Solution Capabilities

Included Capabilities

Operational Procurement

Meet demand by procuring direct material efficiently and less expensively

Adapt your supply planning to meet changing customer demand and production scheduling with operational procurement solutions from SAP. Ensure that each generation of delivery schedules reflects the current state of production planning for long-term demand, providing transparency along the supply chain. Gross demand and inventory data can be provided for supplier-managed inventory. Order acknowledgements and delivery notifications from suppliers confirm the ability to deliver, as well as status and deviations in order fulfilment. After delivery fulfilment, payment can be executed by invoice processing.

Inbound Logistics

Receive and transfer goods to production more efficiently

Improve inbound logistics by ensuring accurate, on-time delivery of goods ordered. SAP solutions enable receiving automotive companies to create inbound delivery and shipment documents based on processed messages from suppliers or freight forwarders. With SAP software, inbound shipments and deliveries are checked against the freight documents of the carrier, verified against physical packages, and inspected or stored in a warehouse until needed. For lean procurement, posted goods are routed directly to the production line for consumption. A lean replenishment with just-in-time processing enables a stock transfer to the production line, with or without warehouse management involved.
