, Armac developed an extension (component) between RIOsys and SAP – a standard interface which would support data transfer between the two systems. Armac invited BCC to collaborate on the project.
“We were very impressed with our project engagement with BCC. Their SAP subject matter expertise and technical integration knowledge were of significant benefit in delivering the project on time, on budget and to the high quality standard needed for SAP ICC certification. We look forward to a long and profitable working relationship with BCC as we partner to implement our SAP Integration Framework for customers” – said Alex Keane,Executive Vice President Operations from Armac Systems.
At the end of October 2013, the SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) which piloted the interface development project, certified that the RIOsys 9.0 solution from Armac Systems integrates with the SAP NetWeaver 7.02 platform and runs as ABAP extension to the SAP ERP system.
