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.
Rachel Morris from Boeing will be delivering the following two sessions:
Detailed scheduling and dispatching – Trying to use core SAP ECC as the only production scheduling tool. Tackling the little used, and slightly dated functionality to provide detailed capacity driven scheduling for small fast turnaround parts. Using work centres, materials, and dispatching of planned and production orders.
Hints & Tips – A reminder of the basics for some, and unveiling time savers and tricks for others in SAP ECC6 (also compatible with HANA). It's always surprising what you don’t know, this is hopefully an opportunity to open up the floor for other tips from more experienced users.
Chris Stainthorpe & Ruan van Vuuren from Olivehorse will present Why would you want to transition from SAP APO to SAP IBP, and what are your options?
SAP APO is a dated solution with some deficiencies e.g. user experience, scenario planning, financialisation and embedded analytics & alerting.
SAP IBP has recently received significant development investment by SAP and has developed considerably as a replacement for APO. IBP now meets or exceeds the functional capabilities of APO in demand, time-series supply and inventory planning. Chris and Ruan will talk through some of the new functionalities and discuss how businesses who have already transitioned are leveraging SAP IBP to maximise the supply chain business value.
Moving from APO towards IBP presents an opportunity to also consider processes and system adoption issues. This session will discuss some of the learnings and best practices we have seen to grow supply chain planning maturity levels. Many customers have already undertaken this journey and the session will detail the various possible approaches and the pros and cons.
Olivehorse specialises in supply chain planning implementations and has a number of services to support a company from an APO landscape to an SAP IBP footprint and beyond, to create a sustainable process and technology solution.
John Robinson from SAP will present What is the business case for S/4HANA enabled Supply Chain transformation?
In this session we will discuss the challenges faced by supply chain professionals, IT departments and SAP with respect to S/4 enabled supply chains. Key topics will include:
