The feature allows the user to “detect and resolve overload situations” while also visualising and utilising bucket types such as shifts, days or weeks.
Buffer positioning is also included in the 1808 Update for manufacturing, which allows the visualisation to position itself via a network graphic.
The SAP S/4HANA Cloud 1808 updates are not just restricted to manufacturing as there is a raft of extensive updates included for the professional services industry.
In the 1808 Update, individuals working in professional services who are using SAP S/4HANA Cloud now has a “Cap in Time and Expense Billing”.
Managers negotiating with a client about a project can now define what the upper limit cap is.
There is also the inclusion of a new “Staffing Analysis Application”, which is available for both Project Manager and Resource Manager Roles.
Alongside this, SAP has created a new app called “My Projects – Key Figures” where steering committee members can now track their project statuses.
Sven Denecken, SVP Product Management, Co-Innovation SAP S/4HANA at SAP commented in a blog post: “With the new app, they can easily analyse projects by different measures and dimensions, e.g., project types, statuses, priorities, or even financial information.
“Leveraging this view of key project data supports steering committee members in identifying risks in time.”
