This book provides a comprehensive overview of the application of ERP Financials to the make to stock and make to order manufacturing process models. It is designed to provide valuable solutions and configuration/integration options that readers can use and apply directly in their daily activities. For Finance users, the book covers the standard business drivers and KPIs as they apply to each model, and lends guidance for configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling to maximize functionality for manufacturing finance. Implementation managers and consultants will benefit from the coverage of integrating ERP Financials with other SAP applications such as PP and MM, as well as the configuration sections for Master Data, Cost Object Controlling, and the Information System, among others. Readers from both functions will be able to make use of the numerous screen shots, configuration steps, best practice examples, and tips for system customization. Acknowledging the differences between the two primary manufacturing process models, the book is divided into three sections after an introductory chapter covering information generic to manufacturing models supported in SAP. Part I of the book covers the Make to Stock model, and comprises the bulk of book. Part II covers the Make to Order model. Part III provides a chapter filled with ready-to-use checklists and guides for budgeting and closing activities, and a chapter on the application of SAP Financial Performance Management (FPM, formerly CPM) to the manufacturing finance scenario.
