Liberty partnered with a Global Aerospace and Defense Manufacturer to complete two independent ERP implementations. After completing a successful Infor program rescue for one division, Liberty evaluated and restructured an existing SAP implementation program for a Germany site in another division – saving the company millions.

Business Problem

A $2.5B Global Aerospace and Defense Manufacturing launched an SAP ECC6 implementation program at one of their division’s most complex and highest revenue sites. After facing significant challenges with program management, governance and controls, the ERP implementation was pushed 9 months, costing the business millions of dollars.   Liberty was asked to recover the program and stop additional cost overrun.

Business Outcome

Leveraging years of ERP functional, data and cutover expertise, Liberty partnered with the manufacturer to recover the large implementation program and develop a reusable SAP global template.

Liberty managed the SAP implementation and instilled best practices to ensure the program was measurable and successful.  A critical path to go-live and a comprehensive cutover plan were developed.  After establishing effective ERP management practices, the program was able to complete user testing, close all critical defects and issues, and execute a successful cutover.

Additionally, Liberty established the necessary tools, metrics, and procedures to ensure the manufacturer has a reusable global SAP template to deploy across all their divisions. The template provides a holistic view of their business and allows the manufacturer to identify synergies and opportunities for cost reduction and increase their bottom line.

Estimated cost savings of this project is over $4MM
