Embedded Predictive Analytics models (Capabilities) in S/4HANA

S/4HANA and Embedded Analytics is steadily gaining shape in the market.

Predictive capabilities have been incorporated in the S/4HANA system since the cloud version 1708

In in this blog, am trying to explain these concepts, with the help of a 1709 on Premise system.

If you have the relevant roles, you can add the specific tile from the APP Finder in Fiori Launch Pad.

Go to App Finder and look for “Predictive Models- Manage predictive models for business applications” App, which can further be added to the required group.

There are some use cases like “Operational Contract Management” and “Stock Management” which has been introduced in 1709.

SAP ship these Predictive Scenarios as standard with SAP S/4HANA 1709. They don’t ship trained models but a template that enables the customers to train models on their own data.

Predictive Model 1:

Predictive Analytics for Stock in Transit in Warehouse Management

With this predictive app, customers can track materials in transit/open stock transport orders for which no goods receipt has been posted by the receiving plant yet which have already exceeded the estimated time in transit.

Roles

The predictive model training needs to be done by Analytics Specialist. The application Overdue Materials – Stock in Transit needs the role of Inventory Manager.
