SAP system consists of a number of fully integrated modules, which covers virtually every aspect of business management.
The very fundamental question for any beginners is why Enterprise Resource Planning also called ERP, is required? To answer this, let’s examine this typical business scenario. Suppose a client approaches a sales team asking for a particular product. The sales team contacts the inventory department to check the availability of the product. To their surprise, the sales team found out that the product is out of stock. So next time this doesn’t happen, they have to introduce an SAP ERP tool. Before we actually see in detail, what ERP is and how ERP can help in your business process, we will understand how different departments are involved in the whole business process, right from the ordering of the raw material – to manufacturing goods – to delivering final products to the customer.
