The products in our Sappy range are currently under intensive “core” testing. Thanks to their new core composition, developed for S/4HANA, you can look forward to new, expertly sculpted Sappy products with more convenient feature sets.

Every system is based on its core, which coordinates the activities of its running processes throughout its operations. In the development of our Sappy range of products, we reached a point where each approached the core slightly differently, complicating the system’s overall structure. And if certain systems also share functions, the program must also frequently call parameters from differing contexts, once again complicating the integration of systems and features. We thus decided to develop an entirely new core shared throughout the Sappy product range – which also brings several new features for users.

What’s in the New Concept

The main changes in the new core (Sappy General Run – SGR) include separating off the display layer, alongside a unified approach when launching transactions from any direction. This ensures that a given transaction will always run in absolutely the same way, no matter what the user’s client (PC/web) or product (EWM, MES etc.). The new display layer keeps the same principles and layout for SappyEWM as are seen in the current SappyWMS, even on mobile terminals. 

The user-interface features have also seen expansion. A broader set of error screens is one example. Unlike now, where users only see an error / no-error message, they will be able to see an incident specification – error, warning, info or success. Fully configurable function keys are surely another pleasant change, as is the option of longer button texts.

Sappy is a family of SAP add-ons that add advanced functions beside the standard ERP operations and ease end users’ operations. These advanced add-ons are a MOM (Manufacturing Operations Management) layer for managing warehouses and material flows (SappyWMS), collecting data and managing manufacturing (SappyMES) and verifying and managing quality (SappyQMS).
