SAP - Manufacturing Software


 

SAP is a market leader in enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. The company was founded in 1972 and has since grown into a leader in providing software solutions for over 100,000 business users worldwide.

SAP Manufacturing is an enterprise-class software solution that enables users to integrate their manufacturing operations, ensure supplier/partner coordination is possible, increase visibility throughout the manufacturing processes, and businesses can execute on extremely high levels.

SAP Manufacturing offers MRP, manufacturing execution, financials, product lifecycle management, SCM, supplier and asset management, HR, customer management, and BI functionality on a best-of-breed basis. These solutions can be integrated or purchased as stand-alone systems to meet the specific needs of users.

What we like about SAP Manufacturing is the integration possibilities with SAP’s other enterprise solutions. And SAP doesn’t just support users with software solutions for all industries, but their global support team can provide assistance to business users wherever they are in the world. This is a great system for users that need assistance optimizing all of their manufacturing processes, or perhaps just their supply chain management or their lean planning operations.

We currently recommend this system for users in any industry. SAP offers their Manufacturing product as both an on-premise and a Cloud-based solution.

Pros

Full set of features. I really like how robust and powerful it is. When set up correctly, there's usually never an outage

Cons

Interface and GUI is lacking. It's hard to navigate and it feels outdated. Modernizing the interface will help a lot with selling this to potential customers

This tool is powerful and has a lot of features. It integrates well into other products.

Likes Least

This product is not very user-friendly. There is a huge learning curve and overall it feels like it could be updated to appeal to a tougher user base.

Recommendations

Take functionality as well as user-friendliness into consideration. It's important for a powerful tool to be easy to use as well.

I find it to be a little slow at times and wish it could be a bit more faster. There seem to be pauses in the software.

Recommendations

Overall, I think its great. I would recommend on improving upon the pauses the system has because it hinders the ability to enter info quickly at times.

Sometimes, it's hard to find exactly what you need in a sea of options and tcodes. It would help tremendously to have a good search and help function.

Recommendations

Plan your deployment carefully, and try to fix as many of your existing problems as possible before switching. All problems will be exposed in SAP, and you will need to fix all to be successful.
