SAP SD (Sales and Distribution) module of SAP ERP system enables companies to manage sales and customer service. It is one of the fundamental modules of SAP ERP and is implemented in most SAP projects. This module is also related to outbound logistics and shipments.
SAP SD helps the organizations' processes to store and manage customer and product related data. This data is then used to manage all of the sales ordering, shipping, billing, and invoicing of their goods and services. SAP Sales and Distribution manages the business processes that are required in selling, billing, and shipping of a product. It supports the customers starting from quotations, sales order, until the billing, sales & distribution, as well as credit management. In essence, SAP SD covers the entire order-to-cash process chain from customer inquiry, sales order and delivery including the billing and payment collection.
SAP SD integrates well with other SAP modules such as FICO, MM, PP, PM, QM, HR, and others. Thus, SD working in conjunction with other modules, enables a complete sales cycle business process.
SD handles all the details in the sales and distribution part of the cycle and streamlines the sales process such as generates a sales quote, the customer then places a sales order, the goods are picked from a warehouse or production facility and shipped to the customer, an invoice is sent with the order and accounts receivable settles the payment with the customer. Each step in the process generates transactions in the SD module, which then generate further transactions in the other ECC modules. As an instance, when a sales order is generated in SD, it establishes a link for a product availability check to MM, a credit check to FICO, and so on.
