Item description for Real Optimization with SAP® APO by Josef Kallrath...
This book describes and demonstrates how SAPAPO can be used to tackle real optimization problems arising in industry. In a unique combination it deals with the aspects of model-building as well as with the implementation in commercial supply chain management software, SAPAPO being a typical example of an advanced planning system (APS).
The authors address readers involved in optimization projects in which SAP and, particularly, SAPAPO are implemented in companies. These are the project designers, projects leaders, the IT personnel inside the companies, but also operations research practitioners, supply chain management consultants, and decision makers in the area of tool selection for optimization tasks.

Reviews - What do customers think about Real Optimization with SAP® APO?
Nice Overview, Not a Manual Jan 11, 2007
This is a good overview of the SNP Optimizer and other modules in APO. It also goes into other optimization models (outside SAP), and has valuable examples of these in industries where optimization modeling long preceded SAP and SAP APO like the chemical and petroleum industries. Walking through the decisions of how these clients decided to either convert their models to an SNP implementation or use the external model as a bolt-on (the authors and SAP people prefer the term "plug-in") was enlightening.
This book will save you some grief in the decision-making process up-front, but it is not a how-to manual. At the time of writing the authors did not know of many live implementations of the SNP optimizer. The focus is on pre-implementation decisions and implementation. There is a lot of talk about what in SNP is technically possible, but not advised and could yield an impractical implementation. The book provides a good perspective for experienced practitioners of optimization modeling.
Good overview of SNP Optimizer Aug 24, 2006
Good overview of SNP Optimizer. Does not get into details, but does show explain how optimizer works. Good examples of implementations for clients in various industries. Strictly concerned with SNP Optimizer. Good reference material but would not use on an on-going basis.
