Staged, partial implementation of the various modules
Because the various areas of the company have different requirements, the SAP modules were implemented partially and in stages over the course of the migration to SAP S/4HANA. At the start of 2020, for example, the module SAP HCM and the modules SAP FI, CO, AA, IM, PS were rolled out to all Austrian, Czech and German sales organizations. The module SAP MM, on the other hand, was not implemented at two sites because they produce special wood structures. SAP EAM for maintenance and logistics was introduced as a pilot project at one processing site. The plan now is to implement SAP MM and SAP EAM at all sites and roll out SAP at the sawmills.
Close collaboration and regular check-ins
The project succeeded thanks to excellent teamwork between scc and Mayr-Melnhof Holz. The close collaboration in decision-making and the regular review meetings for continual coordination and adjustments were key factors. SAP S/4HANA was successfully rolled out in the company and now provides a firm foundation for continued growth and a powerful platform for building future solutions.
“We sought out a competent partner for this extensive project. There were a number of providers to choose from. We decided on scc because scc has extensive experience and impressive references in the implementation of SAP based on SAP S/4HANA technology. As a full supplier, scc is also in a position to cover all key aspects for us, such as operational IT management and all HR-related topics.”
