Roadmap to S/4HANA
Sichuan Decision: Implementation of FI/CO, PP, MM, SD
Decision, one of the largest manufacturers of leather and fur chemicals in China, had already implemented SAP ERP in 2012. But in 2015 they were looking to enhance it with the PP/FICO/MM/SD business modules, with the goal in mind to obtain a production scheduling platform and to improve cost analysis.
SAP in China
Although the first ERP implementations in China occurred in the early 1980s and major vendors like SAP have entered the market as long as 18 years ago, introducing an ERP system in China still represents a major challenge. ERP systems have often been described as a management philosophy rather than a piece of software. If this is the case, it can be expected that introducing ERP systems to the Chinese market pose unique opportunities as well as special problems. Local Chinese Companies are facing competition with international companies entering the Chinese market. Although these international companies are often burdened by a significant overhead of costs, they are more efficient in their processes. The implementation of an SAP system helps Chinese firms to follow international best practices and keep their competitive edge.
