Full Time

With a background in one of the three core tracks of the SAP Supply Chain (Order to Cash, Forecast to Produce, Procure to Pay), the Supply Chain Lead has developed their career deep into their original track and expanded it to the other two to a degree in which they have a very solid knowledge not only about the integration points between these three tracks but also about the specific functionality and configuration elements that make those work in different ways and covering different business needs and scenarios.

The Supply Chain Lead has up-to-date knowledge of the SAP offering in the Supply Chain, with a central focus on the S/4 HANA Digital Core, and with a solid understanding of the tools around it, like IBP, Ariba, or C/4, etc.

Responsibilities:

  • The Supply Chain Lead has experience across multiple industries and has the versatility to discuss and advise clients on the process and business-oriented aspects of the Supply Chain design, as well as has the ability to be hands-on configuring SAP-based prototypes, proof of concepts and solutions, while at the same time distributing, assigning and supervising other consultants’ work as needed.

● Pricing Conditions, Info Records, Source Lists, Source determination, and assignment
● Release strategies (traditional and through BRF+)
● Tax integration (preferably with experience on Vertex, Avalara, Meridian, or similar tax engines)
● Intercompany and Intracompany Operations
● Procurement Related MRP settings (internal/external) including strategies, special procurement keys, MRP types, etc.
● Movement types, batch management, serial numbers, and stock determination rules
● Three-way match, the definition of variances, and tolerances.
● Inventory methods and processing
● Accounts Determination settings
● Integration with SRM and/or external procurement tools (Ariba, Coupa, etc.)
● Procurement Reporting and embedded analytics

Forecast to Produce:
● Detailed functional understanding and expert-level hands-on configuration in S/4 on the following areas.
● Independent Requirements, Planned Orders, Production Orders, Rework Orders, Confirmations Documents for Discrete, Repetitive, and Process Industries

● Manufacturing Reporting and embedded analytics
● The basic configuration of QM and PM preferred

Experience:

● 15+ years of experience designing and implementing SAP-based Supply Chain solutions, with emphasis on advising clients on which SAP features to use to fulfill their requirements, rather than “order-taking” on what and how to configure the system.
● Ability to identify opportunities for improvement in clients’ processes and propose solutions proactively even if the customer does not readily have requirements around those.
● At least 7 full-cycle implementation projects, with at least 3 of them on S/4 HANA.
● Industry experience across several industries, including Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical, Chemical, with at least one of them in a regulated/validated environment (FDA, EPA, GxP, etc.).
● Ability to organize and manage the activities of small teams, both for project work and for the development of internal team competencies.
● Mindset of “business first and technology later” to understand, analyze and define solutions in S/4 that address real business situations, rather than forcing technology in without a clear understanding of its impact on people, process, and strategy.
● University degree in Business, Engineering, Systems or Finance preferred
● Availability for up to 100% travel
