SAP S/4HANA for Procurement

Challenges

Benefits of SAP S/4HANA

  • When supply and sourcing processes are managed via Excel sheets, healthy decisions cannot be taken.
  • Inventory management and planning modules are integrated into SAP S/4HANA, which means the system automatically generate reliable data for strategic purchasing. In addition, thanks to up-to-date data on stocks and reliable prediction models, POs can be instantly prepared accordingly.
  • If there is no transparency, inventory and supply chain cannot be managed efficiently.
  • Cloud-based SAP Ariba (Software as a Service – Saas) ensure a more visible and easily managed supply chain.
  • Procurement is not simply buying the required materials for the best price. Quality and supplier reliability must be considered as well.
  • Bringing suppliers and partners on a single system perfectly serves the strategic vision of a business and minimizes supply chain risks. As a transparent platform to connect with suppliers, SAP Ariba offers only relevant content and works in integration with the whole system.
 
  • When managed appropriately, procurement is not a risk, but a competitive advantage, an enabler of innovation, and a support for business strength when accompanied by a strong supply base and close collaboration with suppliers.

SAP S/4HANA for Manufacturing

Challenges

Benefits of SAP S/4HANA

  • Production planning without considering equipment and staff capacities
  • SAP S/4HANA gives an integrated view of manufacturing availability and capacity.
  • Inaccurate planning in manufacturing resulting in longer cycles and higher costs.
  • MRP Live analyzes needs and receipts real-time and detects shortages immediately.
  • When there is material shortage in production, flexibility and demand management is compromised. And when manufacturing planning is inaccurate, sales and operations are impacted as well (bullwhip effect).
  • PP/DS uses live data to improve operational production, support better and informed decisions, and enable precise planning. Thanks to this function, manufacturing is performed with minimum delay or setup time, and certain orders can be given priority.
  • Without efficient planning, high levels of inventory are kept, and this causes unnecessary capital expenses or delays in delivery in case of material shortage.
  • A more visible material flow means better user acceptance and higher efficiency.
  • Supply can be simulated and managed in various scenarios.
 
  • With PP/DS function, capacity and MRPs become visible in an integrated manner.
 
  • Demand Driven MRP (DDMRP) function plans requirements by considering customer demand as well.
