🎯 SAP S/4 Hana 2023: New Fiori APP’s in Manufacturing

The below are the list of New apps that have been released in SAP S/4 Hana 2023 in the Manufacturing LOB

Historical Buffer Performance  –

is a new app using which you can view the historical data for your buffer stock related to the time-dependent buffer level charts within a specified time period (for example, last month). The visualization and analytical capabilities helps the production planner to gain an insight into the historical buffer performance for a material.

Manage Material Coverage(F0251A)

With this app, you can display and analyze coverage issues that exist for selected materials. For each material that you select, you can display a stock / requirements list including material shortage information, which helps you determine shortages that can cause disruptions to production or to the fulfillment of customer demands. You can also take actions directly from the app, for example, start an MRP run or edit MRP elements to resolve coverage issues

Evaluate Capacity is a new app using which you can better visualize capacity situation of work centers within a plant. You can group work centers based on work center group and visualize the utilization on the group level. The visualization and analytical capabilities helps in understanding and managing the impact of capacity situation.

My Area of Responsibility – Work Center Person Responsible

With this new app, you can define your area of responsibility by selecting the respective combinations of plant and work center person responsible. In the Mass maintenance of work center capacities app, only those work center capacities are displayed in the worklist that fulfill your selection criteria.

Advance Variant Configuration(AVC) & VCH_HL_AFL_CHECK

⚡Advance Variant Configuration(AVC) &VCH_HL_AFL_CHECK⚡

🎯  As we know the AVC has to be installed after the S4 Hana has been installed. This can be part of your upgrade or even for new installation

🎯 It is always important to evaluate if all the Technical Pre-Requisites are completed correctly

🎯 This is completely as Technical task for validation but still it is good for the Functional consultants also to be aware of this Pre-Requisites.

🎯 SAP has provided a standard report -VCH_HL_AFL_CHECK which will help you to execute and confirm the same.

🎯 There are parameters which are more technical but the important part is you should be getting a  message -“Procedure Called Successfully” in Green Highlighted color. This confirms that the technical pre-requisites are installed correctly.

Sales order Creation with Variant Configuration

The creation of sales order with variant configuration characteristics will be a little tricky one.
we have to use the below  Function module(FM) –
For Creation : SD_SALESDOCUMENT_CREATE
For Changes: SD_SALESDOCUMENT_CHANGE
 
one of the advantage of using this FM is that this will support all document types like Sales order, Scheduling agreements, Customer independent Requirements.

In the following section we will see the usage of this FM to create a simple Customer Independent requirement (MD81) with the variant configuration values passed on to the same.The below are the fM structure you need to work with

 

ORDER_HEADER_IN
ORDER_ITEMS_IN

SAP Data Migration CockPit

What is SAP DMC ?

SAP DMC  Stands for the SAP Data Migration Cockpit. SAP is Sunsetting the support of LSMW and other upload tools in the Hana Envirornment.

Earlier the Data migration was done using the LTMC. SAP offered the features of migrating or uploading the data for the S4 hana system with the predefined objects like Materail master, BOM , Routing etc.

It has options to Upload the data using files or staging tables this was available in the S4 Hana version 1909.

But From S4 Hana (OP) 2020, it is strongly bringing the SAP DMC is the only source ( Same as LTMC) but the addittional feature here is  we can directly connect the ECC system to S4 Hana system through this SAP DMC and perform the required data migration.

This also provides features to do the Mapping ( Transformation) in case if there is any changes in the master data, etc if the costcenter is changed then we can provide the source vs target and which help to create the new cost center in the S4 Hana system.

The intent of this post is to bring awareness on this tool and further topics will be detailed in the subsequent Posts.
