Our SCM SIG covers the entire supply chain: IBP (integrated business planning); forecasting; inventory optimisation; planning and scheduling; sales order processing; procurement; receipt of goods from suppliers; manufacturing; sub-contracting; warehousing and storage and despatches to customers - anything SAP related to these business processes.
We understand how important networking at our face to face events is to you and since we can't get together in person right now, the session will start 30 minutes before the SIG commences so you can grab a coffee and have a virtual catch up with the SIG chairs and other attendees.
