A session at Supply Chain Optimization

Thursday 8th December, 2016

Business rules are the cornerstone of managing demand and supply effectively, so it’s no surprise that exceptions between business rules and behavior are a leading cause of poor service and fulfillment performance. This session provides proven methods to better align planning, purchasing, inventory, and warehouse management with production for faster throughput and on-time delivery. Attend to:
•Learn the best ways to align inventory quantities with lead times and service levels
•Find out how to use the exception monitor to determine whether an excess or shortage of raw materials is being routed to the shop floor
•Hear how other SAP customers have established purchasing and inventory policies that ensure their production department gets the raw materials it needs to optimize uptime
•Learn how to create “what-if” scenarios within core SAP systems to help you make better production decisions, automate lot sizes and lead times, and optimize inventory and service activities
•Get best practices to integrate materials management (MM) and production planning (PP) activities
•Explore the relationship between the standard MM and PP functionality running on your ERP system and the SAP functionality for production planning and detailed schedule that runs on SAP APO
•Get expert tips to align exception monitoring activities with service-level targets
•Learn how to integrate raw material planning, sales, and production capacity so that everyone is working for a common and understood outcome
