Production Planning and Control with SAP ERP

About Production Planning and Control with SAP ERP

"No one would argue that the processes of production planning and production control can be quite complex. The authors chose to be straightforward. Illustrations are hypothetical examples based on the production of air-conditioning systems. I like the concise and practical presentation throughout. 

This is a good reference book for SAP Production Planning and Control if you are looking to get certified. Also good for end-users that want to explore different functionalities of SAP BOMs/Routings."
