Benefits of SAP Simple Logistics | SAP S/4HANA Simple Logistics Overview

Over the past few quarters, the market has seen huge increases in the number of S/4HANA implementations globally, whether they are for the S/4HANA general suite, or more specifically SAP Simple Finance or S/4HANA Finance. But what’s going on with S/4HANA Enterprise Management, also known as Simple Logistics? Are we seeing any movement there?
In the same way that SAP S/4HANA Finance is the next step for SAP FI/CO systems, S/4HANA Enterprise Management is the next phase for the ECC6.0 traditional logistics modules, for example SD, MM, PP etc. Rather than being module-focused, Enterprise Management is process-focused, looking instead at Order to Cash, Procure to Pay, Plan to Produce and Request to Service. The system runs on a HANA database, allowing for much faster insights, as all the data is coming from a single source of truth. As with the whole S/4HANA suite, it runs across all devices using SAP Fiori, (Learn SAP FIORI from SAP Trainings Online) so the user experience is dramatically improved and mobility is increased.

In SAP S/4 HANA, there is a change in relationship between Bills of Material, Routings, and Production Version. You can combine Bills of Material and routing into one entity and hence it streamlines their vision process. In SAP ERP Business Suite, product master material number field length is 18, which has been increased to 40 characters.

Similarly to S/4HANA Finance (which first started being a buzzword around Q2 2015), it will take a bit of time before everyone decides that they need to move their existing systems to SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management. Options need to be assessed, customers need to be convinced that it is the best option for them and it is worth the cost of the project. As with Simple Finance, we are expecting to see that in the months after the product is released, there will be a significant increase in the number of ongoing projects and customers carrying out these implementations. With SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management already being 3 or 4 months old, it’s only a matter of time before we start seeing projects popping up left, right and centre.
