SAP PP, which stands for SAP Production Planning, is a module within the SAP ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system that helps businesses manage and optimize their production processes. It provides tools for planning, executing, and controlling manufacturing activities, enabling companies to streamline their production operations and meet customer demand efficiently. SAP PP helps businesses optimize their production processes by providing end-to-end visibility, control, and automation, ultimately driving efficiency, productivity, and customer satisfaction.

How SAP PP works:

  1. Master Data Management: SAP PP relies on various master data objects such as materials, bills of materials (BOM), work centers, routings, and production versions. These master data elements serve as the foundation for production planning and execution processes.

  2. Demand Management: SAP PP enables businesses to forecast demand for their products based on historical data, sales orders, and other relevant factors. Demand forecasts can be used to create production plans and schedules to meet customer requirements.

  3. Production Planning: Using SAP PP, companies can create production plans that specify what products to produce, in what quantities, and when. Production planning involves determining the optimal mix of resources (materials, manpower, machines) to achieve production targets while minimizing costs and maximizing efficiency.

  4. Material Requirement Planning (MRP): SAP PP includes MRP functionality to ensure that materials are available when needed for production. MRP calculates the requirements for raw materials, components, and assemblies based on the production plan, existing inventory levels, lead times, and other parameters.

  5. Capacity Planning: SAP PP allows businesses to manage and optimize production capacity by balancing workloads across different work centers and production resources. Capacity planning helps ensure that production schedules are realistic and feasible based on available resources and constraints.

  6. Production Execution: Once production orders or planned orders are generated, SAP PP facilitates the execution of production processes. This may involve issuing materials to the shop floor, scheduling production activities, monitoring progress, recording production data, and tracking work-in-progress.

  7. Shop Floor Control: SAP PP provides tools for shop floor control, including the ability to manage shop orders, track work orders, report production progress, handle production deviations, and maintain real-time visibility into production operations.

  8. Quality Management Integration: SAP PP integrates with SAP Quality Management (QM) module to ensure that quality standards are maintained throughout the production process. Quality checks and inspections can be incorporated into production workflows to prevent defects and ensure product quality.

  9. Reporting and Analytics: SAP PP offers reporting and analytics capabilities to analyze production performance, monitor key performance indicators (KPIs), identify bottlenecks, and make data-driven decisions for continuous improvement.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
