Consistent production plan through detailed production planning with SAP

SAP SCM – Production Planning

Unrealistic depictions of production dates and the capacity situation complicate your production planning? Create and maintain a feasible production plan with little effort using SAP Production Planning. It enables optimized resource utilization and in which stocks, capacities, dates, and setup times are viewed simultaneously and in multiple levels.

SAP enables detailed production planning in two ways. In SAP SCM/APO, detailed production planning is provided by the PP/DS (Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling) module. This module is already integrated in SAP S/4HANA as "Advanced Planning". In both cases, the detailed planning is interlocked with the remaining ERP functions and data bidirectionally and in real time, thus enabling automated, feasible and residue-free detailed production planning. To complete the solution space for simpler requirements and, for example, for single-stage production processes, ORBIS also offers a flexibly adaptable and cost-effective solution with the ORBIS planning tool add-on, which can be seamlessly integrated into SAP R/3 or SAP S/4HANA.

Reduced inventory costs in your production

Transform your customer and planned independent requirements into a feasible and multilevel consistent production plan. By jointly considering capacities and material availability, you can quickly adapt your plans to changing situations while ensuring feasibility. SAP APO-PD/DS and Advanced Planning thus cover the two central tasks of detailed production planning: the creation of feasible production plans in the short term and the maintenance of timeliness and feasibility through automated change planning. In addition, a multi-level consistent plan without fixed collective orders is feasible through the dynamic linking of operations and orders on all disposition levels.

Easy system integration through ORBIS
