Client

KUKA AG is one of the world’s leading suppliers of robotics and automated production systems and solutions.

Challenge

Following its cross-company strategy “KUKA 2020,” KUKA has started intensive initiatives within the whole group towards positioning themselves to serve new attractive growth markets and becoming a leading Internet of Things company. To ensure its profitable growth, a stable, scalable, and group-wide foundation with harmonized, efficient processes and data is required.

Project

Within a strategic design assessment BearingPoint defined a new, harmonized KUKA process house and target IT architecture based on group-wide standardized master data definitions. This resulted in three main implementation initiatives (central customer management, central ERP solution based on SAP’s latest S/4 HANA release, and a common HR system) and supporting activities like a new product structure concept and a harmonized, globally installed base as a prerequisite for new Internet of Things business models.

Impact

The first benefits have been realized within the three main implementation streams with global template realization and first pilot rollouts. In addition, a release strategy for further template developments and a global rollout plan covering the next five years have been established.
