Details & sample screens

Fully embedded in S/4HANA Advanced Planning

SAP S/4HANA is a next generation real-time enterprise resource management suite and is built on an advanced in-memory platform. Thereby, supply chain data and processes can be streamlined to enable faster planning and execution processes, resulting in more accurate information and better decision support. Having production planning and detailed scheduling in the ERP core eliminates complex integration. Furthermore, simplified data models in one data store, processed with the speed of in-memory, increases planning agility and accuracy.

Comprises all 5 DDMRP components

S4-advanced DDMRP for SAP S/4HANA realizes the DDMRP concept as defined by the Demand Driven Institute (DDI) in SAP S/4 HANA and is part of Camelot’s Demand Driven LEAN Planning Suite. The suite is fully embedded in SAP S/4HANA along with modern SAP Fiori UI, supports all mobile device types and represents the only SAP based solution for production planning & scheduling based on Demand-Driven Rhythm Wheel Planning and Demand-Driven MRP. S4-advanced DDMRP for S/4HANA encompasses all five components of DDMRP, i.e. strategic inventory positioning, determination of buffer profiles and levels, dynamic adjustments, demand-driven planning and visible & collaborative execution. The components process master data and transactional data directly from/to the SAP S/4HANA database, ensuring data homogeneity.

It can be run on-premise at the customer’s site, hosted in Camelot’s data center, or as a Service in the cloud. Upon request, it even comes together with smart business services to support your organization best.

Easy integration with SAP S/4HANA and S4-advanced DDRWP

Achieving a decisive step towards becoming a Demand-Driven Adaptive Enterprise

S4-advanced DDMRP for SAP S/4HANA can easily be integrated with all components of the Demand-Driven LEAN Planning Suite, the only SAP certified software for Demand-Driven Supply Chain Management (DDSCM), combining Demand-Driven Replenishment Planning with Leveled Production, and Monitoring. It provides customers with the following features:
Demand-Driven Stock Buffer Parameterization:

  • Optimized stock buffer placement
  • Calculation of decoupled lead times for demand driven planning
  • Segmentation using buffer profiles and precise determination of DDMRP buffer levels
  • Improved transparency by analyzing parameter and inventory development

Demand-Driven MRP (DDMRP) Planning Engine:

  • Decoupling of wrong forecasts from supply order generation
  • Dynamic adjustment of buffer levels for planned or anticipated events
  • DDMRP net flow equation including qualified sales order demand and order spikes
  • Combining pull replenishment with FC-based demand & supply projection

Flow-Based Metrics & Demand-Driven Analytics:

  • Easy prioritization and supply order generation based on net flow status
  • Stock Buffer Analytics (Buffer Integrity Status, Replenishment Signal Integrity)
  • Tactical & Operational Supply Chain Planning Dashboards
DDMRP is evolving to become the new supply chain planning standard. Anticipating this, we started early to make the revolutionary concepts realizable in SAP software. What begun in 2015 with SAP SCM continued in 2017 with SAP IBP and SAP S/4HANA.
