Innovations in Production Planning with S/4

10/09/2018 MHPDeepDive

From daily batch planning and manual control to real-time planning

The constantly advancing digitalization in our working world provides numerous opportunities for optimizing the planning of the supply chain. Through the use of real-time data, it is possible to further specify the details of planning models in order to be able to portray reality even better. This provides in particular opportunities to further improve planning in the near future, and thus to significantly increase the capability to respond to unplanned events. In our MHPDeepDive, we will show you the changes production planning is currently undergoing, and what opportunities, but also challenges, these changes are leading to. In addition, we will highlight approaches for developing initial steps toward real-time planning.

This MHPDeepDive will be concerned with the following themes, among others:

  • The change of production planning in the near future from a rigid and manual planning concept to flexible and automated planning
  • Challenges to master data, processes, IT & humans resulting from digitalization and automation
  • "The path to real-time planning" | Our procedure for meeting the challenges
  • Current functions and limits of S/4HANA for automated real-time planning in the near future
  • Outlook: AI-based production planning
