What are the key business objectives our customers are challenged with today?
They have to comply with regulations such as the US Bioterrorism act or the European
food safety regulation
The still want to ensure customer satisfaction despite outsourcing some or even all of their
supply chain activities
They want to reduce their costs by reducing uncertainties that lead to buffer inventory and
buffer times and/or expensive fire-fighting
They want to reduce time to action by being able to recognize and react upon unplanned
events in the supply chain and their effect
They want to manage by exception rather than monitoring processes that are running
smoothly
They have to provide transparency for themselves or for their business partners
throughout the complete distributed process
And in the end, the want to control their and their business partners performance

Supply Chain Event Management was defined by AMR as an application supporting
control processes for managing events within and between companies.
As per this definition, this application supports the ability to monitor what is happening
within the supply chain, to notify the right person in case of a delay or critical event,
simulate activities, control your processes and eventually measure your supply chain
activities so that you can adapt your business process and make it more effective and
efficient.

SAP 2008 / Page 8
Ev e n t Po s s i b i l i t i e s
Actual events refer to certain milestones in the process. Usually these milestones are
planned with the help of an application and are stored within the ERP system, but you also
may want to define additional milestones.
If an actual event occurs within a given tolerance, you call it a regular event.
Besides that an event that you expect to happen within a particular time frame can happen
outside of that time frame. This is an early/late event and could cause a subsequent event
to be rescheduled, or it could simply be recorded.
An unexpected event is one that you dont plan, because you dont want it to happen. Still,
it might have a big impact on your process
Fourth is an unreported event. Here, you expect an event to occur within a particular time
frame, it is not reported. Something still needs to happen following this event whether or
not it is reported, so you could set a time limit that sends a message or causes something
to happen when the event is unreported in a certain time period.
Supply Chain Event Management is dealing with all those different event types.

The Business process is represented by an event handler, including relevant
attributes (IDs, parameters) and status information
Milestones and expected measurements contain information about what is
planned to happen in the process
Actual events and measurements are posted manually or from systems (B2B
exchange, Web, handheld)
Attachments (for example, digital signature) can be posted with an event.
SAP EM allows responses, according to definable rules

Visibility Processes allow us to add business content to the SAP EM tool.
A Visibility Process is a template that makes SAP EM implementation easier for the
customer. SAP provides pre-configured templates that a customer can either implement as
is or adapt to his specific business process so that he does not need to start from scratch.

Visibility: process
Track processes across multiple company/partner boundaries
Visibility: asset and planning
Distribute inventory, capacity, and schedule-sharing among supply chain partners,
SAP and non-SAP environments.
Visibility: performance
Manage goals such as service agreement, delivery ti mes
End-to-end process i mprovements, enhanced by RFID and other emerging
technologies, are delivering visibility across global networks to help organizations
manage risk and create value.
This requires visibility not only on a process level, which means to track a process from
one end to the other and across company boundaries, but also on an object level, if you for
example are a company that distributes its goods with the help of items that are more
expensive than the goods they carry. Last but not least, you need visibility on agreed
performance goals to be able to measure yourself and your business partners.

Our Event Management solution is creating some highly satisfied customers.
For example, Colgate monitors the transportation tendering process with its carriers. In
addition they monitor delivery shipments and alert customers of changes or pending
arrivals.
Texas Instruments monitors the production process and materials moving between plants.
Similar to Colgate, they also monitor delivery shipments and alerts customers of changes
or pending arrivals.
Canada Post has their SAP Event Management solution completely connected to third-
party systems and tracks parcels as they move from the shipper to their final delivery
points.
