How SAP S/4HANA is transforming Constraint Based Production Planning ?

SAP S/4HANA is one of the most deployed post-modern ERPs. Whilst the ERP of the 20th century concentrated on the digitization of business processes, the post-modern ERP focuses on the digital transformation of the business process. In this blog, I will talk on how SAP S/4HANA transforms Constraint-Based Production Planning.

What functionality does SAP S/4HANA provide for Constraint-Based Production Planning?

  • Shorten lead times and reduce costs with constraint-based production planning using SAP S/4HANA
  • Maintain quality products and decrease costs by reacting quickly to changes on the plant floor

What are the benefits of using S/4HANA to manage Constraint-Based Production Planning?

  •  Increase speed and responsiveness of production planning by linking advanced planning processes to manufacturing execution
  • Improve customer service by enhancing visibility into manufacturing capacity and responding quickly to new demand

What are the functional changes in the Constraint-Based Production Planning functionality in SAP S/4HANA compared to SAP ECC?

  •  Introduction of advanced production and capacity planning directly into SAP S/4HANA, capabilities that were available only in the SAP Advanced Planning and Optimization (SAP APO) component

What are the innovations which S/4HANA has brought in for Constraint-Based Production Planning functionality?

  • Integration of SAP liveCache technology in SAP HANA database
  • Core interface (CIF) simplification
  • Data harmonization
  • Extension of material number to 40 characters
  • SAP Fiori–based user experience across all process steps
  • Role with new, dedicated SAP Fiori apps: —
    • Production Planner

Recently, Kaar Tech helped a high tech manufacturer to migrate from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA. If you would like to understand why they moved from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA, then I suggest reading this whitepaper. It explains the business benefits and technical benefits accrued as a result of the SAP S/4HANA migration.
