SAP PP MODULE FEATURES & FUNCTIONALITIES

Here are the important functionalities & features covered by production planning module.

  • Material Requirement Planning (MRP)
  • Billing of Material (BOM)
  • Routings
  • Capacity Planning
  • Master production scheduling
  • Shop floor

MASTER DATA IN SAP PP

It is the core data in PP module. Without these PP master data we cannot do & store any transactions. In other words it’s the mandatory data in production planning.

  • Routing
  • Work Center
  • Material Master
  • Product Version
  • Bill of Material

SAP PP PROCESS FLOW

After all the master data like material master, BOM, Work Center & route creation, see the flow of process occurring in production planning module.

  • Planning Independent Requirement
  • MPS / MRP Running
  • Production Planning
  • Receive Raw materials
  • Production Confirmation
  • Production order close & settled

PP MODULE DATA IS INTEGRATED WITH FOLLOWING MODULES

Production planning module data is tightly integrated with the following list of module data .
