Review: Production Planning With SAP S/4 Hana

Production planning in today’s ERP systems is all about mapping your manufacturing processes and business requirements to their technological counterparts. For SAP users, that means allocating your business’ inventory and personnel both in the real world and in your SAP S/4 Hana system.

SAP Press’ new guide to production planning in S/4 Hana is a great place to start.

What will you learn?

Since SAP Press’ last book on production planning, the SAP community has undergone several major changes, not least of which is the move to SAP S/4 Hana. Production Planning with SAP S/4 Hana is SAP Press’ response to these changes. It contains all of the industry examples and best practices you need to navigate the implementation, configuration, and use of production planning with SAP S/4 Hana.

This book walks readers through standard manufacturing processes as well as innovations in production planning and control such as DDMRP. You’ll gain a better understanding of the core concepts of production planning. Then you will move into configuration, monitoring and reporting. Furthermore, you will get to know cross-component functionalities like the classification system, Early Warning System, and SAP Fiori apps.

Dive into production and material planning workflows and learn to apply them to each of the key manufacturing types: discrete, process, and repetitive (REM) manufacturing. This book reveals how each functionality—from batch management to S&OP to demand management—works with a particular production type so that you can best optimize your supply chain.

Other highlights include:

  • Material requirements planning (MRP)
  • Long-term planning (LTP)
  • Capacity requirements planning (CRP)
  • Reporting and analysis
  • Information systems
