Evolve Manufacturing With the Smart Use of SAP

Innovation in Manufacturing that Is Sustainable

Supply chains were already challenged before COVID-19, then suddenly issues like flexibility, resiliency and transparency were taken to new levels as manufacturers dealt with the reality of significant disruptions.

For many manufacturers the speed and magnitude of the disruptions exposed their supply chain planning and operations. New suppliers, new manufacturing models, and new demands. Suddenly, manufacturers had to source, certify and onboard new suppliers, seek greater supplier transparency, and manage fluctuating demand and supply in real time.

Can all this complexity be effectively, efficiently, and dynamically managed in SAP without spreadsheets and manual workarounds?

Yes. SAP is designed to handle the complexities of the Manufacturing industry and Reveal has deep industry expertise and experience applying best practices to help Manufacturing organizations. Our education and enablement approach has brought improvements in the areas of Supply Chain Management, Maintaining Inventory, Capacity Constraints, Labor Shortage, and Embracing New Technology.
