The idea of SAP Best Practice is to provide templates for a specific industry sector to mid-size industry customers that enable them to rapidly implement the ERP system SAP Business Suite.
The SAP-certified advanced planning and scheduling solution ORSOFT Manufacturing Workbench is also available in the SAP App Center.
Some current SAP Best Practices Industry Packages contain an optional building block ORSOFT Manufacturing Workbench with installation and configuration guide as well as a description of the business procedures. This allows customers who use an SAP Best Practices Industry Package to get an initial idea about the functions of Manufacturing Workbench and its integration into the business processes and production scenarios of the package.
ORSOFT delivers a demo environment for ORSOFT Manufacturing Workbench that contains a pre-configured standard version adapted to the specific SAP Best Practices production model and scenarios. You can explore the functions of ORSOFT Manufacturing Workbench using this demo environment and the demonstration data provided as part of the respective SAP Best Practices Industry Packages.
There is also a standalone demo version that does not need a live SAP system with Best Practices but uses model data that has been captured from the respective industry package scenario.
Potential benefits of using ORSOFT Manufacturing Workbench result from the easiness of getting an overview (transparency of the planned production process) and from the enhanced usability (scheduling and rescheduling of orders).
The planning capabilities of the SAP ERP system are enhanced without the need for additional infrastructure, terminology or data extension.
