This video provides an introduction to ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and SAP (Systems, Applications, and Products in Data Processing), specifically focusing on SAP’s Materials Management (MM) module. The presenter discusses the evolution of SAP, from its early two-layer application (R2) to its current state (S4/HANA), and explains how SAP has evolved to meet changing business and technological needs.
The video also explains the different modules in SAP, such as Materials Management (MM), Production Planning (PP), Sales and Distribution (SD), Finance and Controlling (FICO), and others. Each of these modules is designed to handle specific business processes, and they are all interconnected.
The presenter emphasizes the shift in SAP’s approach from focusing on individual modules to focusing on business processes. He outlines three key processes: “Procure to Pay”, “Plan to Produce”, and “Order to Cash”, explaining how different SAP modules contribute to each process.
