Service parts planning in mySAP SCM 5.0 is part of the service parts management solution that was developed in a joint effort of SAP AG, C- erpillar Logistics Services, Inc. and Ford Motor Company and generally released in 2006. This solution addresses service parts specific functions, and is based on new functionality within SAP APO (plus some functions for monitoring in SAP ICH and business content in SAP Netweaver BI ). The main planning areas of service parts planning are forecasting, inv- tory planning, procurement and distribution – similar as ‘normal’ SAP APO . Nevertheless the functionality is significantly different. Also the ‘look and feel’ of service parts planning is quite different. At the same time the effort for the creation of F1-help was significantly reduced. - cause of these reasons we use screenshots in this book to a comparatively large extent. The purpose of this book is to explain the functionality of service parts planning with mySAP SCM and the covered business processes. The t- get audience of this book is anyone who is considering or is already - volved in the implementation of the SAP service parts management so- tion – whether as project manager, as project member or as consultant.
