What is SAP PP Module

What is SAP PP Module ?

Manufacturing in any company has at its disposal various resources. The nature and the constraints of these resources are determined by some strategic decisions. The day-to-day running of manufacturing rests with Production Planning and Control (PP&C) The purpose of PP&C is to ensure that manufacturing runs effectively and efficiently and produces products as required by customers.

SAP R/3 has a highly integrated Production Planning System. The PP module is divided into two Sub-modules, 'PP-PI' and 'Production General'. PP-PI sub-module is designed for process industries like Oil and Gas.

The Production Planning module of SAP takes care of Master data needed like Bill Of Materials, Routings and Work Centers and stores it in one separate component.

Various stages of the planning system can be planned by using components like

Sales and Operation Planning
Long Term Planning
Demand Management
Materials Requirement Planning

SAP R/3 PP module can also plan Capacity. The capacity Planning sub-module takes into account various capacities like pooled capacity etc.

Production Orders reporting has flexibility of confirming orders with or without backflush. The material can be staged to production site from the Warehouse after releasing the order. Costing can be triggered automatically by integrating the module with the Cost Accounting Module.

Integration with other modules like Material management, Financial Accounting, Cost Accounting, Human Resources & Development, Sales and Distribution etc adds on to reliability of the production planning system in SAP R/3. The system is a real time system. The changes in demand (cancelled or added sales order etc) and supply (high/low rejection, early/late supply from supplier, breakdown of facilities etc) are reflected in real time and the production controller can react fast to these changes.

SAP R/3 PP module is a very effective tool for production planning. As it gives many alternatives, it must be configured correctly to reach optimum utilization.

Best practice production planning is critical to supply chain management. SAP PP can be utilized successfully if key tools and reports are leveraged.

All the sap consultants who are working in SD, ABAP, CRM functional & Technical definitely need to know and learn Middleware. Understanding the replication from CRM to R/3 back-end system and the different loads (initial & delta loads) and middleware connections and request load for objects will be very useful for them. Only one faculty RamCharan sir at hyderabad is explaining and teaching middleware course both classroom and online. visit http://rcstudentclub.wordpress.com/ and get details like course curriculum, duration etc. Make the most out of this excellent opportunity. Good luck
