Hi Ashok,

Have a look at FAQ: Middle and Late SAP Career Paths and see if it doesn't answer some of your questions. Supply Chain and APO are more Production Planning related than SD/MM related though there is definitely an aspect of Materials Management (and Warehouse Management). Correct me if I'm wrong, though. Is your goal to cross-specialize in the functionality aspect or to become a project manager type? In either case, you'll want to train up on the requisite skills.

Hope this helps!

Best regards,

Hi Tom,

Thank you for your email.

I have enquired and come to know that APO is advanced functionality of PP. The person with SD/MM and PP can do better in APO, because APO has demand planning , SNP, Global Availability check, Transportation and Vehicle scheduling.

The APO job requirements too asking the consultant to have a better knowledge in SD/MM/PP can apply.

The basic idea is am planning to explore myself in PP for one year and then to take APO.

I have four years of manufacturing experience in start of my career.

My ambition is to lead the SAP supply chain (Logistics) team in any big organization.

Thanks

Ashok
