Key Concept
A new SAP SCM release, SAP SCM 7.0, has been recently shipped. Supported by the most recent SAP technology, it contains planning processes that allow you to manage more complex supply chains and products. This new release is based on the SAP NetWeaver 7.01 platform. The end of maintenance is the end of 2015.
SAP SCM 7.0 became generally available in May 2009 after a six-month period of a Ramp-Up phase in which several companies tested and verified the robustness and new processes included in this new release.
