Cross-module team workshop
Workshop on ERP planning and transition to SAP EWM
38 of our consultants took part in a two-day workshop in Hamburg organized by colleagues for colleagues. Over the last few months, three of our team leads worked intensively on planning and preparing the workshop. They were particularly concerned with clearly identifying the interfaces between ERP planning and the transition to SAP EWM (Extended Warehouse Management). They presented various topics, conveyed theoretical knowledge and illustrated this with practical project experiences. The following contents were covered:
Agenda Day 1:
- Program Planning
- Disposition procedure
- Principle of material requirements planning
- Production planning / data services in SAP S/4HANA
Agenda Day 2:
- Delivery Interface
- Classic and new production connection
- Availability check
In the introduction, the structure of supply chain planning in SAP S/4HANA and the aspects of production planning and control were explained in detail. This laid the foundation for the rest of our agenda. This comprehensive presentation enabled the trainees and junior consultants to gain a deep insight. At the same time, their knowledge was refreshed and they were informed about the latest developments and requirements in the various SAP modules.
The workshop was a significant enrichment for our consultants. It enabled an interactive exchange in which they could learn from each other. It became clear who is responsible for specific areas of expertise. These insights promote internal communication and help ensure that both new and experienced colleagues know who to contact with specialist questions. This creates smoother project communication throughout the team.
The two-day workshop offered not only our new team members but also all participants the chance to get to know our teams and colleagues better. The workshop was concluded with a joint evening in the restaurant. This opportunity allowed not only an exchange outside the professional context, but also the chance to get to know colleagues privately.
Such events weld the team together professionally as well as amicably. Besides the daily project business, they complement a balance to acquire new knowledge, to update oneself and to benefit from the project experiences of the others.
We are very proud of the commitment that is invested in our teams on a daily basis.
