SAP Production Planning module allows to plan Production and Procurement.

In this course the student will get an understanding of all involved Master Data in this process and in how to run the Materials Requirements Planning or MRP.

All lessons contain and introductory theoretical overview and a demo in the system.

For a better understanding a simple case study has been created where we simulate the plan of the manufacturing of a bicycle in SAP.

After an introduction and general overview, in the second section we see all involved Master Data. Then how demand is created, specially Planned Independent Requirements. Finally, we will see how to run MRP and a demo example analyzing its result.

This course will allow students to get an understanding of what this module offers and how to make a basic demo.

Who is the target audience?
  • SAP users
  • SAP consultants
  • Production or Procurement Planners
  • Anyone interested in SAP Production Planning functionality

Basic questions as what is an ERP, what is SAP and what is the module PP will be addressed.

Preview 04:00

In this session it will be explained in a graphical manner what is SAP PP (Production Planning) and what functionality involves.

In following sessions of this SAP PP course, this functionality will be explained further.

The Material Master is the main Master Data involved in all Logistic and Production Processes (including SAP PP).

In this session we will see an overview of how it is structured in SAP and the main maintenance screens and fields.

Materials Overview

After understanding the concept in previous session, in this one we will see a Demo of how to create a Material Master.

Only main SAP PP fields will be seen. The Material Master is a complex object with different views for the different process and many involved fields.

Preview 11:38

BOMs (Bill of Materials) are needed for indicating to the system which components are needed to manufacture a semifinished or finished product.

They are used in different departments, but are very important for Planinng (SAP PP), as they are going to be used by the MRP for exploding requirements for Finished Goods down to the Components and Raw Materials.

Bills of Materials Overview

Once the concept of Bills of Materials has been introduced, in this lecture a demo will be shown of how to create a BOM.

After it, the student will be able to access to the BOM maintenance transaction and create / modify BOMs entering the main SAP PP fields.

A practical demo case of the manufacture of a Bicycle will be used to ease the understanding.

Preview 12:36

Work Centers model the different machines or persons that will realize the work.

Each Routing Operation must be assigned to a Work Center (except when we are creating External Operations).

Capacity, Scheduling and Costing data will be maintained in this Master Data and they will be impact how the rest of SAP PP functionality behaves. These data will be explained in this session with the help of different graphical elements.

Work Centers - Overview

A demo will be shown creating a Work Center that is going to be used in the Bicycle manufacturing.

Capacity, Scheduling and Costing Formulas, used in SAP PP, will be shown.

Work Centers - Demo

Other of the most important Master Data to maintain for using SAP PP functionality are Routings.

In the Routings we specify the different steps in the manufacturing process.

After this session, the student will understand main fields involved and main functionality to configure in them.

Routings - Overview

Routings needed for the demo case will be created in the system in this lecture.

After this session, the student will be able to create this SAP PP Master Data, normally maintained by the Production Deparment.

Routings - Demo
2 Lectures 15:24

Once we have seen main SAP PP Master Data objects, in this session we are going to see how to enter Planned Independent Requirements or Forecast to feed the MRP.

After it the student will be able to distinguish between Primary and Secondary Demand and how they can be configured in the system.

Demand Management Overview

Following the demo case, in this session some forecast quantities are going to be entered for the finished product (the bicycle).

After it the student will be able to maintain Planned Independent Requirements and to know which basic functionality can be used.

Demand Management Demo
2 Lectures 30:46

MRP (Materials Requirements Planning) is the main tool in Planning. A clear understanding of how it works is needed for being able to use it.

In this session, it will be explained in a easy way in order to understand the basics of it.

MRP Overview

Once we have created all needed Master Data for our Demo Case, and we have entered Planned Independent Requirements we are going to explode these requirements to the lower BOM levels through the use of the MRP.

After this lecture, the user will be able to launch MRP in a basic scenario, main process in SAP PP.

MRP Demo
2 Lectures 23:25

In this lecture you will learn:

  • What is a Production Order in SAP
  • What information includes
  • What different operations and statuses can be performed in its management
Production Order - Overview

In this lesson, you will learn:

  • How to convert a Planned Order into a Production Order from the Stocks and Requeriments List (Transaction MD04)
  • How to create manually a Production Order (Transaction CO01)

Ricardo Naya, Industrial Engineer, CPIM (Certified in Production and Inventory Management), SAP PP certified and MBA among other titles, has worked during more than 12 years in SAP implementation or improvement projects in main leader companies worldwide in different industries (Nestle, Alcatel, Roche, Burberry, ...).

SAP consulting experience has allowed him to know the processes and best practices in different industries, as long as adquire a deep knowledge of this ERP.

SAP consulting does not only require technical knowledge of the system, like execute the different transactions. But also a functional knowledge of why SAP offers the different options and which standard ones are allowed.

By means of his training courses, Ricardo hopes to deliver both approaches and in this way to ease the learning and understanding of SAP.


Ricardo Naya, Ingeniero Industrial Superior en Organización Industrial, CPIM (Certified in Production and Inventory Management), certificado en SAP PP y MBA entre otros estudios, ha trabajado durante más de 12 años en proyectos de implantación o de mejora de SAP en las principales empresas líderes mundiales de diferentes sectores (Nestlé, Alcatel, Roche, Burberry,...).

La experiencia en consultoría SAP le ha permitido conocer los procesos y las mejores prácticas en diferentes industrias, así como adquirir un amplio conocimiento de este ERP.

Trabajar con SAP no solo requiere unos conocimientos técnicos del sistema, cómo realizar las distintas transacciones por ejemplo. Sino también un conocimiento funcional de el porqué SAP las ofrece de una manera y qué opciones de configuración estándar permite.

Por medio de sus cursos de formación, Ricardo espera poder transmitir ambos enfoques y de este modo facilitar el aprendizaje y entendimiento de este ERP.
