If you are a business that would like to automate the integration of SAP IBP and S/4 HANA, or who already are using S/4 HANA and would like to have better control over material planning and sales forecasting, this video is for you.
This video shows the automatic integration of PIR (Planned Indirect Requirements) from SAP IBP to S/4 HANA. The solution was developed to help robust IT environments that lack flexibility in loading sales forecasts from SAP IBP back to execution systems (S/4 HANA or ECC).
ArchLynk's Adaptable Supply Chain vision is to bridge the gaps between departments, technology solutions, and priorities to deliver a single source of truth, allowing you to maintain an adaptable and resilient supply chain.
Thanks to ArchLynk’s solution (powered by SAP Digital Supply Chain) which performs an automatic transfer of sales forecast (generated in SAP IBP) to the execution system (S/4 HANA) with just the click of a button, businesses gain flexibility in scheduling near-real time forecast transfers.
This custom-built solution allows administrators to update any changes made within the SAP IBP forecast to S/4 HANA in near real-time, allowing them to adapt and react quickly to any changes from the market. For instance, as the forecast increases or decreases, they will be able to adjust their production capacities and raw material planning on the go.
By automatically transferring the forecast from SAP IBP to S/4 HANA we eliminate any potential user errors that could occur if the transfer is done manually. It reduces the user workload and transfers will be scheduled, therefore we can directly link other business processes that will be dependent on the forecast transfer.
