Capacity planning with hard and soft restrictions
SAP S/4HANA Manufacturing with active Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling (PP/DS) enables companies to execute the complete process, from production planning to implementation, in just one system.
The MRP live functionalities with automatically-generated solution proposals in case of shortages and an innovative graphic planning board with a Fiori design also minimize the manual planning work. With its optimization procedure, the expansion PP/DS ensure improved resource efficiency thanks to the use of real-time analyses with the so-called scenario technique.
Use of material and capacity restrictions in the planning process
Use of what-if scenarios in simulation versions
Use of heuristics and optimization processes to increase resource efficiency
