home

Seamless connectivity between core systems like SAP S/4HANA, a Product Information Management (PIM) systems, Salesforce Manufacturing Cloud, Salesforce Rebate Management, Tableau, Salesforce Service Cloud and factory floor data with pre-built APIs, implementation templates, reference architecture, and additional technical assets.

Transparency is key to eliminating waste and managing costs in a manufacturing environment. Manufacturing companies have the data to make critical decisions, but are inhibited from making timely decisions due to siloed and disconnected data.

MuleSoft Accelerator for Manufacturing equips discrete and process manufacturers with foundational assets for common use cases to accelerate their digital transformation journey. Our pre-built APIs, implementation templates, reference architecture, and connectors allow IT teams to spend more time innovating, and less time building common integrations from scratch.

Use cases

  • Use case 1 - Run-rate business management — Syncing data from SAP S/4HANA and PIM systems into Manufacturing Cloud can be challenging and time consuming. This solution seamlessly sends customer and order data from SAP into Manufacturing Cloud. It also sends product data and price lists from a PIM system into Salesforce Manufacturing Cloud. As a result, it enables sales teams to have a complete view of customer sales agreements.Visibility into sales agreements provides predictability, which is critical to manage any manufacturing business. This precision in predictability helps manufacturers and their customers with their run-rate business:
    • Manufacturers plan better for production and ensure sales accuracy
    • Customers secure supply and control costs of materials
  • Use case 2 - Sales rebate management — Manually uploading sales rebate payout details from Salesforce Rebate Management to SAP can be error prone. This solution seamlessly syncs customer and sales order data between SAP and Salesforce Manufacturing Cloud, and creates a credit memo in SAP in line with program guidelines and calculations. As a result, sales teams can trust that aggregate customer sales order data will trigger the correct sales rebate payouts and accounting teams will benefit from seamless documentation and tracking of sales rebate payments.Manufacturing companies can reliably trust unified data to make informed rebate management decisions to drive future growth.
    • Manufacturer sales, marketing, and finance teams can track and measure performance more effectively
    • Finance teams can trust payout records
    • Customers receive timely and accurate payouts
  • Use case 3 - Total productive maintenance — It can be challenging for manufacturers to monitor and maintain equipment. Not maintaining equipment in a timely manner can also disrupt normal plant operations. This solution seamlessly aggregates factory floor equipment data, like temperature and vibration, into a data visualization tool. This data visualization tool can model the data, and a business user can pre-define business criteria to trigger equipment maintenance work orders in a servicing case management system. As a result, the entire operations team can rely on near real-time data to manage the health of production equipment and optimize production demands. Manufacturers can make use of their own factory data to minimize equipment-related disruption.
    • Plants can reduce downtime more efficiently
    • Operations can conduct the required maintenance at the right time
    • Organizations can improve employee engagement and worker safety

Shared use cases (located in the MuleSoft Accelerator for SAP):

  • Procure-to-pay — Streamline your procure-to-pay process with pre-built APIs, implementation templates, and connectors to seamlessly move supplier, invoice, and goods receipt data.
  • Quote-to-cash: Salesforce and SAP S/4HANA — Sync order, inventory, and customer data from opportunity to close between Salesforce Sales Cloud (including CPQ) and SAP S/4HANA.
  • Quote-to-cash: B2B EDI — Enable the sales order/purchase order and post-purchase order transaction flows between businesses, with one business serving as the buyer and the other as the supplier. This is to support the inclusion of EDI message formats (both X12 and EDIFACT formats) as a form of communication between applications. You can also easily integrate Slack with sales and purchase orders for prompt action by the operation and service teams.
  • Real-time and bulk data lakes integration — Send sales order, inventory, and customer information from source systems to common data lake storage repositories. This integration creates a foundation for surfacing key objects in a structured data warehouse and ultimately an analytics platform like Tableau for predictive business intelligence.

What is a MuleSoft Accelerator?

Accelerators are a collection of technical assets (predominantly API specifications and implementation templates) and documentation to accelerate the implementation of multiple use cases supporting a larger business and/or industry problem.

Accelerators are designed as modular building blocks. Customers can change the patterns, mappings, and endpoints to suit their needs. They represent best practices we recommend to customers in accomplishing these use cases. Customers will save hours of discovery, design, development, and testing each time they use an accelerator asset.

To access any of the links described in this Accelerator, you must log into Anypoint Platform.


Give the assets a try and if you have any questions or feedback, please let us know at solutions-questions@mulesoft.com. You can also engage with other users on the MuleSoft Forum, and submit ideas in the Ideas Portal. We look forward to hearing from you.
