We helped one of our clients to develop a specific planning cockpit tool to extend SAP APO’ s functionalities and allow for multiple data aggregation levels. ZEPLAN is a customized solution that enables users to visualize and analyze data according to different aggregation level (such as Plant, Sales organization, Product hierarchy, Local family) to support tactical and operative planning processes. The result is that both reporting and interactive planning activities are simplified, enabling users to choose the aggregation level that best meets their needs, and to adjust their plan accordingly.
In order to provide our client with a complete overview of their receipts and requirement allocation, we helped them developing ZMD04. This tool reports all the allocations for a specific reference dataset selected by users, enabling them to filter it by attributes of the material or of the transactional data. The result is a table that displays all the allocation for the selected dataset, and enables users to easily identify free receipt elements, pegged receipts, and in shortage requirements, and to monitor their progress.
