Business Background and Big Picture SAP SNC Product Overview Customer Examples

What is SAP SNC?


Its a supply chain collaboration application, but it has several different dimensions: Collaboration & Visualization Layer to External Partners
Show e.g. POs, Forecasts and Inventory from internal systems (ERP), encompassing the use of exception management. Extending processes running in internal systems. Allow partners to update information and respond back to internal systems (e.g. PO confirmations, ASNs, Forecast Responses). Collaborate and capture commitments from partners. Consolidate many internal systems into one SNC system, provides one comprehensive, simplified and consolidated view to the outside world.

Enabler of New Business Processes on top of Internal Systems


Responsive Replenishment (next-gen VMI), Work Order collaboration with contract manufacturers and Supply Network Inventory providing cross-tier/cross-partner visibility to supply, demand and inventory that go above and beyond what ERP systems provide. New processes integrate to existing internal (ERP) systems on buy and sell side, adding process value.

Multi-Mode Communication Layer to External Partners


Message-Based Communication like XML (B2B), File Sharing (Excel up/downloads), E-mail exchange w/ attachments and web UI allow a menu-based approach to reach full range of external partners. Is fully eSOA-enabled, utilizes NetWeaver PI (BW & EP optional) on top of WAS and using a web-based UI

WO Allows for Automated Production Progress Updates Invoices (Supplier Creates Invoices via the Web), Includes Regular and ERS Invoices (Self-Billing) Alerts for Exceptions (Includes e-mail notifications) BW Reporting Content for Alerts and Supplier Performance based on Alerts

Supplier Collaboration with SAP SNC All Suppliers Are Not Equal
Top Strategic Suppliers
Automated, optimized communication (e.g., EDI) with typical business pain points, such as: High spend, high-volume large suppliers Expensive connectivity efforts Poor visibility of mid/long-term forecasts, inventory, and capacity Low supplier performance accuracy Disconnect between public and private processes

Non-Strategic Suppliers
Unstructured, not optimized communication (e.g., Phone, Fax) with typical business pain points, such as: Unsynchronized supply and demand situation Long order cycle times Disruptions from last-minute changes Immense maintenance efforts of data High supply risk and costs

Low spend, low-volume small suppliers

Reaching Long Tail of suppliers requires multiple modes of connectivity
