Logistics for manufacturing companies is the basis
Thinking about the automotive manufacturing industry, we attach great importance to logistics. As you know, the main advantage of implementing an ERP system, such as SAP, is gathering all the necessary information in one place, thanks to which the implementation gives authorized employees an up-to-date set of source and result data. Thus, the logistics industry affects the effective operation of the entire company and the continuous improvement of sales results.
The logistic modules include:
- SD (Sales and Distribution) and its part LE-TRA (Logistics Execution – Transportation),
- MM (Material Management),
- WM (Warehouse Management),
- PP (Production Planning).
These modules, often compared to blocks, constantly process data on manufactured goods.
From raw material to finished product
Managers of production companies pay attention to the possibility of the most accurate calculation of production costs during implementation. To find out the price of processing raw material into a finished product, it is necessary to collect detailed information on the consumption of raw materials or man-hours of each employee. SAP ERP is the best software to do so.
