This work brings together some of the most up to date research in the application of operations research and mathematical modeling techniques to supply chain management problems. The book’s chapters place a heavy emphasis on the application of modeling techniques to real world management problems. Each chapter is a self-contained study of a timely and relevant research problem in supply chain management. In many instances, the actual results from applying these techniques in practice are highlighted. In addition, each chapter provides important managerial insights that apply to general supply chain management practice. Included are several chapters that address the new and rapidly growing role of eCommerce in supply chain management.
Audience: This book can serve as a valuable reference for researchers in supply chain management as well as a reference textbook for a graduate level reading course.

Characteristics are used in SAP as attributes, e.g. to specify the configuration of products or the properties of batches. In many industries engineering, automotive, mill, pharmaceutical and foods to name the most typical supply chain planning has to consider these characteristics. APO offers many different functionalities for planning with characteristics, where each of the functionalities has some prerequisites and incompatibilities. This book offers help and advice for the basic design of the implementation by explaining the processes and scenarios (process chains) for planning with characteristics, the functionalities for planning with characteristics in APO including their prerequisites and incompatibilities and the entities, dependencies and system configuration determinants for planning with characteristics in R/3 and APO. This book is based on the releases R/3 4.7 and mySAP SCM 4.1.

This book describes and demonstrates how SAP® APO 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, SAP APO being a typical example of an advanced planning system (APS).
The authors address readers involved in optimization projects in which SAP and, particularly, SAP APO 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.
The Advanced Planner and Optimizer (APO) is the software from SAP dedicated to supply chain management. This book addresses the question how to implement APO in a company. It is written from a long years’ experience in implementation projects and aims to provide project managers and team members with the necessary know how for a successful implementation project. The focus of the book lies in introducing modelling approaches and explaining the structure and interdependencies of systems, modules and entities of APO. Another concern is the integration with the R/3 system(s), both technically and from a process point of view. Since APO projects differ significantly from other SAP projects, some key issues and common mistakes concerning project management are pointed out as well.
