At a company, different departments handle different stuff, such as accounting, HR, sales, marketing, etc. They cooperate with one another and are linked together (e.g., HR department with financial and accounting team for salary-related matters). In SAP software, all these functions are divided into modules. Here are some of them:
SAP SD (Sales and Distribution) is used to manage shipping, billing, selling, and transportation of products and services in an organization.
SAP PP (Production Planning) tracks and makes a record of the manufacturing process flows, for example, the planned and actual costs. Also, goods movements from the conversion of raw material to semi-finished goods. SAP SAP MM (Material Management) helps organizations with material management, inventory management, and warehouse management in the supply chain process.
SAP FICO (Finance/Controlling) allows an organization to store a complete version of their financial transaction data. It helps companies generate and manage financial statements for analysis and reporting, as well as supports effective business planning and decision-making.
