SAP PP Functionalities

  • Every company is unique, just like its manufacturing processes and production types.
  • SAP can accommodate various production types including mass, type, and series production, as well as make-to-order and project production.
  • It also offers comprehensive functionalities for the process industry.
  • The choice of production type influences your production logistics.
  • The most common production types are discrete manufacturing, process manufacturing, and repetitive manufacturing.
  • Along with selecting the right production type, identifying and applying one or more demand strategies to your products is crucial.
  • A planning strategy is primarily used to schedule your production quantities and dates.
  • SAP provides preset demand strategies in the standard system, including make-to-stock production and planning with or without final assembly.
  • If standard options do not meet your needs, custom demand strategies can be implemented.
  • The foundation of a reliable and resilient production plan is rooted in accurate master data such as materials, bills of materials, work centers, routings/recipes, or line designs for repetitive manufacturing.
  • For medium and long-term production planning, forecasts are also incorporated.
  • SAP Integrated Business Planning aids in planning and determining future requirements.
  • Production Planning creates planned orders based on the receipt elements you choose to include.
  • To generate planned orders in the correct quantities, you can specify economic, minimum, or maximum lot sizes in the material master.
  • The MRP run is essential for your Material Requirements Planning (MRP) in SAP, with the MRP list alerting controllers to procurement bottlenecks through exception messages.

  • With the CONSILIO Logistics Alert Cockpit (LAC), you can display exception messages across multiple plants and MRP controllers with clarity and transparency that the standard SAP system doesn't offer.
  • Once an exception message is addressed, the dispatcher can set a permanent processing status in the LAC, enhancing transparency by adding comments on how the message was handled.
  • Edited messages are removed from the LAC overview unless specifically included through the selection mask.
  • The cockpit is customizable to meet specific needs, such as adjusting procedures through changes in prioritization.
  • The LAC offers more exception messages than the standard SAP system and presents them flexibly to the respective dispatcher.
  • It supports both English and German, and allows the creation and inclusion of custom exception messages.
