SAP PP ( Production Planning) is an SAP module, specially designed for integrating different departments involved in production and manufacturing. Enroll in the Course from AGILE-iTECH the best training institute in Hubli.
SAP Production Planning (SAP PP) is the component of the ERP Central Component (ECC) that helps businesses plan the manufacturing, sale, and distribution of goods. A part of SAP ECC’s logistics function, SAP PP plays a vital role in a manufacturer’s supply chain and integrates with other ECC components, including Materials Management (MM), Sales and Distribution (SD), Plant Maintenance (PM), Quality Management (QM), Finance (FI), Controlling (CO) and Human Resources (HR).
SAP PP activities include material requirements planning, bill of material, routings and capacity planning. Everything in SAP PP revolves around master data that is stored and manipulated in centralized master data tables. Master data types include materials master, work center, BOM, and routing. The master data is used to create transactional data in SAP ECC, such as creating a production order in PP, a sales order in SD, or a purchase order in MM. For example, when a production order is created in SAP PP, it uses master data from SAP MM about the raw materials needed to produce the finished product, which will subsequently be used to create a sales order in SAP SD.
SAP PP sub-modules include sales and operations planning (S&OP), long-term planning (LTP), data management (DM), master production schedule/material requirements planning (MPS/MRP), capacity requirements planning (CRP), shop floor control and information systems.
