Analysis of Release Performance in SAP
Analysis and visualization of deviations and fluctuations
Fluctuations in demand between delivery schedules should be neither strong nor creeping, because both represent a problem for the supplier - especially if the deviations are not detected early. A clear analysis creates transparency here - but is not offered in the SAP standard.
Analysis of release performance behavior - from the supplier and customer perspective
In practice, it often happens that a customer exceeds or falls short of the limits when calling off delivery quantities. A clear view of the call-off development is therefore central, because this allows disruptions in the supply chain processes and thus additional costs to be avoided and the company's own delivery reliability to be better assessed.
If significant violations of the tolerance limits for defined delivery call-off quantities - in terms of quantity and value or percentage - are detected immediately, production planning can be adjusted promptly and inventory can be planned at an early stage. This calms processes along the value chain. The standard SAP functions offer only insufficient possibilities for this, regardless of whether one wants to examine one's own call-off behavior or that of the customers.
The SAP modules Materials Management (MM) and Sales & Distribution (SD) offer functions that support users in managing their own flows of goods and materials. But they do not offer any analyses that examine their own call-off behavior or the call-off behavior of customers to make deviations and changes visible.
WSW Software has developed extensions for the two modules MM and SD. Directly integrable into SAP, the SPEEDIAdd-ons accurate information about the call development.
