SAP for Automotive Suppliers

Make your business model fit for the future

Achieve operational excellence with msg and SAP

Ever shorter development cycles, increasingly complex production processes and massive competitive pressure are forcing medium-sized automotive suppliers in particular to further increase their efficiency and productivity. New market actors like Google and Apple are changing the playing field in the automotive industry with new technologies and business models. Digitalized processes are opening up new business opportunities here.

Our hearts beats SAP

Current challenges for automotive suppliers

  • Are our logistics processes optimally structured?
  • Can we manage warranty claims and refunds automatically?
  • What can a simplified processing of goods movements look like?
  • Are continuous quality controls integrated into our processes?
  • Do we know our customers' needs well enough?
  • How can we optimize our materials and product management?
  • Do we meet supplier standards and OEM requirements?

Our portfolio offers the right solutions

The schedule is set: In 2027, SAP will discontinue its support for the currently active SAP version ECC 6.0 EhP 8. One thing is certain: All companies, which are currently using SAP and want to continue using it must have migrated to SAP S/4HANA by then. This is a far reaching change that has huge innovation and optimization potential for digital transformation. We accompany you on this journey and get you in shape for your transformation process.


Whether  SAP S/4HANA implementation, transformation or optimization – with our industry knowledge and project experience you are on the right side. As a full-service provider, msg also offers you managed services and application management in addition to distinctive implementation and transformation expertise.


In fast-moving times, maintaining competitiveness is a top priority - and digitalization reinforces this situation. To meet this challenge, automotive suppliers need efficient, flexible and transparent processes in logistics and in JIT/JIS handling. Tailored, practice-oriented and highly configurable SAP solutions, such as those deployed by msg, are the prerequisite for this.

We are happy to advise you!

Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) help to continuously improve important key figures such as times, quality, scrap and traceability. Besides the implementation of SAP MES, process-related and data-related integration of existing MES solutions into the SAP overall concept is also part of our consulting services. In this context, we attach great importance to the integrative mapping of horizontal and vertical integration in the company - from the store floor to the top floor.


Up-to-date, valid information that is quickly available and n a readable format has become an indispensable production factor for companies. Today, up-to-datedness, validity and formatting are provided by ERP systems with uniform database systems (single source of truth). Benefit from our extensive experience in business analytics along the entire value added chain.

Product offensives and a steadily increasing number of variants place a high burden on the processes and systems of automotive companies and bring to light any weak points or a lack of integration of the IT systems. To identify the resulting need for action, design and efficiently implement solutions, we provide you with our expertise in process and system integration and also in product data management.

The added value of a company largely depends on the flexibility of its supply chain. We help you obtain the right information for relevant decisions. When designing processes and systems for an optimal supply chain, we consider all units of your company. For this, we rely on our main areas of experience in supplier management and parts logistics.

Successful quality management is a key element for your competitiveness. We help you to expand it. In doing so, we rely on our experience when designing company-wide and cross-company systems and processes for OEM and suppliers. When setting up your quality management, we involve all relevant company departments – from development to after sales.

The virtual representation of a product or system by a digital twin offers huge potential for new services and business models. With our digital twin readiness assessment, we are able to answer, among other things, how far your company is on the way to becoming a digital twin. You benefit from our long-term experience of use cases and benefit analysis of digital twins.


Without agility and flexibility, companies have no chance in the digitalized economy. For manufacturing companies, the world is spinning faster and faster: shorter development cycles, increasingly complex production processes, massive competitive pressure. They are forced to continuously increase their efficiency and productivity.

We offer discrete manufacturers an open platform for the fast use of AI-based apps for production and logistics, directly usable and quality-assured from the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. High transparency and flexibility in manufacturing processes through smart analytics and early warning systems. Intelligent apps for a data-driven enterprise. An ecosystem for “Smart Factory”


"As a certified SAP full-service provider, we naturally set store in SAP S/4HANA. But the SAP standard software is not a dogma . Custom or non-SAP solutions can continue to exist and be integrated into an overall SAP concept. We achieve the bests results for our customers with this approach."
