In early 2017, SAP Press published its first book on SAP Integrated Business Planning, and the response was so positive that the publisher began production on additional resources covering the supply chain solution: A second edition, a handful of electronic short-format books, and the most recent release, a look at S&OP.
What will you learn?
Sales and Operations Planning with SAP IBP is the comprehensive guide anyone working with SAP IBP needs to read to become a master of supply and demand planning. Begin with a look at SAP IBP configuration and how to set up your solution in a way that makes sense for your organization, and then learn to create plans based on forecasts and historical data. Whether you’re trying to find out how to procure resources without wasting warehouse space, or how to ensure you have enough product to meet demand, you’ll find S&OP help in these pages.
Make the most of your SAP IBP system by walking through global settings and master data. Then see how to get business data from whatever system you’re running—whether it’s SAP ERP or SAP S/4Hana—into SAP IBP.
But that’s only half the battle. With SAP IBP all ready to go and data flowing into the system, the next step is to make use of it. Discover how to use what-if scenarios, KPIs, dashboards, and native integrations to get the materials you need and create happy customers—take the guesswork out of sales and operations planning!
Other highlights include:
- Unconstrained and constrained supply planning
- Process management
- Planning views
- Case studies
Who is this book for?
Anyone looking to make better decisions in their supply chain. This could include those already on SAP IBP, or those still running SAP APO who are exploring the future of SCM. Sales and operations managers, business process owners, and end users will want to give this book a read, whether they come from an SMB or are part of a multinational corporation.
The book is just over 500 pages long and written by thought leaders in the logistics industry, including two SAP employees on the SAP IBP team. And, focused solely on S&OP, this book is the perfect complementary resource to SAP Press’ main SAP IBP offering. We recommend grabbing both—the book on the main solution’s functionality and implementation can be found here.
