Configurable materials with SAP S/4 HANA
Improved process of order-related calculation
With the ERP changeover from SAP ERP to SAP S/4 HANA, the valid field length of the material number was extended to 40 digits. Due to this small technical change, our procedure for order-related costing could no longer be used.
This prompted us to rethink the process of order-related costing in general, and so we were able to find both a solution to make this possible with SAP S/4 HANA and to improve the process for all customers.
Make-to-order production, variants and batches possible due to configurable materials
When analyzing this process, we found that we need to support both materials that are sold more than once as a variant or batch of a material and also those that are only produced once for a specific order. Thus, a reference to a material can now be transferred to GENESYS, along with an indicator showing whether this material is only produced once.
Automated generation of supplier declarations depending on the material indicator
Until now, a long-term supplier’s declaration (LLE) was issued for all materials for deliveries within the European Union, depending on the settings in the customer. However, for materials that are only manufactured once and shipped with this order, an individual declaration (LE) for the order or delivery is enough. Therefore, an individual declaration (LE) is automatically created for materials for which the indicator is set.
Order-related calculations can now be implemented more easily and professionally for future projects.
