Introducing the Latest in Direct Materials Sourcing

Optimize product costs and manage risk from design to production

While SAP Ariba customers have long used our strategic sourcing solutions to help manage direct materials, we knew you needed better integration with your product lifecycle management (PLM) and ERP infrastructure. More advanced sourcing, contract, and supplier management would help, too.

Watch this webinar replay to see the innovations we’ve implemented for this solution area. They include deeper integration with materials masters, costing of multi-level bills of materials (BOM), support for larger numbers of line items, final product costing, and more. You’ll learn about:

  • Smart sourcing with full, multi-level BOM support for product costing
  • End-to-end supplier lifecycle management integrated with sourcing
  • Contract lifecycle management for direct materials, including integration to execution systems
  • Rich, clean supplier segmentation, qualification, and risk data incorporated into sourcing processes
  • Easy and seamless integration with ERP, PLM, and operational procurement systems
