Plan Work Quickly with S/4HANA
EP Editorial Staff | January 22, 2020
Interface moves you from notification to planned work in six simple steps.
By Kristina Gordon, Illumiti
The new paradigm in S/4HANA aims to help users understand how they are doing (embedded analytics) and what they should be working on (through exception reporting), in addition to facilitating day-to-day transaction processing. This month we’re going to focus on embedded analytics and planning. The scenario begins with a notification that is converted to a work order, then plan materials, and labor. It is important to note that the screens and dashboards shown are a standard out-of-the box solution with S/4HANA Fiori.
+ Step 1:
Navigate to Planner/Scheduler user group and click on Maintenance Planning Overview.
+ Step 2:
Select Notifications for Screening and review open notifications. (The dashboard also gives some critical metrics such as purchasing information for the work order and status by priority).
+ Step 3:
Select first notification and click arrow, notification will display. Click Generate Orders to convert approved notification to a work order.
+ Step 4:
Now view on dashboard that notification has moved from notification for screening to Orders for Planning.
+ Step 5:
Click Orders for Planning, work order will display, check the box and click the arrow on the side.
+ Step 6:
Fill in information and select set system status and release the order. The order for planning has now moved from the planning tile. EP
