Business Rules

 

Automatic monitoring of your data and processes

BUSINESS RULES FOR SAP

There is erroneous data in every system: From incorrectly maintained master data to faulty transaction data to missing process data, there is hardly a system in which this never occurs. Sometimes these erroneous data are noticed directly, but most of the time they remain undetected until a process fails.

With Flexus Predictive Support, any business rules can be created to permanently monitor data and processes. Whenever certain data is missing or incorrect, actions can be defined. These actions range from messaging via email, Slack or Microsoft Teams to calling ABAP function modules.

With hundreds of business rules already created and the ability to create as many of your own as you like, you have the ability to identify problems before they occur and be actively notified before they cause process and production downtime.

AUTOMATIC MONITORING OF YOUR DATA AND PROCESSES

AVOIDANCE OF PROBLEMS DUE TO INCORRECT DATA

Incorrect data exists in every SAP system. Be it due to manual input errors, stopped processes or incorrect customizing. With the complexity and size of today's ERP systems, data errors or missing data can hardly be avoided.

Sometimes the problems are caught in subsequent processes and, in the best case, corrected automatically. Mostly, however, data errors lead to stopped processes, incorrect evaluations or incomprehensible error messages. Subsequently, the errors must be searched for and corrected at great expense.

Data errors cause problems

In our 25 years of experience with the implementation, operation and support of SAP applications, one criterion in particular has been crucial to the success of projects - the quality of the data!

For this reason, we have developed a tool for creating business rules to automatically and permanently monitor all relevant data.

Monitoring data and processes

Business rules can be created in an SAP Fiori interface, which can read, filter and process data, calculate KPIs, compare and ultimately trigger any actions. These business rules are scheduled to be run on a regular basis.

We provide you with a standard set of hundreds of business rules to catch the most common data errors. Of course, you can create your own business rules at any time, which are relevant for your internal processes. Depending on the situation and process, you decide which actions are executed, e.g. emails, Microsoft Teams messages or calls to webhooks, and at which thresholds they are triggered.

SUPPORTING FUNCTIONALITIES

  • Historization of the current customizing settings
  • Comparison of current settings with those of yesterday, last week and last year.
  • Graphical reports with BarCharts, heatmaps and tables for the results of the Business Rules
  • Security settings, which tables may be read out & where data is sent to

ADVANTAGES OF BUSINESS RULES

Quick response time

No data leaving the system

Share data with other systems

Suitable for all SAP data & processes

Data transparency in real time

Additional Data Rules without effort

INDEPENDENT CREATION OF NEW BUSINESS RULES

Once you or your key users understand the principle of business rules, you can create your own and use them for all data in your SAP system. Whether WM, EWM or even FI and CO, business rules can be created for each area and module.

Anwendungsbeispiel

Aktion

SAP EWM

Are there too many/few open storage tasks in the picking queues? If yes, then send an email to the warehouse manager.

Image

Yard Management

Is a truck already waiting too long for an entry permit? Send a message to the control center so this can be handled.

Tugger Train Control

Are faulty trailer schemes stored? Without this master data, the tugger trains cannot be optimized. Master data is adjusted in SAP.

FI

Was a booking for amount X approved on the weekend? Log this booking in Splunk.

SAP MM

Was there a change to the material master during the project launch/hyper-care phase? If so, log this change in Slack.

Z-Tables

Route all data whose maximum grouped by column X is less than 20% to PowerBI, so that it can be examined more closely there.
