SAP S/4HANA 2021 Manufacturing for production engineering and operations – Modular deployment side-by-side to ERP
Dear Digital Supply Chain Manufacturing Community,
As our team further enhances and expands our Digital Manufacturing SAP S/4HANA product portfolio in support of Intelligent Factory, we are excited to announce a modular deployment option with SAP Digital Supply Chain, Edition for SAP S/4HANA Manufacturing for production engineering and operations. It provides a simplified, step-by-step entry point to the broader enterprise transformation offered through SAP S/4HANA and is suitable for new SAP customers, as well as those currently using SAP ECC or SAP S/4HANA.
SAP S/4HANA Manufacturing for production engineering and operations combines manufacturing engineering and extended production operations for complex, highly engineered discrete products into a single, powerful, intuitive user experience across production planning and operational business processes. This SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management core extension facilitates a seamless digital thread from engineering through production execution.
One of the recent innovation highlights was the delivery of the SAP Digital Supply Chain, Edition for SAP S/4HANA Manufacturing for production engineering and operations , which offers SAP S/4HANA but also using SAP ECC customers access to advanced production engineering and operation capabilities as a side-by-side setup. This includes the integration of master and transactional data to orchestrate the end-to-end process.
With this modular deployment option, you can implement essential capabilities to innovate your manufacturing processes faster and realize long-term sustained benefits as follows:
- Greater flexibility and resilience to take the transformation journey to SAP S/4HANA in incremental steps
- Adapt new innovations with a shorter timeline than an enterprise-wide SAP S/4HANA transformation
- Better bandwidth, latency, and system availability by installing SAP S/4HANA Manufacturing for production engineering and operations close to the shop floor
- Exclusive Manufacturing system with manufacturing’s own business configuration.
We are excited to support you on your journey. For more detailed information, check out Integration details and configuration guides in SAP Note 3096043 and Implementation guide.
