Counsel: Consider Unit of Measure and Currency Conversions at start of IBP Implementation
In my book, “SAP Integrated Business Planning: How Does SAP IBP Fit into SCM Processes?” ( https://www.sap-press.com/sap-integrated-business-planning-how-does-sap-ibp-fit-into-scm-processes_4174/ ) I talk frequently about considerations when beginning an IBP Implementation that will save time and cost over time. But as quickly as IBP is evolving and gaining marketplace acceptance, there will be content that was not in the book. I’ll post here from time to time.
