Not all books get a second edition. Even fewer get a third. SAP Press recently released the fourth version of its popular business user guide to SAP plant maintenance with SAP Enterprise Asset Management.
The book has been updated to include, among other things, information on SAP’s successor to R/3 ERP systems, S/4Hana.
Dr. Karl Liebstückel’s latest iteration of Plant Maintenance with SAP: Business User Guide expands upon the goal from the original, 2008 version, which is to show you how to handle plant maintenance with SAP software.
And with three previous versions worth of reader feedback and changes within the SAP ecosystem to incorporate, even readers of older editions will find something worthwhile in the book’s 689 pages.
What will you learn?
The beauty of SAP Press’s Business User Guide series is that they provide the information you need to perform your day-to-day tasks, in this case using Enterprise Asset Management to handle all of your plant maintenance needs.
Filled with step-by-step instructions, this user guide offers tips on how to structure functional locations, capture shift notes and shift reports, master planned repairs and refurbishments, manage subcontracting, and more.
Dr. Liebstückel was the obvious choice to write this book years ago, and still is now.
As professor of information management and business software at the Würzburg-Schweinfurt University of Applied Sciences, Germany, and former chairman of the German SAP User Group (DSAG), he’s kept his finger on the pulse of SAP Plant Maintenance software for years.
He puts his expertise on full display here, helping you dive into the technologies that make plant maintenance tick in SAP. Learn about SAP Work Manager, Rounds Manager, Business Client, and Hana —and how they all inform your work with SAP Plant Maintenance.
Who will this book benefit?
This book is written for anyone who needs to know how to use an SAP Plant Maintenance system. If you’re a project lead for a plant maintenance project, you’ll find the project management and IT strategy you’ll need to lead your team to a successful outcome.
If you’re following the lead of a project manager and tasked with creating particular plant maintenance systems, you’ll find sections on business processes and procedures extremely helpful.
If you’re a manager, you will find help in referencing the book to find out whether or not the SAP system can or cannot do what you’ll be asking it to do.
Key users and consultants will get in-depth background information necessary to not only understand the systems themselves, but to be able to teach colleagues and clients to understand their systems better.
