Increasing planning reliability through integrated and holistic production planning
The new system should therefore ensure holistic, integrated and realistic production planning, which also takes into account material and capacity availability as well as possible breakdowns.
The planning tool integrated in SAP includes all relevant planning aspects that are necessary for successful production. Especially short-term planning changes are easy to implement and the resulting effects on the overall planning are immediately displayed.
There is no need to switch transactions or manually refresh them. This flexibility enables efficient and accurate planning even in a turbulent market situation.
In addition, conOS was to be used before the introduction of SAP ME and EWM, which meant a temporary integration with the previous ERP system. This was an in-house development for which there was limited documentation.
As a central planning system, conOS is also fully integrated into the SAP ERP landscape and, together with SAP ME and EWM, offers end-to-end digitalisation of all planning processes.
It is used in both planning control and production and enables the teams to be more agile in the event of order changes.
