Review: Materials Management with SAP S/4 Hana

From finance to business warehousing to CRM and more: those who have spent any time investigating SAP in the past few years will have come across a new solution (or five). Its logistics offerings are also making the move to the next generation. SAP Press has a new book on the materials management functionality in S/4 Hana.

What will you learn?

Materials management is one of the broadest supply chain disciplines, and this book will help you make the MM transition to S/4 Hana. Materials Management with SAP S/4HANA: Business Processes and Configuration will teach you how to create an organizational structure and then explore critical processes in three areas of MM—materials planning, procurement, and inventory.

Dive deeper into core MM subprocesses such as purchase requisitions and orders, and forecasting. Beyond basic MM functionality, the book also covers advanced topics such as batch management, the Early Warning System, and other built-in tools.

This is a guide focused on configuring your business processes, so if you’re just getting started with logistics with S/4 Hana, you’ll find helpful configuration instructions here. Make your system fit your unique requirements and easily take your functionality into the future.

Other highlights include:

  • Material master data
  • Material Ledger
  • Document management system
  • Physical inventory
  • Material requirements planning (MRP)
  • Goods issue/goods receipt (GI/GR)

Who is this book for?

Materials management is a broad topic, and this book is designed to help you out across the board. However, it isn’t just for those working directly with materials planning, procurement, and inventory processes. Anybody working in a logistics-based role and using SAP solutions will want to give this book a read. Beyond that, sales and distribution specialists might also find useful insights into what happens once they’ve made the sale.

At 946 pages, this is a hefty book and well-worth the investment. The bestseller by Jawad Akhtar maintains the vision of Martin Murray’s long-running authoritative guide to MM in ERP to help today’s supply chain practitioners optimize their systems.
