Further to my previous blog on S/4 HANA for Automotive

This blog provide a further an update in S/4 HANA 1511 release for Automotive & list of simplification for Automotive.

1. Tracking Inbound deliveries :

               The automotive industry solution for tracking of inbound deliveries and shipments is not available with SAP S/4HANA. To calculate the exact time of arrival of goods SAP event management solution can be used by receiving EDI message, expected time of arrival can be calculated based on the duration information stored with the routine of scheduling.

Thus automotive industry solution for tracking of inbound deliveries and shipments is not be available with SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511, as with SAP Event Management, a much more comprehensive and scalable solution exists.

Refer SAP note: 2228139

2. Supplier Workplace :

               The Supplier Workplace (SWP) is an E-commerce platform enabling suppliers to access data from the SAP ERP system of a company in addition or as an alternative to EDI communication. With SWP, the supplier could display purchasing documents and price information, view and confirm scheduling

agreement releases, create, change or display inbound deliveries, view goods receipt and settlement information.

This SWP is not available with SAP S/4HANA on-premise edition 1511, as with SAP Supply Network Collaboration (SNC) or Ariba Procurement / Ariba Network, there are successors available.
