Efficient and networked production processes using SAP Production Planning

The complexity of production processes is constantly growing and poses constantly increasing requirements to production planning. Be it material availability, capacity requirements planning or the close links with other corporate divisions: without the efficient networking of individual processes, a company will lose its competitiveness. An innovative solution to this problem is the implementation of SAP Production Planning, a module of the real-time ERP SAP S/4HANA Suite.

By means of the real-time mapping of planning and controlling processes, this software solution offers ideal conditions for well-founded planning and high flexibility so that you will be best prepared for just-in-time and just-in-sequence deliveries. In addition, the communication of the production module with other SAP management solutions optimizes the software efficiency.

Functions of production planning with SAP for increased competitiveness

  • Automated production controlling
  • Capacity requirements planning: optimum utilization of production capacities
  • Sequence control: the order prioritization at full production capacity avoids bottlenecks
  • Program planning: determination of type and quantity of the products within individual planning periods
  • Scheduling: the definition of the start and finish dates of individual worksteps enables you, for instance, to place small order projects around a big project and, consequently, to optimize utilization
  • Material staging by just-in-time or just-in-sequence delivery reduces the capital invested
  • Determination of manufacturing process: multiple manufacturing processes can be mastered, such as multilevel productions, repetitive manufacturing or make-to-order production
  • Quality inspection during production using the SAP Quality Management module
