Features & Functions of SAP SCM
Through supply chain coordination, SAP Supply Chain Management (SAP SCM) increases visibility and control, optimizes costs, and streamlines processes by enabling companies to monitor and analyze processes, both internally and externally. Features and functions include:
Supply chain event management – Companies can sense and respond to changes in plans that occur across the supply chain. Monitoring at every stage of the supply chain process provides visibility from price quotation to procurement to product delivery. Supply chain event management also distributes alerts and recommends actions when key events are missed – and produces detailed reports on supply chain status.
Supply chain performance management – Supply chain performance management measures, monitors, and displays key performance indicators (KPIs) associated with supply chain processes. It enables decision-makers to control the effectiveness of the extended supply chain proactively and to share this insight with business partners.
