SAP MPS: Manufacturing for Planning and Scheduling (SAP S/4HANA)

SAP MPS: Transparent production planning with SAP S/4HANA

Due to increased complexity in supply chains creating a finite schedule is becoming ever more of a challenge. Classic MRP calculations do not take into account many of the constraints that apply in procurement and production.

Planners also often have difficulties to simulate the impact of changes in the production schedule on existing sales orders. SAP S/4HANA Manufacturing for Planning and Scheduling (also known as PP/DS) closes this gap and provides advanced tools for both rough-cut planning and detailed scheduling. 

Functions

Rough-Cut Planning
Create a fully integrated production and procurement plan for the mid-term horizon and gain an overview of potential capacity overloads and material availability issues
Detailed Scheduling
Create a finite schedule on bottleneck resources considering material availability. Utilize industry-specific functions like block or campaign planning to further optimize and stabilize your production schedule
Synchronized Planning
Integrate your rough-cut plan from SAP IBP and hand it over to MPS to create a finite production plan. These results will be integrated back to IBP and are used to confirm sales orders or for the detailed planning of stock transfers
