Business Challenge

The customer wanted a custom development that would check for stock of all components in a sub-contract purchase order before firming the requisition and components in a production order before creating the production order. The availability check was not just a check on inventory of each component but also a check on the warehouse availability. Warehouse availability check was to flexible in the inclusion or exclusion of various stock categories such as stock in goods inspection, stock ready to be delivered to customer, etc.

Key Challenges:

Implementation Highlights

EIM solutions spent a considerable amount of time to understand the manner the SAP logic of checking for component availability on production orders and subcontract purchase orders.

To keep this exact same logic, a custom function module was developed that served as a wrapper for the SAP function module that carried out the availability check.

This custom development used standard SAP configuration to check for available stock in inventory management.

At the conclusion of the availability check, a similar check was conduct for warehouse stock. To make this a flexible definition for the customer, a custom table was introduced to define the stock types that could be considered available in warehouse management.

The result was presented to the customer as a summary per purchase requisition or planned order along with a detailed listing of all components per order.

This enabled the customer to evaluate availability across multiple orders and take decisions on creation or production orders and purchase orders.

Business Benefits

With the custom development provided by EIM, the productivity of Schlumberger has gone up several fold. What used to take half a day or more on a weekly basis is now accomplished within a matter of minutes.
