Course announcements

  • This course provides an in-depth functional overview of the SAP S/4HANA Manufacturing for Production Engineering and Operations (PEO) solution. PEO bridges the gap between product engineering and production operations by converting the product design into a production process design to serve as the basis for production order management and shop floor execution. Course participants will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to configure the engineering and production data that is required to build a product, control the product lifecycle, track changes, and analyze the impact of those changes.
  • During the course participants will use Visual Enterprise Planner (VEMP) to convert the design driven EBOM structure into a manufacturing, built-sequence driven MBOM structure. They will use the Manufacturing Change Records to orchestrate the whole production engineering process and keep track of all changes made to manufacturing objects. Finally, they will create version-controlled shop floor routings to define information needed for production planning, production costing, and shop floor execution.
  • Participants will run the production execution process using responsive, role-specific and self-adjusting UIs to enable production operators to track serialized parts, collect product and process information, and interactively work with 3D models. This will result in the ability to identify required components and trigger change alerts that will provide just in time alerts to recent changes in the production process or product structures.
