Integrating With SAP Business One with Advanced Planning and Scheduling


Image resultSAP is a leader in the ERP industry, and provides an excellent solution for mid-sized companies in SAP Business One, one of PlanetTogether APS’ specialties. We integrate not only to SAP, but also legacy Production One by Navigator for SAP Business One, providing a flexible and thorough planning and scheduling system, capable of handling manufacturers across any industry. PlanetTogetherAPS’s SAP integration is based on Navigator i-Connect. The SAP Integration layer database is predefined based on a rich set of standard SAP objects. There is no need to start with a ‘blank sheet of paper’, the integration already understands materials, BOM, resources etc. The Integration layer database will also stay updated with frequent ‘delta updates’, which is standard functionality in the template.  The rich, standard data objects can be enhanced with customer specific data as needed (customer fields on standard objects, or completely custom tables). By building the transformations necessary to go to APS on top of the integration layer, the APS consultant is afforded plenty of modeling freedom, which in turn will enable a good APS solution fit, and high ROI. Imagine the places that PlanetTogether can take your production scheduling with a seamless integration into your SAP solution.

White Paper
