The modern supply chain is characterized by process complexity and confusion. Individual customer desires for products, packaging and delivery dominate the daily business of the company as do extremely short response possibilities. Often the affected employees can only respond to exceptions - planned and goal-oriented activity is only possible under certain conditions.
Automated alerts and prioritized process recommendations of monitors and indicators support the employees. The observation of real outcomes offers a realistic picture of the actual situation - a clear advantage over a view of rigid master data.
SALT Solutions combines important data for an effective logistics controlling. Our performance indicator system extracts the relevant “raw” data from SAP and the coupled systems and processes them as active and passive indicators. Visualization and „drill-down“ capabilities allow different management levels insight of each relevant aggregation level.
SALT Solutions‘ performance indicator system uses evaluations, reports and figures which can be stored in the standard SAP or SAP-BW/BI and is also fully upgradeable to future SAP development releases.
SALT Solutions‘ performance measurement indicators and monitors are developed by standard SAP methods or are integrated into SAP-BW/BI. This method offers an investment protection and a homogeneous IT environment to SAP users.
Information extractors of the logistics modules are available for the use of SAP-BW/BI .
Are complex performance management indicator projects still up to date?
In the event of failed warehouse data projects with high financial losses, companies have often lost the overview of possible solutions. Our projects, however, follow the strategy of quick, manageable steps. A brief analysis identifies key action areas. Subsequently, certain monitors are determined and implemented. A few weeks later, the data analysis and the derivation of improvement measures follows and the process starts over.
What is the difference between active and passive performance management indicators?
Active indicators consider current conditions and release warnings in exceptional situations. For example, the late delivery of required material can be visualized in the active form of a monitor. Similarly, the problem of a production line with reduced emissions is considered as an active indicator. Active indicators always serve the operational management control. Whereas passive figures consider the past and serve as a tool for strategic business decisions.
Can SAP-BW/BI be used for active and passive figures?
SAP-BW/BI is typically used for passive indicators. The need to respond online to exceptional circumstances when using SAP-BW/BI leads to the permanent data exchange between operational logistics systems and SAP-BW/BI.
Why is “raw” data of operational systems used and stored without further processing?
The unrestricted navigation in form of drill downs and the summary of information is only possible on the basis of elementary raw data. If already compressed or otherwise manipulated data is stored, the unlimited scrolling cannot be used anymore, which circumvents the localization of problem causes.
What benefits can be achieved by the use of monitors and performance management
SALT Solutions‘ monitors and key figures provide a comprehensive clarity in logistics and support of the operational management in logistics and strategic business
How safe is my investment?
SALT Solutions‘ monitors and indicators are fully implemented within the SAP world. The source code delivery and the availability of ABAP know-how/SAP-BW/BI on the market, guarantees the future. SAP architecture can be scaled optionally.
