This week, our company conducted a webinar for manufacturing companies, where Josef Šumbera and Tomáš Slámka presented fundamental innovations of the SAP S/4HANA system in the field of production management. In addition to the above, the webinar was attended by the technical director Jan Vosátka from Wikov Industry, who presented the reasons why Wikov decided to implement the SAP S/4HANA system, including new modules.
Wikov’s reasons and requirements can be summarised in these points, which in our experience are addressed by most companies in connection with increasing productivity and digitising production processes, especially in the area of pre-production parts of production and planning.
A fundamental innovation in the SAP S/4HANA system is the coverage of the entire production process from product development through planning to in-house production, using the following new SAP modules:
It is specifically about the functionality of development and design of new products, where the SAP system now includes the PLM/PDM module – Product Lifecycle Management / Product Data Management. Another area is the functionality in the module of technical preparation of production and its connection to the design, own production and also advanced planning, which is now an integral part of the SAP S/4HANA system. The SAP system, in the latest version, covers the entire process with new modules and functionalities.
Thanks to these new functionalities, it opens up the possibility to implement the SAP system for a much larger number of customers and to a greater extent than the SAP system has enabled so far.

For the area of production management, we are preparing other webinars on the topic of ECTR and other modules.
