SAP shortcomings addressed by SAP GBT

  • If you need to resolve an issue today with a batch / Serial Number or Handling Unit, there is no complete product genealogy tracing available in SAP thru all materials purchased, consumed, manufactured and distributed in the supply network.
  • No cross-system tracing capabilities exists today in SAP
  • Inability to analyze multiple tracking objects (e.g. batches / serial numbers / handling units) in a single run for either bottom up or top down reports and movements
  • Data is inconsistent with missing data links between tracking objects or broken links across systems
