Welcome to another edition of the ‘What’s new in SAP Business Network for Supply Chain’ series of blog posts where I discuss the new features delivered with every major release.
While you can get a full overview of the 2308 release items for SAP Business Network for Supply Chain under the following link, I wanted to focus on two that I consider especially great additions to the solution.
1) Additional Customizations for Ship Notice Excel Template for Upload/Download
With this feature we are enhancing the extensibility of SAP Business Network for Supply Chain by introducing new customizations for the ship notice Excel template for upload/download. These customizations include providing alternate names and translations for standard attributes, allowing users to hide optional standard attributes, defining custom attributes to be required, and others.
The expected benefits are:
Providing more flexibility to customers when customizing the ship notice Excel template for their suppliers
Simplifying the generation of ship notices through a mass upload for suppliers
2) Quality Inspection Report.
Buyers who enabled SAP Business Network Supply Chain Collaboration, quality add-on and suppliers collaborating with them on quality processes will have access to a new quality inspection report type.
The quality inspection report aggregates information from multiple quality inspections and generates a spreadsheet in Excel format with multiple sheets:
Inspections – Lists general information about each quality inspection in the report.
Single Result – Records quality inspection characteristics containing multiple samples.
Summarized Recording – Records quality inspection characteristics containing a single sample.
Attachments – List of attachments for each quality inspection.
This great thing about this feature is that buyers and suppliers will be able to get their quality inspections information in a report where they will see all key information in one place.
Stay tuned for more news coming soon on SAP Business Network for Supply Chain !
