The next generation of SAP variant configuration

 

Especially when using configurable materials, life cycle management becomes very important. Adjustments to a product are not documented by a new data model, but changes to characteristics, rules, prices as well as parts list and routing structures take place within an existing data model. We support you in maintaining and servicing this data by storing information clearly and in tabular form. With the help of search and filter functions, the management of such requirements is demonstrably optimised.

 

 

The new variant configurator "Advanced Variant Configurator" (AVC) in SAP S/4HANA is the direct successor to the LO-VC (classic variant configurator). AVC combines new technologies in the backend, such as SAP HANA, with an optimised and more flexible processing of the configuration as well as modern interface technologies with the help of SAP FIORI. This raises questions such as: Can the existing data models continue to be used? What needs to be prepared for the changeover to AVC? What are the advantages of switching to AVC?

 

 

Nowadays, enterprise mobility is no longer only crucial for large corporations. More and more medium-sized companies are realising that mobile systems can make processes more efficient. As SAP's solution partner for variant configuration and thanks to its comprehensive understanding of processes for variant manufacturers, msg treorbis has developed the msg.Variant UI5 quotation configurator to meet these new requirements.

 

 

Through the SAP Cloud Platform, additional functions besides configuration can be provided. For example, configuration data can be used in additional applications via APIs or new services can be provided to end users after configuration. As an integration platform, the SAP Cloud Platform offers the possibility to make SAP configuration logic available in third-party systems, so that a configuration can be initiated from third-party systems and the configuration result is identical in all systems.

 

 

Inefficient offers lead to lost customers and lost revenue. Powerful CPQ, built on an independent, scalable platform, enables more than just instant generation of even the most complex quotes. SAP CPQ provides intelligent information on pricing behaviour to identify pricing trends. It supports multiple price books and currencies, provides functionality for quotes with thousands of line items and unlimited nesting. SAP CPQ integrates seamlessly with any CRM, ERP and the SAP Lead to Cash Suite to deliver more sales power from one source.

SAP CPQ in combination with our treorbis3D visualisation solution:

 

Configurable materials include a variety of different rules to describe dependencies between objects. SAP offers a variety of techniques for this in both LO-VC and AVC. The right solutions for optimal master data creation must be found individually for each customer based on the product and process structures. With our own certified add-ons, we create transparency in the structures so that the specialist department is once again able to store its own rules.

 

 

Modern, sales-oriented companies use web-based platforms to allow customers to configure products and enter orders. Graphical representation is also a must, as are order-related documents that are passed on to the customer. The maintenance often requires special expert knowledge, which, however, the sales department often does not have. The separation of expert knowledge and master data maintenance often leads to lengthy processes that make it difficult to adapt master data quickly and unnecessarily lengthen the reaction time to market requirements. With msg.Variant Sales, we offer an SAP-certified tool that enables the specialist departments to maintain master data, significantly simplifies the creation of configuration data and thus helps to avoid errors and unnecessary delays.

Delays in the supply chain cause costs. Complex data structures when using configurable materials are often the cause. The set of rules in the SAP standard often does not help in such cases, as it requires specialist knowledge to maintain and create the configuration master data. Intelligently combining individual production orders into packages can counteract this dilemma. msg.Variant Supply Chain Management simplifies both your data management and the processes in the value chain.

 

 

Variant manufacturers must be able to make flexible and reliable statements about sales figures and profitability. In the SAP standard, however, such information is difficult to master because the variant model is subject to constant change. With msg.Variant Analytics, we offer a process-integrated, automated SAP ERP and SAP BW cross-system solution that supports you in maintaining and evaluating the database in SAP BW.
