SAP Community Roundtable Topic Date & Time
CAPEX processes in asset-intensive industries are complex and range from long-term processes starting at the portfolio level several years out, through to ad-hoc asset replacements in short-term timeframes.

There is no single SAP solution for asset design and estimation across these timeframes and scenarios, and custom solutions are frequently developed within individual organisations to handle requirements such as design versions, evaluation of alternative designs and interaction with multiple different SAP objects over diverse timeframes.

To comprehend this operational and technical complex, this session:

1. Describes the operational and productivity challenges encountered in the processes of long-term plans to construct and replace assets

2. Overviews the standard SAP functionalities available for these processes and their limitations on the consistency of approach and discontinuity in the business processes

3. Discusses the individual enhancements commonly used to address these limitations

4. Presents a unified enhancement which empowers an end-to-end seamless orchestration of designs across the long-term planning lifecycle for asset construction and replacement
