SAP S/4HANA® – Entering a new digital world within material resource planning
Can you redesign and renew your MRP process with SAP S/4HANA and SAP Fiori®?
All material planners are faced with many challenges and issues in their daily work which might need an immediate response. A typical scenario might be: your client changes his order at short notice, i.e. instead of black leather seats he wants brown leather seats for his new custom-built car. Since the primary suppliers cannot deliver in time, alternatives need to be checked, simulated and finally evaluated in order to respond to the customer’s request.
S/4HANA Enterprise Management software and state-of-the-art SAP Fiori Apps help you to easily manage such difficult business situations.
- A highly responsive supply chain leads to new ERP processes and system performance.
- Re-engineered processes and new technology will change the way people work.
- SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management and SAP Fiori Apps offer solutions for better MRP processes.
It is not only situations such as the delivery of black leather seats instead of brown ones from an alternative supplier that can be tackled much more promptly and accurately. Stock level simulations of different scenarios recommended by the system (reschedule or procure from a different supplier) will also improve overall supply chain transparency and reduce risks and disruption. Interconnected integrated business planning (IBP) and the subsequent questions whether the production can execute or the supplier can deliver on time need to be decided in seconds - not hours - and can be visualized with the help of SAP Fiori Apps.
Last but not least we think that organizational resistance to these new processes and systems can be overcome by appropriate project preparation and accompanying training curricula.
