SAP offers various management tools to adjust processes to optimize a certain set of parameters without violating some constraints. The most common goals are to minimize costs and maximize throughput and/or efficiency.
SAP Management Tools – Process Optimization for Maximum Efficiency
Processes should always function with maximum efficiency due to the direct impact on the productivity of the employees who use them. But what happens, for example, if a piece of hardware is defective and it takes two days for IT to respond? The employee can only work at reduced capacity until the problem is solved or, in the worst case, is forced to do nothing.
Many companies that have been operating in the market for a long time have ingrained processes and don't always have the option of throwing them out and redesigning them from scratch. The simplest and best option is constant process optimization.
Some examples of optimization are:
Elimination of redundancies through automated releases in SAP Business Workflow
Streamline workflows with unique tickets in SAP Solution Manager
Improve communication between non-SAP systems and your own SAP system
Predicting changes with SAP Business Process Management
Is your company also constantly competing and facing challenges from other companies, disruptive technologies and changing standards?
The optimization of business processes offers many advantages that can help companies to hold their own in times of digital transformation, e.g. by:
- Market conformity
- Streamlined processes
- Reduced risks
- Resources well used
- Quality assured
- Continuous visibility
