SAP PP/DS (Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling) is a convenient solution for the creation of executable production plans
Have you ever faced difficulties in the creation of production plans? Whether it is downtime that damages the entire production cycle, a lack of unity in a supply plan, a lack of raw materials, delays in delivery, or high storage costs, all of these issues can be addressed with SAP PP/DS.
The Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling (SAP PP/DS) component is a solution that allows creating and improving production plans (short-term, medium-term, and plans associated with the release of a final product). It also ensures effective preparation of draft purchase orders and detailed planning of resource workload.
The functionality of SAP PP/DS includes:
- Various types of planning (interactive planning is aimed to quickly solve planning problems, while precise planning takes into account different planning conditions);
- Using heuristics — algorithms for solving specific planning tasks related to resources, products, and orders;
- Integration with other components of SAP APO (Advanced Planning and Optimization) and OLTP systems;
- Optimization of workload and smart use of resources with the optimization tool;
- Alert Monitor — alerts tracking and control.
