Our integrated solution helps you design, set up, and execute flexible warehouse and manufacturing processes, and gain maximum insight into your business.

Product Development

Accelerate time-to-market, and ensure consistency between customer requirements and product design. SAP Business ByDesign can help you adapt designs for production – and use specified product requirements as the basis for lean, make-to-order product development.

  • Create product designs and import them directly into your engineering system
  • Automatically generate bills of materials (BOM) from product designs
  • Handle product variants more efficiently across engineering, manufacturing, and sales

Supply Chain Setup Management

Rely on SAP Business ByDesign for supply chain modeling – for a clear view of your customer distribution networks as well as an internal view of your production and warehouse layouts. Create the required master data and achieve business process transparency between planning and execution.

  • Manage material flows within your warehouse and manufacturing locations as an integrated process
  • Define production, warehouse processes, and operations according to your business requirements
  • Use scalable production models for transparency

Supply Chain Planning and Control

Manage your supply and demand planning more effectively, while controlling material flows. You can use an exception-driven approach to plan and consolidate your procurement requirements, create production plans, and determine delivery dates. SAP Business ByDesign makes it easy to define and maintain control over individual customer requirements and product variants.

  • Monitor product availability and confirm delivery dates by checking requirements against stock
  • Manage your resource capacity to meet production demand
  • Identify problems early for quick resolution with minimal disruption
  • Specify processes for drop shipment and stock transfers to minimize storage and transport costs

Manufacturing, Warehouse, and Logistics

Produce the high quality products your customers require, while maximizing your manufacturing and logistics efficiency. SAP Business ByDesign makes it easy to manage production, deliveries and returns, physical inventory, and stock transfers. It also posts supply execution data – such as work in process and finished goods inventory – to the general ledger.

  • Improve tracking and tracing procedures by using identified stock and labeling
  • Ensure product quality by integrating quality assurance with production
  • Automate processes for inbound and outbound logistics as well as production
  • Take advantage of bar-code or RF readers, mobile devices, and electronic instructions
