SAP SCM - APO Short Overview Supply Chain Management Advanced Planner and Optimizer @ - The Supply Chain Management process in SAP Demand Planning — SCM DP Supply Network Planning — SCM SNP Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling — SCM PPDS Procurement Planning — SCM PPDS or R3 MRP The Core Interface — CIF Comments on other modules The Supply Chain Management process in SAP The objective of the Supply Chain Management process is to ensure that the company has the desired products available for its customers at the right time and place, at a minimal cost for the company. An efficient Supply Chain will enable the company to have: 9 a higher service level = less shortages = less customers disappointed = more sales 9 a lower stock level = less cash needed to run the operations 9 lower operational costs = less emergency shipments, for instance The Supply Chain Management process in SAP . The process starts by forecasting the future sales (Demand Planning). Then the optimal product quantities to distribute in the company’s network are determined (Supply and Network Planning). From this distribution plan is deduced an ideal production plan (Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling). Finally, this production plan is used to source the required components (Procurement Planning). These steps are performed in different modules of the SAP SCM solution (formerly SAP APO — Advanced Planning and Optimizer), described briefly in the following slides. Demand Planning — « The Demand Planning process is performed in the SCM DP module. Its objective is to determine which products are needed for which customer or location, in which quantity and on which date. This is estimated via the process presented in the following slide, performed periodically (monthly, weekly... depending on the company and type of product). Demand Planning — Monitor forecast accuracy I Upload last penod Clean sales history of exceptional events Release forecast to Distribution Planning Launch statistical forecast Add promotions Adjust the forecasts Supply Network Planning — . The Supply Network Planning Process is performed in the SNP module. Its objective is to plan the stock transfers needed between the different locations (factories, warehouses) to reach the target stock level and fulfill the demand at each of theselocaﬂons. Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling — The Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling process is performed on each factory. Its objective is to determine the optimal quantities to produce in order to fulfill the demand, limit overstocks as well as products set—up time (time lost when switching from a product to the next). Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling — By considering the demand on the factory (Sales orders, forecast, or stock transfers to warehouses), the target stock level on the factory, and the production constraints (lot sizes,...) the Production Planning determines how much is to be produced for all each product perpenod. This is calculated for the Finished Products, anc then for the intermediary Semi—Finished Products. Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling - PPDS TC: %a Then by performing a , the different production orders are scheduled optimally within a period. ll-_:- 35.

The objective of this step is to determine the components to supply in order to be able to realize the Production Plan. This process can be performed in the SCM PPDS module for critical components to be planned in detail, or in SAP R3 using the Materials Requirements Planning (MRP) functionality. The Core Interface — . SAP SCM and SAP R3 are two different systems, which need to be integrated. Some SAP R3 data is sent regularly to SAP SCM for the Supply Chain Management process: product master data, sales orders,... Some SAP SCM data is also sent to SAP R3 to perform the related execution processes: production orders, transfer orders,... The Core Interface (CIF) is the standard interface between these two environments. Comments on other modules . Some other modules are part of SAP SCM process, and can be implemented depending on the requirements of the company: - Global Available to Promise — GATP: to determine the availability of components or products - 'ransport Planning/Vehicle Scheduling — PVS: to realize the detailed transport plan of he products
Good and short, but pretty basic though
Thanks for the information, very helpful
Very concise overview of the main concepts of SCM APO and how the are linked to each other to cover supply chain business processes. Thanks.
It's good and concise as an introduction, but very basic. Would be nice to have some more insights on each module.
It's nice and short, good introduction to the basics, thanks.
