SCX indicators and KPIs with ifm's own authorisation objects

Previously, only the SAP standard authorisations (e.g. plant) were checked for the SCX indicator. Now, ifm's own authorisation objects can be used to further restrict the SCX indicator, the SCX process indicators and the SCX KPIs. This ensures that those responsible can only view and analyse the process indicators and corresponding KPIs that are relevant to their area.

Supply Chain Process Excellence

Supply Chain Process Excellence is the new Software as a Service (SaaS) app on the Business Technology Platform (BTP), which now also guides users through their supply chain processes in the cloud. The app enables role-based and activity-orientated work. Various ifm supply chain functions can be integrated into the different process areas. Pre-selected parameters enable a direct jump to the activities.

New “planning scenario“ selection field in the SCX process

A new field has been integrated into the preselection in the SCX process: planning scenario. This is the MRP scenario from long-term planning/simulation. To avoid misunderstandings, the previous planning scenario from demand planning has been renamed in “planning“ at the same time.

Integration of videos, documents, images, etc. via a link in the SCX process

In the SCX process, it is now possible to store an external link in the activity or via the combination of categories. This can be used to integrate videos, documents, images, etc. into the process. If a link has been maintained, it can be called up via the corresponding icon.
