Holistic control of your supply chain with SAP SCM
Supply Chain Management
Integrate your business activities along the entire value chain

Customer-oriented digital Supply Chain Management

Customers expect maximum transparency, short production and delivery times, and low costs. To meet these requirements, companies have to link all the processes and manage them holistically.

What is Supply Chain Management?

Supply Chain Management (SCM) is used to integrate all your business activities – from sales and material requirements planning, to production planning and shipping to customers – into a single seamless process. So supply chain management refers to the entire value creation process and a company’s holistic supply chain, with the aim of providing the end consumer with products, goods or services in the best possible way. Logistics is a component of the entire supply chain. Furthermore, the relationship with suppliers plays a key role when considering SCM.
The figure illustrates digital supply chain management – from planning, to the customer – throughout the entire value chain.

Digital supply chain management throughout the entire value chain

Well-organized supply chains and efficient logistics processes contribute considerably to a company’s success. This forms the foundation of transparency and consistency in your supply chain. Dynamically integrating all the activities allows you to take action in a way that is more agile and, in particular, customer-oriented.

Why is Supply Chain Management so important?

Due to increasing digitalization and competition becoming ever fiercer, remaining sustainably competitive is a matter of growing relevance for individual companies. In addition to short production and delivery times, customers also expect transparency and affordable products.

Companies are thus required to create a transparent network throughout the entire value chain, to plan internal processes and to manage them efficiently. Good value for money also plays an important role and should always be the focus. You can achieve all of this through integrated Supply Chain Management.

SCM systems optimally support supply chain managers and business units along the value chain using software and technology.

Supply Chain Management with SAP (SAP SCM)

SAP SCM efficiently helps you to optimize and manage your supply chain.

The SAP system is split into three modules: Planning, Execution and Coordination.

  • SAP SCM Planning stands for supply chain planning through forecasting and inventory controlling.
  • SAP SCM Execution deals with implementing and controlling processes in line with the prior planning operations.
  • SAP SCM Coordination tracks and evaluates the processes.

Our consulting operations focus on planning and execution with SAP. You will find more information, definitions and related modules under “Supply Chain Planning”.
