In this chapter, an example of an SCM system will be presented—SAP SCM. This umbrella term combines several solutions for different parts of supply chain management. The core module is SAP APO (advanced planner and optimizer). Since APO is a very comprehensive solution, and was the first available SCM component by SAP, many people still equate it with SAP SCM.
