SAP S/4Hana Simple Logistics
SAP Simple Logistics is the latest version of MM, SD and PP combined. It consists of all the key modules under SAP ERP Business Suite – Material Management, Supply Chain, Demand Planning, Sourcing and Procurement, Contract Management, and Manufacturing.
SAP S/4HANA Simple Logistics supports methods of standard pricing, varying average prices, and material valuation. In this case, one will have a clear separation of master data and transactional data. Also, it includes only four tables instead of having multiple tables. You can observe the same in the below image, how SAP ERP Business Suite includes multiple tables and how it is reduced in SAP S/4HANA. This reduces memory and data footprints.
Following business processes can be managed using SAP S/4 HANA Enterprise Management with improved performance and efficiency for all these processes −
Inventory Management − SAP S/4 HANA Enterprise Management provides a simplified data model resulting in increased throughput and flexible analytics at the most granular level.
Procurement − With SAP S/4 HANA Enterprise Management, you can achieve increased efficiency in the Procure-To-Pay processes, new Analytical Apps and Spend KPIs, Ariba Network Integration for PO Order and IV.
Material Requirements Planning − You can perform fast MRP run, and a new working model for MRP controllers based on decision support.
Order Management & Billing − Using S/4 HANA Enterprise Management, you can perform end-to-end order-to-cash process.
Simple logistics simplies a lots of complex older tables into simpler ones to ensure speed upgrade. In SAP ERP Business Suite, reporting was only based on material ledger tables, i.e., the material ledger contains only the material related data and not any other information like financial dimensions. Whereas, SAP S/4HANA data model includes both material and financial information.
Logistics is mainly used to store the product and customer data of an organization. Managing of customer relationship, from raising a quotation to sales order, and billing of any products or services form the basis of order management and billing.
Using S/4HANA Enterprise Management, one can perform end-to-end order-to-cash processes and can take any necessary actions to resolve the exceptions. One can also gather information to resolve the issues and lower the total cost of ownership. This data model supports the recent business versions like FSCM Credit Management, GTS Foreign Trade, etc.
