Quality Management (QM)

This component is being maximized to ensure and improve on the quality of your company’s products. This comprises the planning and execution of quality inspections of purchased and finished products.

Plant Maintenance (PM)

This component is used to uphold the equipment that is used in the production of your company’s finished products. This focuses on the planning and execution of preventive maintenance on equipment and tools used in the production process.

Production Planning (PP)

This component handles the production process. This includes capacity planning on production, master production scheduling (MPS), material requirements planning (MRP) and the shop floor functions of producing a company’s finished products.

Customer Service (CS)

This component manages the service that your company provides to your customers including repairs and warranties. Items could be sent back for restoration or have one of your representatives visit the facility. If your company produces products that are being sold with warranties, SAP can help you to service and repair those items with supreme efficiency.

Warehouse Management (WM)

This component helps companies to precisely run inventory and maximize storage capacity. This can help you maximize your time by guiding you where to place and remove items from your warehouse and suggest the most efficient location to store a material and the most efficient way to place and remove that material from the warehouse.

There are additional functionalities that integrate with the Logistics area, such as Transportation Management, Batch Management, Handling Unit Management, Logistics Information System (LIS), Variant Configuration, Engineering Change Management, Project Systems (PS) and Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS).

Depending on what a company requires, these can be necessary in the logistics area. After all, an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system should be able to help companies elevate its supply chain.
