Materials Management

Learn from the Leader - Real time SAP scenario’s

Level II Training
Honestly, Materials Management is one of the “easy” modules
in SAP. At the same time it is very powerful because it
interacts very frequently with all the other modules. This is
one module which every SAP consultant has to master at some
point or the other in their SAP Career…

Meetings…meetings…Non stop meetings…Blueprint Phase is generally the
most important (& boring) part of the project!

If you do not do sufficient prototyping during this phase, you will be


talking in the air and the client can only hope that the implementation will
go on well…

Even worse, you might not be able to make the system work in the way,
you had believed it would, by (mis) understanding the SAP help
documentation!! And mid-way into the realization phase, you will be
forced to re-design your solution.
We will avoid this scenario, once and for all!

This training on “Real time Project Scenario’s for Materials Management”


will replicate a blue-print phase of a project. The Shoubii Consultants
will play the dual role of the client Business Manager as well as a
Solution Architect of a project.

The Business Manager will explain the actual business scenarios. Then we
will get into some discussion to understand the requirement. Finally the
Solution Architect will give a direction on how it has to be mapped in SAP.

As future SAP consultants, you are expected to design it and present it to


the team! Can you see your SAP Dreams come true, already?
