Item description for Supply Chain Management Based on SAP Systems by Gerhard F. Knolmayer...

In recent years, Supply Chain Management (SCM) has become one of the most widely discussed issues on top management`s agenda. One essential precondition for the implementation of SCM concepts are powerful information systems. Many manufacturing companies deploy the logistics modules of the SAP R/3 system. In 1997 SAP enlarged its focus beyond Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems and started an SCM initiative, which resulted in the Advanced Planner and Optimizer (APO) system. Today, APO has become one of the main components of the solutions. This book describes the principles and methods of intra- and inter-company SCM with reference to Release 4.6 of the SAP R/3 and to Release 3.0 of the SAP APO system. It also discusses potential future developments of these widely used software systems. The final chapter of the book contains an annotated overview of the most valuable online resources dealing with SCM.

Reviews - What do customers think about Supply Chain Management Based on SAP Systems?

Poorly written  May 16, 2007
I purchased this book to understand how SAP manages the supply chain, but am pretty disappointed with it. The book apparently was translated from German and is not well written. It feels like the majority of the book is sited from other sources (there are 17 pages of references if this gives you any hint). They will throw five quotes into the same paragraph in some cases. This makes the book very hard to read, it just doesn't flow. Snipits are inserted that really don't fit. It feels like the author's don't really have anything to contibute, they just grabbed other quotes and through a book together. I will probably resell this book and find one that actually makes sense when you read it. Sorry, but I recommend looking elsewhere if you actually want to learn something.
One of the worst books I have ever read  Jan 7, 2007
If you are an SAP consultant, this books is not for you. It may give you some superficial information on supply chain if you a SAP user, but I think one of your SAP core team IT folks may be able to teach you that in a few hours. So, don't waste your money on this book, just talk to your SAP support team if you want to understand the process, or pick up another book that would really teach you supply chain management.
talks about as a portal and marketplace  Sep 22, 2006
The book seems best for a newcomer to SAP's software. It describes at a fairly high level the very complex set of packages that SAP offers.

There is a topic that might be of especial interest to some readers. This is an enterprise-wide portal plus a marketplace. In the computer press, it has received wide publicity. Partly because it gave employees a more role-based and more personalised view into their corporate resources. While the marketplace aspect was a reaction to the rise of the b2b startups during the dot com era. Though most of those startups failed, they did propagate the idea of a convenient marketplace on the Internet. The book shows how SAP implemented this.
Okay, for expaling SAP in Supply Chain  Jun 22, 2006
I have worked for SAP America some time ago in the module of CRM however when I changed careers and went into automotive supply chain, I needed to understand my work. Well, I purchased this book. It's OKAY for understand supply chain in SAP but find another book for learning the functinal processes, this book explains the business process. Too, the author does give a good overview of how supply chain management is used in the SAP environment. It would be a good reference point if your company is implementing SCM in SAP.
some comments  Feb 28, 2006
Sincerely I was thinking this book was more hands on tool than a theoretical review on supply chain. Even though those concepts are very important I feel that more technical matters on how to operate the SCM would had been useful for the readers.
