Company SAP has announced the release SAP BestPractices for Chemicals V 1.470 on CEBIT 2004. The idea of BestPractices is to provide templates for a specific industry sector to mid-size industry customers that enable them to rapidly implement the ERP system SAP R/3.
SAP BestPractices for Chemicals V 1.470 contains a plug-in that enables the connection of an Advanced Planning Board for SAP R/3 of the SAP SCM Partner "OR Soft Jänicke GmbH" to the R/3 system. For this purpose SAP delivers a building block for the plug-in with installation and configuration guide as well as a description of the business procedures for the advanced planning board as part of the SAP BestPractices for Chemicals package. OR Soft delivers a CD with a preconfigured demo solution of the Advanced Planning Board for SAP R/3, a program for analysing a production model and a setup program. You can explore the functions of the Advanced Planning Board for SAP R/3 using the tools provided on this CD and the demonstration data provided as part of the SAP BestPractices for Chemicals package. You can setup and configure the Advanced Planning Board for SAP R/3 for use with your own operational data as a SAP GUI extension after obtaining a license key from OR Soft.
