The Increased Manufacturing Responsiveness ES bundle improves manufacturing responsiveness as well as the manufacturing decision-making process by enabling full visibility of production and plan order capacity and alterations to production schedule such as order changes of existing production and process orders in SAP ERP PP (with EhP5).

This includes visibility to forecast and actual production info as well as feasibility check of the new schedule with respect to raw material availability.
Enterprise services in this bundle also provide additional details on MRP-relevant data as well as BOM details relevant for manufacturing processes; data that would be required to re-plan production schedule for finished and semi-finished goods i.e. in food manufacturing.

The benefits provided by the Increased Manufacturing Responsiveness ES bundle include:

  • Viewing of demand and production data on a single screen and across all sites.
  • Facilitation of simulation of production runs with real-time data against constraints of material availability, production process & capacity utilization
  • Quickening of Re-planning of production based on late demand changes
  • Removes use of spreadsheets for sub-daily planning, eliminating manual consolidation of excel data into SAP
  • Better full delivery service on time with increased freshness of products
  • Reduced out of stock at stock point
  • Lower production costs and optimize production resources
  • Full visibility status of current production versus current demand by SKU
  • Reduced transportation and warehousing cost, reduced inventory levels
  • Reduction in wastage and better capacity utilization

How to Use This ES Bundle

This bundle provides the users with additional details on product availability for production orders (bulk or single). It also allows for access to material supply and demand basic data and plant-related material requirements planning details.

 As part of this bundle, SAP has also included already existing enterprise services , i. e. change production planning order and change production order, which were released earlier 2006/2007, but seem a logical extension to this bundle.

Use Case 1: Check production order product availability as Bulk

In order to successfully execute the production order, the demand planner needs to get details about the available-to-promise (ATP) quantities for all materials required by the production order. This ES will carry out the ATP check for all materials required by the production orders, independently of the settings in the checking group of the respective materials.

Step

Enterprise Service Invoked

Step 1: Check availability for production order. The production order number must be provided as input.

Check Production Order Product Availability as Bulk

Step 2: Production order material and ATP quantity will be delivered to the user.

None


Use Case 2: Check production order product availability

In order to successfully execute the production order, the demand planner needs to get details about the available-to-promise (ATP) quantities for all materials required by the production order. This ES will carry out the ATP check for the individual material required by the production order.

Step

Enterprise Service Invoked

Step 1: Check availability for production order. the production order number must be provided as input.
