Product Description and Table of Contents

• Find in-depth information on discrete, process, and repetitive manufacturing types
• Work with detailed configuration steps and the business processes to tie everything together
• Understand the tools you need to optimize your PP processes and how to use them

Cars. Ice cream. Paint. With this book, you’ll understand how to manage products of varying complexity with the main production planning types. Learn how to set up the discrete, process, and repetitive manufacturing production types in your SAP ERP system, and then explore a variety of planning methods, optimizing tools, integration options, and more that will help you meet any business requirement.

Configuration Basics
Learn what discrete, process, and repetitive manufacturing are, and set them up in your SAP ERP system.

Production Type Workflow
After configuration, understand how to tweak your system to meet your specific business processes and discover which production type works best for your needs.

Workflow Tools
Get to know the tools that SAP provides to help manage your planning for demand, sales and operations, material requirements, and more.

  4. Best PP Module Book

    Posted by Keiji on Dec 27th, 2013

    The book covers most of the important feature of SAP PP Module.

    Although I have worked as PP consultant for several years, the book still provides me a lot of valuable information. Especially the content for PP-PI and REM that are not covered in other SAP books are also well described.
