Innovations & capabilities of SAP S/4HANA Cloud for manufacturing

As a manufacturer, it is crucial that your ERP solution delivers clear and accurate data to enable you to respond quickly to changing framework conditions. Optimizing production with the help of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) can play a decisive role in boosting the efficiency of your company. When choosing an ERP solution it is important that the software can support and map your processes as a form of industry solution. SAP S/4HANA Cloud offers the following powerful features for manufacturing and supply chain:

Real-time analysis and dashboarding of production data

Efficient production is dependent on maintaining sufficient material stocks. With SAP S/4HANA Cloud you can use pre-configured dashboards and real-time analyses. With these features the ERP system enables you to detect when manufacturing problems have arisen or when workload is not optimally distributed across workplaces.

Live production planning in the ERP system

Coordinate your manufacturing processes from material requirements planning and scheduling right through to stocking. In the event of changes in suppliers or confirmed orders, the system supports efficient planning by allowing you to adapt your production plans in real time.

Support for complex assembly processes

The ERP S/4HANA Cloud can help your company to generate efficient plans for complex assembly processes covering various fields like material requirements, capacity, and production planning. The ERP system supports all business processes by integrating production workflows, machine models, parts lists, and work plans.

Exception-based working throughout the company

ERP from SAP enables you to coordinate production and material flows optimally. Methods like just-in-time supply or lean control can help you to optimize your day-to-day business in a targeted manner. By transparently mapping your production operations, the cloud version of the latest SAP ERP solution supports the digitalization of your manufacturing.

Efficient, global cooperation

For large companies with numerous factories, it is particularly important that their ERP system supports international processes. But even in small companies, many departments like research & development are linked to production. That is why SAP S/4HANA Cloud offers targeted analysis for various business units that can be retrieved regardless of location. SAP ERP connects easily to other software solutions – for instance, CRM systems like SAP CX. With the ERP system as a “single source of truth”, your entire company can always rely on up-to-date information.
