SAP Production Planning (generally referred to as SAP PP) is a core SAP module that provides a dedicated system for planning and execution of business manufacturing & production processes in an organization.


SAP PP contains master data, configurations and transaction data for completion of plan to production process. It helps in detailed planning for achieving the production goals and helps in recording, tracking of all production & manufacturing process. SAP PP handles all business processes related to production of a company. SAP PP includes all activities like Material Requirement Planning(MRP), Bill of Materials(BOM), Capacity Planning(CP) and Supply Chain Planning(SCP).

Since factories, small manufacturing units, foundries, etc. have manufacturing plants, SAP PP module forms an important part of their infrastructure as it provides the capabilities for efficient management of production facilities and processes.


In summary, SAP PP is the process of aligning demand with manufacturing capacity to create production and procurement schedules for finished products and component materials. It tracks and makes a record of the manufacturing process flows, for e.g, the planned and actual costs. Also, PP controls and manages the goods movement from conversion of raw material to semi-finished goods. It is fully integrated with the other SAP modules mainly MM, WM, SD, PM, FICO.
